I hate making mdf buildings. I hate painting buildings. I loathe making almost any kind of terrain. I can do it, usually to an ok standard, often badly, occasionally very well. I will leave you to be the judge.
Anyway, I had been planning to run a large Italian Wars game at the now cancelled 2020 Battleground show in Stockton. Pre pandemic I’d started buying suitable buildings to make a city which I though would make a nice end piece for the table. I soon ended up with more houses and stuff than I could shake the proverbial bricklayer’s hod at, but never mind. Most of the buildings are off a firm called Tabletop Combat (TTC) who do a great ‘Streets of Venice’ range of buildings in 28mm in mdf. Not only is there an extremely wide range of buildings to chose from, but they are relatively easy to put together even for ten-thumbed humans like me, and are much cheaper than other suppliers. I do have a couple of Sarissa, Warbases and Charlie Foxtrot houses as well, together with some plinths and fountains and such like to populate the streets. The Wall and the tall tower are Renendra and the lone shorter tower is an old Ian Weekly model. I replaced all the card roofs with plastic terracotta tile sheets which look quite effective, from a distance at least.
Nice set of buildingsReplyDelete
Looks fantastic Colin! I have a couple TTC buildings from the same range and I’m really happy with them.ReplyDelete
Well they look great to me Colin. I happen to love making buldings, terrain etc, probably more so than painting figures! I hope it all goes well with your hospital visits over the next few days.ReplyDelete
I couldn't face another Mediterranean building myself so you have my best wishes! Hope the hospital visits go well. The city looks lovely by the way.ReplyDelete
They look marvellous to me (but obviously if you cannot stand the sight of them I can happily supply you with my address...).ReplyDelete
Best of luck with the hospital visits.
Brilliant looking city :)ReplyDelete
Wow Colin! I haven't seen those particular Ian Weekly Italian City Walls since James Morris' El Cid Games he did for Warhammer Historical! Quite some time ago. I have to say, those Renedra Walls and Tower look very special and would be great in a game I have planned for when all this madness is over, the Battle of Dara 530 CEReplyDelete
Looks great Colin, we will just have to look forward to Battleground 2021!!!ReplyDelete
Very impressive you are underselling you’re skills 👍ReplyDelete
These look wonderful Colin, well worth your effort.ReplyDelete
