The Cantina wonít gave an accessible interior. Iím now basing on 25s (it started with the Peninsular War Project, so I blame Nick) rather than 20s, which to my mind requires a bigger internal footprint whereas I prefer a smaller external footprint on the tabletop. What I might do at some later stage is make a separate internal model for use alongside the main table, not for every building but for the key ones. Maybe.  :D
Ah I see :) perfectly understandable :)
But I bet you will end up making a separate internal model at some stage,I was fortunate enough to participate in one of Ramirez No Name's Ffol games at this year's Blam (thanks Harvey :)) and came away feeling that being able to move minis in a buildings interior enhanced the gaming experience positively.The rules are good fun and I'm sure you'll enjoy them regardless.And I say this despite my characters in the game at various times being back shot and one of them kicked to death, whilst down , by the gentlemany Captain Blood ! :)

Haha. Itís via Dr Deíath (from his experience at BLAM) that I found FFOL, so more credit to Ramirez! 8)

 ;) :D

Anyways, have made some more progress with the buildings. The scenario requires 3: a cantina, a corral and a privy.

The cantina is based on the left hand building in the opening shots of A Fistful of Dollars - the front and rear walls have a slope though itís not obvious in the photo

The fence line is very effective, as is the shelter. I could see the shelter working well for market stalls too.

Ta  :D

I imagine the scenario will play out much like in Young Guns, when IIRC Charlie Sheen is nearly caught in the privy. Iíd post a clip from YouTube but I canít find one.

Thanks. The oven is just layers of 5mm foamboard, circles decreasing in size, then shaved into a dome: itíll be tidied up and smoothed over with filler.
