Anglo-Saxon Great Hall - Finished at Last!
« on: November 08, 2012, 03:36:02 PM »
Guys,

I've finally completed my Anglo-Saxon Great Hall project. The finished article is here:
http://mitchwargaming.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/saxon-great-hall-part-3.html
There are two previous parts describing the rest of the build.



Enjoy!
Measure with a micrometer, mark with chalk, cut with an axe, hammer to fit, paint to match!

Beautiful. I also read your other articles too, very inspiring.

The polystirene in the oven trick is not something I could risk myself.  lol

Thank you! It was fun to do, if a little frustrating in parts.

Impressive! The exterior looks beautiful, but I also really like the interior.

Cheers CyberAlien. The temptation to really go to town on the interior was very strong. The Regia Angolorum reconstruction at Wychurst is absolutely breathtaking and gives so much inspiration that not putting in every stick of furniture, tapestry and internal decoration is incredibly difficult!

Hi Mitch,

As a member of Regia and a regular contributor to Wychurst I am glad that you have found inspiration from it!

Just for info, the Longhall roof consisted of 35,000 hand rove shingles, individually fitted to the roof. ( I did about a sixth of them!)

Thanks Damas. I know there are people who are very "down" on re-enactment groups and regard them as totally beyond the pale as sources for wargaming. I don't hold to this view, and in the case of Regia, the sheer volume of effort and quality of work undertaken means that this arguement simply doesn't stand.

So just very slightly more of a ballache than the modelling project then?! lol
