Miniatures in 54mm scale are the origin of modern war
gaming, and they have come back strongly over the last few years with an ever
growing selection of top quality and very affordable figures from many
manufacturers for an ever widening range of subjects. But the critical
accessories that have not kept pace are proper period buildings, and what is
available is commonly outrageously expensive, heavy, and fragile. But once
again, TVAG rides to the rescue with our latest offering of card stock designs, Tudor
These authentic Tudor architectural designs are sold as PDF
files for self-printing and assembly. As with all other TVAG building
ranges, they are designed for quick and easy assembly using only white glue,
3/16" foam core or 5mm MDF, and simple tools. When so made, the
models are sturdy and can last for years of gaming use, but still easily carried
to games and conventions, if desired.
Buildings can be made as shown with windows and doors in
place, or these can be cut out, and with removable roofs and
platforms/ledges installed within, interior access can be arranged.
The models are all based on actual surviving examples,
representing designs correct for all manner of games and dioramas with figures and subjects ranging from
Elizabethan to English Civil War, and other domestic conflicts, to the wider
Continental actions including Seven Years War, Napoleonic battles, and straight
through to the World Wars. As common housing designs all over Britain,
Holland, Belgium, and Germany, Tudor Towne models will look as
realistic with everything from Pikemen to Panzers beside them!
All items are delivered postage free via E-mail, ready for
printing on matte white, heavy card stock (110# recommended). The wide use
of photographic textures means no painting is required,
and the finished products will look breathtakingly real next to your own painted miniatures of all types.
More items are planned, but there are enough models and
accessories now in Tudor Towne to fully populate your table top--or yard
games!--making your games more visually exciting than ever!
