This 4Ground 28mm American Legends New France Pioneer's Cabin scenery set contains one (1) Pre-Painted American Legends New France Pioneer's Cabin terrain piece. Miniatures are shown for refernce and are not included.

This highly detailed laser cut wargames model joins 4Ground’s growing range of  American Legend buildings.  Like many in the range this building makes an ideal objective or terrain piece for The French Indian Wars, The War Of Independence, The War Of 1812-15, the Civil War, Wild West and even early C20th Prohibition Bootleg Gangs.

These well designed simple dwellings where often the birth place and homes of rugged ‘coureur des bois’ - runners of the forest - who in the first melt of spring ventured deep up country to peacefully trade various European items with the Indians for their winter harvest of precious furs.  Unlike the first New England Pioneers, the French still retained a rural medieval tradition of Log Timber construction; Poteau en terre - post in ground or earthfast construction - which was made with vertical log timber posts driven into the ground.  Though not as durable as ‘poteaux-sur-solle’ - post on cill - which was used in New France for larger buildings, this method was easier to undertake and much preferred to ‘pièce sur pièce’ - log piece on log piece - used by the British.  The inside floor was suspended from supporting posts and insulated underneath the floor, windows had shutters on the outside, the roof was covered with split shingles and the Chimney was constructed by making a wooden frame and infilling with coursed small stones.  So simple and yet well designed that for hundreds of years this small type of dwelling was built by the decedents of pioneering Acadians, Cajans (Canadians transplanted south) and Creoles of Louisiana.
