It’s Tuesday again and time to show off another piece of scenery for the war-games table. This is the Sarissa Manassas Stone House in 28mm which was a fairly easy build from the flat-pack, though I did manage to get the root cellar door on the wrong side wall and only discovered that when the glue had set. One overestimates MDF kits at one’s peril! It sits beside a stand of pre-made trees which I bought at a show and glued onto an old Windows CD with some ground texture and flocking, so perhaps this counts as two terrain pieces. Hooray!
The house will work for my ACW and alt-ACW battles. It has a big footprint on the table, so perhaps more suited for skirmish games. I didn’t apply any texture to the walls. Rather, I focused on the laborious task of picking out the stonework in every shade of grey at my disposal, to give the impression of an old field-stone farmhouse that one still sees in my part of SW Ontario.
Having the self-imposed deadline of a blog post on terrain gave me the incentive I needed to finish this piece and get it off the work desk. Hopefully it will feature here soon, as an ACW battle is next in the gaming schedule.
Blessings to your projects!
