So, fences, one of the trademark features of ACW battles.
They came in various guises , straight bar fences, (like the ones illustrated in the first photograph, snake fences (zig-zag fences) and 'X' fence posts with cross-pieces laid on and some stonework or mounds underneath.
I have all three types, a few commercial ones, as above, which proved costly, but mostly home-made scratch-builds.
|Homemade, snake fence|
|You need a lot of fencing for the ACW|
|In both 6" and 12" lengths (these are all about 12" lengths)|
|That's more than 30 foot of fencing !|
|Front and back of two barricades from one mold|
|Two more (as above) from a second mold.|
|Group shot, all these can protect a single regiment they're about 5" long|
|I also found some tents...|
|...in two varieties|
|I have a lot of tents !|
|Including a paper one for some strange reason (?)|
In addition to fences and tents, I found these two gun emplacements and haven't a clue why they were built, let alone why they were never finished !
|These are big too|
|Close up showing figure for scale, each could easily hold a regiment|
|Roman bits and pieces|
Finally below is a picture of the drawer that all the buildings etc, from this post and the previous two were stored in.
