|Reverse View (bit obvious)|
|Officer, Piper and test subject !|
Each two Units have another officer and Sergeant (four units would have yet another officer - probably mounted).
On the right is the CO of these two units (A redoubt figure), a piper (Old Glory) and a figure I used as test piece (Irregular).
|Rear view, for those that like this sort of thing|
|The Moray and Alba Highlanders|
|Rear View, Irregular Minis in the front rank OG in the rear|
|The Cairngorm Highlanders (all Old Glory)|
|Rear view - you can just about make out the splash of yellow in their kilts|
|base of the largest building showing wall positions etc.|
Here's some photographs that have been heavily photoshopped to show pencil marks on the very shiny foamboard surface.
|Central bit - with the fourth attempt at a back wall !|
|The four outer walls for the above (since this photo was taken they have been cut out)|
|The mess that will be four buildings !|
|Newly arrived window (frames really)|
As luck would have it, whilst typing out this blog an Ebay delivery of model 'windows' arrived, which means I'll be concentrating a lot of effort into the large building shown above and if you look closely you may even make out where the windows will go !
In response to a request in last week's comments I'll hopefully be showing a little more detail in how I tackle making foamboard (foamcard ?) structures and maybe some finished models -prior to painting, gungeing etc. The best bit of quick advice I can give is to plan as much as possible and remember walls have thicknesses ! I use a notepad and isometric paper for sketching out ideas and plan a lot before cutting anything !
That's it then for this week, I do hope something has been of interest.
As always thanks for taking the time to visit and your comments, queries, criticisms etc. are truly welcomed and appreciated.
