15mm Egyptian Camp

Post by Texus Maximus » Tue Jul 30, 2019 12:03 am

A work in progress. This camp is based on the Egyptian fortifications on the Nubian frontier. There is a good illustration of the walls at Buhen (1800 B.C.) in “Fortifications of Ancient Egypt” that served as inspiration. Some of the distinctive features of the Egyptian forts are half-circle crenellations, plastered brickwork, angled buttresses going about 2/3 of the way up the wall, and painted scenes designed to warn away enemies.

The wide panels around the gate will have colorful depictions of the Egyptian war god, Pharoah wearing the blue “war crown”, and the name of the fort in hieroglyphics. The walls will be white.

Components of this camp are wooden blocks, dollhouse trim for the crenallations, spackle, balsa wood, and brick columns from Baueda.

Basing texture added and walls primed with acrylic paint. A few Khurasan brand figures to guard the walls and alert the garrison.

Nearly complete. The gate needs to be finished and some guards placed on the wall.

Great work again paul. You certainly have the knack for storytelling via your camps.

Cheers,

The gate has been detailed a little and some figures - Khurasan command figures and converted Old Glory and Essex figures - are ready to paint and use as a garrison.

As I've said previously, great work. I do like the nod to Tom Sawyer :D .

As I've said previously, a little dark.

One man to paint a wall, two men to make sure he does it, or maybe that's just Egyptian bureaucracy in action.
