40mm - Trial casts from new mould..

Finally got the next 18C mould done,  the contents were
-weapons (sabre, straight sword, pistol, 17C musket and 18C musket)
-march attack musketeer
-alternate grenadier & fusilier heads.

Initial casts weren't too good, but the addition of some air vents solved the problems, some trial casts
the heads don't come out with full detail every time; will do some more and see how it goes - overall I'm pleased with the results.

Wittenberg river marines - transport barges...

Some of the boats for transporting cargo on the river Oudear have been purchased and adapted for the Wittenberg river marines to use as transport/landing barges; some are fitted with small swivel guns. The river marines carry out a river transport exercise near their northern base as Gugenstadt....
[barges as constructed previously - see http://tidders-kingdomofwittenberg.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/28mm-transport-barges-for-river-oudear.html;  using rowers from the landing boats shown in the previous post]

in the forest....

Deep in the Sackwald forest ....

The bears had got home to their cottage and were very annoyed - while they were out for a long walk someone had slept in one of their beds and eaten all their porridge !
That was a nice rest and some yummy porridge, thought the young lady as she walked back up to the village...
