Practical and Simple Wargame Terrain - part ten

This is part one of the tenth 'how-to' magazine article showing how I build simple and practical wargame buildings from everyday and easily sourced materials. Miniature Wargames issue 457 (May 2021) has full details of how this 1/56th scale Easter European Windmill was built (there will be a separate article on how it was painted and finished in next months issue).

For more information on the magazine contents - see this link.

Previous tutorials include; A Theme Park Cottage

A Prussian Barn

A Stone Cottage

A Timber Framed House

A Round Dovecot

A Thatched Cottage

European Barn

Wooden Shack

And Thatched Hovel

Next month will see the culmination of a year-long project which was originally written as a test to see if I could build simple wargame models from simple materials - the sort that you could easily find around the house like cardboard, egg box card, lollipop sticks and kitchen scourers. It is my intention to expand both the text and the number of images and produce a self-published Dampfanzerwagon Guide No. 4 Simple and Practical Wargame Buildings For Wargamers sometime in the next couple of months. The book/guide will be a full colour, A4 sized and limited edition book. If you are interested in obtaining a copy, please check back in a couple of months when I should have more details.
