These two views are looking South towards the Legations and the Tartar Wall. The first picture is from the East side and the second is from the West. In the first picture you can see Chinese houses in the foreground and along the left edge of the table. In the center top of the picture is the Fu, an area owned by Prince Su Wang and was allowed to be used in the defense of the legations after Prince Su Wang departed. It was also one of the most contested areas of the Legation defense. Off to the top right of the first picture is a building I made to represent the Hanlin Academy.
In the second picture you are looking almost straight on to the Academy. You can also see a bit more of the Fu than in the first picture.
Here we see a closeup of the British compound. At this time it has not been detailed but the main buildings are present. From left to right are the student quarters, the legation building and residence and then some stables and out houses. The distinctive entrance was created out of pieces of solid wood, I trimmed it with doll house moldings and added a decorative piece over the gates. The gates are made from some plastic material secured from a hobby shop specializing in doll house materials.
This scene shows the Southwest area of the Legations. To the right is the Tartar Wall and the ramp to its top. Then going to the left are the American Legation, the Russian Legation and the South wall of the British Legation. Across the canal can be seen the back of the German Legation, the Bank of Peking, the Spanish Legation, the French Legation and the Japanese Legation.
Here we see the same area but from the East looking West.
This picture shows the Fu. I have not completed this yet and I have more detail to add. As a note the globe like trees were acquired at Micheal's Crafts. They were originally intended to be place card holders for bridal showers. I have removed a small clip that was to be used to hold the name card.
Here is a picture of two of the 25 barricades I have made for the Legation forces to use. These were made from thin foam core with a brick pattern glued on. I found the pattern for free on line and scaled it down to this size. The barrels are again from the craft store and come in many sizes. These are the smallest size and work very well for 25mm games. I have stained them and then painted the iron bands in an appropriate color. The boxes are small solid wood cubes, again available at the craft store, and I drew lines on them to represent boards. These were also stained and sealed. All were glued to a piece of plastic and the covered with a gesso mixture and colored with acrylic paint.
thank you for taking the time and interest in this project.
