No games planned until next weekend if anyone is available so in the lull I've been focussing on finishing some terrain pieces.
For some reason lost in the mists of time I acquired several feet of canals. Well actually 14 feet, enough to run the length of my table! This weekend I have actually finished all the sections and here they are, complete with a narrow boat. (Definitely not a twee holiday barge but a grotty working one).
If I remember correctly, and as seems most likely, they were purchased for a game set during the War of the 1st Coalition in Flanders in 1794-1795. Thanks to my recent departure into the world of internal combustion engines, tanks and early WW2 stuff I can now also use them in some 1940 Fall of France scenarios.
The sections are made of resin and were very quick to paint. I'm happy with them. I’ve got a couple of pairs of lock gates to finish together with two more narrow boats but they are on today’s list of things to do.
Thats a cracking looking canal Colin, perfect for quite a few periods, including the wars of the Sun King.ReplyDelete
Up the cut without a paddle eh? Nice multi period addition Colin. Had mine made by the Last Valley, harder wearing I'd hope given my propensity for dropping stuff in GHQ!ReplyDelete
