Building a terrain for a demo game, yet another French village - Normandy 44. I'm a touch behind with this so hopefully starting this thread will apply the necessary goad.

Right, well you have exactly one month to finish it off so I can game with my FJs on it. Get cracking.

There’ll be some Warbases walls and outbuildings, but the majority are Charlie Foxtrot:

or Sarissa (the all white building and the square house front centre) who are also very kindly providing some separate window sets.

I'm not sure it'll work for Pavis - although at present it does have much in common with t'Big Rubble.

Most interiors now done, apart from adding debris to the ruined buildings. I’ve also added more outbuildings to provide more cover - we’ll be using Chain of Command as a rule set and they do tend to punish my usual tactics of running across open fields.

I see I’ve gone slightly wonky with that hearth, will spread a little debris over it :)

Funnily enough Roy, there are a couple of things I wanted to talk to you about.

If only there was some way of meeting face to face in, oh I don't know, 2 weeks time? :D
