Fun with foam
I started building up the works between the guns rather like the hills between the positions at Fort Fisher. Since I have three gun positiions, the left flank will have a hill attached and the right will have a small hill section that can be set next to one, two or three sections of the gun positions.
The transition between two sections is formed of two layers of the pink foam, and will be faced with card cut to an exact profile. This will allow the sections to be placed next to each other in random order with a smooth transition from one to the next. The foam here has been rough cut with a utility knife and hot glued in place. Once the hills have been "bulked-out" in foam I will take my hot-wire cutter to do the basic contours, followed by a 'surform' tool and some filler.
