With a gaming convention zooming in, I realized there was not brick building rubble for the sure to be demolished buildings. I will be working up the large collapsed buildings later today, but decided to make some small bases of them to use a Markers to place beside buildings that had been shelled, hit by random HE rounds or crashed into by walkers or tracked vehicles.


I am awaiting the delivery of the miscast brick wall sections to get the larger sections done ane will provide updates on them when they are.

Hi Alfrik,

A similar alternative might be ceramic bricks from a model supply company called Construction Battalion. There are available from Squadron, but, at the moment, appear to be out of stock:




They are 1:35 scale, but I've used them to good effect in a lot of my games (which are all 1:72/6 scale, ie, 20mm), for example:

They take white glue very well and I've used them for various bridge and other terrain projects:

Nicely done Alan. What game are you running at Kubla?

Cool but $16 USD for shipping? OUCH!

If you use plastics (or know someone who does), get a load of spare sprues and clip or slice them up into chunks about the right size for bricks. Knife-work takes longer, but doesn't leave a triangular edge on each piece. Then assemble like little bricks with plastic cement or superglue, and paint as per normal. Bit fiddly, but looks fairly good and is cheap and planet-friendly, after all you'd just be throwing the sprue away!

I will be helping run "Britan Invaded" that Skrapwelder is hosting, I get to help crunch numbers and adjudicated terrain etc… assistant GM. 5 game series, starting with the Prussians making multipul beach landings and pushing on London. Each games outcome influences the next game in the series.

I have assembled 12 rubble placards now, took couple hours to punch bricks and dress the bases, waiting for them to dry and will paint them up. Starting work on the Large bases now with partial walls still up.
