Miniature Wargames issue 443 (March 2020) has the second of my simple and practical wargame building articles in which I scratch-build wargame terrain using the simplest of everyday materials. For details of the first article/tutorial see this link.
This simple Thatched Hovel is constructed over a corrugated cardboard core with egg box card detailing and green scourer thatch. It was painted with a palette of acrylic craft paints and varnished with Galleria Matt Varnish.
I have included a couple of additional images showing the finished model.
Throughout the series I have tried to stick to the following (self-imposed) rules;
1 - The model should be constructed from simply sourced or everyday materials.
2 - The model should be generic and able to be used in a wide variety of different games or genres.
3 - The model should be robust enough for wargame club use.
4 - The model should be finished to a good standard and resemble the building it represents.
5 - Finally, it should fit into a 6 inch x 6 inch x 6 inch box - for easy storage.
