About Me

London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

Finished: Jungle Log Bridges

 


They're done! These have taken me a bit over a week, but there wasn't a great deal I could do to speed things up. Here are some pics of the individual bridges:

Earlier this week I bought a wicker trellis section from B&Q which I spent an hour or so separating out the individual twigs. I've ended up with more than enough of the thicker ones to make a couple of wider bridges for vehicles:


and thinner ones for doing Japanese log bunkers and making some stand-alone bridges to span between "islands" of swamp terrain:

  1. These have turned out great Tamsin, and nice find of the base materials

  2. Nice work. I really like the lashings and the once with the middle spar that sits in the river. Using broken-down wicker is giving me ideas...

  5. @ Dave - thanks! I got my original batch from Poundland but they didn't have any in stock when I looked on Monday - possibly a seasonal item? :)

    @ Grant - cheers! The wicker trellis is handy as a source for lots of straight-ish sticks. :)

    @ Herkybird - thanks! Was there any doubt that I'd make them look really good when finished? :)

    @ Ian - cheers! Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, so flatter away! :)

    1. Thanks! Despite the fiddliness of the lashings, I enjoyed making these bridges. :)
