Tents and Pavilions in 28mm scale

What could be more appropriate for a blog post during summer than a post about tents and camping. :-)

Most of Sweden have had wonderful summer weather for the last month. With such weather hobby time is sparse. Some progress can be reported however with a camp of pavilions and tents in 28mm scale being finished. Our pavilions are the Large Medieval Jousting Tents in resin from Magister Militum. The smaller tents are in plastic from Renedra.

As anyone who has lived in - or even visited - a medieval or renaissance reenactment camp will know a medieval camp has a lot of ropes in it, keeping the pavilions in place. The return to your pavilion at night can become quite a challenge.. To illustrate this linnen thread were added to the models. All of the tents were mounted on mdf bases from Warbases.

Linnen thread being added to small holes drilled into the tents,
later fastened to brassrod pins at the base.

Nice working conditions up north with looong, beautiful summer evenings.
