Home Guard Town (4) - Pier Completed

The pier I was working on (see previous post) has had a quick paint job. I also finished it off with a small building (perhaps an amusement arcade) made from cardboard and some spare plastic roof sheet.

Home Guard Town (3) - work on the pier

I managed to get my coastal modules set up on the gaming table last night and started work on the pier; I used a bit of spare MDF board cut to shape and for the underside I cut down an oversize plastic jetty from the oddments box and added some extra upright supports with hibachi skewers and cardboard
After that some railings made from cardboard; the pier awaits its building and a lick of paint ....
I also bought a police box from Hornby Skaledale range and actually finished painting a figure for the project - a policeman (from Irregular Miniatures).
Excuse me, where's the nearest toilet ?

Home Guard Town (2) - Sea front road sections

I've finished the two front add on sections which form the sea front road, I started painting the roads but I ran out of paint - doh ! , bad town planning :)
Next step will be to get the coastal modules on the table and make a small pier.

Home Guard Town (1) - first layout and scenics

I've finished the inital layout of the home guard town area bases; the roads need painting but the first simple scenics have been added; pavements using Metcalfe sheets; cobbled areas using my own made up sheet; and grass areas from a Citadel game mat.  Still have to paint in the roads.

The posh end of the town ...
The rest of the town ...
The home guard on patrol ...
is the Pub open yet ?

Home Guard Town - first try..

First attempt to layout my seaside 'home guard town', the base boards will be setup with the roads etc on, the buildings will stay separate. In front of the main boards will be the seafront road. Church needs a tower ...keep me busy for  while .....

A nice little map of Walmington-On-Sea,

Sourced from; I'll be using this as inspiration for setting out my seaside town.
