A Walled Churchyard - Multi-Scale

I have a fairly large 'resin' pile as well as respectable plastic and lead mountains.

I needed some terrain for a series of games and I had none to hand so I painted up some of the resin.

A nice little church (more likely called a kirk in my part of the world).


It is 6mm in size so is fairly dinky, the maker is unknown to me but I'm sure someone will come along and remind me.


It seems a little bit lost and forlorn by itself so I made a walled churchyard to accompany it.


I used some grey foamboard which I had lying about which is about 3mm thick. I squared off a chunk about 150mm by 150mm. I cut some walls and pillars about 10mm high from the same board, chewed them up a bit to add some character and scored in some surface detail.



I glued them down with a mix of contact adhesive and brushed on superglue (it works great) and then added some further detailing with gravel, sand and static grass.

I had incorporated a little platform made from steel paper just slightly larger than the footprint of the church model which has a layer of magnetic tape glue underneath.


I had also added a few gravestones.


Altogether they look like this.


Although it is 6mm sized it does not look out of place with Warmaster figures (nominally 10mm but actually about 12mm).


See what I mean?


It is perfect for 6mm Napoleonics.


And pretty good for 10mm WW2.


What do you think guys?

    1. I would have thought that this was a Hovels product but now I think it isn't.

      I'll have a poke around.

    1. The Graveyards not big enough.

      Have played 4 times recently with them, Dark Elves (2) and Bretonnians(2), only won once.

  6. I forgot to mention that the round area with no static grass is also steel paper. I hope to add a small tree on a magnetic base.

  7. I'm led to believe that the church was made by Simply 6 who are now out of business.

  8. Second City (http://www.secondcitygames.co.uk/userimages/procart33.htm) do something similar but for an excellent range of 6mm including a variety of churches try Leven Miniatures.

  9. lovely stuff! The great thing about churches is that they can provide service in over 1000 years of European conflict, as well as most medieval fantasy worlds. Beautifully done Jim!

    1. Thanks Joe, I do have my moments when things go well. Couldn't say the same for my current playing record, 4 games 1 win.
