Hi everyone, just wanted to show the use of 2mm Brigade Model buildings for 1/2400 games (or maybe 1/1200, too). These are from the England Town pack, purchased from the lovely

A small French coastal fort

A 1/2400 Tumbling Dice 74 gun ship-of-the-line

And for a boredom killer, a small coastal town, base was made from slicing up an old wooden clipboard

Town and fort together

I will be making another purchase soon, and building a replica of the Spanish fort that Horatio Hornblower was imprisoned at, in the Ioan Gruffudd series!

Thanks for looking!

whats that water surface made from?

Jake R Supporting Member of TMP24 Feb 2017 7:14 p.m. PST

Thanks, everyone! Glad you enjoy it!

@Rockatansky (which i hope is a Mad Max reference) The surface is just your everyday mottled blue cotton fabric from a craft store, and then I lay a sheet of clear plastic vinyl over it -- the kind people use to cover outdoor furniture, and the likes. You can get it from any home improvement store.

Also, side note: if you store the plastic vinyl rolled up tightly, it'll give you those subtle wave/swell effects when laid out.

Looks great!

Nice work.

Looks geat Jake. I bought some of these 2MM troops and buildings a while back for my 1:1200 scale ships. The buildings were too small, better suited for 1:2400 scale. The troops, limbers and wagons were perfect. I also agree your water looks very nice.

The thumb looks a bit overscale in the first photo.
