bits for interiors and bigger photo backdrops

Getting ready for a feast ...

A recent Ebay pickup, four resin cast items for a large feast or party ...
 will need to make a suitable interior room plus more people and servants too :)

Higher Backdrops for picture taking

To get some higher backdrop boards I bought a couple of the standard Daler art board sheets - colour Delft Blue. They provide a basic taller backdrop for picture taking...
 The blue is a bit light, need to experiment a bit, but at least a full height picture of the ship is possible (and also larger buildings when made); I may add some clouds to one sheet and keep the other plain.

Playing with forts (4) .... stone roman fort and ditch

I thought it would be useful to be able to represent the roman fort/town with stone wall having a ditch as well. I made a simple causeway pice and also a ramp to bring a road up to the right level.

The rear of the roman wall, a bit bare inside the fort - I can use some basic buildings I have to fill in for roof age (I may make a couple of small barrack buildings)
 the ditch is represented by the gap between a straight table riser section and hill sections; the small causeway is made from cardboard and stone effect paper.
 the ramp made using same materials as the causeway piece and gets the road up to the right level...
Thats all for now on forts :)
