A company of 26th Foot pass by the pickets to enter camp after patrolling the surrounding area, while a group of 18th Hussars heads out to reconnoiter Oleon positions.

Soldiers of the Elizabethville Militia and 47th Foot look on.

Impressive parade of troops and nice camp. I especially like the self-built cannon.

Looking good. I like the tents and how it feels like a real military camp. It's very alive.

Great build, looks properly military! I like the bright red accents. The tree could use a little more green.

A really lovely build. I'm getting Sharpe vibes.

Thanks! Definitely some inspiration from Sharpe and Hornblower!

Thanks! Initially tried cramming twice as many minifigs in and it just looked crowded. Reduced the number of figs and you can see the camp better but still have some activity

Thanks! I've featured the tents in some of my earlier builds, but had to make 4 additional ones to fill our the large camp scene. The base was fun to do!

I posted about the base in a tutorial if you want to see more pics.

Thanks! Added the coral colored 1x1 plates to spice up the earth tones in the base. Yeah, the tree is not normal looking, that's for sure! One thing I've learned about trees IRL is that they are super weird and many look ugly :pir-huzzah1: For a pretty build (like the Mayor's house), I would try to make the tree more symmetrical and leafed out

Just remembered that I tried putting little gold ink holders next to the tents to (maybe?) look like tent stakes. Did that come across?

Neat scene. Good job with the base and the tents look great. I love that custom cannon and the various troops.

Absolutely! They really stood out to me. Good detail.

Thanks! I thought about tying some TLG string to the tents like guy lines, but that failed miserably :pir-laugh:

An impressive display of soldiers! Like I said on flickr, I like the small accents of coral. I hadn't really noticed the brickbuilt cannon beforehand, but it looks really sweet! Awesome design there.
