WIP: Wagons, Gabions, Hay Ricks and Corn Stooks #2

I carried on with these today and got all the way to matt varnishing the gabions, hay ricks and corn stooks. For the gabions I could have skipped doing a spray basecoat as I ended up painting all the parts in different colours anyway. I think I should probably have skipped the first dry-brush step on the gabions themselves as it seems to have merged the colours a bit too much and you can't really tell the difference between the earth and the wickerwork. Oh well, too late now.

I have given the wagons a Klear/ink coat but I'm holding off on the matt spray varnish until I've done the basing.

And here's a pic of the danish artillery, supported by the Green-Blue and Green-Red regiments of foot occupying a redoubt in front of the hay rocks and corn stooks:


  1. You know I like my scenery Tamsin, great work.

  2. They all look good. I like the flags especially.

  3. Nice work Tamsin. I love the final picture. The scenery looks great and for a bonus, " rooks and stools" is fun to say. :)

  4. Those are looking great! Nice work on them!

  5. These look great!

    I so need to get more scenery done.

  6. Nice work. Like the wagons. Gaming needs more scenarios with wagons.

  7. Very nice work Tamsin, the troops look very cool behind their gabions!!

  8. Cheers folks. I'm quite pleased with how they've turned out and definitely tempted to order more bits from Timecast.

    @ MP and Ray - I couldn't resist doing an "in use" photo. Glad you liked it :)

  9. Very nice. Too few gamers devote the proper time to terrain, and it makes such a difference.
