From Paul OG: Stone Bridge and Mosque (20 points)

For the second year in a row I have set aside the figures carefully prepped before the challenge in order to follow (willingly, it must be said) Alan into another project of opportunity :-) So just a few small terrain offerings from me this week in the interim while I build a prep the new models.

First up is this 28mm Stone Bridge by Warlord. A nice plastic model with lots of lovely detail and useful for pretty much any period.

Secondly, a 15mm desert building. Found it in my spares box, manufacturer unknown. Offered here as a hint of the project to come...

Together these models fill most of a "terrain cube" (the AHPC patent pending unit of measurement) so I propose 20 points.


Great work, Paul!  It is no mean feat creating a great entry like your 'BFG' themed entry, and still managing a fine submission to the Challenge on a Monday such as these lovely terrain models.  Well done, Sir!  

There's nothing quite like a fine piece of terrain to bring any battlefield to life, and these both fit the bill perfectly.  I am very sure that bridge will see endless pairs of dusty wargaming boots tramp over it for many happy wargaming years to come.  I really like the way you've picked out the stonework with a fine, light dry-brush.  The small grass shoots poking above the stonework are a great touch as well.

And, as for the Mosque, it's perfect.  From Casablanca to Kabul, that's going to fit in anywhere in a hundred wargaming scenarios.

Top work, Sir, and a worthy 20 points to add to your total!


  1. Well done! I like the bridge in particular.

  2. Both are good indeed but I must say that the bridge is a beauty

  3. Nice looking terrain bits. I can see everyone from Saxon Fyrd to panzergrenadiers marching over the bridge and . the mosque covers about 15 centuries of history!

  4. Well that's just brilliant! I want a bridge now.

  5. Nice Mosque, love the bridge!
    Best Iain

  6. That bridge is rather nice! Is Dux leading you astray again?

    1. Yes, but in a mutual kind of way I suppose...

  7. Lovely work Paul - that bridge is a corker!

  8. That is an excellent assortment of terrain, Paul, I especially like that bridge!

  9. That's one of the best looking bridges I've seen in a while. Lots of cool detail and a really authentic feel to it.

    Hint of a project... colonial Sudan perhaps? :-)
