Back of Beyond buildings...

Hi Chaps,

I have had a busy few weeks getting married and applying for my wife's visa though to be fair oijai has done most (OK all) of the work. this has left me with not much to do except the usual housework and chores...but some time to paint.

I have been busy with my Empire army which is now a few units stronger than it was so I will give them a rest as all the colours, shirts and stripes are starting to irritate me a little. As a break I began fiddling with the foam that I bought from http://www.depronfoam.co.uk/ .This stuff was really cheap and actually works! Now that I know this stuff is for real I will scribe some brickwork for a more elaborate building, there was simply no way I was going to invest all that time unless I knew it would glue and take paint.

These two hovels are not finished but the sunshine was too good to miss, they took about an hour to throw together and in true Blue Peter style have bits from all over the house in them.




The figures are from Old Glory UK and are from the Boxer Rebellion page, I would buy more from this company as they are cheap and delivery is quick but my pet hate is that the site has so few pictures. I want to see what I am buying! I have no idea what the other figures from this range look like so if the chap who runs Old Glory UK ever reads this....

Buildings for In Her Majesties Name are now looking more affordable (one decent 28mm scale building should cost a couple of pounds to make) so maybe the next few buildings will be for Victorian England? I feel like Dr Who time travelling in miniature....on the cheap! I do look forward to seeing what you chaps construct.

  7. Great looking buildings. I could swear there was a site with some pics of the figs but can't remember what it was called. I was looking for Tong Gangsters and stuff and stumbled across it.
