Gezira Fountain 28mm scale North African terrain

$10.00

Description

The Gezira Fountain 28mm scale North African terrain is an ornate terrain piece designed for use as a focal point for your tables boulevards. Based on first hand reference pictures taken in Egypt. This center piece has been designed to try to bring as much accuracy as possible to your historical game table. Despite being very detailed this fountain is designed with strength in mind, and the center feature is optional. Fountains in this portion of the world were meant to be places of peace and reflection, but something tells us that the tranquil atmosphere will be quickly broken by the sounds of imaginary gunfire during a heated miniature battle.

 

 

The laser etched detail is such that light gradients of thinned paint over primed surfaces are almost all that is needed to bring this terrain kit to life. Additionally using 2 or more gloss colors on the interior of the fountains base will add additional depth, with exceptional contrasting effects to a normally “dry” portion of the world. The ornate inlay when painted, and highlighted with gloss effects, reflects a Middle Eastern mosaic style fountain, surrounded by an intricate tile base commonly found in that region.

 

The base itself measures about 6in x 6in with a max height of 5/8ths of an inch at the water feature itself.

All international orders will be emailed a quote for exact shipping cost that will be added to our standard shipping charge

This kit is made in the USA by Ironheart Artisans from laser cut 2.5mm MDF and is a multi-part kit that will require assembly. The parts come completely cut and are NOT attached to a sheet that need to be punched out.

The painted example pictured is a prototype with certain differences from the model being sold. The unpainted kit shown is exactly what is included and how it is cut, we have made many improvements since the prototype.

Miniatures shown for scale only and painted by Robert Chandler, heads by Brigade Games and bodies from Perry Miniatures.

Full table shots are for scale reference only and to give you a idea of what is possible with our north african terrain range.
