These are the first painted picture of the AT tank position I was working on last month.One painted for Europe and one for North Africa. In the background are the reinforced shell holes….
I am adding a couple of ‘breached’ sections to the range of Courtine pieces. Here are pictures of both masters – one for both the four and five sided Star Fort.
The mould for the bastion in my Star Fort finally collapsed so I have been rebuilding the master. This has given me the opportunity to add some extra detailing: 1. I have lowered slightly the overall height of the banks, so figures can now see over. 2. I have beefed up the sloped walls and made them slightly more irregular. 3. I have added extra logs around the gun ports. 4. I have added more wood grain detail to all the planking. Hopefully you can see some of this in the attached pictures. First new castings tonight, wish me luck!
A couple of WIP pictures showing two small defensive positions based on shell holes or craters with added sandbags. These will be in resin and part of my 20th century range. Each will take up to a 45mm diameter base – ie for a two man MG/Mortar/Sniper Team etc.
Some WIP pictures of two new masters I am working on – both for my 20th Century 28mm resin range – Artillery Emplacement and Anti-Tank position. These should be available in the new year.
The silicone mould for my Breastwork Set 1 (28mm) has finally lost the will to live and decided to fall apart! I’m not too sad considering i have cast over ninety full sets as well as various extra pieces from it. At least it has given me the opportunity to add some extra detailing – I am increasing the banking at the front and extra wood grain on the planking as you can see in the picture. I have also decided to add an extra two 90 degree angle pieces to the set as I often get asked for more of these. There may be a slight increase in price sometime in the future but for now the price will stay the same – so in effect you will get two extra pieces for free. — Products shown: Breastwork set – 28mm 1/56 scale resin.
“Collecting Ammo” Weather was bad enough this weekend to add another mini vignette to my collection, 28mm ECW/TYW artillery figures by Warlord Games and Perry Miniatures.
Finally had some time to paint a few figures for my own collection. Pike & Shotte Siege Engineers and Artillery Crew by Warlord Games. No bright colours for these fellows, I kept the colour palette simple and subdued. As it’s raining I might do a few more
Good afternoon all, well I have finally managed to do it…….it would have been quicker but my maths isn’t what it was! Took me a while to work out the angles required. Let me present the Five Pointed Star Fort (28mm): Completely cast in resin this will be available in two versions, as a complete kit and also as an conversion set for those who already have the four sided Star Fort. It’s a bit of a beast measuring in at apx 30″ (660mm) diameter. Additional information and prices can be found on my website here: http://www.paulsmodellingworkshop.com/model/five-pointed-star-fort-28mm/ Now to work on the 15mm version……..
This is a first for me in resin – 15mm or 1/100 scale models. Just finished painting these test castings today and I’m very happy with they way they turned out. I feel I have managed to keep the same level of detail in these as with my 28mm range – see what you think. So far I have; Ravelin, Lunette, Breastworks, Artillery Earthworks I will be adding to the range with a Gun Bastion & Star Fort. Should have full details and prices of these listed on my Website at the weekend. Here are the some pictures of the painted castings.

I have been meaning to share these pics for a while now. From a customer of mine Sean Gage who produced this wonderful diorama. I shall let him explain it in his own words: “If you remember I bought some of your shell craters not so long ago and promised some photos when the diorama was finished. It represents a section of the Cambrai battlefield and features 2 MKIV tanks – male & female (the latter with a fascine) approaching the wire belt. The fascine was made using the bristles cut from a cheap stiff carpet brush. The un-ditching beams were also scratch built using various styrene components and Milliput. For general weathering including your craters I used the Mr Hobby weatheriing “pencils” which were very effective and I think were better in this situation than washes. I used three of your craters and decided that they should be “old” partly filled with black mud. I’m very pleased with your products – so many thanks..” No, thank you Sean! Very inspiring!
Fantastic set-up and battle report by Chris Johnson, shared here with his permission. Nice use of one of my Star Forts (Fort Wright) with naval guns. First posted on Tabletop Wargames Network.

Hello everyone! The latest edition to my 28mm resin Field Defence range – Artillery Earthworks.

Lunette – literally ‘little moon’ In military terms a half moon shaped defensive position. A few shots of the masters in 28mm, 20mm and 15mm versions. I have used dowells to represent logs in the three scales and have added the wood grain to each one – not so easy for the 15mm version!
Masters of the new Breatwork set, Ravelin and Lunette scaled for 1/72 (20mm) figures. I am working on the Gun Bastion and Star Fort. After these I will start on the masters for the 1/100 (15mm) versions. I will probably add the Lunette to the current 1/56 (28mm) range as well.
Hi everyone – a couple of bits of news: 1.
