The occasional ramblings of a historical wargamer
Really nice terrain, the blockhouse is great,I look forward to hearing more about it's construction.Best Iain
Thanks Iain. I was hooing to have the whole model completed, but I ran out of one of the materials I need to finish it. I hope to complete it early next week.
Excellent, Mark! Your weathering technique is very convincing.
Thanks Jonathan. I spent more time on painting the blockhouse than I thought I woold. SInce the planking is made from balsa my original plan was to simply stain the balsa with an ink wash. But the resilt was too dark so I paint it black then drybrushed a base brown followed by ever lightening shades of lighter brown, until finally a dusting of white. Some black wash created tone to the roof and a few watermarks on the main structure.
Wonderful job, love this realistic and beautiful blockhouse especially...
Thank you Phil. They filled in a bit of time while I waited for more figures to arrive!
Very nice terrain as always Mark but I am concerned that my poor 1812 Brits are maybe going to have tasks amulet your blockhouse!
Conversely, because the game will be set in the Niagara front, it could be the British defending the blockhouse...
Great looking buildings! I’m always amazed by what people make out of balsa wood.
Thanks Stew. It is probably because itvis such an easy material to work with.
Really nice work again. I especially like the detail work on the blockhouse door with regard to the hinges and doorknob. It looks great.
Thanks Lawrence. Hinges etc ar just a bit of green stuff.
