As promised a closer look at the other end of

the village which is still in progress especially the

water course.

The 1st picture is of the Loic Neveu Manor house and I

was considering changing the picture to black and white

to make it more brooding but the swastika, the colour of

the building and the sunlight makes it creepy enough.

Just click on a picture to enlarge.

Warning, lots of large pictures. Just click on

a picture to enlarge.

Just wanted to show you how I have been getting

on with my continuing Normandy boards. Still a long way

to go but all 3 boards are coming along nicely. As you

can see from the pictures the 3 additional boards

allow me to crawl out of the Normandy bocage and right

into the local village for a bit of street fighting.

The name of the church and village are fictional so

don’t bother looking for it lol

The buildings are all mixed manufacturers and the centre

piece church is a Loic Neveu masterpiece. If you really

need to know who makes any particular building just contact

me for the details.

As mentioned in previous posts I have been using Google Maps

to get inspiration and ideas from,especially the church. Most

French villages have a church surrounded by a circular wall and

often sit right in the middle of the village with a road curving

around the church. There is often a war memorial right next to

the church as well.

A few bits of info on the church. The gates to L`eglise Saint Andre

are scratch built and the stained glass windows are a combination of

free hand painting and see through plastic. The roof is removable

so you can fill the church with soldiers to your hearts content.

All buildings on the boards are removable except the walls which are fixed

in position. Also to help with storage the telegraph poles are fixed to the

board with magnets so easily moved.

Lots more to do especially at the more built up end of the village but

light is shining from the end of the tunnel.

If your wondering that’s a Panzer Lehr Division rolling through 🙂

Couple more buildings finished off. These two are

by Tiger Terrain and will eventually sit in a more

urban location as opposed to the country side they

are presently sitting in. The posters are all pictures

pulled from the net and simply scaled down in size.

Translated it roughly means farmhouse or some

where the farmer would live. I`m sure some French expert

will correct me lol.

Another Noveu Loic bit of terrain all painted up with

a slight Autumnal feel to it.
