|Terrain used in a game|
A template was created for the bridge sides to help get consistency. With the woodwork I use a mitre-saw contraption and coping saw.
|Mitre Saw Contraption - most useful for straight lines and correct angle cuts|
|Coping saw - for those tricky bits!|
|All the bits were cut out.|
|Glued with PVA wood glue|
|Painted and pastels used to provide colour variation (much darker in photo than actually is)|
|Varying stone colours are dabbed on|
|Pastels used extensively to get variation and a feeling of texture for the bridge span, then a coat of PVA glue is applied to seal the model.|
|In use on the tabletop.|
For those readers who are wondering what on earth has happened to the ACW and ECW campaigns. They will be completed over the next few weeks and there are two ACW action reports waiting to be written up.
The reason for this Jacobite distraction was to try out a solo mechanism used in the ACW campaign and to see if it translates to the tabletop. In the campaign I use orders and write two sets of orders for the opposing force along with orders for my own force. Once all are written, I then dice to see which set of orders to apply to the opposition force moves. As I am using a One Hour Wargaming approach I am hoping it will not be too onerous to write orders for 6 units per side. More on this if it works out.
