The Middle East and North Africa have been the backdrop for many conflicts through the centuries, making them a popular setting for miniature wargames. Whether you are fielding your Parthians against invading Roman legions, Crusaders against Saladin’s Saracens, recreating Lawrence’s exploits in Arabia, or trying to halt Rommel at El Alamein, this book will help you set the scene for your games.

Expert terrain modeller Tony Harwood takes the reader through a range of projects step by step, from selection of materials to the finished items. Each stage is illustrated with colour photographs. The projects have been selected to provide a useful range of features but also to introduce materials and techniques the reader can then apply to further buildings and terrain pieces. Included are a range of traditional mud-brick dwellings/shops, mosque, well, palm trees, well, rocky outcrop, Bedouin tent, El Alamein railway station, Sudanese huts, colonial river gunboat. They are easily adaptable to different scales. Suited to novice and experienced modellers alike.

Each build is well described and every step illustrated with photos of the builds in progress. All have a listing of the resources used in each build, some excellent examples of scratch building. These are not only cheaper than buying fully finished buildings but it will give more originality to your collection and of course, the fun of making your own. Another excellent book for wargamers and modellers.

Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland

Having ‘got into’ 28mm figure painting this book is part of a natural expansion into terrain and buildings to accommodate the eclectic troops accumulating on display and waiting for a campaign! This very useful book explains techniques to create buildings common in North Africa and the Middle East and shows how simple (sic) it is to create the necessary stock from readily available materials. Of course, the constructions are finished with exceptional painting and this book is a very welcome addition.

Wargames Terrain and Buildings is a series of books aimed at giving wargamers the skills, techniques and guidance they need to create their own stunning and practical model buildings. In this volume, master modeller Tony Hardwood shares his years of experience and presents the reader with a wide range of projects…
