I've posted a few pictures on my blog for a new campaign I am starting, set in Elizabethan London, including a scratch-built version of the Globe Theater:

Very nice!!! What make is the ship ?

Shagnasty Supporting Member of TMP26 Nov 2016 12:21 p.m. PST

Wow indeed. I had a friend that built a tavern for a great Shakespearian brawl but this surpasses even that!

Absolutely wonderful. I immediately wanted to drag out my old Warhammer Empire army and FRP minis and play something on it. Inspiring job.

really good

It puts me into that reality. It is so good it is like a really great model that looks like reality shrunken down. Thanks for sharing. Wish I was there.

Wow is right. That is a stupendous undertaking and has come out very well.

I recognize many of the buildings as I have them, but most aren't built yet (or even printed).

I am seriously impressed.

It was the best of dioramas. It was the best of dioramas.

Amazing! Do you have any Guy Fawkes scenarios in mind?

tkdguy26 Nov 2016 9:22 p.m. PST

Excellent work!

Very pretty…but hasn't he built the wrong bridge?

Supercilius Maximus Supporting Member of TMP27 Nov 2016 9:20 a.m. PST

It does look a bit like the modern-day (actually Victorian) Tower Bridge, doesn't it. In all other respects, though, a wonderful layout.

bogdanwaz Supporting Member of TMP27 Nov 2016 11:38 a.m. PST

Thanks for all the kind words.

The ship is an old model of the Santa Maria, by Revell I think. It is 1/72 scale so I added a higher railing to the stern to make the scale difference a little less noticeable.

The bridge was definitely a compromise, it's a cheap wooden puzzle of the modern bridge. I didn't have time to modify it to a more Elizabethan look and it is likely not going to be playing a major part in game.

Wonderful layout. It's a shame that you're on the other side of the Atlantic, otherwise I'd get you to help out with teaching…

charared Supporting Member of TMP27 Nov 2016 4:21 p.m. PST

OUTSTANDING!!! (Any "how to" pics/advice?)


thumbs up

All the world's a wargame…

Really cool.

GGouveia29 Nov 2016 9:31 p.m. PST

Absolutely brilliant! !!!

_Much_ too clean for an Elizabethan London, Jeff! No worries, let some TMP'ers loose and it'll have a fine patina of filth, debris, detritus, and grime soon enough!

Ghecko Inactive Member04 Dec 2016 6:00 p.m. PST

Nicely done.

tkdguy06 Mar 2017 12:59 a.m. PST

Wow, it looks great! How did you make the cobblestone streets? I'm thinking of doing something like that.
