Having finished (finally)_ the interior detail work for my 28mm starfort I got started on the outworks. You can see the step-by-step here link

All four of them :(

Lol. But the one in the link is a functional dice tower!

It would be a wonderful accessory, but I could have just printed the garitas as well.

I am sorry, I just can't help myself…

In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",
When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a javelin,
When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,
And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat".

My son just a role in a local performance of this- so I am feeling "plucky and adventury".

COL Scott,
Thank you, that was brilliant!

I added a couple more photos (of the real thing this time) to the blog-post to answer some questions that came up from readers
