Issue 451 of Miniature Wargames (November 2020) has another of my series of article showing how I build practical and simple wargame terrain on a budget. Part seven is a Stone Cottage inspired by the resin models from Snapdragon Models. The model was built over a corrugated cardboard core with egg box card stones and slates. As with the earlier models I used these simple rules;
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.
I have included these images of the earlier tutorials;
