Monastery (2) - The Monks Arrive

A simple paint up where needed and some scatter on the bases and the new abbey buildings are ready; I've mixed them in with other buildings from my scenic stock to show the monastery of St Wigberts. This monastery is only 5 miles from the capital Wittenberg.

The monks from Alt-Wittenberg arrive and are greeted by the Abbot (the treasure beehives have been transported safely).
