54mm Tudor Towne


54mm Building Designs for 16th-19th Century Miniature War Games in Britain & Northwest Europe

 Miniatures in 54mm scale are the origin of modern war gaming, and they have come back strongly over the last few years with an ever growing selection of top quality and very affordable figures from many manufacturers for an ever widening range of subjects.  But the critical accessories that have not kept pace are proper period buildings, and what is available is commonly outrageously expensive, heavy, and fragile.  But once again, TVAG rides to the rescue with our latest offering of card stock designs, Tudor Towne.

These authentic Tudor architectural designs are sold as PDF files for self-printing and assembly.  As with all other TVAG building ranges, they are designed for quick and easy assembly using only white glue, 3/16" foam core or 5mm MDF, and simple tools.  When so made, the models are sturdy and can last for years of gaming use, but still easily carried to games and conventions, if desired.

Buildings can be made as shown with windows and doors in place, or these can be cut out, and  with removable roofs and  platforms/ledges installed within, interior access can be arranged.

The models are all based on actual surviving examples, representing designs correct for all manner of games and dioramas with figures and subjects ranging from Elizabethan to English Civil War, and other domestic conflicts, to the wider Continental actions including Seven Years War, Napoleonic battles, and straight through to the World Wars.  As common housing designs all over Britain, Holland, Belgium, and Germany, Tudor Towne models will look as realistic with everything from Pikemen to Panzers beside them!

All items are delivered postage free via E-mail, ready for printing on matte white, heavy card stock (110# recommended).  The wide use of photographic textures means no painting is required, and the finished products will look breathtakingly real next to your own painted miniatures of all types.

More items are planned, but there are enough models and accessories now in Tudor Towne to fully populate your table top--or yard games!--making your games more visually exciting than ever!

Nota Bene: Credit to Gentleman War Gamer and Modeler, Glen Allison, for his help in perfecting assemblies and providing the photos of his work.  (Miniature figures shown are from his personal collection)
