    This is starting to look like an artillery position now.
    I placed the gabions , cutted some of the wood coffee stirrers to make the wood planks and front of the cannon, added some wood sticks to support the holding strenght of gabions and front of the gun.
    Still need to get the second 12lbs gun.

    I finaly placed the engineer and Artillery officer onto final position on the battlefield, i think that their little.scene makes lots of sense there.
    I finished the ground works on the sencond position and added some grass tufts, dirt and stones.
    Next step it will be painting the wood color on the platform and wood sticks. 20170110_233216.jpg 20170110_233233.jpg 20170110_233333.jpg

    Excellent Daniel. At this rate the National Parks Service will have you doing dioramas for all their Revolutionary War centres.

    I have cleaned and primed the gun with self etching primer.
    I have painted the base color for the gun in copper, the artillery pieces at Yorktown were of Bronze metal which has a great amount of copper, and when it is exposed to the outdoors with time lay that sky blue/greenish look.
    So, i layed the base color using Testors Copper (cuivre) ,let dried and applied vallejo Sepia wash.
    Later on i will add the bronze using some sort of Dry brush technique, i hope it works since all of this is an experiment.

    I've layed the base color for the gun wood frame using vallejo iraqui sand, once dry i proceeded to add few washes of a well diluted vallejo german brown/black.
    Once dry out i started to paint the sky blue color of the guns at Yorktown.
    I decided to try scale 75 sky blue, well diluted and applied in many layers, in tiny dapples and uneven fashion, some areas will have more colors than others, that gave me a weathered or faded blue color painted over wood, i am very happy with the result.
