Corunna bathtubbed – progress

Since this morning’s post the required spray paints have arrived. Hills have been varnished, then sprayed green and brown and re-varnished. Stream tiles were sprayed green, varnished and then thickly applied with a mix of blues and greys from tester pots using an old kids’ craft painting brush, then revarnished.

The new bits and pieces

With the new hills and streams in place I am almost there. Grid lines need to be drawn on the new tiles, the sea/river section must be painted, a bridge made and trees sought from the Toy Cupboard or the loft (or made from scratch if not found)*.

Most of the terrain is ready

* Trees are made by making small woollen pompoms in the traditional manner, then attaching them to thin dowel rods on a circular MDF base. They are then based in pairs. Two bases (four trees) are impenetrable, one base (two trees) is passable by infantry or light cavalry.

One thought on “Corunna bathtubbed – progress”

  1. Well, it appears that I have given away to a junior wargamer most of my hom- made wool pompom trtees. So I will have to rethink and probably use some normal wargame trees in their place. ☹️
