Mark and I had another good day of preparation on the weekend. We moved the table to make the ’T’ (described previously) and cut, sanded, painted and flocked the remainder of ridge-sections that are needed for our simplified terrain. They were still wet in the early arvo', so we decided to call it a day, let them dry properly and then do the rest of the terrain when we all catch up in a couple of weeks.
Each foam board is 1 200 mm long. The square ones are 1 200 mm wide, while the rectangular ones are 800 mm wide. The sections of the ridges are 'plonked' down so that they will dry. Some buildings, woods and orchard representing Hougoumont are more or less in the correct position as is the building representing La Haie Sainte further over and those representing Plancenoit at the right-rear.
Next steps: clean the bits of foam off from the boards, lay out the ridges, roads and buildings and then put some troops on the table--yippee!
