MDF Buildings

At Derby Wargames show last weekend I bought some of the 28mm 4Ground pre-painted Anglo-Danish hamlet.

I bought 2 small dwellings and 1 large building. They are flat packed and you have to make them yourself.

The instructions that come with them are very clear and have colour photos to explain how to put them together. All the parts are numbered to avoid confusion.

They also have interiors with removal roofs for skirmish gaming. With a firebox, door and wooden slats in the windows. The above building even has a small hole in the wall. I used wood glue to fix them together and am very pleased with the results.

The thatched roofs use teddy bear hair which you then apply a 50:50 mix of PVA and water which you apply with an old toothbrush (Mrs Freewargamesrules would not be happy if I used her current one). This really gives the roof a thatched look.

The final purchase for the proposed SAGA game was a medieval Ox Cart from Sarissa. My mate Si and I both wanted several buildings so we pooled our resources and had discount on the purchases.

Again this was a doddle to put together and the nice guys said if I broke any parts when making the items to request a replacement and they would send it free of charge as they don't want negative views on their products. What a quality service.

They look very nice. I like the teddy bear fur, I was going to try $1 store bar towels.
