Re: 28mm MDF Buildings for Normandy

I got my 15mm banque generale from mango. It's okay, but Kristoff Designs does awesome prepainted.

Re: Javis hedges

I can photo a 28mm next to the tall and shirt if you like for scale?

Re: Javis hedges

They'd be pretty short hedges for 28mm. They're maybe 20mm by eyeball on my 15mm guy which means by the time you'd allowed for scale creep and base thickness they'd be a low ornamental hedge in 28mm. Which given how neatly trimmed they are is plausible!

Re: Javis hedges

I am less convinced by the "wall", but this gives an idea of scale for the larger ones. https://scontent-frx5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/105968001_3288097084573975_8178899474970880879_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_sid=0be424&_nc_ohc=e7iGzdLvdUMAX_SOJ-r&_nc_ht=scontent-frx5-1.xx&oh=5d10329994586efd79d01c529fa84...

Re: Javis hedges

Tried roughing them up a bit, and inserting some 10mm trees (which will need something doing about colour to more closely match the hedge). Photo from eye level for a 15mm (or thereabouts) https://scontent-frx5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/105296019_3288047391245611_6764129103782316497_n.jpg?_nc_cat=107&...

Re: Javis hedges

That's a 15mm miniature next to them. The standard is a bit low but the XL looks right. The gorilla glue bulks up so you can lift the base a bit too

Re: Javis hedges

As nobody knew, I thought I'd give them a punt. They come in normal size (OO scale) at less than £2 for 4', and extra large at just over 2 quid for 4'. Sadly the friendly local game shop only had the wall in the XL size, but I felt at those prices it was worth a punt. A bit of cardboard from the wif...

Javis hedges

Anyone got any experience with the Javis OO large hedges that come in an absurdly cheap 4' strip for using with 15mm miniatures?

It lists them as 14.2mm high, 6mm thick, 4' long for about £3.50

Re: 28mm mdf buildings

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
