Another short update…..
I’m sure I’ve mentioned previously that Mark Nichipor (my Brave Fusilier blog) very kindly sent me a lot of information on the redoubt and its garrison for my Bunker Hill project. The maps and dimensions clearly showed that to groundscale the redoubt would be incredibly small, so with a bit of fudging and tweaking I’ve ended up making it around twice as big as it should be but it will accommodate the troops that garrisoned it. Just means I shall tweak some of the other distances.
I decided to make it a drop on terrain piece rather than make the whole hill etc. as these days I try to think of storage as well. Any way after a bit of searching I bought some of the resin earth rampart sets from Pendraken and with a bit of cutting, green stuff etc and using some plasticard sheet I must have had for over 10 years ! I’ve ended up with
The model has been undercoated and ink washed ready for painting. The base of unpainted figures is just for scale……
The small wooden flèche protects the sally point within the redoubt 😁, overall I’m pretty pleased with the result and I can press on to get it finished, I’m painting some extra ‘firing’ militia figures on smaller bases to garrison it.
I also need to make the small stone wall for the beach and do some work on some of the fences.
