Blessed is the mind too small for doubt

Went in because the wife needed something, and found this:



What on earth is that, i hear you say!

Well, as usual, action stores are three months early with their christmass decorations  Grin Grin Grin

I always have a look to see what i can salvage for the greater wargaming good, and came across the above item.

It's this little one right here:


a quick glance made me believe the house would fit a 10 mm model, and at 1,99 the price was quite good. A bonus is that the casing can also be used to display a model.

started cutting and got this:


a comparison to some 10mm celtiberians



Only work it needs is to fill in the sides of the house, because it sports a christmass tree


time to get busy!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy


 I believe they carry the same stuff in every action store in Belgium, maybe in other countries too, in case you are interested in cheap houses!

Good find and very tempting, Peter - but stay focused!   Tongue  If it's very, very cheap - perhaps, 'yes.'  Undecided

Otherwise - 'no!' Stick to the 'real thing' by Pendraken (going by the doors, looks more 6mm to me).     Cheesy

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

I'm always focused on my 20 (or so) projects. This is cheap filler terrain for towns.

To fill the sides, cereal box with pre cut windows? Wink

Yes, they have great pva style glue that i use for flock, and their acrylic paint tubes are great for scenery projects (not to mention their cement texture paint)

I use their toolboxes to store counters and organise my boardgames too!
