"Arabic" village

I had made a middle eastern adobe type village for my 15mm colonial figures some 30 years ago, but I decided (5 years ago at least!) to add another for my 20mm/ 23mm figures for Somalia and Iraq and Palestine circa 1914 to 1920s.!! As you do! (Not for my Rif War figures,I did them previously if you ...

Re: Inspired by... a factory complex is born

Richard, Good luck with the home move. I guess its a career move too! Early retirment or transferring the hospitality skills to your new venture abroad. Either way enjoy. :) I forgot you were all moving this year. Must have been worrying it would not happen with covid restrictions. Glad we got our h...

Re: Inspired by... a factory complex is born

Richard Cheers. You make good scenery! And you kindly share them with inspiring photos that have prompted many a creation for my Rif Wars, and elswhere. On this occasion, Shaun inspired this effort, with a mind to it being an Eastern Front piece for future WW2 games. Many more done in lockdown by co...

Re: the latest winter building for the escape club

Shaun & Richard, your exchange made me chuckle.... Richard keen to buy... Shaun too busy with other sales to sell... Eye candy rather than sales pitch... Richard is right they look good, just need some wrought iron railings... perhaps the old plastic zoo railings by Britains would work? Hopefully Ri...

Re: restoration of monochrome WW1 French photos

Some images wouldnt be out of place in a Franco Prussian War image like the Zouaves or the wooden wagons that could be Napoleonic in style!
Forgot there are a couple of aircraft too.

restoration of monochrome WW1 French photos

Here is some great inspiration for uniforms and vignettes, as "restored" (really colourised monochrome photos, an artwork in itself) covering mainly French uniforms, guns, wagons, colonial troops in France, bomb damage to homes and works, and bombshelters. http://babelcolour.com/ww1/?fbclid=IwAR0Vmy...

Grant, thats a good idea!

There is a small model railway shop in town (Whitby), it may re-open today and may have one I can play with!

I have other bits to finish so may come back to you for ideas as soem of its rail related as its part of my Stalingrad rail yards theme.

Inspired by... a factory complex is born

Inspired by Sean's factory, I recently got out the second hand railway model buildings I had bought but not made progress in "converting" and this is the first to be completed and the largest. It combines two railway model buildings. I hope to use it for Eastern front (or trans Siberian) games, from...
