Building Based.

Hey All!

Finished the first piece of modular terrain for my Ost front boards last night; its a Russian farmhouse and garden.

The piece is based on a 6" x 8" 4mm hardboard covered with tile grout/pva for soil and various flocking materials for vegetation. I used a chunk of indoor/outdoor carpet for the base of the garden and cut-up bamboo skewers for the fence pieces (still have to wash and drybrush). The bamboo is surprisingly strong even when split. The building is made from cut-up coffee stir sticks and is based on pictures of Russian WWII-era farmhouses (although a thatch roof would be more correct).

I spaced the terrain features to allow a medium base to fit on any side of the building to ease miniature placement. A simple idea could be to allow any miniature placed on the terrain base to benefit from that terrain type thus no need to balance the minis on top.

I will be working on some roads and other buildings next.




  1. Great building and the basing makes it even better, good work.

  2. Very nice. Always loved your work in either 6mm or 15s.

  3. That's the best building I have ever seen!
