The fledgling local Polish forces have been patiently awaiting some ADCs to assist the “top brass”. And two dashing Polish ADCs have been patiently awaiting their mounts to be suitably prepared. Finally everyones patient awaiting has paid off. von Peter himself proudly presents said gentlemen …
Figures from Front Rank Figurines. Pigmentation of the men by Nigel Fun-nell. Horse pigmenting and basing can be blamed on von Peter himself.
Anyone up for a Vauban Fort
von Peter himself is a sucker for this sort of thing. “This sort of thing” being grandiose terrain pieces and in this specific case it refers to the Vauban Fort 2 from More Terrain. This time it is the fault of Simon Miller and his BigRedBatCave blog – in particular the entry Going full Vauban – for signalling the existence of the piece … or rather pieces. Artillery fortresses have a particular fascination for von Peter himself perhaps heightened by his interest in the Seven Years War and earlier “squabbles”

The fort comes pre-painted with a choice of two colours. Pictured above is the “beige” version but it can also be had in grey …
The fort’s dimensions are 70 * 70 * 15cm and while not insignificant von Peter worries whether it is big enough to accommodate his based figures. Hopefully the BigRedBat will eventually post some pictures of a garrisoned fort to help gage the practicality of the piece.
The fort comes fully painted for the not insignificant sum of 195.00 € … and don’t forget the shipping. A tricky figure to get past the good Fraulien von Peter herself! 😃
All images are clickable for that larger and clearer view beloved by some.
Until we meet again …
