I have been wanting a windmill to sit on

my terrain boards for ages and fed up with the

lack of ready made terrain to do the job I

decided to have a go at building one myself.

So here is the plan. First,I cut off a small

length of black plastic drainpipe tube. After much

thinking I decided to achieve the stone effect with

DAS modelling clay as it gave me the ability to get

exactly what I was after. Its simply moulded around

the drainpipe and I used a small knife to mark out

the stone relief, windows and door.

Next up I need to create a roof, build some door and

window frames plus add lots of paint. I have found a

windmill sail from a bargain bucket which can be adapted

to the correct type. This should help speed things up.

Below is the DAS modelling clay after sculpting.

  1. That’s really cool, currently I am building myself a French manor house for my bolt action games so its nice to see how other people are going about making terrain for ideas.
