hello again and more ECW

Firstly, a quick apology for the time it has taken me to post again. I don't know where the time goes.
This year I hope to keep on top of the blog as well as up date my web site and generally keep up to date. I produce alot of work (as you can see if you follow me on Facebook-  www.facebook.com/Tmterrain ) so have got loads of photos of what I have been doing.

Anyway, I put a photo on Facebook on Monday of a large ECW game that I have done the terrain for over a couple of years. It was on display at Nantwich museum over the weekend. I have featured it before here in both its ECW and WW2 guises.
I want to cover it again because it has now grown to 20 feet long with a new extension delivered for this weekend.
Here are the important points followed by lots of photos taken on the day

size of table- 20feet x 6feet
period and scale- 28mm ECW
manor house and water mill- scratch built by me
church and windmill - Grand Manner (painted by me)
town walls- Ian Weekley (painted by me)
other twon buildings- PMC and Grand Manner
Trees- JG Miniatures
Flock- Woodland Scenics and Realistic Model Services
Figures- various manufactures

Hedges- rubberised horse hair, sprayed black and flocked with home made flock- died cork chippings
water- river- painted and glossed, ponds- 2 part resin from Delux Materials
rocks- casts from woodland scenics rock molds

That is it for this one.
Have a look at my Facebook page if you want to keep an eye on what I am making- I try to post every day.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. Seriously- the terrain is breathtakingly good.


  2. That is fantastic. Thanks for posting up the pics I'd'd not seen this one

  3. That is one of the best looking tables / dioramas that I have ever seen. So much inspiration. I'll be back and back.

  4. Wow, that table's insanely good.

  5. That is a beautiful table I love seeing games played in such a manner...fantastic work.

  6. One of my favourite tables of all time. Outstanding!!!!

  7. Hi David,
    Your terrain boards continue to motivate me to keep pushing my terrain aesthetics.
    If I may ask could you point me on what scatter/colours to replicate the hedges?

  8. This is a marvelous diorama, plenty of details and well-thought small surprises. Really great!

  9. blimey - that is something special
