15mm Card buildings
« on: September 15, 2018, 12:54:38 PM »

Also found these card buildings, marketed as for Italy, but again look suitable to my eye. The only issue is whether they stand the test of time with rough handling from gamers. But at the price, I don't think it would worry me too much!

If you hadn't noticed, I'm busying myself with some internet browsing as small consolation for not attending Colours. I'm 96.3% sure I will be at PBI day though and will be placing an order for my Mountain Tribe faction/force/team/group/army.

Sean,

It was very good, with a number of members of this Forum in attendance.

And I suspect the Mountain Tribes will have sold out too :)

Time will tell as you say Sean. I have a couple of card 20mm  buildings I am hoping to sell at the PBI bring and buy. They have been buffeted and bumped along the way and they look their age. They are for model railways but they have lasted me over 30 years!
I am making some Italian buildings using sturdy white mobile phone boxes.

Are not Mobile phones a bit too modern for the SCW.

Well it would be a good template to make a more substantial building out MDF and plastic card ? I would love the dimensions for it ?

Many thanks as it would be useful for Italian games, SCW and Western games.

Good find Sean, the church would also fit right into a modern colonial African campaign.

Unfortunately for me the seller wants 10.12 for postage to Germany which I consider to be daylight robbery.

I would appreciate it if you could also send me the dimensions.

I'll sort measurements out tomorrow as there are a few fiddly bits on the actual church.

This went together relatively well. The roof is a tad tricky to someone with sausage fingers! I need to decide whether I have the patience to build another 19 of them.

Agreed Mike 11.44 to get it posted here. A bit expensive. Much beter if it was just the *.pdf files that could be emailed.

Would also do for the POE land game.
