Who makes 6mm Vauban fortress sections?

Not too bothered about materials – I'll look at anything but, solid [resin, plastic, 3d printed] would probably serve best.

Thanks

Irregular sells a Vauban fortress, but I am not sure if they sell individual sections.

Levan do one link

but in 6mm they are quite big. I use an Irregular 2mm Vauban fort with balsa added at the bottom and carved to fit the slopes so that the fort doesn't have too big a footprint on the table but doesn't look that much shorter than the figures – irregularminiatures.co.uk then click on 2mm then Scenics and Accessories and look for BG164 to 167 – there is a photo further down the page.

Paper Terrain makes some 6mm stuff: link

If you're willing to go down to 2mm scale, Brigade Models also sells 1/1000 scale Vauban sections: link

This would actually be pretty easy to scratch build from balsa. Vauban walls, bastions and ravelins were (deliberately) pretty smooth and featureless. Once you rough out the shape, paint and some flocking do most of the texturing. The only hard part is staircases.

Go with the Levin one, great sculpting and detail and be sure to get the damaged sections they are fantastic models with really detailed damaged sections. I use them for both my 5mm Heroics and Ross and 8mm Adler.

And Great service from Levin


I can also recommend the Vauban Wars rules for siege warfare a really great take on siege warfare.

I was playing Vauban Wars game on Wednesday night, hence my question. As you probably know, I wrote a couple of supplements for Piquet Inc.

Leven Miniatures has been my go to for years. Mick is great to deal with. True 6mm and the fort is pretty big, though accurate. Might be a lot on the table I think.

Congrats on the blog!

I will put a plug in for the Paper Terrain model. I have built it and it works great. Once you are done it is painted too!

I made one in 1/350 scale and would be happy to make one for you, just send me the dimensions. daftrica 89 at yahoo . com

It would be free as long as it is in the Continental US, otherwise shipping would be on you

A different, larger model that I made for another TMP'er
