Building some town houses

Starting out in this hobby my first priority was to get enough figures painted in order to actually game with them. I managed to accomplish the task by November 2015 and proceeded to fight my first battle:

This took place before I had really started on creating on terrain so once I had the figures ready I could now concentrate on that aspect instead. After some experimentation with cardboard, filler, coffee stirrers and PVA glue I managed to settle on, what I think, is a very good way to make some Tudor/mediaeval style houses.

These are VERY cheap and easy to make and you really do not need any modelling skills to get good results, I hope you like it and it inspires you to have a go yourselves.


My Wargames table and figures

Last weekend in March I finally finished setting up a wargames table using block wood, old pinboards and some astroturf i managed to get from Lidl for 10 quid! All in all the table cost £21.90 which is a bargain by any stretch of the imagination. I have added a short video on my Youtube channel


Counting up the figures I have very nearly 1000 painted now and if that has taken me exactly 3 years that is 28 figures or just shy of a battalion a month which is not bad at all. Bear in mind I have also been spending some of that time creating videos and terrain so quite an achievement I would say.  Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to post any comments.
