Hello everyone,
I am preparing a game kit to represent the siege of Havana in 1762.
Now, they have informed me that are finishing the fortifications and I will now start making the city of Havana with its walls. Of course I'll have to make a representation because of size, to make it playable. I will make a modular field to be stored and transported without difficulty.
The idea is to commercialize this product for Sail of Glory game. I can not put links to commercial sites (policy of forum) but I will put pictures of the progress of the project. If you are interested to know more about this project contact me.

I also am grateful for my lack of experience in the game Sail of Glory, some recommendation when sizing the game. As well as rules and ideas to make amphibious landings carried out by the British.

I hope you like this project.

Best regards,

I love it! You'll be doing the other two fortresses on the west side of the harbour? Do you have any idea of when this will be available?

That's great. How large is it?

Muerto: it will soon make two forts for a scenario of Cartagena de India (Vauban style fortress), but they are the same as those of Havana.
The idea is to offer the playing kit and also offer the parts separately.
Right now they are designing the forts, I guess in a couple of weeks will be ready for production.

I think your timing is very good: the new Galleys and Galleons rules from our esteemed Harry here includes fortresses, and there are so few on the market.

Will the set include a cathedral?

Havana will have a Cathedral

1/1200? or Sails of Glory 1/1000? Close enough for either I would think. Beautiful work!

Thank you. This fort can be used both 1/1200…1/1000

Hello everyone, today I've finally received the Morro Castle. The fort is gorgeous!
Here some pictures where you can see the strength in detail (unpainted, as supplied) and some comparative photos with Sail of Glory ships. I also added some pictures where you can see the effect of the fort on a promontory (more real than at ground level).
I hope you like it
