Work in Progress - Adobe Buildings.

I picked up a trio of MDF adobe style buildings from a gent called John on eBay for £9.00 including free postage.

You couldn't buy the materials to make them yourself for that!

Quickly bashed the basic buildings together - you get a 'small', 'medium' and 'large' selection, the large one coming with a side element and a walled garden.


Not added the side structure yet but glued the walled area to a separate base. So far very pleased, the buildings fit together well and are very simple to construct. All come with separate doors and roof hatches. There is clearly plenty of scope for additions and modifications but I will probably keep mine fairly simple so I can use for different periods and settings from Wild West games to Pulp Alley.


Picture below from the eBay listing by John.

Cavalier 2017.

Attended the Tunbridge Wells Wargaming Society show, Cavalier again.

Yet again a nice little show, not quiet the 'shopping-fest' of Salute!

SEEMS ran a zombie game this year which went down well by all accounts and our buddies from the Anti Alchemists ran a WWII game featuring some very deadly 'Green Devils'. My favourite this year had to be the very 'do it yourself' participation game "Fenris Descending" run by the Maidstone Wargames Society. I don't know how they didn't win ' Best Participation Game' of the day...

Elite fallschirmjager assault a building occupied by American troops. 14 US casualties and a room needing re-decoration was the result...



A great day, spending a lot of time just chatting to fellow gamers.

Managed to avoid buying too much this time, ending up with some pagan witch figures from Colonel Bill, some trees from Last Valley and a new KR multicase for my increasing 7TV collection!
