Hello,

The little village of St. Michelle has been seen a lot of combat over the years. It started life intended for a 6mm WWII product. It has sense morphed into a sleepy back worlds periphery planet whose residents maintain their "primitive" town, ala firefly. The town sees many Mechs marching through its streets.

In the past, the town was simply placed on the board with no rhythm or reason. Finally, the city council decided to but in some real roads. It is so nice that the community has a space to park their cars now.

The buildings were painted and purchased from Timecast many years ago. I wanted to create a proper suburbs area for the town.

Please enjoy this small terrain project.

Very cool. I like the look of the town. Very detailed for 6mm. I think they photograph like 15mm.

Nice, but their layout looks more like the UK than northern Europe, with the space between buildings and back yards, to me. Still, very nicely done to fight over.Geeat painting jobs.

For some reason, the Monkees' "Pleasant Valley Sunday" came to mind seeing the lovely calm, peaceful suburban setting.

Reminds me of the part in A Bridge Too Far where they were climbing from backyard to backyard.

Splendid. What did you use for the base?

Thank you all for the kind words.

The base is plastic card sheets that were stacked and glued together. The sidewalk was grooved/slashed/cut to simulate sidewalk panels.

The fencing is balsa wood and the driveway/walkways were thick cardboard.
