I am at heart, a history buff, and my interest in history includes reading history, visiting battlefield sites, watching movies about historical subjects, and a strong focus on Frederick the Great of Prussia and the Seven Years War.
I’ve been sorting some of my photos and I liked this one enough to post on the blog. All of the elements come together quite nicely: Herb Gundt buildings, Richard Ansell’s sculpts, and Cigar Box Battle Mats.
Here we have some American militia gathering to meet a nearby threat.
Great photo to see Jim. Everything comes together very effectively. It is really interesting to see the look of 3D terrain with the coloured mat. Which particular mat is it?ReplyDelete
#510 New Europe 6 x 4 plus mat from Cigar Box MatsDelete
It’s very bucolic. Love those buildings.ReplyDelete
Yes. I dare say that your set-up now rivals anything put on by the WHC in its hey day. Like a model train layout, there are so many wonderful details to take in, yet at the same time the table remains playable. Wargaming perfection in my view.ReplyDelete
Nice photograph and lovely tableau, indeed.ReplyDelete
(but possibly airbrush out the modern machine made round hay bales?)(sorry) 8-)
Yes, I’ve been told that before.😄Delete
Yes, quite an idyllic modelling/wargaming scene. The simple backdrop worked so well and clearly good lighting for the photo too.ReplyDelete
