[Portuguese in India] Goa 1510 WIP (Upd 5th August)
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:47:22 PM »
Hi !

The beginning of my Goa , circa 1510 , at the time of the arrival of Afonso de Albuquerque

It's a very fascinating project for me , but it will take years to complete !

(These buildings are 10 per cent of the total of fortifications i will build , and a fort (Panaji) and a fortified ford (Pas de Banastri) and the city of Goa with 4 meters of walls (6 towers , 3 fortified gates and 2 great towers) some houses , the port with a redoubt , the Adil Shâh Palace , a Mosquee , and barracks for troups , horses and elephants , and out of the city some rural houses , a Hindouist temple in ruins (Ganesh dedicated) and some ships !)

But the number of minies will be relatively not hight (The Portuguese are not numerous)

It' a very complex and rich project , i will give you some details later !

Note that these buildings are not finished , i have to coat them with air dying clay , sand down and of course paint them !















To be continued ...

Well, I guess I can give you a nearly unique wow.  I just posted some photos in my Tartar Wall thread on the colonial page here on LAF - it is a full 12' long but in 15 mm and not nearly so elaborate as yours.  So, I can really appreciate how arduous an undertaking you've set out upon.  Well done.  I shall peak in from time to time.

What range(s) are you planning to use for the Portuguese ?  The date is still a little early for morions (most helmets would be examples of sallets or kettle hats).

Exact but i have no really choice : Foundry Conquistadores , Eureka Portuguese (and some spanish).

For the Foundry it seems OK they have no morions , for the Eureka Portuguese a lot have hats or are bareheads others have morion , i thinks i will not use those with morions , or change the heads ...
