Almost finished on the workbench at present is my Warbases 28mm watchtower. This is the second MDF building I've put together and it's proving an enjoyable little project.
I started off building the model straight out of the packet; straightforwardly done whilst I was watching a Rugby League World Cup match on the telly. Then, when the glue had dried, I proceeded to thatch the roof with flattened worms of Milliput, scored with a craft knife.
As you can see, I've also added some filler to the walls to add a bit of texture.
The first coats of paint are now on and there's just a bit more dry brushing to do on the woodwork.
I'm now debating whether to put it on a base, perhaps on something of a mound.
In production for Andreivia (and perhaps for WW2) is this strong-point. It's the old Airfix gun emplacement but it's lacking the original gun. I'm considering using the old spring-loaded Britains gun in its place. The problems with doing this are twofold. Firstly the gun's a bit big and secondly, it's probably at least fifty years old; should I be repainting what some might consider an antique?
Moving on to yet another period, for Sharp Practice I'm working on a couple of additional groups for the war in the Peninsula. First up these HaT Royal Marines, who just need their bases completing...
... and then some more HaT Spanish Guerrillas (who may double as United Irishmen for the 1798)....
