Operation Sea Lion - Buildings

I was reviewing the 28mm buildings I have that are suitable for WW2 Britain and decided I could do with a few additions.

All the immediate searches pointed to an impressive array of MDF buildings. I realise that I may be in a minority here, but I just don't like MDF buildings. They don't have the depth I am looking for, and however detailed, they still look, well wooden.

My preference is for resin, but there is a surprising dearth of options. Plenty of buildings suitable for pre-20th century, but I have many of these already, some of which will still work for WW2. In the end I settled for two from the Magister Militum Battleground range. Their Georgian House and European 19/20th century house fit the bill. Be warned these are hefty buildings, the Georgian house in particular.

They paint up well, with plenty of detail and most importantly depth. These look and feel like real buildings. I am looking forward to getting these on the table in the next few weeks.
