Conflicts in the North American theatre, particularly for ACW and AWI, need the distinctive “zig zag” or “worm” style fencing to set the right tone for the battlefield. So I’ve taken a short break from painting miniatures to build some.
These were based on the test piece (here) I made a while back. Simply kebab sticks glued to MDF bases (Charlie Foxtrot Models). Painting was easy: spray with Halfords grey primer, heavy dry brush of a lighter grey tester pot from the DIY store, then another heavy dry brush with an off-white tester pot. Basing as per my troops.
The fences in the pic above are made from matchsticks. Painting was as follows. Prime with matt black spray, heavy dry brush of of VMC Leather Brown (any dark, flat brown would be good), very light dry brush with AP Uniform Grey.
I’ll probably add some cross and rail (with stones) style fencing too, but this lot will do for now.
