One of the problems using 54mm figures for gaming is you suddenly find your buildings/scenery are to small !, using 40mm it isn't noticeable but by the time you get to 54mm it is !.
I tried making a house myself - using foamboard , its the new wonder product for the gamer to make things from - I've read the articles by talented modelers making wonderful things using it . Its a creation of Beelzebub to tempt the unwary , I tryed , I used a lot of bad language and failed miserably , there are not photos of my effort - I spare you that . My inability to cut it squarely didn't help, getting it to glue didn't help either . I threw it on the fire and rejoiced !. Then I turned to TVAG, he does PDF printable 54mm buildings in the 'Funny Little War' range . I bought and downloaded it - the result is to be seen in the accompaning photos .
The only problem is getting it printed onto suitably thick card , my printer (a willful machine - a distant cousin to foamboard I believe !) dosn't do thick card , however I am pleased with the results .
Here it is seen in action as it were , you see how big it is and this is only one of the smaller buildings .
I've decided to set up a small 54mm battle to play with my toy soldiers . I will be using a set of free downloadable rules called ' Edwardian Splendour' , Tilley the cat is a keen student of all things wargaming and is seen inspecting the opposing armies deployment. I will report on the battle as it unfolds.
