Ruined farmhouse and the Castillo de San Felipe in Ferol

   After all these scratch-built terrain pieces, here is a plastic kit for a change! The ruined farmhouse of Warlord Games is a very nice model and can be constructed in a variety of ways. Below you can see how I built it.


   I put both buildings on MDF bases and used balsa wood for the floors and plaster, little rocks and sand for the ground.

   Then I painted grey the stone walls, dark sand the walls and cork brown the woods.











   To continue our trip lets see some photos of the "Castelo de San Felipe" outside the town of Ferol. They say that there was a huge chain linking this castillo to the"Castillo de San Martín" on the opposite side of the river, which blocked the entrance of an enemy fleet, usually the British one.

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!
