Sculpt and Cast - 28mm seated figures
I wanted some extra figures to put in my row boats to represent other armies troops; decided to have a go at sculpting some, which came out reasonably well. The masters...
I made up a mould and cast up about 15 of each figure, enough for my immediate needs. Some sample castings
the mould works fine each time but the castings are beset by 'bubbles' and take a while to clean up. All-in-all some useful basic sitting figures. Have used up my supply of metal so I will have to accumulate some more before the next major phase in mould making and casting.
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.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
