Amazing look! It is a shame that there are not many rules dedicated to this scale.

I don't think it matters. My bases are 50mm, so they either become single elements in most rules or double elements. I'm currently playing Shattered Lances with the same move distances as 15mm.

I've added another town base, and also done some city walls (from the castle components range by Leven Miniatures). The walls are pretty easy to do, the town bases certainly aren't.... So this may take a while to get anywhere near something that actually looks like a town. I may gradually do some siege stuff, and some more appropriate troop bases for going on the walls etc. There's some siege rules in the 'Soldiers of Gaahd' rules which look worth a try.

The civilians are mostly Baccus civilian types from other ranges with some conversion done. This is mostly just a case of applying some Vallejo plastic putty with an old brush. Along with some creative painting it's pretty easy to get them looking suitably Middle-Eastern.

Another bit added to the town. Whole thing about 23cm square. Think I might take a break from the buildings and paint some figures that can actually fight...

Added some more town wall sections as they're pretty easy to do. Leven miniatures castle components.

Finished just about enough Franks for a game of Shattered Lances. This was a relatively cagey affair, until multiple Frankish charges managed to break the Seljuks.
