Market Day

One of the scenarios in the Operation Enduring Freedom book for FoF takes place in and around an Afghan market. I spent the weekend in a cabin in the woods, and after hiking all day I was able to get in some hobby time building these guys. They are all scaled for my 15mm figures and made of styrene. I didn't build these to a plan, I just improvised with each one.

I built them for FoF, but, being Afghan stalls, they should suit for anything from Dark Ages forward. Which is convenient, what with my having just finished a bunch of Dark Ages figures.

These are all works in progress. Obviously they still need paint, but I'm going to load them up with wares for sale as well.

The whole set:

A produce stall and a bin:

Multiple bins:

Some rugs on the ground, with a tent to give some cover:

A rug merchant's stall (rugs still to come):

Not sure what's going to go here, but there will be wares hanging on that backboard, with more in the bins and on the table:

This one was a brainstorm: a barbecue stall! I'm going to add some gratings on top, and maybe some meat grilling:

A shelf, some carpets, and a table:


Three produce stalls:

I have just finished some 15mm Picts for Saga and, eventually, Dux Britanniarum (I have both rules, just not enough time to play them all!). This is enough for a 6-point game of Saga, and more than enough for a starting force for Dux. I also have 8 horsemen and a mounted version of my leader that haven't been painted yet, but they can wait.

These figures are from Splintered Light and, in my opinion, super nice. The poses look good and the casting is as clean as any I've seen. They were a pleasure to work on.

On with the Pictpics!

12 Levy Javelineers:

24 Warriors with spears:

8 Hearthguard armed with misc stabby things (but they all count as spears in Saga):

And my mighty warlord:
