Hello everyone!
I'm new to the forum. I'm working on a 40mm Alamo set up using Sash and Saber and Gringos as well as some commissioned figures. I've tried my hand at building the compound myself, but that's a bust. Before I look over seas, is there anyone in the US that would take this project on? I have the King &Country facade which actually works perfect for 40mm.

Hi there. I built a 40mm Alamo compound myself. I used a 54mm BMC fašade for the chapel. I altered so it is not as wide. Then I built the rest of the chapel around it using foam parts. I made the chapel smaller in size than true 40mm but I think it came out real well.
I thought about using the King & Country fašade but that is really a heavy piece and I wanted it more light weight.

Perhaps Doug at Terrain concepts would build you something? He is a great guy, good to work with, and his work is great.
Sorry, don't know how to do links.

The whole compound in 40mm would fill two ping pong tables. How much are you doing? 28mm Hudson and Allen fills one ping pong table.

I knew a guy that ran a 40mm Alamo game and each day would have an attack representing each wall at a time.

Even in 15mm (with OG's excellent model) the whole Alamo is a big place.
