The village so far

Here are some pictures of the village so far. I have included all finished buildings plus one that is nearing completion. I need to build one more major structure and then all the accessories - fountain, walls, dead tree, cemetery etc.







More to come!

And another building completed

Hi all,
Here is my latest building for my Magnificent Seven game. There are two more major structures, the cemetery, some odd shaped storage structures, the fountain, dead tree and many fences. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.





 I will add details to the interior as time permits.
Take care,
Greg

Magnificent Seven update

Well friends here is the next installment of my Magnificent Seven project.
Today I am adding two buildings and a gateway in and out of an alley.

As always please feel free to comment.

This is a shot of the back of the building to the left of the arched building.

 Inside of the same building.
 Front of the above building.
 Front and right side of the above building with the roof on.

 Above and below are the two new buildings without their roofs. Also the alley at the end of their block.

 Below is the north side of the village. It is missing just one more building at the far left.
 After the last building for the north side of the village there will be three left to build plus storage structures and walls.
Take care and thanks for looking.

Magnificent Seven building #3

Have finally completed the third building for the Magnificent Seven game I am putting together. Hoping to have it all complete and ready to run for Little Wars 2019 and Adepticon 2019.
This building took longer than expected and I am not quite pleased with it. The tiled roof is too tall and I might decide to rework it later if I have time. There are 6 more buildings to complete plus  number of walls, fences, storage structures and the cemetery. So here is #3.





Please let me know what you think.
Good gaming - Greg

Face to face with Gaming legends.

Greetings to my gentile readers. It is with much excitement that I report on my weekend at Little Wars 2018. The real purpose of my attendance was to assist the wife of one of our fallen but never forgotten comrades Mike Adams. As reported previously in this blog Mike passed much too early in this life. We (Mary Adams, Wendell, My wife Helen and myself) were engaged in selling Mike's massive collection of figures many that have been seen in reports of ancient games on these humble pages.
We did homage to Mike in the selling of many of his figures to other gamers who will keep them in the fight for many years to come. But for me the greatest pleasure was derived from meeting many of the 'Greats' in war gaming!
I met and spoke with the following heroes. Note that these are not listed in any particular order.
Howard Whitehouse
Todd Fisher
Herb Gunt
Kevin Cabai
Jim Roots
John Butler
Tony Adams
Erik Merchant
And of course many others that my feeble mind can not bring to the surface at this minute but that I will remember some night in the middle of my sleep!
What a wonderful weekend I had.
Many, many thanks to all of the people who purchased Mike's figures and books. May those colorful and brave warriors bring you glory and victory in your games!
Thanks again,
Greg

Magnificent Seven bulding #2

I have finished the second building for the Magnificent Seven game I am putting together. This one is the arched building. I am not putting in the long and elaborate play by play on how I built this building as it is a straight forward build.









Next building up will be the Cantina. As an aside I am building these to look very much like the buildings In the movie but will also do double duty in other western games and maybe even some Colonial actions.
As always comments and questions are welcome.
Good gaming,
Greg
