North German Church Finished. . .

In this first photograph, you can see the newly finished church at left along with an older spired building of some type to its right along with a few mounted officers by RSM95 (ex-Pax Britannica) to provide a visual reference with regard to building dimensions.


 And here is another picture of the church.  This time taken, more or less, from the rear to show the rounded sanctuary (???), a feature that I am particularly pleased with.  Cutting the paper towel tube in half was not too difficult, but it was a pain in the neck to get the angles just right so that the five small pieces of "roof" fit together without an appreciable gaps between them.  I must have held my breath just right, because it worked the first time!


Just checking in quickly to provide two photos of the now finished North German Sankt Mariakirche.  As with many of my buildings and houses, the doors and windows are suggested rather than highly detailed renderings, but it's still apparent what they are supposed to be.  Very much in keeping with the old buildings made and used by the Charles Grant family through the years.


P.S.
That's General von Tschatschke (The Flamboyant Silesian) in the pink coat.

Looks very good, my friend. And two churches allows two towns if you need them, eh?

Nicely done!

Excellent. I'm a student of 18th C. linear warfare like any other chap, but I've never been able to explain adequately the difference between musketeers and fusiliers.

Very nice they look too.

Or one of each sort in the same town.

Thank you, Men! Oh, and the difference between musketeers and fusiliers is all in the hat. The latter wore that funny, short mitre cap (at least in the Prussian army). The former wore a sort of black skull cap with a couple of large round ears and the words Mickey Mouse, or perhaps Disney World, emblazoned across the front. Needless to say, they put the far of God into their opponents as they emerged from the smoke on the battlefields of 18th Century Europe, from East Prussia to the Rhineland. A little known fact about Frederick's infantry, true, but it's in the history books!

Best Regards,

Stokes
