I needed a few more Villages for the Poltava table and bought some of Total Battle Miniature’s houses and scenic tiles (link to their webpage here). I normally make my own tiles but thought I treat myself. I like the concept of a separate Village tile because it makes the village more defined than just placing some houses in a cluster on the battle mat. The tiles are made in a rubbery material and it is not recommended to use spray primers to paint them. These small tiles costs about £4 each and works well with their very extensive range of houses, etc.
I painted the rubber bases with undiluted brown acrylic and then dry brushed them and added some static grass, flock and a few tufts.
I really like these. / Hope that was of some interest.
