Hey everyone. To those in the Northeast, I hope you’re ok and you’re able to start digging out of the snow that landed on your doorstep. Here in Atlanta, we didn’t have much trouble at all. In fact, it was almost 50 degrees yesterday. *ducks the various things that are suddenly thrown at him*
Yes, well, that may be the case, but it’s also the case that it’s Monday. And seeing as it is Monday, it’s time to make your gaming tables look better.
Today’s Terrain Corner articles consist of: New American Civil War Forts from Brigade Models, Fantasy Arc Releases Bug Hunt Locations Expansion for Bug Hunt Corridors, and Pwork Wargames fantasy gaming mat: War Sands.
The first shots of the American Civil War were fired by Confederate artillery at Fort Sumter in South Carolina in 1861. The fort sits in Charleston harbour and is a five-sided brick structure.
Our new Sumter model is part of our Small Scale Scenery range – ideal for Aeronef, Land Ironclads or other 2mm or 1/1200th scale games. The main part of the fort is a single-piece resin casting, and it also has a large number of guns on the upper tier which are separate metal pieces. The model represents the fort as it was during the Civil War – nowadays the outline is the same, but in detail the fort is quite different.
To accompany Fort Sumter, we have a second, somewhat smaller and rather less significant installation from the Charleston area. Fort Palmetto is a rather grand name for what was really only a small 3-gun earthwork artillery battery.
