Mill on the Yonne.


I’ve now finished the watermill feature (see previous posts for info on the construction etc). 



The wheel, boardwalk and pillar have been painted and drybrushed a few times to pull out the details. The wheel has some varnish and ripple maker added to try to represent the wheel turning in the river with wet blades. Some ripple maker was brushed onto a plastic tray and when dry peeled off and glued to the wheel to try and denote dripping water (not sure this is convincing, but will do for now). 



‘Monsieur Miller’ has made an appearance and is sorting out his next delivery of flour, clearly ambivalent to the forthcoming battle along the river!

the "water-effect" is well done in my opinion: it works fine.

Stunning! That's a very atmospheric piece of terrain - and maybe a valuable objective.

That's turned out very nice - if a little clean ;-)

Some more weeds and slime wouldn't go amiss

Lovely building that will no doubt do credit to the Battle of Cravant demo game at Salute.

I just wish we could have afforded to make it down this year :O(

A lovely piece, I especially like Monsieur Miller, maybe a cart outside his premises would add some extra interest?

Good luck with the demo, take lots of photographs for us please !
