A peaceful hamlet in an unnamed valley.
Terrain was a combination of Willy's mat from the Terrain Guy along with the road by an unknown manufacturer and selected pieces from my collection. Recognize the huts? Those were the medieval/dark age huts I scratch built for our future Viking campaign from an earlier post: http://thehistoricalminiaturist.blogspot.com/2011/04/viking-housing-development.html. Carpet tiles were used for the plowed fields along with my scratch built haystacks. The wooden kegs were acquired from the wood working section of my local craft store (i.e. Michael's, Hobby Lobby).
|They have smaller scale barrels that are perfect for 28mm
and very cost effective and easy to paint.
We're talking $4 for a package of 9 wooden barrels.
Wooden fence sections come prepainted from Pegasus Hobbies.
|Objective: Loot the Village!

"Hold your fire, Perkins! If you put a hole in 'em barrels, it'll be your hide!!"
|And across the field, the fire fight from the Frog perspective.
