Ok now THIS is important. Nice work but here's the deal:

As I have said before, when doing terrain one cannot actually do the terrain in the same scale as the figures because of the time/space dilemma. One actually has to make terrain, especially forts and buildings, SMALLER than the figures in order to realistically fit on the gaming table; otherwise, the large item like a fort will occupy WAY too much space. Unless you are fighting 1 man = 1 man stuff, these kinds of models have to be made REPRESENTATIVE of the actual item; they must be like about 18mm for 1/72 size figures. Just my view, but tests show the results. Consider: the corner platform of a star fort should accommodate… how many actual guys and actual cannon? If 100 men or more in reality, then in order to represent that accordingly… naaa never mind. Anyway, you get the idea.
