'Defensive Terrain' from MilesR - 'A Redoubt of Doubtful Merit'
For the challenge, I did build the fort and painted up a Napoleonic French Artillery battery in the 28mm scale. The figures are Perry metals and I've had them in the lead pile for at least 5 years.
Unlike a lot of gamers, I find terrain making to be one of the most enjoyable aspects of the hobby and am really grateful for Curt including some in this year's Challenge.
proxxon hot wire cutter for the job and really recommend you get one if you build a lot of terrain with foam. I cut one 12 inch x 12 inch piece and 3 1x1 inch by 12 inch long sections for the upper level - one was an extra in case I screwed up and I needed it.
Honestly, I had so much fun making this I'll probably build a few more after the Challenge. Hmmm Curt perhaps we can consider a mini two week terrain challenge during the summer???????
Just to be clear, scoring wise there is just the fort, 6 28mm artillery crewman and 2 guns.
