As the title – I see Hovels has two buildings in its 20mm range, but was hoping for a wider selection.

What is anybody else using for their WW2 Russian front games please

Thanks

Marc

And as an add-on request, I prefer ready painted.

Thanks again

Pegasus Hobbies seem to have 6-ish, including a couple pre-painted: link

Also, associated fences, stonewalls, animals, etc.

The Pegasus buildings pre-painted are very nice, and the unpainted are easy-peasy to assemble and paint.

The paper buildings look good for micro scales but has anyone experience of using them in a larger format – I wonder if the printing and details work when larger.

The Pegasus are possible, as are Lancers. But seems like there is not a great deal of selection/variety out there. Lots for Europe, less for Russia. Maybe because they are relatively simple structures.

Pegasus, Lancer and others have suitable models, and you could always buy them painted, if you contact s painter service.

All depends where you live.

Another solution, if not problematic, go with some of the FoW/GF9 15mm stuff, as some of them could work with 20mm – you didn't stated the rules system.

Rules are BGK, so semi skirmish, and buildings are more "individual" than "representing a BUA"

My favourite rules, and if you look in the ruleset, one hell of a lot of the buildings are Lancer Miniatures

I can definitely recommend the Pegasus ones.

he makes great buildings. Highly recommended. no detail spared.

I like the pegasus buildings as well. I think conflix/imex makes a house or two that are prepainted but they are hard to find

Legends-in-time.com still has limited stock of the Conflix/Imex models.

Paper designed for 1/72 or 28mm looks quite good. ou do need to reinforce with matboard or foam core, but is pretty easy to get the hang of. Can't beat the price, and htey are in color so no painting necessary.

Check Wargame Vault they have a good selection.

Ok, with some misgivings (about my ability, not the product) I have gone for Greg's mdf links above. The cart experience on one of them was painful, but I got through it alive – phew.

So next challenge will be how to paint them, and that leads me to a question – what was the roofing material? I can see in pics of the Ukraine that thatch was used (dark twig like colour, not wargamers' golden yellow straw), but other wargaming pics suggest something more like tar-paper or lead. And wood of course.

So has anyone found any useful links to building styles and materials on their travels around the internet please? Or of people who have painted Russian style mdf buildings and have any hints and tips please.

Thanks guys

Marc

I would go with wooden plank roofs, unless clearly another material is being modelled.

Walls are wooden either unpainted or painted in any colour. Contrasting, very ornate wooden door and window frames. The last picture looks good.
