The rocky outcrop is/was the end of a burned treated-pine small log. ...found it by chance .
... was originally intended to go to the 1/300 scale sci-fi,

I want to 'redo' this deliberately and see if I can 'recreate' this /more of these .
... I think this turned out really well.

maybe throw a rubber cast over it and see if can hollow-pour something 'big' like this ?

Howdy , just got these 'finished' after adding a 60mm mortar stand at the last moment .

Glad I did ... yeah, these are always handy on the tabletop ...if you're not carrying the ammo .

Mules for that ....

Amtracks !

I tried mounting the howitzer version on a base to see how it looked by comparison. ...It's already a beast
...a stand makes it that bit more ... imposing.!

The mortar is a nice addition. The mules are really cool. Amtracks too. Nice work. The guys that play in 15mm are lucky you came along. You are giving them lots of nice toys to play with.

Yeah, those mules are looking excellent. All of it is, but especially the mules - more argument for a Hue game.
I think you are right, jimmi has been a great addition to the 15mm world... :cheers

You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?

Thanks for the kind words Gents ! , ... My everlasting thankyou to Martin Goddard at Peter Pig for bringing me "into the light" of 15mm Vietnam .

Yeah Baby Yeah !... I've been making/prototyping small-brick and tile shophouse-rows with a view to a Hue cityfight.

I even got old photos out (I visited Hue in 1994) to look for terrain ideas ...most are of the Military Museum just outside the Citadel. ...not much use.
I've got a few shots only of ornate gates inside the walled inner section and a section of (rebuilt) street.

...Hahaha ! you could probably use the same rubbled-brick-and tiled city ruins for ETO with a medieval walled 'inner city' (in red-brick) and a few 'chinese temple' buildings ... all smashed to bits and with a bucket of rubble scatter poured over the top for Hue by the time the 'Marines moved in ...

...it's not that large a piece of ground either ...would be easy to do a good wargame of the 'problems of Hue' .
