This is the fencing initially based on wooden strips and a bit of sand, pebbles and a few additional upright posts to give a slightly more random rustic appearance as the plastic is a little too regular to the eye.
I then sprayed the whole lot brown, painted the bases a slightly darker brown, some dry brushing, then decorated the bases with grass, bushes etc. Bob’s your uncle 🙂
Here is a shot of the fencing on the table with my Union Forces to date.
Two brigades (or three small ones) some supporting artillery and cavalry. Worryingly they have been completely outflanked by the rebels in the shot 😢 need to sort that out.
The rebels have fallen slightly behind so I need another 2/3 Regiments for them. Also on the list are some skirmishers, dismounted cavalry and of course artillery limbers. The good thing is I am now in a position to let them stretch their legs as I develop the project further.
