40mm: Some tents for the big fellas ..
I received a pack of 10 white hankerchiefs for Xmas, hmm I thought they could be useful for something (apart from their normal function). Material for tents ! I needed some tents for my 40mm collection, so I scaled up the cardboard former I used for making my 30mm tents. One former ready to try out the hanky sourced tent ....
A hankerchief was cut in quarters, I used one piece and glued/stretched it round the former. Then cut the ends and glued them down, final touch I used a black fine marker pen to indicate the ties on tent flaps.
Looks OK to me, an order for more has been made to the tent-maker ..
A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
