Egyptian Ruins - Completed

I had a few hours to spare today so managed to finish off the last pieces for the Egyptian ruins.


These last bits were simple pieces like making the plinth for the columns, the rubble on the floor and the slabs across the top of the pillars. Then a final assembly and a touch up of the painted surfaces.



From my observations of the Egyptian ruins back when we there in 2009 there really ought to be a lot more rubble and blown sand. But this is a wargames building and I want to be able to fit some figures inside it. I am content with the final result.

  2. Very cool scenic - as always Mark! How do you fancy scratch building an armoured train?!

    1. Amazing what you can put together with a bit of foam board, a few corks and some stones eh?

      If you have the plans and the bogies the train is probably pretty straight forward although there are a few already on the market.

    Three units of War of 1812... some camels and a ruin...
    All I’ve done in that time is some highlights... :-)

  7. Great work on these, and your French in Egypt figures will really bring them to life.

    1. Thanks Lawrence. I am looking forward to launching into the French in Egypt when I get home.

  8. Nice looking ruins and of course reality has to give way a little to being playable!

    1. Thanks Iain. There is a bit of laziness on my part too - I started making them when I was waiting for parcels to arrive and now that they have, I needed to clear it from the workspace. I may yet go back and add some of the missing elements...perhaps next time the lead pile flattens.
