I've been busy making terrain pieces. Mostly MDF buildings and accessories for Zona Alfa. Now, if I hadn't been so fast with the 6mm Bolt Action I could use these for that. Having said that, I have a sprue of Germans and the remainder of the 8th army sprue, though they would be a bit out of their way in a countryside setting.
Let us take a look. A little picture heavy so I'll split it into 2 or 3 posts.
First some buildings.
The Farm house
A great find on eBay. They cost much less than similar pieces from the more regular wargames suppliers. Perhaps being 2mm instead of 3 is the reason. I'm not complaining!
You will see these buildings on blogs or aar's and the buildings will be as supplied. I decided to add some colour. I coloured what should be the inside of the building which is why the configuration will look slightly different from the others.The inside of the buildings are white which looks nicer than plain mdf brown.
The doors are not fixed. I left them loose so I can have them closed, open are not on at all.
You might notice that the farm buildings are done in Zandri dust. I'm keeping to basic sandstone colour so there is a local connection to the buildings.
I still have what is called 3 stables or sheds to assemble. It is a single building which looks like a row 3 connected cottages, which is what I will use them as. Having lived in a cottage of similar size at one time I know it will look fine.
