More Repurposing

Back in December, you may recall I repurposed an escarpment from my old Back of Beyond display terrain(Link).
When I visited the Barrage show I picked up a copy of Battlegroup Torch, I intend to use this to organise my German and US forces until Battlegroup Italy is out.  I have a plan to make some more hill pieces for my Spanish/Italy tables and thought wait a minute these would also be ideal for Tunisia, I would then just need a couple of buildings  and a few palms for Operation Torch games. I remembered that I had made a group of buildings for the Back of Beyond display games, a bit of whitening up and they would pass muster for the more westerly regions. So here we go, I added an ornate window that Dave kindly gave me so I attached and painted that. Just a bit more weathering to do and hey presto!, although I may add a dome to the roof of the building next to the archway.

    1. Thank you George, the window is a fine piece. He does some nice buildings too, almost impossible to get unless you can catch him at a show it appears.
