28mm Scale ACW 13 Inch Mortar

Hi All, I was after a 'big gun' to use as a prop in some of my 28mm ACW skirmish games and liked the look of the 13 Inch Mortar. I found three makers on the net for this gun in 28mm but the only one that would sell the gun and accessories without figures was Redoubt (I have artillerymen already). Th...

Re: 28mm Trees - Basing

Hi All, First two 28mm trees based and ready the rest of this batch now fixed to bases and drying. To base these I went with 4cm squares of 1mm styrene (3cm would have done I think), I drilled a guide hole in the centre and then fixed the trees to them witha 'blob' of Milliput. Sorry for the dodgy p...

This will help with setup time and tree movement when figures plough through woods. I can use my separately based trees to add shape to woods placing them around the multi bas...
