The Nyudrev building society

And now for that terrible secret concerning the first batch of balsa buildings...(see previous post)

I'm loath to confess...yes...it really hurts to say that...
they were made by my lovely wife. And to make matters even worse, she's better at it than me. Please enjoy the work of Sabrina Nyudrev - Von Wunderheim.

-Buildings in several states of finish. As you can see, the top lifts of to reveal ruins. The miniatures in the pictures give you an idea of scale.-

-ooh, and hedges and fences and trees...-

In the "how to" section on the left you can find a link to the Leadgardens blog, where all is explained to make these splendid "classic wargaming buildings". As if there is any other way to make wargame buildings, in any scale...
 
I feel a bit silly now, having tricked the love of my life -after all her hard work- into a goblin green sitting room.
Happy gaming

Pictures

I know it's been a while...but there is so much to tell,  I won't even bother trying.

Instead enjoy these pictures of the Grenadiers de Franlysse. They featured here and they are a unit ready for battle know. I haven't got around to painting the wargames table yet, I'll explain later why this is...
But I wanted to see if everything would come together and look right to me.

-Note linen flags, NCO with soldered spontoons, and balsa house in the background.

-ooh, and the hedges and fences...and trees...

And have a look at the biggest Old School or Classic (what's in a name? ah yes, copyright and stuff) wargaming table ever painted...

-How about some 9 by 15 feet of goblin greenish surface...?


-Just a pity it's vertical...but then,  who else can say they tricked their spouse in having a goblin green feature wall in the sitting room.-

It did cost me 1745 pots of paint...GW shares went up last month. But, this job is the reason why the games table hasn't been painted...I ran out of green...

So now that all the have to's have been seen to, it's play time.
Oh, and there's a terrible secret shrouding the balsa buildings...but that's for later.
And there's books I picked up, and miniatures arrived from the USA...and...and...

Happy gaming
