My latest projects

Hello fellow gamers! It's been a while since my last post, so here's a quick update on what I've been working on!

Here is a gate I made. This will work well for my War of the Roses terrain. I also made a few more feet of hedges. I use those paint stirrer sticks as bases. You can get them at most "do it yourself" home improvement stores.
I've been building lots of little terrain bits. These are the perfect kind of things to work on when I don't have time for larger projects. I have been focusing on redoing my trees, woods, hedges, fences, etc. I've been creating a lot of new things, but I'm also going back and improving on some older terrain. I find that every few years I need to update some of my older projects!

A barn and some fencing I made for my ACW collection. These are some Dixon dismounted Federal cavalry that I recently painted.

A pile of wood or hasty works that I quickly made and glued together! A little glue and dry brushing works magic on these simple projects!

The barn that I made. I used an app on my iPhone that turned the picture into a black and white sketch. I thought it looked cool!

I'm honored to be play-testing John Hill's new set of ACW rules. I've also been painting figures for possible inclusion in the rule book and future scenario books. How cool is that! I've currently got a unit of 28mm Rebs on my painting table.
