I have been enjoying painting Mike Broadbent's wonderful Toy Town figures. Here are some photos of the first units. I based the uniforms roughly on those of the First Schleswig War.

True toy soldiers … and they look great!

Those look great! I like the buildings also. Well done.

I went with a very minimalist look for the buildings in keeping with the figures. Most are built up from a single piece of cardboard, then a roof added. I was trying to capture the "Little Wars" look.

Nice. What are you using for rules?

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP25 May 2016 3:16 a.m. PST

I have a couple possibilities for rules, Howard Whitehouse's Gentleman's War, Bob Cordery's Portable Wargame, and the small unit version of TSATF.
