The final pledges have gone out, so you should all have them by the very latest next week. I hope the approach of Christmas doesn't delay them. Thanks to everyone... Read more
It's the fort which counts.
this is the pentultimate update, "Hurrah!" I hear you cry, but I also hear you whispering amongst yourselves "About bleedin' time too!". So feast your eyes on the... Read more
The Wind's Agin Us Cap'ain
Rather obviously, as it's Oct 31st, I'll not be making the October delivery dates for backers who also ordered wall sections. I've tried but failed so my humble apologies to... Read more
Fort for the day
One backer has already got his fort on the table for some games, and very nice it looks too. All the rewards which didn't include wall sections have been shipped... Read more
Booty off Port Beam Cap'n.
Great strides have been made since the last update. First wall sections cast, and the join isn't too bad. I did over sand the one on the right but we'll... Read more
Three Sheets to the Wind
I've been a little quiet on the update front as I've been concentrating on getting on with it, and I much prefer doing something than talking about it. The heatwave... Read more
Work In Progress #9
The cash for materials should drop into my hands by this time next week. Meanwhile I've been working away. First cast of the planking for the battery, which whites out... Read more
The pledge surveys will go out in the next couple of days, once they're all in I can calculate the total amount of resin needed and order that up, although... Read more

Thanks to everyone for their support. I hope you enjoy hanging your miscreant miniatures. ;)
Work In Progress #8

Unfortunately I... Read more
Work In Progress #7
The battery is finished, even if it did take a little longer than expected due to more tidying. Sealed it with a coat of primer and it gives a better... Read more
Work In Progress #6
Today has mainly been filling, sand, filling some more and sanding some more, etc, etc. Here's the battery before it's final pass. It should go into rubber early tomorrow, and... Read more
Work In Progress #5
The curved brickline is complete and all of the whole stones inside and out are laid. Next will be the partial stones, the texture on the floor and the concrete... Read more
Work In Progress #4
More stone work onto the battery today, including most of the tricky interior one, and added the back wall. This is very close to being finished.
Work In Progress #3
Not much visible progress on the battery, today has been more about filling, sanding, and then filling and sanding some more so the walls are good and square for cladding... Read more
Work In Progress #2
Started on the higher part of the battery, gloriously messy but quite slow while waiting for materials to cure or dry. The back wall is left off for now to... Read more
Work In Progress #1
I started on the production Gun Battery today, with a few amendments to the prototype which I consider vital. Mainly I'm making the walls the same thickness as those on... Read more
Fourth Stretch Goal Unlocked
Thanks everyone. I'm wondering if it might be worth having a new stretch goal for £2000, perhaps a freebie to say thanks to you all? What do you think?
Thanks to everyone for your support, it's appreciated more than I can adequately express - Thanks!
Sure it wasn't a massive target but nonetheless it gives the project life. Come... Read more
