Chinese Pagoda

Another Warbases offering complete with golden Buddha.

Sorry, my garden fence is pretty level, my grandsons sandpit table is not.

There's a lot of bricks and a lot of tiles, all hand painted.

Buddha is within.

This is a 10mm Pendraken Austrian Napoleonic unit.

This is the built up area without troops.

They are all work-in-progress.

I need to adjust the scaling.

    1. It's a lovely model, a bit more complicated that it appears but does the job nicely.

  2. Nice pagoda and I must say I love the simple terrain and buildings:)

    1. I really like the pagoda.

      The simple terrain is under development, watch this space.

  3. Jim,

    The pagoda looks great ... and your 2D terrain has lots of potential. I like the way they fit in the gap that separates the hexes from one another. I look forward to seeing how you take this concept forward.

    All the best,


    1. I think the principle correct. It now remains to get the execution processed and their implementation into a game.

    2. I was thinking the same as Bob. Having seen the 2D approach elsewhere, I have been impressed with the 'look' and convenience of such set-ups. I infer that the picture shows a 3-hex built-up area, but how would you 'do' two or one hex BUAs? I can think of ways, but am interested in seeing your approach.

    3. Like all good systems the answer is simple. A one hex BUA is a 2 sided terrain piece and a two hex BUA uses two of them.

  4. Looks good, Jim.
