Back of Beyond Terrain Bits [2]

This is the other bit of terrain I've been fiddling with, a laser cut mdf  North African compound that I bought in the Timeline Miniatures sale a while back. This is a really easy kit to assemble but does require a coat of ready mix polyfilla rendering, if you don't want it to look like a cardboard box. I slapped on the filler then sealed it with a wash of dilute PVA wood glue, before undercoating everything with Halfords Ultra Matt Khaki spray.

I also added some sand to the courtyard so that it would blend with the rest of my desert terrain but still need to actually paint the thing.  I really like this building, even without any paintwork or weathering, so will definitely be purchasing some more of the North Africa range, even though they'll be used in Central Asia for the Back of Beyond. If you left off the dome it would also be useable South of the border down Mexico way, so the gunfighters and banditos aren't that out of place in the picture.


  1. That is certainly much improved!

  2. Nothing wrong with that as a kit, nicely done.

  3. Nicely done, indeed. It's a pretty timeless building, and could be used in several parts of the world.
