Thanks Bob. Maybe the half a dozen Dark Age figures,
which I will get to you, could storm it when you've painted them?
 lol lol lol

Today we have the gate. I have re-enforced it to make it
look a bit beefier. The tower to go above the gate is shown,
but not yet fixed in place.

Hold on just a cotton pickin minute!
Is that the same guy who said it was going to be 'Skirmish'
& then went ahead & raised ARMIES, hundreds of figures?
All very pretty by the way. ??? ??? ???
I do believe he has a VERY nice Dark Age defence line,
made by one of his mates wasn't it? (OK it was me) :D

Anyway, back to the TINY SKIRMISH fort.
Today some support pillars added to the gate,
then a start made on a log retaining wall for
the walkway.
The test seemed OK, so now to cut up several hundred
matches. :-[

You'll have to attack then, there is no way a Pz II
(i.e. King Tiger/Maus/Ratte would fit through the gate. lol

Scroll up a bit, honest there are pictures of the gate.
I admit the 'tower' to go over that gate ain't attached yet,
but the gate/gateway IS there, honest. ;D ;D ;D
