Battle of Ginnis, Perry Towers

If you're a fan of The Sudan and Perry Miniatures and have a minute or two spare I'd go to the link HERE if I were you!

Apologies for the paucity of the post but I'm knee deep in Ikea hell at the mo'.

Indian Mutiny/NWF Rock

Not a particularly very exciting entry at present as I've just completed a rock and thought that it ought to be documented! I know! LOL :>)

This is however significant in that I've been torturing myself a little over whether to present the Indian landscape and soil as rich in iron giving it a reddish appearance or whether to double up my NWF terrain with my Indian Mutiny terrain. I've decided upon the latter as this is going to save a lot of time and effort. It might not be 100% historically accurate for the Mutiny campaigns that I have in mind but it will the terrain pieces will certainly do the job that I'm looking for and I can happily settle for that.

The rock is made out of bark chippings and old Greystuff (that is off and not suitable for sculpting proper. The grey stuff fills all the gaps in the terrain and I sculpted it to match the barks rocky texture by wetting a piece of bark and pressing it into the Greystuff with persistence.

So, without much further ado, I present to you [drum roll......]; a rock!

North West Frontier, Brits with Grit!

Just taken a few snaps of the Renadra Mud Hut and my Artizan 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot.

Constructing the building was a simple process though there were quite a few gaps that needed filling. For some reason I chose to fill them with Milliput, which came away in places due to the tool I was using having to be dipped in water rather a lot. I wouldn't let this put you off putting the model as it is really nice and the very subtle detail really doesn't come across viewing it on the net. It beats getting out the filler and mixing it with sand which always produces a rather unrealistic effect IMHO.

Anyway, here's the pics:
