Medieval Castle- Part Two

Well here we are, finally finished after all this time. As you will have read, I started this five years ago and it was with guilt that led me to get it started somewhat reluctantly when Azazel threw down the January challenge. I couldn’t let this opportunity go by, so thanks mate for the spur […]

Medieval Castle

What should I say, eh, neglected stuff, that’s what you folk call it, nice, I just call it too hard to move on to something easier! Ok, the castle was given to me by my girls when they were young, as a Christmas present in 2013 when I was doing the Medieval village.  It was […]

English Civil War

Well I’ve finally finished it after all the planning, getting helpful tips from my followers and the research trip. It was going well until I realized that after painting all the cavalry and infantry that they wouldn’t fit on the base without looking crowded so I had to extend the base to its current size […]

Retreat From Moscow 1812

Size: 60cm (2FT) X40cm (1.4FT) 2kgs

This diorama is still the small size, just a little wider than the Vikings diorama to allow for the three paths which I’d decided on. As for the weight, again I kept it to a minimum with a thin base board, foam core to form the terrain covered by a thin layer of plaster. I have long had the desire to do a snow diorama, a challenge I admit, as I live far from any snow and have not had much chance to know …

Viking Raid

Size: 60cm (2ft. ) x 30cm (1ft. ) 1.7kgs.

As with the Viking diorama I have stayed with the smaller size. This decision meant I had to make a big change to my original scheme which was to incorporate a Viking ship (I had one but after I’d made the base I found it wouldn’t fit). With the necessary change of plan, the end result was a scratch built fishing boat and a smaller area of water with a little creek and jetty .
