    As part of a game project I am working on I have put a post together looking at the build process for my Bantry Bay Cliffs and the models selected for my French Troop Transports.

    The cliffs were a bit of a ‘proof of concept’ build to construct them generically for other coastal scenarios I have in mind together with facilitating the addition of coastal forts and batteries, whilst keeping the basing less conspicuous.

    Likewise the models were designed and selected to capture the look of the commandeered French India merchantmen that were used in the expedition in 1796.

    In the next post I will show these models completed and rigged.

    Very impressive result – the little ‘stack’ works well and close enough to the main headland that you can imaging the old rock bridge falling in the water.

    I do love the Brigade buildings. They are a pleasure to paint and conjure up the look of the relevant period perfectly. I only wish I could ‘justify’ using some of the ancient Roman buildings they have ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had not seen the idea of duct tape (or duck tape etc) to back the foam – previously I had used thick paint but I’ll try to remember that idea (thinking about some cliffs for my new bat [direct link on here] and 15mm ‘cavemen’ figures).
