However this afternoon I decided to expand my terrain collection just a little. I'd ventured onto The Junior General looking for some top-down figures for a project I'm mulling over at the moment, and ended up in their terrain and accessories section. Before I knew it I'd downloaded a rather nice medieval house and set about resizing it for different figure scales.
Printed straight off it is pretty much true 15mm. But buildings that are the same scale as the figure often don't look right, unless you're doing skirmish games, so I reduced the size of the image and printed it off again, creating a smaller house that looks better with 15mm HOTT elements.
Here you can see some Peter Pig Orcs marching past a village made up of both sizes of medieval house, plus a small stone house which also plopped onto my hard-drive:
|Amazingly they didn't stop and burn the place to the ground.|
Some more work on scaling and I did a version which I'd be happy to use with 25mm figures for 'Song of Blades and Heroes'. It's still slightly under true 25mm scale but will do the job. Here we can see some of the skeletons from last night's game wondering where the Lego's gone:
Quite fun to make, and quick as well. I think it's safe to say my next 15mm HOTT game will be featuring a built-up area.
