I’ve been working to build a network of fortifications to defend my fantasy harbor. This is a centrally placed battery that occurs at the end of a mole which divides the bay into two harbors; an inner and an outer. The last rendition of this post was a simple tower, meant to look run down with a field piece for artillery.

More images here.

This newer version, recently completed, is a much different structure. The tower is intended to have been a much older structure than the gun wall. The battery was added some time after the tower was built by a conquering nation, whose victory was possible due to the lacking in the original structure. I angled the wall in an attempt to make the structure look more up to date, but I’m not sure it works the way I wanted it to.

Thanks! All three of the black hats pictures were hand made from card stock (recycled cereal boxes). I customize a lot of my figures to make sailors and officers with hats like that and torso designs. I'm still trying to figure out how to make a descent bi-corner from card stock though. I've though about posting them here but I figured they be sent over to the mini fig customization forum anyway.

Well if you ever do post up how to make them (which would be awesome  :pir_laugh2: ) could you send me a message so I won't miss out as I never think to check the custom forum, they look really good I am impressed.

Ask and Ye shall receive.

Instructions are in the descriptions

If you choose to view the album as a slide show, some of the text will be unclear. I do not know the cause of this. It's likely best to view the images individually.
