15mm Peninsular buildings

Yet another 15mm commission out the door although there are a few extra buildings for the project (windmill and tower). Let's try it again with the pictures added lol

Basic construction all by hand as this helps to give a more ‘natural’ look rather than using laser cut profiles. Some small sections had thin filler applied over them to help with the natural look. Textured paint was applied over then the whole lot was painted. Thin goop was put on the bases and suitably coloured then the growies were stuck on (three different types). Some trees were added and hey presto :-)

I’ll post up the remaining buildings once they are complete.

15mm Japanese building bases

I've had some more of these building bases to do for a vary nice chap in France. I quite enjoy doing but sometimes I find it hard to think of new layouts lol

Not much difference between these and the ones I've done before so I'll just leave you with some pictures :-)

Defence of the ford

Got a small game in on my refurbished terrain boards (more on those later) in which the forces of Saruman are probing the defences of Rohan in preparation for an all out attack.

All is quiet in the Westfold and a small patrol of Rohirrim are checking the fords to make sure all is secure.



Unfortunately, this is not the case and some roving bands of warg riders are looking for a way further into the Westfold without being discovered.


Also, unbeknownst to the Rohirrim a small group of warg riders had already crossed the river and were trying to sneak up upon them.


The warg riders began to swarm across the river but were met by the charging knights of Rohan!





Alas! One group of Rohirrim have been caught between two bands of warg riders and it doesn't look good


The fighting at the first ford is bitter with neither group giving ground.




The group in the centre are eventually cut down to almost a man...


But the fervent defence of the standard bearer wins out and he sees off the warg riders.


With the wargs at the first ford cut down the remaining rohirrim come to the aid of their standard and chase the wargs across the river and see them off with some final marksmanship.



So, a victory for Rohan, but a costly one.

What evils is Saruman brewing away in the tower of Orthanc and will the stout men of Rohan be able to stop him...


The rules used were a fantasy mod of M&T which is still having a bit of work done to it. No magic was used but we have a provision for it. The only change for the next game is to swap the movements of the animals round making he wargs faster than the horses.

Fortified Manor House - Part Two

So, this build is progressing well. The main hall is complete and now I’ll move onto the compound. I’m going to change the curtain walls and have them higher and limewashed (similar to the Norman hall) to help tie them in; I also wasn’t too happy with how they looked.

The windows of the Norman hall have been drawn and 3D printed. The drawing program was Rhino (which I have used for many years with work) and the printer is an Anycubic Photon. The first picture shows the windows used in the model and although they’ve been painted and washed etc they have needed no cleaning up whatsoever. I was certainly pleased with this outcome and can foresee more printed parts being used in my builds.

The figure is a Perry plastic WotR for scale.

Onsen

Quite an enjoyable build this one. It's an onsen (spa) for the sengoku period. The only catalogue items are the small additions sets, everything else has been scratch built.

The fences might make an appearance in the catalogue at some point in the near future.
