Every well down sir.

That's spectacular. I notice in your earlier posts that the town was walled. Is that just a different configuration of moveable buildings or is the buildings now more permanently in this configuration?

Well done. Super job!

Hi N0tt0N

The original set I bought off ebay was walled – I decided that I wanted to break the set down and base the various buildings. The walls were used to build some of the bases you see above. That way the 'walled buildings can be used on their own as farmhouses, villas etc.

Sneak peak of the battle we played Monday illustrates this

This battle will be posted up in the near future

Awesome once again!

I really like how the bases work so well together -the village looks so very lifelike. The non straight angle streets really add to this without making the village look too chaotic.

Great looking buildings. I've read where the window shutters of these buildings in Spain and Portugal were normally colored. A green or yellow being more preferred. I know to at least some degree, this was also done in Italy. I realize the buildings on my blog do not reflect this, but I wasn't entirely aware of this until after the fact.

Great work, indeed! Perhaps you could dull the colour of the roof tiles a bit, with greens, grey-greens and browns shades, to simulate the wear of the tiles caused by the elements and birds! (you should see how birds love to Bleeped text on roofs! Nasty little beasts!) If you include some buildings with wooden roofs, it would look even more realistic.
