Designing the canals

2019-03-15 by David

Right in the middle of designing the samurai farm set and pond set (and some necrontyr stuff!), I've taken a quick detour into this small set of canal sections too! Oops!!

 

My excuse is that people kept asking about a river set, now that the samurai bridges have been released.

Based on the castle walls set, these are lowered to 30mm (rather than the 75mm for the castle walls), and comprises of central 120mm x 120mm sections, then much smaller edge sections ... only 40mm deep. Plus corners etc. This gives a little more flexibility for those wanting to vary their layouts.





After some more thought, I decided to re-work the design for the dock steps (compare this pic to an earlier work-in-progress pic further above), so they could pull double duty as steps for anybody wanting to use these as low hills, without any water nearby.



 

The last part of the canals set will be this small punt boat, as found even in present-day in Yanagawa city (about an hour's drive from here) - often called the Venice of Japan*!!

 

*But without the romance, or gelato!
