[COR - FB] Establishment of Wullham

Recommended Posts

After a quite painless voyage from Elizabethville, Captain Jonathan Brickleton arrives on the newly named island Panarium (Island 4 in the New Haven Sea) to establish a new settlement for the Crown of Corrington. Claimed by Corrington, Panarium is the most northerly of the New Haven Sea islands at this longitude. The island is exposed to harsh northerly winds that have left most of the island devoid of trees. Instead, the hilly landscape is dominated by lush grassland and low shrubs. The winds bring plenty of rain but also lower the temperature significantly compared to the more tropical climate of neighboring islands. Rocky outcrops dot the grassy hillsides and add pops of color with bright lichen growth. A unique lavender-colored mineral appears in the lighter grey rocks found nearby.

Along with his mixed company of 26th Foot and 18th Hussars, Brickleton is joined by a few dozen adventurous pioneers from Elizabethville who will help found the new settlement, which he names Wullham. Upon first inspection, the small sheltered valleys that surround the coastal location he has chosen for the new settlement appear to be quite fertile and will likely be ideal for grain crops. The few sheep they have brought with them appear to enjoy the terrain and Brickleton expects them to thrive.

Rather than use the few trees on the island for firewood, Brickleton sends a small group out to cut some peat for their fires.

They then begin setting up a makeshift camp at what will become the settlement of Wullham.

Nice scenario from the arrival on the island. I like the beach and the minifigures. The sheep are a fun idea.

Excellent landing scene - the buckets and chests are perfect, and I love those little rock outcroppings too :thumbup:  Great color-scheme as well - definitely impressed by how well that water works! :pir-sweet:
