Very nice work  :-* :-* :-*

I have played in a few 40mm games at Historicon and they do look impressive!

Blimey , that's a masterclass . Even more stunning than 2 years ago . Brilliant figs and jaw dropping
Fortifications . They better hand first of show know , especially if the boys wear those rather fetching tight white t shirts again .
Should be a beano again.

I think as I get older I appreciate the Vino evenings more than the actual shows - itís always a pleasure to see you Robert and I look forward to receiving the deeds to my new Greek retirement home and I think youíve got a bit of a bargain there ! 😂

I understand that David Marshal built the fort and ironclad. How can I contact David to see how he built those models?
Thanks - Greg

Well he works under the business name of T M Terrain - if you Google him his contact details are there - The Ironclad I picked up half finished and I did the painting , guns and crew and super detailing - itís basically made of balsa and smoke and mirrors !

Sorry - I was so happy for a path to follow I ran too quickly - The ironclad is a wonderful gaming model. My brother is a professional model builder and those pictures are more than equal to his craft.

Superb Ian - sadly was in the States so couldn't make Salute - by a strange coincidence I visited Fort Sumter on the same day as the exhibition ! Can I sk you a couple of questions:

1. What is the main source of the figures (especially the US marines)
2. Where did you get all the wonderful guns on the fort ?
3. is the fort based on any specific one ?

Kind regards

Inspirational stuff - if you have more photos of this quality of your units please do put them up.
