One thing we still need for Borodino is some buildings for the villages.
Pegasus Hobbies do a range of 1:72nd scale Russian log houses so I
ordered a couple of sets of each. They were about 8 pounds each from Wayland Games
They took about 10 minutes to assemble. The simple log house set comes with 2 houses so you can't really complain about that. Undercoated black and drybrushed in various brown shades they should be great for the game- sightly underscale but with the size of a battalion footprint I prefer them to be smaller and indeed 15mm buildings to represent buildings also works.
An hour later and they look like this. A quick undercoat and then heavy drybrush of dark brown and then a couple of lighter shades and we are good to go.
They look really good )ReplyDelete
