28mm mdf buildings

Post by Amesburysaint »

Hi all

I'm looking to buy a few 28mm mdf buildings, modestly priced.
To use for napoleonic and ww2 wargaming.

What would you recommend?

Thank you
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
Do you intend to play Skirmish level games were a match between figures and buildings size can be important visually or are you going to play larger battles where the area of ground taken up by the buildings matters more? In the latter case I’d recommend going for buildings at least 1 scale size smaller than the figures. You can also often get away with 20mm buildings with 28mm figures in skirmish games too, they are cheaper and take up less room to store and on the tabletop.

Having said that, there are any number of suppliers of buildings in 28mm. I’d recommend you take a look at Sarissa Precision, Warbases, Charlie Foxtrot for MDF and Renedra in plastic to name a few.

Others I have used include Red Vectors walls, available through Minibits, and TT Combat. One of my preferred suppliers on the basis of price is Hoka Hey.

One thing I would say is that it depends what you are going to do with the kit. I like to purchase a basic shell, then tart it up myself, and I don't care about interiors, so I am happy to go with very basic kits, like the Mango Terrain garage available on ebay for £7.50 which then gets a makeover:

If you want something that looks a bit better 'out of the box' then you will pay quite a bit more.

I got a reasonable farmhouse set on ebay for 20 quid for a couple of barns, and the house, and a walled compound, tarted it up with some polyfilla. Ideally will do tiling on the roof, but not got round to it yet. As others have said, it is the tarting that makes the thing

Red vectors stuff is great.
Got the start of a 28mm Stalingrad table from Mick.

Red Vectors (via Pendraken) or Warbases (when they reopen) are great value, entrance-level prices, especially if you want a lot of buildings.

Can’t beat Charlie Foxtrot though, and Sarissa are very nice.

Warbases, Blotz, TTCombat and Charlie Foxtrot are my go-to suppliers. Sarissa also have some of the more unusual bits.
