Samurai Wooden Walls available NOW!!

2019-01-24 by David

Well, those painted up very easily, so we're a little ahead of schedule and you lucky people get TWO releases in one week! - the feudal Japanese era Samurai Wooden Walls Set is now available for download!

 

  Samurai Wooden Walls  





This set of walls contains 12cm straight sections, two versions of the gateway, and corner sections, all with optional bases.





This is a basic 8 section arrangement, with both gateway versions. There is a sloped roof version and a solid beam version. Both are commonly found in rural and town settings throughout Japan, even until recent times.





As you can see, the fences reach to about head-height on 28mm models, providing plenty of cover for that sneaky ninja!





Gates can be hinged using a small piece of rod or even spare filament, and can be opened and closed during games. The locking bar on the back holds them firmly closed.





Two versions of each fence are included, the plain wooden version shown above .....



..... and also a version with nail heads sculpted on. The better class of Japanese fencemaker might have used wooden pegs instead of nails.





Each section comes with an optional textured base.





As you can see from this photo, you don't actually need the bases attached, if you add 5mm magnets in the holes at each end - they will hold together nicely on your tabletop.



 

Here's an alternative arrangement, just to show the versatility of the set.

 

Fast to print and fast to paint, I painted up these walls using the following recipe:

 

  • Light brown undercoat (GW's Khemri Brown)
  • Brown wash (light wash of Agrax Earthshade)
  • Drybrush light brown (Khemri Brown)
  • Drybrush light beige (Rakarth Flesh)
  • Drybrush the bottom 5mm with light grey (Astronomican Grey) to age the wood
  • Wash some of the bottom 5mm with green wash (Biel-Tan Green) to simulate mold
 
That gave an old, weathered appearance to my walls, because wood rots fast in this climate!
