Terrain elements such as apartments, houses and offices, retail stores and other commercial or industrial buildings can be costructed in a number of ways. One approach is to use vacuum-formed plasticard and for more information, please see the Vacuum-Forming page at www.miniatureMOJO.co.uk.
This page follows the assembly of a winter board that depicts either side of an urban road, comprising 30cm sq tiles, with a planned overall board size of 60cm-180cm by 60cm. To facilitate gameplay, the insides of the buildings are accessible from the rear.
The buildings have an inner core of 5mm foam board panels, which are fronted with 0.5mm plasticard facades that have been vacuum-formed with the relevant details and textures. The ground tiles are 6mm mdf cut true square by the DIY store, 600 grit wet'n'dry paper for the road surface, 3mm foam board for the raised pavement/garden areas, and then vacuum-formed plasticard for the pavement flagstone texture. Other materials used in the construction include craft sticks for planking and oven-baked FIMO for loose rubble.
The first three tiles had single houses on two and a pair of attached houses on one.
The tiles can be laid out in a number of configurations
