I have nearly completed the field works constructed by the Russians to protect the ongoing work on the fortification of Sebastopol proper.
These are 6 foot wide and cover the table from edge to edge. There are three redans, each containing three heavy guns, connected by lines manned by infantry. The centre redan is supported by a three gun raised redoubt.
All figures are 15mm Falcon Figures, the works are home made but the gabions are from Baueda. These come in packets of 16 and look very well when they are painted up. I have painted 275 so far!
Once again I have to acknowledge the work of Eric Burgess and his Din of Battle website which is a major source of inspiration.
