Mogadishu Terrain Updates

Mensaje  Wargame News and Terrain el Sáb Ago 17, 2013 4:01 am

Hi, Here are the first pictures of the hotel buildings for your conventions Mogadishu table. Note that the buildings is slightly based on the Olympic Hotel as seen in the movie Black Hawk Down but has been put together with a large portion of artistic freedom Wink I made use of the nice shape of the structure but altered the sizes to make the pice playable and sturdy enough for handling.



The first picture is the reference picture from the building on which the building is base. Another building will be added to one of the sides to make it even bigger but both buildings can be used individually. As you see much work is still need such as adding window frames, details, texturing, smoothing the edges of the foamboard, etc, the buildings will be primed as Guillermo decided to paint it up himself Wink 









If other clubmembers are also interested similar or other terrain such as spanish napoleonic village. Contact me as you might be able to save some postage if I combine the shipment of several orders. Here's a picture of a recent spanish village commission for a UK based customer.



Cheers

Timmy

Hi Timmy, glad to see you here! I'm pretty sure that combined with the crashed HeLo and the rest of the buildings the Mogadiscio table will be stunning.

The spanish village is also very nice, for napoleonics based games or the new "1650" game...hummm...

Hi Guillermo, Here are pictures of the side house for the hotel and pictures of the construction site.

The side building is almost finished but still needs some details such as a door, etc







The construction site, Still in progress (needs texturing, building supplies, maybe some scavolding, ...)





Cheers and I hope you like the look and progress!

Hi, The texturing depends but the side house was textured using ready made filler applied with a spatula.

Cheers!

But you didn't use sand or something to the texture itself? it's just the ready filler? (water based right?)

Hi Guillermo, The buildings are either textured with ready made filler of a plaster mix. While the ground is first covered in ready made filler and then textured with a sand mix. I think the most common brand of ready made filler is polyfilla. I hope this helps!

In the meanwhile here are the finished pictures of all the buildings and the recently finished construction site.

View of the loose bits and pieces including pipes, pallets and a ladder to access the upper level of the site.



Some pictures of all the buildings together!







Cheers!
