Outstanding  :o
It‘s the small details like the small door beneath the stairs on the last pic which really make your tables special.

Well, now that changes everything of course! Shoddy workmanship... not  ;)
Still that’s a beautiful table full of fantastic detail. I wish I could make it to that sho just to have a closer look.

There`s always a possibility of that,i also really wanted to do the river boards as i have enough height to run the gully`s in as well. Another time i will just get the urge and create something for it.Remember this was six boards to start with and on two occasions i`ve added three more plus the extra buildings so ever evolving 8)

The river would also definitely add some neat gameplay options, for sure.

Hi
Had some fun with teddy bear stuffing to create these two smokes for the game.I cut out a piece of MDF  and glued a load of coins to it for weight during which i trapped a folded over piece of wire into the stack then  a bit at a time i superglued the wire and pushed cotton fibre down onto it until i had reached the top doing this about severn times with clumps.
To paint them i first sprayed them totally black  then from the bottom sprayed red then yellow then a all over mid grey then a final hint of white near the top.
Cheers AL

Great work, this is such a treat to watch.

Just one comment and I hate to be picky with such great work but when a fire burns it actually burns brightest (and yellowest) at the bottom with flames going from that to orange and red before the black smoke. It's a mistake I was guilty of until someone pointed this out to me. 

This is a good example as it shows petrol on fire, but you can see that it is yellow in the centre and slowly comes out to orange and red:



I found giving the base a coat of yellow first and then taking a brush and dabbing and dry brushing around the edges with orange and red shades helped get that effect on this flame and smoke that I made using clumping foam:

Good example of fire, but there wouldn’t be three tone camo at Stalingrad  lol
