Colonial house for Singapore for Chain of Command

Post by MLB »

I'm playing a Chain of Command campaign set in Singapore in 20mm and need to represent a house belonging to a rubber plantation owner. I have one of the 20mm Sarissa colonial houses and I've done some work on that to make it suitable for the Far East. You can see how I did those modifications in a longer post on the blog.

For the campaign I wanted to add a base and so I've recycled a base I had made for a house in French village. To add more tropical flavour I planted a couple of palm trees.

The car is die cast and from Oxford. I sprayed it with matt varnish and gave it a dry brush just to make it look less toy like.

I like it! Thanks for sharing! It looks like the left bush is turned over, isn't it?

Fab.
Like the idea of having different bases for terrain so you can use it for different areas of the world.

Indeed. Pull out the palm trees and cover the holes with some
clump foliage and it will be back in Europe in no time 😉

Or alternatively leave the palm trees and refight the initial "Riviera" days of Operation Dragoon ;)

(Lovely work as always!)

Now there’s a thought, all we need is for someone to write a PSC.

Great work.
What did you make your base, garden / compound walls, and wrought iron fence from?

Thanks. The base is cut from MDF and textured with PVA glue and sand. The walls were made from cork floor tiles. The wrought iron fence was part of a set from eBay (model railway scenery - one of the advantages of playing in 20mm).
