    Now this is for my 10mm Warhammer games, but being terrain it could be of interest to others so I will post it here.

    I started a 10mm town/village, let’s go with town… I started a 10mm town but sort of stalled recently, I was not sure why.
    I have found impetus again and I think it is due to thinking about my old 6mm sci-fi town of Anshan.

    So I am going to not only base all the buildings but base the whole town in a sort of modular stylie.
    This will allow lots of opportunity for modelling fiddly things that were they not part of a scenic base would be impractical.

    Here is the likely layout based on what I have and what I am about to order:

    Looking good.

    I did something similar for my 6mm Sumerian city.

    Since I finished the essentials I have started several expansion/ replacement pieces to allow the place to represent different places – but all are languishing in various stages of unfinished!

    Quite a few bits and bobs have arrived for this, moar buildings, carts etc.

    Not really done a lot but here is the current state of play:

    Nice. Both are looking cool.

    Been doing some more work on my 10mm WFB village.
    Still quite a bit to do, then they need to be ‘jazzed up’ too.


    Looks like some heroes are due to visit.
    That does not bode well.

    I’m loving it – if you didn’t tell me it was 10mm I would think it’s a larger scale!

    Both the “old school” feel and the full and half size bases for the modular layouts are very much up my alley. Makes me want to get some warhammer-esque fantasy going, but should probably stick to 15mm as I already have some stuff for it. Definitely following for inspiration!

    Out of curiosity – where are the minis from?

    Oh guys!  You have me salivating.

    Thanks both, I will do some more detailed shots later.
    I need to add more bits to the standard buildings to make them less historical, though I have started with a few posters.
    Plus extra gubbings like cart wheels, piles of wood for the fire, sacks, barrels, livestock etc.

    The buildings are from Battlescale.
    The civilians are Pendraken.
    Felix is from Copplestone and Gotrek a converted model from Cromarty Forge.

    Started adding bits to my 10mm WFB village to add some flavour.

    I like that pile of firewood.
    Matchsticks looks just the right size for timber. I was considering using matchsticks to build stuff for 6mm but now I think it might be too big for that scale.

    Tired is enough.

    Naw T, matchsticks will work fine for timber in 6mm, but way to big to be lumber at that scale.

    I had to check the online dictionary and for 40 years I’ve thought TIMBER was processed wood and LUMBER was the log.

    Tired is enough.

    Very nicely done.  I like the separate bases and the extras you have added. Pendraken have lots of figures for this type of terrain.  I am thinking of making a geese/duck pond for mine.

    Thanks all.
    I am trying to think of other detritus to add to make it more lived in and add variety.
    I think I may make some extensions and maybe more barrels and wooden stuff.

    Yeah, all the civilians and animals are Pendrken.

    Shop stalls and little tents for visiting caravan to fill that large square?

    How about a village lock-up? (‘Though us Moonrakers would call it a ‘blind house’, due to the lack of windows.) Or, if you are having a pond, a ducking stool. (How do you know she is a witch?)

    Soil heaps, would be appropriate. How about a grave yard?

    You have answered your original question – an enormous set of scales…

    Seriously, market cross?
