Practical and Simple Wargame Terrain - part seven

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;

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.

For details of this latest issue please see the this link.

I have included these images of the earlier tutorials;
