    I made a watchtower for the 6mm medieval Japanese village. It’s basically some bits of card and an mdf ladder from Warbases, you don’t have to be too exact in 6mm. Base shown on its own and with th rest of the village. The whole village measures about 100cm x 50cm.

    Very impressive. Almost didn’t notice the farmers. I’d really like to visit that village. Were Shinto shrines of the era painted red?

    Tired is enough.

    Vermillion is very common in Shinto, especially torii. But I don’t think there’s a universal rule to paint buildings and torii that colour.

    Seriously beautiful work.  You could 6mm skirmish in there, 7 Samurai it!

    I revamped the small shrine so it fits better with the rest of the terrain, added some fields, and made some more forest bases with bigger trees.

    The revamped shrine:

    And the rest of the village currently:

    That last shot is the business, I could happily spend ages just looking at in IRL.

    Like I’ve said before, makes me want to take a walk in it.

    Tired is enough.

    Inevitable addition of a Fuji-san background 🙂

    The attention to detail is breathtaking! I am in awe.

    One of my favorite parts is the 2 people sitting under the tree.  Where did you even find sitting figures in 6mm?!?!

    Luckily, sitting down is one of the things that people do while waiting for a train, so sitting figures usually appear in packs of railway figures.

    Here’s another use for a sitting figure in a boat on the shore of a lakeside shrine. The shrine is a plastic model of Itsukushima by Fujimi. Base size 20cm x 10cm.
