Showdown at Prairie Butte

Almost two dozen desperate gunslingers were arrayed on the outskirts of town, armed with sixguns, rifles, scatterguns and a bloodthirsty desire to kill!

Hi guys
Can anyone suggest a retailer for a 15mm fort for Pony Wars? Prefer MDF.

Wackmole908 Sep 2021 7:08 p.m. PST

really fort or Movie fort?

Wackmole908 Sep 2021 7:12 p.m. PST

paper terrain does a paper movie fort


Wargamer Blue08 Sep 2021 9:15 p.m. PST

Movie or reality? Don't mind Wackmole. I'm not into the paper terrain.

Old Glory makes a nice one

Wargamer Blue09 Sep 2021 3:31 a.m. PST

I'll check it out

JR Miniatures also makes one.

I have been eyeing that one -but can't work out if it would work with 20mm ACW as well (at a pinch).

Here is JR Miniature fort on EBAY

Thought about but I think I may make my own.

Looks like this came up on TMP in the past:

But something else, BlueMoon:
A pair of whole forts:




Also by parts:

For those who are up to printing their own:

All are the Hollywood version:

Italeri does this 1/72 timber fort.


4DJones09 Sep 2021 8:09 a.m. PST

Don't you only need the main gate and front wall of the fort? IIRC somewhere in the rules it says the players don't know how many troops are in the fort and it's main purpose is to give reinforcements access to the game board as well as offering safety to settlers etc.

Bob Hume09 Sep 2021 9:09 a.m. PST

Was gonna try to build one, but any ideas on a 6mm fort?

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP09 Sep 2021 10:00 a.m. PST

Irregular has a 6mm "wild west fort" on their site.

DyeHard09 Sep 2021 10:23 a.m. PST

As pointed out by 79th PA

For a 6mm Fort

Abot 1/3 down


Rdfraf Supporting Member of TMP09 Sep 2021 3:49 p.m. PST

You don't need the whole fort for Pony Wars, just the main gate , front walls and a couple towers for looks.

Wargamer Blue09 Sep 2021 4:53 p.m. PST

I need the whole fort. I'm a wargamer.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Some great stuff there.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP09 Sep 2021 7:39 p.m. PST

That's the spirit.

Bob Hume09 Sep 2021 8:12 p.m. PST

Ya know, I didn't even think of looking at Irregular. Getting old and forgetful. I have their homestead already. Had it for years. It looks good.

Shouldn't be too hard to make out of toothpicks, and/or bamboo skewers.

I remember as a kid making toothpick bridges and fences back in the day. Really easy to do with a little time and some white glue.

DyeHard, maybe you could combine those two forts shown in your post of 9 September and have one nice large 15mm fort, one with six buildings and 4 blockhouses and large enough to hold two 50-men companies.
