WSince the last WiP report much has been completed.
First of the blocks is a battalion of Russian line jägers – there is one more battalion of these to go. I have struggled a bit with these and they certainly are not my best work.
Third is the store house for the East African Railway Station set. This was in danger of being quite a bland piece, so I created some interest by providing lots of different textures.
Here is the completed set.
Fourth and final is a group of East African bush/jungle pieces. These have been building up over the last month or so. These 15 pieces were made from less than a single “sheet” of the plastic foliage. I have another two sheets to go, so I hope that when completed, over the next few months, I will have close to 80 pieces, or about 6 linear meters. The idea is that these irregularly sized and shaped pieces can be grouped in any number of combinations to create a maze of bush or jungle. By leaving gaps between the pieces tracks and paths can be represented.
On the table at the moment is:
• The next batch of Russian jagers – the final battalion.
• More bush/jungle pieces
• The first of the next batch of East African Buildings – one of two plantation houses.
