sure the flags blow the same way. The figures
are still on their temporary bases.
With a vey rainy weekend, it was time to do some scenery at Brooke.
I finally painted the last section of backdrop. This area is mostly a bare hill dominated by Redoubt Number 2. That completes all the backdrops, though I may have some touch up to do in Aquia when I get there.
I decided to add a copse of trees where the backdrop bumps out to avoid a plumbing pipe. The trees help soften the visual impact of the protrusion. I used Supertree twigs attached to small sticks for trunks. I wanted the trees in this area to be smaller for some forced perspective so I didn't make wire armature trees.
|Fences run all along the main line from Accokeek to Broke.|
One of the key scenic features in this area are the fences. Since the terrain is mostly open, the fences add a nice detail.
I have a pack of Woodland scenics cows, but I probably could use more.
