I had the afternoon off so I set up the table and mat again and got to flocking it. First I gave it two coats of dry brushing: a pale green acrylic followed by a sand coloured acrylic. I then found a large (mostly full) can of lacquer sitting forgotten on a shelf and I started to spray and throw some of my vast quantity of home-made flock on it. Then more spray and more flock and more spray...
Eventually I was satisfied. So I let it dry.
And I saw that it was good.
So I then put the walls up again to try and work a better configuration.
You can see some of the detail of the walls here.
(P.S.~ The Rhodians ejected them with much slaughter).
I also put some ships in the port because I've been wondering if they will look in-scale in context with the city. I think they look okay. Like the ground forces, they really represent counters that, in turn, are representing actual units.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Next, I have to make the town.
