Ready for the Next Campaign (WI Quick Fire)

 Nice to have a pice published in Wargames Illustrated 415 July 2022 issue...

it was submitted before I started work on upgrading the Begovian janissaries; when these are finished I will be ready to get the campaign going ...

Visiting the vineyard ...

King Leopold and his son, along with some members of the court are on a visit to the nearby Klosterhauschen vineyard.


After their walk round, they headed up to the main house and to the cellars for a wine tasting ...

---oXo---

The vineyard scenic pieces shown above were made recently, info on how I made them here: https://ww2tanksalot.blogspot.com/2022/06/making-vineyard.html

Refurbishing some rough ground scenic pieces....

 After using some rough ground scenic pieces for a recent game,  I noticed before putting them away that some of them look rather tired - somewhat faded (too many little feet running over them in the past few years..)

So a little refurb and improvement needed, initially gave them a refresh of the bare ground areas and then added some new static grass and some other mixed scatter.
One finished and looking better..
I have some Woodland Scenics water product left, perhaps a little pool of water on a couple of the pieces would look good..
After that I found some spare grass tufts, on they went; finished ...
I like this one the most ....
The sections mixed with my pond and small marsh sections on part of a game mat - a nice bit of moorland...

Kapikulu - Elite Begovian Cavalry

Finished a unit of my new Kapikulu castings for the  Begovian army; hopefully all the Wittenberg troops will see will be the rear view ...

From the front ...
Formed up with their heavily armoured chums ..

Windmill

Dusted off my old Airfix (Dapol) windmill, applied some tlc and weathered it a bit; followed by giving it a smaller footprint base.
