Aspern Essling building base 2 picture heavy
« on: April 23, 2018, 07:40:03 AM »
Some of you might remember a while ago I did a large building base for the Aspern Essling campaign in the Napoleonic wars. There's a couple of pictures of the first one at the bottom of this post. I've gotten the second one finished now and I'm hoping for a third  :)












And here is the first one for posterity's sake.

Outstanding job!
One may look at the pics again and again and find one more little detail!

Seriously - you need to write a “How to” book so those of us who aren’t worthy can learn from an obvious Master of the craft.  :-* :-* :-*

Aw that's blooming lovely James. Just stunning.

The different colours in the wood planks and aged wood are a splend touch sir.

You do an alright job at that James, have you considered turning it into a job ;)

Cheers

Great work from you as always James! Every time I see your work I keep thinking to myself, I have to get that Samurai castle building going...but then I see the level of your skills and feel, well, intimidated.... :( But I hope to give it a go before long!

Beautiful textures and colours. The last photo - I didn't notice the first time round, but the stone paving looks like it's covered in lichen.
