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)!!

A Spanish windmill, that will stay in the plain.

For those you have read my previous post, you have seen some halfprepared buildings that were supposed to consist a proper terrain piece for my Peninsular war project. They were in this state for a while, since I was waiting from the post some Wills Scenics sheets (Pantiles) to make their rooftops (when you live outside England, these thigns may take a while...in times like these, I cherish my years in the Albion).

In the end, they've arrived. And I used them. And you can see the result below:

The windmill is movable - in case you have wondered. Also the rooftops are movable also and figures can be placed inside them (no photos I'm afraid).




















And some Lobsters for reference.








 I hope you like it.

Have a great Wednesday night everyone!

p.s: It's amazing what you can do with a tube of Pringles (paprika flavoured - my favourite). ;-)

  5. I only commented the other day that you don't seem to see Pringles in the shops that much these days here where I am (Perth, Western Australia). Now I know why - there is about to be an whirlwind of windmills on the local wargamming tables.

    Excellent work!

  7. Overall it looks pretty accurate Spanish architecture of the central Spain
    My only caveat is that you do not want to have a windmill built next to your house; they are terriby noisy. They are mainly located on hill tops and funnily enough, when you travel in windmill territory in Spain (La Mancha), you find that lots of modern windpower farms are more than often erected just on the same spot; so these guys that built windmills 500-600 years ago were no engineers but very smart indeed

  9. Great work. I do like pieces like this when everything is placed on one base to work together.

    1. Thank you and I agree with you. The only downside about this, is the lack of space I'm facing in my house... I get swarmed by all of my models, my fiancee will break up with me! :)
