15mm French Farm from Building Wargame Terrain

Both books, Damfpanzerwagon Guide No.1 Building Wargame Terrain and Guide No.2 More Wargame Terrain feature mainly 28mm scratch-built terrain pieces, however there is one tutorial in book one - The French Farm that is built to 15mm scale.

The building was inspired by a model in Fine Scale Modeler and built from scrap cardboard which was then clad with plastic card strips, watercolour paper and Milliput.

As you can see from these images, I mounted the building onto a scrap of thick plastic card and built up a diorama base with a cobbled street front and a muddy court yard to the rear.

The building has obvious Normandy architectural features, with the sloped corner beams and high pitched roof and would be ideal in a Flames of War 15mm game.

The final two images show the work-in-progress, actually a primed and 'washed' model waiting the first layers of paint.

I hope that you enjoy this 15mm detour from the mainly 28mm structures. The model was won by Big Lee (BigLee's Miniature Adventure) when I held a Prize Draw after the sale of the 100th book.

Should you be interested in buying either book, please follow the prompts featured in the top right of the main page.

Thank you.
