Now, it's time for the ground cover. . .

 The three Suren ladies offer a range of foodstuffs and drink to weary lead and plastic soldiers in 25-30mm, including bread, rolls, cheese, a leg of something, spirits, and various additional supplies in crates and bundles around back.

Everything now has had two coats of glossy acrylic varnish, and the three sutleresses have been glued into place on the vignette base .  Just the usual sand and Woodland Scenics groundcover to add now.  If the modelling gods smile on me this evening, I jut might have an hour or so to take care of that.  If not, then it's first thing on the agenda for tomorrow (Saturday).

Since this vignette is intended to be handled on the tabletop, durability was a consideration.  I have, therefore, resisted the urge to use heavy black thread to model the tent ropes tied to pegs in the ground on a larger base.  The more pedantic among you will just have to use your imaginations.  Hmmm.  I just can't seem to escape that word.  But then, we are operating within a semi-fictitious European realm, at least where the Grand Duchy of Stollen and the Electorate of Zichenau are concerned.  Speaking of which, I wonder what ol' Irwin-Amadeus II and Hives have been up to recently?

Here's a shot of the third partner in the concern, who has been sent to retrieve a bundle of something.  Now, I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to tangle with her.  Swindlers and the sticky-fingered in miniature beware!

These sutleresses certainly seem to be well......stocked, esp in the overhead views.

Nicely done.

I would say that the lady round the back is offering more than just lemonade! :o)
