Mike over at Leven Miniatures sent me these bits recently, asking me if I thought there was a market for them. Personally I think this type of scenic is missing out of almost all scales and mostly gets covered via scratch building with the obvious mixed results.
I am writing about the above pictured statue base, and if you check below you will see the three sizes and types Mike has made. But keeping with the above one which is the biggest of the three. I have added a Adler Prussian mounted officer with a little work to turn the horse into a rearing position. Ideally I would have liked to get a French WWI 6mm figure as well to add a more modern twist to the statue.
The smallest one I intend to add a sun dial to at some point. I like to think that one of these in the middle of a town would look cracking, partially for the WWII and Modern games. Also mounted outside an imposing town hall they would do the trick.
I have already used the well on my Spanish building from last week, here I also have an impressive fountain shown in the foreground. This will end up somewhere within my German/Austrian town once I have found something suitable to mount on the pedestal.
The figures are some spare British ensigns, again Adler Miniatures. Also on the right is a water trough, I am guessing the upright section would be better painted as wood but not really sure.
I will let you lot or Mike have the last word regards that point. I would also love feedback on this. Would you buy pieces like these? What other pieces of unusual man made terrain pieces would you like to see in 6mm to add to our battlefields?
