This is a really interesting project I look forwards to seeing more as it develops. What scale miniatures are you going to use?

Peter Dennis' Paperboys, which are around 28mm, give-or-take.

The only way to do 12,000-15,000 Zulus on the cheap!   :D

D-Day has been postponed to some unknown future date. No matter. Construction continues apace...

Wow, great stuff! I love how you are staying with paper products for the terrain as well as the minis.

I'm looking forward to seeing this come to fruition, it's lovely to see someone take on a project like this with paper/card.

You've made a good start and have lent me some inspiration.
If only I had the space, this would be on my to do list.

Keep it up!

Cheers

Ry
