A day of torrential rain here in the Duchy. Spent part of it finishing off my Spanish Catalan mountain troops and seeing what tabletop scenery sets them off well. I also spent some time looking for images to inspire this brigade level project ( using The Portable Napoleonic Wargame with syw amendments) as I am a great believer in the power of images to conjure up time and place. Did some work with foam board and packaging to model a mountain fort in conjunction with this old railway scenic folly/ castle. Hopefully finish it over the coming days.Anyway a few photos-
This is an interesting project.ReplyDelete
I do hope that it will interest others too and am glad you find it thus.Delete
Great looking ruined castle and your foam walls are very neat.ReplyDelete
It is a fun castle bought second hand. The foam was packaging. I have decided to add foam board and cardboard to it.Delete
An inspiring picture - quite piratical or brigandish - and a useful ruined castle folly.ReplyDelete
Did the figures come with cape attached or did you have to model this?
I can't gauge their size. What scale and make are they?
The figures came as you see them, complete with slung coat, hair nets and cross gartered legs. They are London Warroom from the US A and part of their fascinating Spanish range. They are mountain soldiers.They are 28mm figures. One or two are Front Rank awi militia as I had them lying around.Delete
Looks fun, I agree about the visuals, and a nice 'off the beaten track' setting.. Interested to see how you get on with Portable Napoleonic/SYW too!ReplyDelete
Thanks. Wee project with ratings for commanders and different troop qualities. Although using the brigade level rules I envisage them as companies rather than regiments. Well that is how I see them and it won’t change the rules really.Delete
Good start to the project, looking forward to seeing the finished scenery. Cheers GregReplyDelete
