Haven't had a lot of time for my hobbies lately but still managed to knock this up over the last few days.

It is made from spare parts, most of which didn't match, though for gaming that hardly matters.

I've decided it will function as either a courthouse or perhaps a small school. If you want to see some really nice home-made buildings check some of Thanos' work here: http//


  1. Pretty good for spare parts, I like the shading on the roof.

  2. Clever!!! Well done Al! That's a really nice terrain piece!Did you use any WS' DPM components for the walls?
    How did you achieve this colour on the walls? Did you use some commercially known colours, or some paint by the bucket from you local hardware store?
    I also like to thank you for mentioning my blog. Even though I still have a lot to learn, I can't ignore the fact that you like my work and additionally you are very very polite! :-)
    Thank you!

  3. Wow, thanks. Some heavy card and just bits and pieces from railway stuff, the paint is hardware store variety, though the washes are by Wonder Wash Inks, I think; the labels have long since gone.

    Walls were washed then drybrushed T, then about three lots of drybrushing, with each stage having more white added to the base colour I think lots of people like your work.

  4. That is made out of carboard!! Looks excellent. You must have covered it with some sort of plaster of paris to get the brick design or ?
    Chers for linking up my blog...the favour shall be returned ;-)
    I´m going to peruse yours further :-)

  5. Ah, perhaps I should have been clearer. I used cardboard to fill in the gaps between old sections of railway walls, always great to meet fellow Bloggers.

  6. For 'spare parts', that's dam' impressive, sir!
    You must have some very well-stocked spares/offcuts boxes...
