A less humble dwelling

Did not feel like painting but did feel like modelling, so added another residence to the pile. A bit more height in this one, but sparce on windows. For me, a wargames building is just a representation of the real thing and not 100% accurate, so when people occupy a building they can shoot from it on all sides...even if it is a blind wall. Keeps things consistent really.

The house is basically made of 3 premade blocks stuck together, of which the seams I hope to remove with another coat or 2 of Gesso.

Now I realise they are not Afghani per se, but have more of a generic Arab feel to them. Being pragmatic, I can see them getting used for Iran-Iraq, Lebanon, WW2 North Africa and whatever I think is appropriate. Keeping them geneic is a good thing in my book, and financially sound as well as I don't have the dosh to spend on buildings for each period I want to get involved in. And don't get me started about the lack of room :)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. I really like that Gunbird.

    Hell, a soldier 'makes' windows in a building when they need to shoot out....

  2. Nice work. IMO, you can not have enough structures in a game...lots of three dimensional elements for the trooper's tactical maneuvers.

  3. That's excellent. I've been wanting to try and do a building myself for a while.

  4. Go for it Stephen, they are really easy to do.
