As I usually try and post on Tuesday and this is all Hallows Eve I thought I would post something I've been pottering along with for a while.well since Dave's summer of scenery ( which seems a long time ago!) I had a couple of minifigs 25mm Napoleonic figures, a Prussian and I think a French figure. I couldn't see me using them, not least as I don't have a Prussian army for that period, well not yet!
Anyway I thought, why not a war memorial to the war of liberation for my bolt action terrain? I had some statue bases I'd made for Frostgrave so I pinched one of them, stuck down my minifigs chaps and then in the spirit of late 19th century romantic art added slate dressing around them and a figure of Nike the goddess of victory urging them on, alright she's some unknown witch from the late 1970's but everyone is allowed a second chance, right?
So that little ensemble were built and primed before our last Valour and Fortitude game and Des commented on it favourably which resulted in me knocking out the graveyard while my wife went to the theatre, hardboard base, Rendra leftover railings ,from the big house ruin, and their graveyard set, bit of foamboard walls and some corrugated card pinched from my daughters craft/making things box once she grew out of, waste not want not, texture paste as I'd left the ready mixed filler in the house, sand etc and there we have it, somewhere in Prussia or maybe it's celebrating Prussia and Russia shoulder to shoulder liberating Europe from the Corsican Ogre? Or you can take it out and it can be a built up area for Blackpowder? The commisar is in for repairs as his metal flag fell off!
Next up? More bolt action terrain? Napoleonic limbers or Old Guard chasseurs or a Valour and Fortitude AAR or a Pike and Shot AAR? One of those probably!
All the best
