Barren winter trees, a half-face camp, and Rangers unhorsed
The half-face camp is for an upcoming game featuring a clash between FIW Virginia Rangers and Native Americans. Again all from junk lying about. The "bark" lean-to is painted cardboard from a Corona six-pack case, twigs for the poles and sand for the earth and snow. The blankets are linen squares glued own and painted in the weaving patterns of various 18th c blankets. The small green bottle on the boulder is just a part of a plastic sprue shaped by a hobby knife, file, and pin drill.
This is intended to represent the temporary camp of a patrol or outer guard of rangers. These guarded the passes into the various settled valleys in what is today Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina.
