Sands of Sudan - Mosque

Having sorted out a small village or a large hamlet (do they have hamlets in the Sudan?) I thought it would be nice to have a mosque. I'm not aware of anyone making a mosque in 10mm (I'm still looking) so I thought I would make one instead.

Here it is:

I built the main body ( a box shape) from 2mm plasticard.

I added arch shapes with another layer.

I made a minaret with some plastic tubing and miscellaneous items from the bits box.

Now I have to paint it.

Sands of Sudan - Buildings

I need some buildings in 10mm to populate the battlefield for my Sands of Sudan Project.

I got a pack of adobe buildings from a company I have not used before.

A village pack of 4 buildings came at a good price of £10 including P&P so looked a bargain.

They are easy to construct using PVA in about an hour and I left them to dry overnight.

I plan to tart them up just a little bit, removing some of the straight edges, basing them and maybe improve the 3D look.

I note that they have gone out of stock and the company are trying to clear their 'covid' backlog. I will certainly purchase some more in due course.

Meanwhile I will have a go at a larger building using plasticard, maybe a mosque or a palace. I have placed an internet order for some plasticard so it will be a few days at least.
