|Battlefield Accessories Rough Stone Walls|
fresh out of the pack.
Who doesn't have at least a few stone walls in their scenery collection? Not me, obviously. In the past I've made them out of foam, wood with cardboard brickwork details and my last attempt was to make them out of actual pebbles. This last effort I regard as a success and certainly my ultimate solution IF you have an unlimited amount of time and next to no budget. Then I ran into Mike Parker, owner operator of Battlefield Accessories (see logo below) at the Canberra wargames convention (Cancon) in Australia this year.
Mike and I got to talking about how he made his 15mm stone walls - sold as BA03: Rough Stone Walls Pack. It turns out he made his exactly the same way I made mine except he had the sense and commercial purpose to build just two 90 mm sections, cast them and reproduce them commercially in resin. Normally retailing for $12.50 Australian, I picked the pack up for $11.00 as a Show Special price (thanks for coming) which has 7 plain wall sections and one with a wooden gate.
