Home Guard Town (5) - Completed

I needed to have roads from the edge of the town to get to the gaming table sides; being lazy I cut up an old faded grey T shirt into 3 inch strips to match the road width on my town base boards - shown below is one of the T shirt road sections ..

Choosing a name for the town has been on my mind, finally thought up one which appeals to me
 Freazingham - by - the - Sea

East end of town showing pier etc; the church has been repainted and looks much better ...
The west end of the town..
The whole town, it takes up most of the table, but should be great for gaming,
as the town is on two boards I can separate it so can have east or west part on one side (or edge) of the table for more flexibility; perhaps the town should have a small harbour or nearby fishing village - I have a suitable coastal module design for my pirate games which could be re-used.
Finally some new recruits for the home guard, to add to my existing figures I've modified a couple of Valiant british infantry..
These look OK, so I'll do some more conversions.


  1. Looks nice enough to spend a seaside holiday at !

  2. Excellent! An attractive seaside town to be sure.

    There is a suggestion I would make, though it is probably too late in the day to try it. That is to have a street at the back, the other side of which are fairly densely packed with building frontages to a depth of no more than half and inch - or even just a backboard.

    What that would do is give an added visual depth to the town, and there is nothing to stop you using those building frontages as if they were the 'real' thing, effectively adding a few inches to your playing area.

    Having said that the layout you have is just great, and I can envisage hours of fun. You might also consider the possibility of a French town, Frigidarium-sur-Mer, that could be the object of a British Dieppe-like raid...


  3. Thanks for the suggestions, a low relief add on at the back would be useful

  4. I bet there is a novelty rock emporium.
