Looks good.  I wish I could get my daughters to paint and make terrain for me, however, they are more interested in boys then in toy soldiers.
I have a cunning plan... as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University.

Inspirational! I must begin to build foam core buildings! They look so convincing.

Please, what was the texture that you used?

Welcome to the forum, Wolf Girl!

Fantastic work on the buildings!!

How do you and your dad make those perfect arches?

I'd also second getting a rabbit cutter. It's a true lifesaver.

And look out for Greywolf's pack... you really don't want to run them.  :D

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Ah, another fan (or I suppose two>?) of foamcore buildings. They're looking very swell. There needs to be a couple of building-to-building bridges and undie-lines for all the village's (?) old nannies' panties.

On another note: where does every keep getting that specific lot of cacti? They're so fine and simple I could use with a bunch to hide in my foliage bins.

Here you go, Bako.

Imex also makes some for their Alamo series. Mixing the two gives a good variety of sized cactus.

I am really curious about those arches.

Does anyone know how it was done?

Thin cardboard should be ok for the inside of that, it bends fine and since its on the inside of the arch it wouldnt need to be that sturdy. Cutting it in the arch shape can be harder, never worked with foamcore, so I cant give advice on that.

Excellent work so far!  Awesome how you have the family team going in on this project.  My son wanted to help me with my Zombie board and all of a sudden we were adding laser cannons for the Space Marines and a landing pad for his Predator figures to land...Hey itll be one heck of a battle.

this is indeed difficult with thick materials

don't know how it was done here
I usually cut the straight sections with a ruler and try to do it perpendicular to the surface.
from the end of the cut I then follw the bend with a very narrow sharp blade, and again take care for a perpendicular cut.

But maybe Wolfgirl ha s abetter way to do it

I had to give Wolf Girl a few days off, as I can't afford another union strike.

 lol

Great looking city y'all are putting together there!
