Back to the build, first up i set out the main design to the bases i will put be building 4 bases each will be 1 foot by 1 foot. this will allow me to put a bit more detail on the bases and still have the room to put, one of my large bases, and if required two smaller base to represent the village being garrisoned. The main design had to be simple but also interconnecting. I will use 1 base for a small village 2 for a large village and 3 for a town.
The base with its design drawn onto the board.
The basic construction using foam board
Start of the Vimeiro church
Our example board with its basic build
Roof and some detail have been added to the wall pillars and the house.
The church starting to take shape
With the basic construction finished i apply a coat of what i call fixing paint, a mix of sand , PVA and house paint this will seal the model.
our example with its first coat of fixer paint. The courtyards fixer paint has more sand and PVA mixed into it as i wanted to give it more texture.
I hope this has been of some interest, for those that are looking at building some terrain. The ideas, materials, and construction used are all simple, but give relatively good results. Thanks for reading till next time.
