28mm Yamashiro - 2nd update - Page 2
« on: July 30, 2022, 05:18:44 PM »
Iíve decided to make a little corner yamashiro to show the potential of the new releases. The clear Ďgatewayí is an unfinished master that should be complete in a week or so.

Itís not based on any particular one (as there are hundreds, with more being discovered every year) but it should show various aspects of a typical yamashiro of the sengoku period.

The storehouse is actually the master as Iím waiting for a miscast (all the components are either miscasts of first pulls).

None of the walls are stuck together yet as Iíll be concentrating on the baseboard first. The earthen Ďbridgesí crossing the moat were a defence tactic as it concentrated the enemy when approaching the walls.

Itís three layers of 25mm foam. My boards are 50mm thick and the extra 25mm will give it some height. The roofs and watchtower will all be removable for ease of storage.

There will be some fencing in front of the gateway but that will become clear when Iíve roughed it out.









cheers

James

So, the initial groundwork is done and the simple gateway is almost ready to mould. When Iíve got a first pull I can join it to the rest of the walls (which are now glued together) and start to paint them.

Once the walls are painted I can stick them to the base board, blend them in front and back and then finish the groundwork proper.

Iíll also be making some siege equipment; some of which might eventually become available in the webshop  :)





In 15mm too of course... :D

Of course  :D
