First up is my Seminary College model. This is from Sally 4th and is just one outstanding model (and I suppose the center piece for my terrain in this scenario). I'm working to finish up the roofing tiles and waiting on a few missing parts for one of the end walls (loosely fitted in place until I get those parts).
|Earlier in progress photo - still working on the|
sides for the other half when I took this picture. The
Union dismounted cavalry gives you an idea of the scale.
|The end is in sight. I was missing some parts|
for the right side "end" wall - waiting for the missing
parts to show up - hopefully next week. Until then
that end wall on the right side is just loose fitted into
|Roofing is in progress but I couldn't help but|
throw it out on the table for a picture or two. The right
side end wall is still loose fitted in place until
I get my missing parts.
|Another angle ... coming together. Will need|
to finish the base edges with tufts, flowers and static grass.
|Two buildings I had completed for my Pickett's Charge|
game and will reuse in this scenario.
|Union cavalry on the table to be based. Berdan's|
Sharpeshooters are also there getting based for
the Little Round Top game. In the back you can
see Buford and my Chamberlain model.
|Union artillery crew and limber team (still need to finish|
painting the limber and guns). Two additional
Confederate infantry units also waiting to be based.
|A few weeks ago - laying out the mat just after it had|
arrived and getting and idea of how it will all
Here are some pictures of the setup --- about done the Seminary College as you've seen above - and I've started painting the house nearest the Seminary College model --- but it is still mostly primer black at the moment.
Finally, the last of my snake rail fencing. I managed to pick up three more of the Lemax snake rail fence kits from Ebay. I'm in the process of trimming down the tops of the cross beams and getting them primed brown before they get a drybrush of grey and some static grass. These will allow me to fill out the fencing around the Seminary College grounds.
As I mentioned earlier - I have my play test of this scenario set for April 22nd - so just about two more weeks to finish everything up. My Little Round Top scenario will be the next one to wrap up --- however that doesn't require any additional troops that will not already been done for this scenario (basing Berdan's Sharpshooters along with the other stuff for McPherson's Ridge). The mat for the scenario is in progress and I've been collecting the rocks I need to scatter about the table and do Devil's Den. So ... lot's going on.
Stay tuned for the play test in a couple of weeks.
