wargame scenography¡

I think it´s time to begin with the scenography,

I had choosen to star with buildings for this period. There isn’t  a lot of constructions in 1/72 scale and less for this period (there ais a reference of the” Pegasus brand, 1/72 Russian Farm houses” suitable for  a rural scenery, but not for a city. And other problem is that this kind of constructions in 1/72 are big and for a wargame that is not a skirmish game,- in which the building have a very important function in the fighting – I think is much better to use little ones, for space reasons in the scenary.
Creo que es hora de empezar con la escenografía,
Yo he elegido comenzar con edificios para este periodo. No hay muchos elementos en la escala 1/72 y menos para este periodo (hay una referencia de la marca Pegasus, "1/72 Russian Farm Houses" adecuadas para un escenario rural, pero no para una ciudad. Y otro problema es que este tipo de construcciones en 1/72 son muy grandes para un juego que no sea escaramuza, - donde las construcciones juegan un papel muy importante en la lucha-, creo que es mucho mejor utilizarlas más pequeñas por razones de espacio en el escenario.

I bought two references in HO scale (1/87) ,  I think the difference in scale is not a problem, even if we put them beside the figures in 1/72. Both of them are from the brand Faller,very correct, but not cheap¡ I hadn´t use the small pieces than can clash with with the 1/72 scenary overall view.

Compré dos referencias en escala HO (1/87), creo que la diferencia en escala no es un gran problema, incluso si los ponemos junto a las figuras en 1/72. Ambas construcciones son de la marca Faller, muy correctas aunque nada baratas¡. No he usado las pequeñas partes que pueden desentonar con la visión general de 1/72 del escenario.

FALLER 130240, Village church, I think valid for many sceneries
FALLER 130240 Village church, creo que válido para muchos escenarios..

FALLER 130387, Small black forest house. (freeman´s farm battle..)
FALLER 130387, Small black forest house (Para la batalla de la granja de Freeman...)
I don´t know if there is a lot of more references in this scale for this periods...i have to look for¡
No se si hay muchas más referencias en esta escala para este periodo, tengo que buscar...
