I have a plan. It's something to support my new range (and only new range) for 2018. It's not innovative or clever, just a piece of scenery with a little narrative for the theme. I'm definitely not looking to win anything or even improve on my previous best of fourth place (twice, I think).

Re: Elk101's Ill Advised Build 2018

My current thinking is to build a small rural Japanese  graveyard suitable for use in games of Ronin. The 'ill advised' element will come in the form of a samurai at the entrance to the cemetery and the Supernatural presence that will be visible inside. He would be ill advised to enter.

Edit: I've called it a bochi but I'm not really sure that's the correct term. Please feel free to correct me!

Massively late in starting due to other things, but the general build is underway.

Ooh, I'm a big Ronin player so keen to see where this goes - nothing looks better on a wargames table than Japanese scenery.

Thank you. I've been tempted by a Sengoku skirmish setting for a while so this will be my new range for the year. I'm intending on keeping it at less than 50 figures and perhaps a small village.

Looking good so far, mate.
Nice etching of the foam, much better for your sanity than ikkal bikkal individual bricks, I reckon.

Thanks again. I'm hopeful that I'll maintain it as a low mini count excursion, primarily based on the fact that I think I may look to expand an existing collection this year too.

Dude! Fantastic looking stonework on your base, and glad to see another Japanese themed entry  :)

You may have started slightly late-ish, but you've already more work in it than I have in mine, and it looks good already  8) 8) 8)

Thank you good sir.

A bit more tonight; front and rear shots. I'll probably sand the edge of the base to take the squareness off. I shouldn't have put the clay over the top yet as I've ordered some of those lovely Oshiro Model Terrain grave markers to cover some of the allowed purchases.
