In past shows, we have been selling toy soldiers or getting rid of old stuff but this show is the first one of a new approach. I no longer have soldiers to sell so my stand is full of terrain. It takes alot of time to fill 12 feet of space with scratch built 1/30th scale terrain pieces. I just about got finished today and here are photos of the results:
|most of it grouped together|
I wanted to do something set in Southern Europe as there are a few ranges around now that can use that sort of terrain. This is designed as a shelf display with it being only 6" deep. I used a photograph of a real building for inspiration with the front arches particularly catching my eye. The stone work is carved Daz Pronto air dried clay and the pan tiles are resin sheets that I have had made for me. I was going to use some other tiles but when I came to it I hadn't got enough.
That is it for now with the photos. There is more that will be around on the day and there will be a model of Trostle farm, its barn and waggon shed as it was during the Battle of Gettysburg. This is for a customer and I have promised not to show him photos until he sees the real thing so I don't want to risk him seeing them here. There will be an article in the Toy Soldier Collector magazine later this year all about it but I will do a separate post just about that next week, after the show.
All these items are for sale at the show. If you have seen anything here that you want but can't make London then email me and if I still have it after the weekend we can sort out a sale then. If you are coming to the show then come over and have a look- they always look better in the flesh. I have things for sale to suit all pockets!
