28mm 1:56 "Rustic Pigsty & Pen"
This kit is supplied flat packed and unpainted and consists of :
1: One floor plate with notched sides which accept the fences.
2: One separate fence base strip. I designed the kit so you have the option of having the model free standing or backing up against another building or wall. If you back it up to a wall or building, you can have a piece of fence elsewhere on your wargames table.
3:Four fence pieces. On one side there is a gate which can be glued in open or closed positions. Sufficient panels 50 and 30mm wide with distressed single planks to clad the fencing.
4:One 5 piece weathered pigsty
5: Two bases for pigs to be glued on (note PIGS are NOT SUPPLIED) If you want to have your pig pen empty of live stock, the bases can be used for mortars or prone models.
6: One bag containing earth style substrate "flock". Enough will be included to cover the sty and separate bases. Wet patches / puddles can be added by daubing with gloss acrylic varnish.
Assembly is easy. Painting is optional. Once assembled and painted coat the base with PVA and scatter on the flock. If you keep the bases and sty off the pen when doing this you can reposition in different games.
The pigs and British Paratrooper models are for scale purposes only.
A "painting wood effects" totorial can be found in the blog.
