Since the 1970's I've been a big fan of the 1970's action movie, 'The Wild Geese' so as a model maker and gamer it seemed only natural to put together a set of gaming terrain for playing out the key scenarios from the movie. Earlier in the year we spent several days watching the movie in great detail, freeze framing and taking screen shots to come up with a plan for the prison / barrack block.

At this year’s Partizan Wargames show we put on a ‘The Wild Geese’ participation game using prototypes of the buildings. The game was very well received.

We have included lots of photos from the game in the project video and you can click here to take a look at the ‘After Action Report’ for the game.

Since then we have had lots of inquiries about making the building kits available, which we are now doing via this kick starter campaign. All of the kits are constructed from sturdy 3mm MDF for walls and thinner 2mm MDF for roofs, floors, doors and window frames. Construction is very straight forward. Sheets of embossed plastic ‘corrugated metal’ sheeting are supplied with each building to be cut into squares to be glued on to roof sections. All roofs are removable and buildings have interior partitions where applicable. I glued fine sand onto the outside of the buildings before painting with household emulsion.

Of course, The Wild Geese is only one of very many uses for a prison, barracks and airport set. In 'The Walking Dead', Rick and his pals decide that a prison will make a great new home, once they've done a bit of spring cleaning. Click here to take a look at our photo gallery of our prison buildings in a 'The Walking Dead' setting.

The airport could be used for a small airfield pretty much anywhere in the world from the 1930's to the present day, as can the barrack buildings. The barracks and the prison would make a great POW camp.

Risks and challenges

The risks are fairly minimal in this project. We have already designed the buildings, just need to get them into production. We have already run four successful projects on Kick Starter / Indigogo. (28mm Normandy Terrain, Exotic Locations, Terra-Formers, Classic Movie Miniatures).
