On the cheap with scraps I had laying around. Enjoy!

Nice trading post!! I can hear the Jungle Drums in the distant.

Very nice. If you feel ambitious, you could actually make it a Tembe, just build another square structure a few inches larger around it.

Very cool project !

How in the WORLD did those defenders move those giant crates to block the gateway ? I didn't see a forklift.

chicklewis, a golden gorilla with a ring on one finger came to the compound, shoved the crates in place, then jumped over the walls. About the time he disappeared into the jungle, Congo Bill stopped making all those strange noises. (He gets these attacks every now and then.)

And all those who get the reference can call themselves real comics fans.

I'd be very happy to have made that!

I was going to say they used the magic power of teamwork, but I like that answer much better!

Thanks for the compliments, mud / Adobe buildings are some of the easiest to make and most useful terrain features.
