The Orchard - Scratch Built By Brian Buskell

Yesterday Brian dropped around and handed over his latest scratch built master piece..'The Orchard'. Built in two days of hard sweaty labour Brian produced a nice little (pre-seasoned or post plucked) orchard. The intent is to use the orchard for a our coming game for the second day at Gettysburg and Longstreets' attack on the Union 3rd Corps around the Peach Orchard. All the wood is natural twigs that Brian found in the back yard. The trees themselves are made from balls of steel wool with dried tea leaves glued on as leaves and painted green. Brian has done a wonderful job creating this fine piece of work which will look great on playing table...enjoy

Tea leaves are great, I use them for 6mm ground cover. Beautiful work on the orchard.

It does look very nice and I'm really looking forward to the pics of your up-coming Gettysburg game.
