a 2 base combo for a village
Another 2 base combo village
A 3 base combo town
Another 3 base town.
A single base would represent a small village.
another single base small village
As you can see there are many combinations that will work with these simple base, mine are for the Peninsular, but simply swap the building for say thatched cottages and barns and you are transported to England. The construction is the same easy build see below.
3mm MDF base, 5mm foam board construction for the walls and roof. Roof tiles are made of corrugated card from an art shop. windows and doors and 1mm card painted black and details painted on, and frames made of card for effect.

I hope this short blog will help those looking for a simple but effective answer to represent villages or towns on the wargame table.
