The beginnings of a shanty town.......

........in 15mm from Ironclad , Khurasan and Peter Pig!

These were completed during the Analogue 2015 shenanigans but didn't count due to some scenery bias from the judges, anyway the majority of scenery (fences/buildings) is Ironclad(they were having a sale) apart from street lights (khurasan), telegraph poles (peter pig).

There will be more additions, some already painted, some not........plus possibly graffiti and posters?

Good pieces of kit from Ironclad.........













Not part of the shanty town but they were such a good price from Ironclad and when is there ever enough crates and barrels?

    I think a slight wash could really bring those roofs to life.

  6. That's a lot of work. And they didn't count it? Judges need a kick in the rear.
    Go for the graffiti!

  7. Those look pretty good. You should do something about those shanty towns in Franonia though. That's never a good sign.
