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)!!

How to make: Saxon Huts

Hi Chaps,

Hope you are all well.

These past few days, I've been working on some new projects, for a new game, that I think you already know, it is called Dux Britanniarum, which is a is a set of rules for wargaming and campaigning in the Age of Arthur.

Apart from painting figures, as you may have seen in my previous post, I have also taken the initiative to prepare some terrain pieces, such as the ones you'll see below.

Basically, I wanted to make some Saxon Huts. Generic huts. I took some balsa wood, pieces of vinyl tiles, an old towel (yes, towel - if you don't believe me, see this excellent article by Matakishi's site) and paints. 

The building procedure is shown in the photo sequence below. Simple really, not many fiddly parts to make your life difficult.

Hope you like them.

Ramble on!
