Really pleased with how this figure has come out.
Having mentioned pre-historic sites in Arran, que holiday photos, sorry, someone might be remotely interested.
Arran is rich in pre-historic sites, much like Orkney. In a single one half mile stretch of moor we saw 7 "Stone circles" literally within yards of each, a blustery day added to the atmosphere.
The first ones a burial circle with a nice baord telling you whats goign on.
The second another chambered grave, these are the entrance stones.
The third is a more traditional small stone crcle.
The ruined small holding perhaps of interest to anyone gamign the 45? Slap between two stone circles, an interesting place to live.
The next another small tradtional stone circle.
Another grave with stone pillars at the entrance
This stone circle is really impressive, you can just see a tourist moving away to the right giving some scale to these stones which are at least 12 feet high. These are exceptionally atmospheric on the bleak moor.
This single stone again 12 feet or so is by itself about 100 yds from the group of three, as we approached a pair of curlew landed next to it which was a special moment for me, never seen these birds before.
A quick drive up the coast brings us to Lochranza castle, the remains are a later version of the medieval keep and are 16th century, a beautiful little tower with grey seals basking in the bay.
Brodick castle has a mock up of a bronze age round house which is interesting, again you can go in and it has all the utensils of a bronze age house and oustside is a totem pole.
Lastly the giants graves down the coast is another very large chambered burial, fascinating and not far from an Iron age fort, well to me anyway! Arran is highly reomended.
Just enough time to add three skirmishers to the painted forces winging their way to the basing department, apologies the lighting is not great, I will get some better shots when they are all based up. A Foundry javelinman with head swap, a casualty with a sore neck and a Warlord slinger, again with a head swap.
First Sikh Wars Black Powder game tonight, watch this space.
