European graveyard

European Graveyard

I`ve been planing this for quite a while, slowly gathering the various bits and working our "how to"
The walls are S&S, except for the front pieces with the railings, which are plastic and came out of a bag of "plastic army men" my boys had years back (now discarded) - I kept some of the "terrain bits".
The church gate is one of those laser cut mdf models/puzzles bought on Ebay
The grave markers are by Blotz Terrain, the tombs and grave are from Sgt`s Mess
The gravel path and grass are both made using model railway mats

 I couldn`t resist playing with the camera and creating some sepia/period type photos using some of my 2Dble vehicles and command unit 

Various terrain bits

Vac-u-form gun emplacement (maybe Bellona?)
Based and sanded, I added the various brush and bits, i built the ammo storage roof out of bits of corrugated iron from a pack of debris by Sgt`s Mess
 Shell hit marker
Resin piece from Frontline
 vac-u-form mortar pit (again maybe Bellona?)
 Small urban shell craters 
Made from bits of old Matchbox diorama bases 
 Large shell craters
Old Queens Hussar range (resin)
