The plan this year is to continue adding terrain for my various projects, with this in mind I collected a MDF stable from Charlie Foxtrot Models at WMMS on Sunday, for my Spanish terrain, the beauty of these is that they come with resin pan tile roof pieces, engraved MDF just does not cut it for me. I am keen not to generate a terrain mountain so I set to and got it rendered with Polyfilla and sand and when I was figure painted out on an evening, I put paint on it, and voila!
Now I have long admired Paul Eaglestones stable yard, I had some Empress Miniatures walls in stock and a visit to the local train shop produced some cobbles for the yard.
I shall leave the stables loose so that they can be used on their own if necessary, just need to fill a few gaps between the walls and do some ground work, I also picked up some water troughs from Ainsty while at the show together with some bits for a cemetery piece which will be up on the bench after the stables are complete, Paul added some fire steps to his walls I may do the same too.
In case you are wondering I have not forsaken Rawnstadt, I have started to add more colour to the various buildings.
While I was in terrain mode I decided to do something with a hill piece I had cut a road through, the problem was it would only fit on one specific terrain board (as featured in the photo below) so I decided to slice it in two to make two more versatile pieces, while I was on I spruced up the paint work, put in some steps leading to the ruined look out post and added more vegetation.
The plan for Monday was a Roman v Goth game, but due to the previously mentioned reason I have not finished the Goth cavalry unit required, so Monday will see a return to Spain but this time a 100 years on for a Spanish Civil War action.
