The next piece of terrain needed for my Rommel Project was some town bases. I searched about on the internet, it was surprising how expensive 6mm terrain can be, but I eventually found some nice pieces from Monday Knight Productions that were reasonably priced.
Although my playing pieces are all 6mm, 1/285 buildings are way out of scale for Rommel where each 15cm grid is a square kilometre in ground scale. I felt it best to stick with a uniform scale for the games. After some thought I decided 3 kilometres of town was probably OK. I may add one further piece to make a 2 km square large town block but we will see. I used 13cm square bases from Batbases and glued the buildings on them. What follows was the process.
|Glued building and then added some wood filler.|
|Same colours used as bases|
|I then painted each building a cream colour washed them Vallejo Sepia Wash and then drybrushed them white.|
|Decided to go with a central street as depicted in the photo above.|
|The mosque tile|
|An end piece|
|I like how they came out.|
