28mm Modern Harbour Project

For several months I have been working on a harbour project. My goal is to make a set of terrain tiles and scenery that can be re-arranged to make a wide range of port or harbour settings across history from the medieval / fantasy period right through to the present day and near future.

28mm Modern Harbor

The foundation for the terrain is the terrain / battle boards. These are all constructed from Sally 4th Terra-Former kits, which provide a series of components to assemble a sturdy, light weight MDF frame with embedded rare earth magnets to hold all the tiles firmly together as there is nothing worse than boards that drift apart mid game. There are about 40 different kits, all with different profiles to build rivers, streams, hills, cliffs, caves, sewers and much more. For this project I've used Sea Tiles, Canal / Quayside Tiles and Plain Tiles.

I've also used a lot of 3D printed printed components including the harbor walls and many of the boats. The large motor launch with the black and white stripped hull, the blue hulled fishing boat and the jetty are from Z1 Design Precinct 187 range and the harbor walls, towers and redoubt are from 3D Print Terrain's Pirate range.

The plan is also to be able to represent harbours from different areas around the world. This set up is inspired by trips that I've made to ports in Morrocco. The harbor wall is a typical medieval feature, still standing today. I've used some of the Middle Eastern / North African flat roofed buildings from our Outremer range to represent typical North African dwellings.

The miniatures that I'm using are from Crooked Dice and are part of there 7TV range. I've remounted them onto Sally 4th clear perspex bases so that they can stand on the decks of the boats and the wooden and stone jetties without looking like they are dragging half of there back garden around with them.

This little motor boat carrying Bond and Anya the rescue is a free to download 3D print file that I found on Thingiverse.

The plan is to use the modern North African harbor for skirmish gaming using Pulp Alley, 7TV, Spectre & Combat Patrol.
