Welcome to "Adventures in Lead", a blog dedicated to the hobby of miniature wargaming. The figures and terrain on this site are mainly for a campaign set in exotic "Indostan", a distant land bearing remarkable similarities to 18th century India during the Seven Years War. Bits and pieces from other projects may pop up here as well from time to time, including colonials, gladiators, pirates, dinosaur-hunting and even some RPG'ing.
The actual campaign journal and after action reports for the Indostan campaign can be found on their own blog - "Indostan: The Jewel in the Crown", the link to which is found by clicking the small image below-left.

WIP - The Arena Part 5

I've finished adding the sand to the hexes, only leaving spaces where the gateways are to be placed. This was a pretty time consuming job, individually applying glue to each hex, sprinkling with sand and then getting rid of the excess, over and over and over again. (Click images to enlarge)

The hex grid was then permanently glued into place and heavily weighted to ensure it would stay flat and level. I filled over the screw heads and filled some of the larger gaps at the base of the wall with Pollyfilla. Finally I attached the first of the gateways in place. It is really starting to look like an arena now.
The Announcing Gate in place.

  1. As you stated, that does look like a very time-consuming project. Glad to see you finished it. Dean
