Well the ramshackled farmhouse is built and awaiting installation on a game board in the near future, but it would look silly on its own, wouldn’t it?
To turn the farmhouse in to a farmstead it needed a shed/small barn/man cave.
So here goes:
To make the below the following materials were used:
Foam core board
Cheap wall filler
GW earth wash
The finished article…..
Thanks for reading!
The bunker and farm house were part of my ‘annual leave project’, that was seven weeks ago – I’m a bit behind on the posts!
The bunker and farm house were both built over three Bolt Action focused days.
On one of the days Mrs J and I were off out in the afternoon, this left me twiddling my thumbs in the morning, to overcome the thumb twiddling I decided to make another military installation.
This installation was to be a mortar/machine gun pit. A small enough build to start in half a day!
This time I had a plan of the look in my head and I proceeded to start cutting foam board! Here are the results……
Hope you enjoy!
Until next time.
I was really happy with the way the bunker came out, so much so I decided to expand the terrain out and scratch build a ruined farm house.
Again it was a build as I went project. The only constant from the previous build was the height of the doors and ceiling.
Each floor of the farm house is a usable space, even the roof. I think for all my scratch built projects the more area you can use the more variety you’ll have.
The farm house was built using foamboard. I really like the solid feel the foam board gives once the poly filler has set.
Here’s the finished ruined farm house…..
More terrain has been scratch built, post to follow.
Until next time.
Whilst on a weeks leave I thought I would make a start on scenery and terrain for Bolt Action.
Although I have USMC units (and now Infantry and Airborne!) I fancied building more European terrain.
After a trip to Hobby Craft to pick up some supplies and materials, I set about building.
Being an engineer and working on a personal project, no plans were drawn up. Measurement were made throughout.
And now some action shots……
Till next time!
