A Little 28mm Terrain Work

 Today's task was to clean up my gaming area and begin to organize the ever-growing lead pile.  Well, to be honest, the ever growing lead, resin and plastic pile.  I decided once the clean up was done to build some 28mm terrain - namely Architects of War's Stone Wall and Forest sets.  These are nice little kits to work with and went from in-the-box to done in about three hours.

 The stone wall set consists of four 9 inch straight pieces and two small ends.  I primed everything in a light grey auto primer and dry brushed a darker shade of grey for highlighting.  Add some ground foam and it's done.  I think they came out nicely.
 Next up was a set of 4 tree stands - this is a nifty way to make a forrest and works with both 15mm and 28mm scale figures.  The product comes with resin base and pre-made Woodland Scenics trees. It's a simple but very effective way to build decent tree scenery.

 The "completed" forrest.  I've got another of these sets to finish which will provide a nice sized forrest for my War of 1812 through ACW gaming.  Like the walls, these were a snap to both assemble and paint.  The resin bases have lots of details in the undergrowth.

Last, but not least, I also assembled the Architects of War Meeting House/Church kit.  This kit is a bit more involved as it has a fully detailed interior but it will make a fine North American themed focal point for an upcoming battle.

All in all, it was a productive day.  And my Saints won and are now 3-0 - yes it was a very good day indeed!
