Started on a heliograph station to back up the semaphore and telegraph  lol

It's going to have a large set of mirrors as the intention is for it to signal any aether ships in low orbit. Debating whether to give it it's own light source or not  :?

It's not got a base like the semahpore station as it will make for a good objective in the desert. I'll have to finish off the small mesa that they can both sit on.

Thanks chaps  :)

Yeah, I'll be keeping the heliograph separate so the tower can used for other stuff  :)

Already got one  ;)

It's just a weak excuse to make something else, as if I didn't have enough to make for this bloody project anyway  lol

Finished the tower and will start on the heliograph soon.

It looks like a Bradford Tardis  :D I like that Mars has that Industrial red brick Victorian look so the colonists will feel at home. 
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

The red is just fortunate happenstance with the materials at hand  ;)

Very cool! I particularly like the stone coursing to the base.
