This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Before solely focusing on 28mm War of 1812 stuff for Fall-In, I wanted to finish up the 1/1200 scale port to be used in Napoleonic naval games. I think it came out pretty well.
This is a small port that's defended by a large fort. It might be viewed as a bit "over-board" for what in game terms is a simple objective but I think good scenery adds a great deal to a game experience.
The fort casting and all of the houses / sea wall sections are manufactured by Langton Miniatures, who also put out superb ship models.
Here's a close up of the town. I have some details to add to the dock sections - piles of naval supplies and spare masts and will get around to that in the next few weeks.
I decided to make the fort optional and have a small piece to add in for scenarios where the fort isn't really needed. This was a fun little project!
