Coast III

Update on the coast sections I have been making for the Crisis Point 2 weekend in April. Now finished 14 sections so nearly there. I think I will just need to make one more section to link it to the southern table edge but until I have managed to lay it out in full I won't know.

I have been documenting the process on how I made these and will post them as soon as possible. Need to try and set up the whole layout just to check what I have left to do. Next up is rivers and roads, especially the E6.

Coast II

Four more coastline sections nearly complete, just some touching up to finish and the Leven Miniatures lighthouse needs painting. I have been asked by Ian S to do a step by step guide on how I made these so as I have three more just started I have begun to photograph each stage and when I have completed them I will post the step by step guide. I have a few more Leven Miniatures lighthouses so I hope to add them to add to the coastline feel.

More to come soon including the step by step guide to my coastline sections.

During construction of the old WWII emplacement I hit upon the idea of creating a coastline that could be laid onto a battlemat. So as I am responsible for the Bodo table for this years Crisis Point 2 weekend I though I would build enough pieces to allow the fjord to extend along way along the table to give plenty of options for amphibious landings etc. Here is the coastline so far, three modules completed with one more WIP. More are cut ready as I think I will need about 16ft-18ft of coastline eventually.

Lots more to do including lighthouses from Leven Miniatures and a large bridge.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

Due to my sisters illness and subsequent passing this blog hasn't been updated for a while. But with Crisis Point 2 taking place in April it is time to get going again on the terrain and forces required for the two day megagame. So I will be updating as much as possible over the next few weeks. Although some items will have to kept secret as we wouldn't want NATO finding out what we have planned.
