Under Wittenberg (1) down the steps and ...

After the discovery of a secret door in the crypt of St Barnabas,  a group from the Royal Society were sent to investigate. They arrived at the church in the middle of the afternoon ...

The door was opened quite easily, lamps were lit and they ventured down some steps into the gloom....
They moved along a short passageway, it was a bit damp with the odd rat running around...
Shortly they arrived in a small chamber, with a tomb at its centre. They studied the inscription, it was the long lost tomb of the medieval king Theoderic III.
One of the royal society calculated that they were directly under the preaching cross in the square in front of the church about 30 ft or more down. There were two passageways leading off the tomb chamber, which appeared to be dead ends. They decided to investigate further the next day, a guard would be put in the church crypt by the doorway, there were stories about the treasure of Theoderic - they did not want anything disturbed.

Down town Wittenberg ....

 I recently invested in a 3'x3' cobblestone game mat from Deep Cut Studios. I had long wanted to do a sort of down town Wittenberg setup so I started putting down buildings and added in my civilian figures as well..


After a bit of fiddling about and using up all my suitable buildings I managed to get a layout I liked on the mat....

A couple of closer in views ...



I am planning to have a small solo game, where the the tunnels under Wittenberg are investigated - town setup on one side of the table and the other is going to be underground entrance and passageway sections on a black surface...

A large church facade...

I had recent post on Duchy of Tragardland about seasonal scenery in mind when I was out shopping at a local emporium and wandered over to the Xmas section to see what they had in the way of usable items - most were the usual Xmassy stuff and not much use. I browsed the Lemax accessories and then the buildings - one item stood out a large church facade with towers.  I have an interest with church architecture and it was one of those 'thats mine' moments.....

Superb as a backdrop 'low-relief' items and goes right with my 28mm figs (and would be OK with my 40mm figs too 😀).  Was it a good match with my large church made with Pegasus gothic building kits (PKPG4923, PKPG4924, PKPG4925).....
Oh yes, just looks like a made-to-measure fancy west end facade...
a bit of work to do to make the front fit better- it needs a suitable back and some padding pieces to make a better join to the large church. A nice little modelling project..
