a cemetery

During the urban figths in the Napoleonic era, the cimeteries (graveyards) sometimes played a distinguished role. This one is my last addition to the urban scenery for the Campaign of Leipzig

1 A view of the materials: 2mm cardboard, water-based paints, liche, sand, stones (litter cat), white and cyanoacrylate glues, wooden matchsticks and LITEPLAST paste
2 The walls and the foundatios are cut into the cardboard and then glued with white-glue,
3 The walls and gate are glued onto the surface of the cimetiere along the four pillars of the corners 
4 Some graves are added, leaving space for a least seven infantry bases, and the walls and terrain are covered with modelling paste
5 The exposed soil is covered with white glue and then sparked liberally with sand. After drying (around two hours) the excess of sand is eliminated
6 The soil is primed dark brown, whereas the walls and pilalrs are in light grey
7 The soil and foundations are covered wuth white glue and sparked with static grass
8 The crosses are made from spared plastic sprues adn placed into position with superglue and a pin
9 The pillars of the gate are made with matchsticks glued over the carboard into a prism shape
10 The iron grilles of the gate are made by inserting pins into the carboard priming in black and painting in gun-metal
11 The crosses are painted and then some decorative paint flakes and plants are added
