Last night I began to mess around with some scrap balsa and plastic card. I had nothing in mind but I did want to test out if all the bits I had lying around could produce something passable for the gaming table. In the end I think my measurements were a little on the small side, I have revised my plans for some Afghan type dwellings. Maybe the three litres of cider that I drank whilst making this had a detrimental effect?
Today I splashed out £4.99 on a book (big money for me as I usually buy from charity shops-I'm not tight just broke!). "On secret service east of Constantinople" by Peter Hopkirk. This chaps work is amazing and well worth a read but be careful because you will be ordering figures before the last chapter.
I would add that I use paint samples from the cheapest shops I can find, they cost around a pound and last for ages-dont use your expensive paints on terrain!
Thanks for looking.
