Saratoga: Morgan, Murphy and Simon Fraser

Postby nevinsrip » Sat Aug 20, 2016 7:40 am

This is the project that I've been working on for quite some time. It's in 3 parts and this is the first piece.
I'm not finished with this yet. I have a few more things to add, but it's about 95% finished. The trees (and everything else) were scratch built by me.
Figures are conversions of Battle Honors riflemen with KMM heads. Mounted officer is by F&D.

It October 7, 1777 and the battle at Bemis heights rages on. A lone British officer is rallying his troops.
Colonel Danial Morgan realizes that the British officer is turning the battle. He orders a well know marksmen, Tim Murphy, to climb a tree and shoot that Officer. And thus it is, that General Simon Fraser is killed and the British never seem to recover.

I'm really happy with the way this is turning out. I've built several more trees to be planted on part 2 and 3.
Oh! figures painted by John Bryant as usual.

This is piece number two. The basic groundwork is almost done. Once the trees and bushes are planted this will come to life. These are riflemen firing at the edge of the woods where the British muskets can't reach.
Officers are targets here and the damage was freigthful.

Part three. This is in the beginning stages. I envisioned this as Morgan's riflemen coming through and out of the woods to join the battle. Once all three pieces are finished it will ll make sense. I hope??

Very nicely made and interesting background. The woodland colours add a different aspect to the whole diorama.
