Fantastic!  :o :o :o

I would also like to know more about the Marines. Is it a mix of manufacturers?

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.

Thanks Greg
It’s the first time I’d ever done boats ( including the Whalers at the beach ) and using the AK weathering paints so all in all I’m pleased with how they came out

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.

Marines are a mix of Foundry and Musket Miniatures in the States - formerly Trident
Guns are TA Miniatures - they are really 28mm
The fort is based on Fort McGee which is in Florida

It was an outstanding looking game Ian, and aptly next to Bill Gaskin's plantation affair. The two best looking games at Salute this year!!!!!!!!! I have some photos of your game but imagine that you took a load already. If not, let me know.

Certainly my two favourite games. Awesome stuff.
