New Scenery and buildings for the collection.

Last year I commissioned some new additions to my collection and having received the final package yesterday I have taken some time to do some setups and generally have fun with the collection.

The scenery, boards and buildings were all created by David Marshall of TM Terrain.

This now completes a 10 year long commission to build these walls and immediate surrounding area to represent the 1513 siege of Therouanne and battle of the Spurs. By no means is it the end of my appetite for scenery and buildings, it'll be fun to see where I next go.

On to the terrain.

First up, a long overdue gatehouse for the walls of Therouanne. This is loosely based upon contemporary drawings of the now destroyed walls along with an amalgamation of various French gatehouses that have survived.

These close ups show off some of the detail along with the buildings of the town within.

Next, some pastoral scenes to show off a new watermill, farmhouse and manorial / abbey type building. All based upon French medieval buildings.

Back to war and the dirty business of siegeworks. Here are some photographs to display new gun positions and some more views of the gatehouse.

I'm really looking forward to featuring these new additions in a variety of games.

Currently on the workbench are some more Scots to add to my existing pike block, it's all going o.

All the best
