MOS ESPA - Scratch Built Terrain for Star Wars Article in Miniature Wargames issue 432

The Mos Espa article in Miniature Wargames issue 432 (April 2019) is a bit of a landmark for me as it sees modelling articles written by me in both Wargames Soldiers & Strategy (see this post) and Miniature Wargames at the same time. This is not the first time that this has happened, but is unusual enough to be special.

The Star Wars themed domed house is based on the Tunisian film set which has recently been renovated by Star Wars fans and was built from spare foam with a DAS and filler rendering.

The original project was modelled and written for the forthcoming Wargames Terrain and Building - North Africa book from Pen & Sword (my second book from P&S due in 2020) but was cut at the last moment as the commissioning editor wanted historical themed models rather than Sci-Fi or fantasy terrain. John Treadaway (editor of Miniature Wargames) has reproduced the article as fully as possible with lots of work-in-progress images in a format which I believe shows off the step-by-step construction and painting more fully.
