Is there anyone in the Uk ideally in Southern England who can build me a central asian fort or part of, I am seeking something for the Russian taking of Tashkent.

I also have an interest in the Russian conquest of Central Asia. I know it's a broad generalization, but, to me, the Central Asian fortifications look like slightly more ornate versions of Afghan ones. There was a thread about Afghan Hill forts in this board recently. Perhaps it can give you some leads.

I think this might be the one Nick was referring to…

They might do now to find someone to build one for me

I've done a lot of research on the topic and I'll second what Nick said.

They're not "hill forts" like the links above show. I made one a few years back and a photo of it graces the cover of my Guide to Askari Artillery, on the home page (at right)

They tend to have massively tall crenelated walls with lots of round towers. When I figure out how to make good round towers, I will make a Central Asian fort to go with all out figures.

Last year I made a Chinese version. The towers are square.

Hi Al,

Can you share photos of your Chinese fort when you get a chance? As you know, I need to build one for Tuyen Quang.

Mike at Blastwall is really good and very reasonable
