Wittenberg - Sentry Boxes for Palace Gate

As I've had a bad back for the last few days, I felt wanted to do something. So dosed up on painkillers, when I could sit at my modelling desk, I needed an easy project - so I decided to do the sentry boxes for my palace diorama. These were made out of scraps of cardboard, I went for a simple colour scheme red with black stripes - which goes rather well with the sentries' uniforms.


  1. Cool! Simple and effective sentry boxes.

    I know how it can be with a bad back. Take care and I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I too have occasional back problems . . . actually my back hurts right now (but it is kidney stones moving -- not the back).

    Anyway I fully understand wanting to find something to occupy yourself with while not being clear-headed enough (because of the pain pills) to do something "important" or particularly serious.

    This looks like it was a very good project . . . and you are right . . . it does suit the uniforms.

  3. Compliments -the sentry boxes do NOT betray the illness & the painkillers- and best wishes.
