It's certainly been a while since my last post but that doesn't mean I've been neglecting my beloved hobby.
On the contrary, I've been busy putting together my first 4Ground buildings. These proved easy to make and are relatively inexpensive and should prove very durable for years to come. I brought mine from Warlord Games who provided excellent service and I took advantage of their free postage deal.
The thing I like about these buildings is how versatile they are. I'll be able to use them for my FIW, AWI and ACW projects. The blockhouse is still a work in progress as I intend to build two different stockades for it to sit in: one with a wooden pallisade for the above north American periods and another with an earth embankment for Spanish Peninsula games.
The blockhouse comes with a base but I've made my own from 3mm MDF for the two frontier houses. The added foliage was home-made care of Rodger Wood, terrain-master for the Southern Strategists. Check out his blog: www.rebelbarracks.blogspot.com
