Using some city walls that Richard Phillips has in production, I plan to add the walled northern city of Kedelkalak to this year's vision of Andreivia. I'll be needing to add some buildings to its streets of course.
Over the weekend I had a dig through the map chest where I keep things that might be useful for terrain one day. Having spent a day recently gluing together and cutting out boardgames components I suppose I was receptive to the idea of having a go at some flat-pack buildings I found therein.
First up is this low-profile shop I got free on the front cover of a model railway magazine I spotted on my weekly supermarket shop:
It's by Metcalfe Models and I have to say it was a joy to put together. It came preprinted and die-stamped in heavy grade cardboard with clear plastic for the windows. The instructions were comprehensive and very clear.
As you can see I added a suitably Andreivian name board in place of the English ones that came in the pack.
I also found some paper buildings I'd printed out years ago and filed away in the can't-be-bothered pile. I made this one first:
As you can see it's actually more like 15mm scale but it may find a place somewhere in the crowded streets of the city. It needs a bit of paint to disguise the white, cut edges.
The next building looks like it came from the same source as the above. I blew it up to 133% of the original size using my scanner.
It's a peculiar little structure; all doors and windows but it will do. Given the adverts on the sides it may see use in France for WW2 games too.
