African architecture in Age of Empires II

You may recall Andrew JN‘s previously featured Middle Eastern vignette or his working trebuchet from earlier this year. Andrew has done it again with this beautiful Al-Khahr, inspired by John Snyder and largely based on the African architectural style house from the newly released expansion for Age of Empires II.


This build has so many colorful details that leap out of the picture: the reds of the awning, the blue ostrich egg, and the lime green creepers by the front door. I love the palm tree with older dying branches hanging under the newer lime green canopy – and a monkey! But my favorite detail of all is the camel who appears to be giving his master a rather stubborn look!
