Nice work - the cog is a nice little ship, the fortifications are grand - like the lighting with that reflection in the water in particular.

That is just amazing.

Can't wait to see some action shots. Really inspired by this.

Thanks for your comments!
Forces are building up, slowly but surely....
Here is the latest addition:


As soon as I have enough attackers, defenders and civilians I will do some action shots. I initially only planned the harbour setting but I am pondering if I should build a breached wall section to present the break into the city. I have then enough houses to set up some street fighting so this project could eventually end up in three stages:
1. The Breach
2. The City
3. The Harbour

It will require more miniatures and to scratch out the city surface as well as terrain for the breach of the walls. Maybe I can finish it within this year   ;D
