Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Normandy on the move!

Good day to everyone!

Today I decided to show you (yes again, I know that it becomes tiring), two new houses I made for my Normandy project.

Since my budget is tight at the moment (I had to buy new curtains for my apartment. . . :lol:), I continue to scratch built some Normandy houses, hoping that eventually I will have enough for my project.

Enjoy! (Or at least pretend you do)!! :-)



  1. Really nice buildings Thanos. Are the roofs removable ?



  2. Nice one Thanos. Well when you get the budget, I have just the windmill to your Normandy project...LOL .
    Nice project nice build.

  3. They look very good! Are they made of foamcore, or something else?

  4. Scratch building is more impressive than buying pre-made stuff anyway. These look good. Are the tile roofs made from sheet styrene?

  5. @ John: Unfortunately, I haven't yet reached the level of making the roofs removable. I hope to get there in the future!

    @GEM: I've seen the windmill my friend, and I think it is a great piece for any project!! I hope I am not causing any trouble to your effort in the market! This is clearly not my intention!! :-)

    @Easternfunker: Walls and chimneys are from foamcore (with some wall filler on them), roofs are Wills slates, Windows are from Auhagen (#43648) and drainpipes are from Wills also.

    @Andrew: The tile roofs are made from 00 Gauge Wills sheets (I found them in

    @Everyone: Thank you all for your kind words!!! Your level of acting is impressive!!! :-)

  6. Great job. What rule system are you thinking of using them with?

  7. @Greek_Geek: For the moment I am only collecting and painting figures and make some terrain pieces. Up to now, I haven't played any wargame with other people. I know a place here (Wargames club) in Athens, but I didn't have the time to visit it and see what kind of games they play. Ellinas eisai?

  8. Nai... I'm trying to accumulate some WWII skirmish/platoon level figs as well but I have too many projects going on at the same time. Have you tried They have some good skirmish stuff (Lionel Tar rules and Hit the Dirt being prime among them). The wargames club is OK, but the range of games played is small. I have some friends there and a lot of Flames of War goes on and some home-brewed stuff. Where in Athens do you live?

  9. Hey Thanos don't worry about that. I wasn't thinking on that and your scratchbuilding is very good. Keep it up. Cheers

  10. Nice work Thanos, you are really doing some fine work mate.
