More Little Bits of Africa

In the absence of any new figures to show you (see the previous posting to see why) I have added a few more pictures of some of the African shanty scenery I have been working on.

The first is a corner piece- a small badly polluted river that the local villagers used as their only souse of water. Its made from card, foam board and modrock, then coated in a thick layer of PVA and sand.

The foot bridge is made from chop sticks (from Waga Mama- in case you were wondering) and matchsticks. The barrels are resin and are made by Fenris Games, available on eBay.

I might add a bit of dry looking grass flock in patches as I think it looks bare, but otherwise I think it looks OK.

Next is my scratch-built market place. Built from balsa and corrigated card. Suitable scruffy for the locals of my shanty town to buy their water melons and AK47's. Inspired by the COD MW3 mission 'Fatal Extraction'.

Hope you like them. I have nearly finished the dilapidated mission church, and will soon start working on the shanties armed inhabitants. I have bought Force on Force and have begun poring over the rules- it looks exactly what I am looking for!

Nicely done! I like the color scheme you are using for this project: gives me the feel of depression, dullness, and dangerous.

thanks Jay. That was the look I was going for. I think I might paint my African Militia a bit brighter that the scenery- possibly with combat fatigues mixed with brighter coloured t'shirts, football tops etc. If you look at pictures of irregular African troops (or just Africans in general) the tend to wear bright colours. This will also help them stand out against the dawdy scenery.

Looks great multi use terrain I'd be happy using this for some Fallout inspired gaming
