Just various glues (depends on the donor parts), occasionally we have a casualty, but that is easily fixed :D Tumbling Dice do packs of arms with swords, lances, pistols and rifles which have proved highly useful, also various hard plastic kits had multi-part figures in the day.

We use Charles Grant`s "Battle" rules from the 1960s - the ancestor of RF according to Colin :) First set of real rules i discovered way back when i was 12 thmbs2)

And there`s more :D

Clearing the decks with various little bits to break up open spaces on the table.
Figures and truck just for scale

Fish and meat stalls for a market place - a bit big in 20mm, but i added the platforms to make them more like auction platforms :D
These came from Spanish cheap shops 60cents each

Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.
