Here is the 16th duel folks!

The rules are a nice twist: The combatants have decided to go for a before or after battle scene; both chose before, so as well as general rule considerations you should also think about their title and how well they reflect their rule.

You have a week to choose your winner. Once again gentlemen take your places and may the best painter win.
Please leave comments until after the duel has finished

Found out (by accident) that if acrylic paint is mixed with plaster of paris (Rigips) it makes the resulting basing like cheese (don´t eat :nono: :-) ) and it remains workable for .....ever (?) Things can be glued to it, it can be painted "dug up" etc. For instance, I´m going to play around with covering large areas of it with flock grass and see if it will be "dug up " as mini turf, to re-create cannon ball hits etc. If you look at the second picture, just behind the cannon wheel, it shows what I mean,the torn up grass, the tracks were made after, not during, same goes for the bod digging.

Very nice Paul! :thumbup: :thumbup:

One thing, I would get rid of the thingy underneath the right wheel. I know there would be some dirt stuck to it, but not that much.
Just a thought. ;-)
