    Default Defences of Bermuda.

    Just picked up this new book from Amazon. It will prove an asset to any who like me are building their own fortifications.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I was in these fortifications several times during the 1970's -- the walls were VERY thick stone -- I remember a sort of "catacombs" -- a labyrinthine warren of tunnels -- running throughout beneath the works. I remember it being cool down there with an occasional rat sighting....

    Was there in '77. Fantastic place. St George being the historical bit and very enjoyable. Orson Wells did Macbeth there.

    We were stationed at Warwick Camp just off South Rd.

    Well we are certainly going to have a yarn or two over a drop on that account Neil.

    If you did not want to show it, Neil, why mention it?

    Strange how things go.
    Despite the exceptional pictures in this book, with my getting involved with the Valdivia project and its four forts I have not used a single one of these as a model yet.

    Painting terrain is fairly straight forward until you come to the shading. Basically you can't beat going out and looking at the landscape for yourself. I have had many a happy hour photographing rocky outcrops in the Lake District, Cliff faces on thr Jurassic coast in Dorset, or the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. That together with the fact that the further away the bluer a landscape gets until the far distance gets a dark purple and you can't go far wrong. Also try not to over detail distant objects.
