Very nice, I like this very much. Thanks for sharing.

During the English Civil War, this type of fortification was called a sconce. A good example is the Queen's Sconce in Newark.

What scale is this?

Eleve de Vauban, 15mm, I built specifically to suit the Tercio rules that we are using for this campaign's larger actions

An excellent piece. I am very envious of your skills with both terrain and campaigns. Your TYW Imagine world is brilliant.

Thanks everybody for the kind words

Shagnasty, I'm simply a craftsman that apes the products of real soldiers, as far as the campaign goes that is mostly the result of being a frustrated writer. It is sort of like "reality wargaming" in that I set the scene but never know quite how the actors will carry the story forward. The players (who rarely play the same general game-to-game) are simply told what the general on the ground would know and we see where that takes us. I am in the role almost akin to a Dungeon-Master in D&D. I must admit that I rather enjoy being the only one with all the information

Great model, Anton! Looks very good, realistic and likely for the late 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. I've seen earthworks like that depicted in old engravings and paintings. I believe several of these illustrations were associated with the 80 Years War. Eleve de Vauban, interesting that it is called a sconce. I looked it up, "Sconce – noun A small defensive earthwork or fort.
