So with the nice weather I do not really want to go into the 'cave' to paint and thus I find more 'slap on the paint' type things to do while outside or upstairs in the sunlight. One of these were the 15mm 'pup' tents.

I had found obviously scrap pieces of long wood strips which had been used in home interior construction in triangular lengths. I thus cut these strips into inch long sections. While waiting between bus charters, I simply used hand held sandpaper to round off all the edges.[I previously did not do this and the results were not very realistic]. I then used a very large brush to paint the primered wood a light cream color and then a fine brush to add the shadows of the creased canvas. Some of the tents were given a black color on the ends to portray an opening.

I am debating whether to leave the tents or mount them on terrain pieces of 4 or 6 tents. Doing that, I can add more "lived-in" details which look good such as cooking pots, chairs, laundry lines, etc. However that does limit the deployment somewhat. I may do that with the 25mm versions and leave these as is.
