So I got both my 28mm Spanish Fort and Pirate sloop into the same game; the After Action Report is here link

Is the title for this thread written in code…?

Loved the report, loved the sloop even better. Can't wait for mine to arrive.

288 mm irate miniatures sound ominous!

Sorry about the tile guys….I am a better modeler than typist……288mm figures would be cool but they would require a bigger table, and I certainly wouldn't want them to become Irate!!!

I think you did a great job on the fort, but I have a couple questions. Where is the entrance and what does it look like? Years ago I saw a pirate fort in a hobby magazine (can't remember which one… it's been a couple decades) and entrance was done by the fort garrison throwing a rope ladder over the side. Is that the case here?

A great big thanks to whoever it was that saved my title :)

War in 15mm entry was gained via one of the gun embrasures, As far as I have been able to determine it is not known with certainty if it was a rope ladder or something more substantial. I am sure there was a gantry of some sort used to lift the cannon barrels up onto the platform but I don't know if it was temporary or left to move supplies.

That looks like a beautiful representation of Ft. Matanzas near St. Augustine.

The entrance would have been on the right wall embrasure.

It is as near an exact model as I can make it, many rebuilds over the Fort's long lifetime have left a lot of questions as to the details but it is based on the best modern archaeology. 1/4 inch to the foot

Perhaps if you click on the images they will get bigger – did for me.

A little bigger but not much.
