Picture below shows one tent assembled and stuck onto a base, with the next template ready to cut out; the end frames have been positioned ready to be stuck onto some 2mm thick card.
After sticking the end supports onto thin card and cutting them out I painted the edges with a light brown colour - then stuck onto the tent ends. A wash of light brown was applied to the tent to tone down the colours. Then the base was painted and some static grass applied. I made up a total of 5 tents and made a fire up from some small stones and spare bits of plastic.
The viking camp ....
the tents are probably not 100% historically correct (would probably have had the tent material over the wooden A frame ends) but they look OK to me ..
