More buildings

Another few days work Arab dwelling Started out as a yellow plastic box (part of a child`s toy I think) found on the street :D I cut out the windows and doors, added matchstick frames then plastered it with filler. The walls are Britains soft plastic, the bank at the end of the garden part of a Matc...

More cheap terrain

A ruined factory, built from bits of plastic walls, etc (figures just for scale) https://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r3/Richard_Baber/terrain/001_zpscbth9spe.jpg https://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r3/Richard_Baber/terrain/002_zps6cswvkcs.jpg https://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r3/Richard_Baber/terr...

Re: Viva la Mexican Revolution

I had the same email this morning, Manny allowed us to use some of his stuff in The Journal during my time as editor - he`s a nice gut, the Yahoogroup is quite active and has FREE stuff to download (for the WW2).

Cheap terrain

Today`s work built from bits found in the street. Emplacements These were some rubber car gaskets I found in the road, mounted on hardboard with filler to build up the earth and a few plastic Esci sandbags added. I`ve painted them as concrete, which was then buried (as you sometimes see on Normandy)...

Camel train

Camel train suitable for many periods 1800 - today :) These started life as a set by Tumbling Dice - very nice castings, but I added a couple of old Airfix camels and some Bedouin I found in the spares box - old Combat Miniatures I think? https://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r3/Richard_Baber/general/...

Re: Changing scales - 15mm or 28mm?

I find the size/space difference between 15 and 20mm hardly any difference at all - even storage wise they take up virtually the same space :) 28mm is in my mind a purely skirmish scale - a platoon at most plus one or two vehicles on a table. It also takes up far more room storage wise, unless your ...
