Wow! That Looks impressive!
Considering itīs made from dental plaster, roughly how much will it weigh when finished?

Dang, that's going to be a great looking (and very heavy) model when you get through.

Thanks all!

In terms of weight, don't know yet … still very manageable at the moment, but expecting it to be heavy when finished.

The unforeseen perils of miniature wargaming … heavy models, wire pikes, thrown dice … :-)

Put out a Perry Miniatures ACW figure so you can
get an idea of the scale …

looks great! I've also used HA blocks for my LOTR terrain and they do look the part, but not in the scale that you are doing.

how ever do you cast so many blocks so fast? I found that was the most tedious part; casting enough blocks in order to have enough to build. : )

Lol, timing is everything? ;-) Kidding … I don't know, it does help that the dental plaster sets in 20 mins.

How is this project coming along? I'm thinking that there is a fair chance that you've completed it by now.
