Well of Joseph 28mm scale North African terrain



The Well of Joseph 28mm scale North African terrain is an simple terrain piece designed for use as a focal point for your tables or to just add character and definition.  The layered MDF rings allow for quick and easy painting, and added highlights with gloss or water effects will tie it together exceptionally. Based on first hand reference pictures taken in Egypt and artwork through out history. This piece has been designed to try to bring as much accuracy as possible to your historical game table.

A short history of wells and plumbing in Egypt



The laser etched detail is such that light gradients of thinned paint over primed surfaces are almost all that is needed to bring this terrain kit to life. Going the extra mile with water effects or gloss paints in the interior of the well will add additional depth, creating contrast to a normally “dry” portion of the world.

Wells were historically the lifeblood of early civilizations, key to the growth of a culture and critically important in dryer climates. Your miniatures battling over control of a critical resource makes it an excellent objective point.


The base itself measures about 6in x 6in with a max height of 5/8ths of an inch at the water feature itself.
