I'm still waiting for my 6mm Afrika Korp order to arrive but I'm trying not to be idle while I wait. So I bought these desert buildings and quickly painted them up ready for action. The larger buildings are two-storey Libyan mud-brick village/town houses. The three smaller ones in front are meant to be Arabic town/village houses, although this type of building can be found almost anywhere in the Arabian peninsular or north Africa. These later buildings had smooth walls but I wanted something that looked similar to the Town houses so I covered the walls with fine sand before painting.

These were base coated with Humbrol Desert Yellow then drybrushed with Vallejo Ivory and then given a couple of layers of diluted wash of GW Devlan Mud to tone the highlights down a bit.
