The colony expands

This is the hunting camp of the great Franz Josef. He moved in near the colony border recently. He usually provides his own food, and has a fowling piece and a large calibre rifle to do so. 
The figure is an IMEX pilgrim and the camp is made from cloth, match and bamboo sticks, rocks, moss, a HäT artillery bucket and spare musket... it provides a nice atmosphere.

A second wheat field is sown.

I also changed the huts to better quality and more New World-looking ones. There's also a high quality chicken (turkey?) coop.

Overview of the first two turns:
