Harbourside (3) - a quick review

well I started off with this setup ...
I've made some wooden wharf sections, three buildings (crane, warehouse, merchants house) and adapted another building to make it more like a warehouse;  with other buildings and ships I have enough to setup most harbour areas for my 18th century games and story lines (some items may also appear on my other blogs as they are generic enough for a variety of periods).

Some piccies with some figures added with everything together ....


  1. Most atmospheric Allan, I look forward to see it in action...

  2. These are some of the most splendid buildings I have seen in fifty years of war gaming. Magnificent!!

  3. You are a master modeler. I am so impressed by your work.

  4. Ditto all the above... absolutely splendid.

  5. Looks fantastic all laid out like that with the ships and boats and people and all!

  6. Agreed with the preceding comments. I would even venture to say that this is one on the most interesting backdrops you have assembled and shared here. It is is in the realm of diorama or model railway scenery. Wonderful!

    Best Reegards,



    1. I used to do railway modelling so a lot of ''presentation skills'' used for layout design transfer well to the wargames table - positioning of scenery, buildings, vignette figures etc. The scenic backdrops on the table help give a sense of depth.

  7. Beautiful and atmopsheric...Congrats!
