Thought I'd bring you up to date on my progress. I was at a point on the Fort that I needed to start thinking about the Long Walls that would go off on either side. I wanted them to have buttresses that mimicked the ones on the corners of the Fort. The number I would need was more than I cared to make individually, even with the jigs to streamline production. Instead, I made some masters from which I could create molds and cast multiple units in resin.

Image
These are the silicon rubber molds. One base buttress, an extension, and two capitals.

Image
This is the buttress with the large capital, to support a protruding shooting position.

Image
With the standard capital.

Image
With the extension.

Image
A short buttress, using the large capital as a base.

Image
The extension is even reversible.

Image
A whole lot of possibilities.

At this point I wanted to investigate the steps to mass-producing Bolt Throwers to place on the walls, in this case Cheiroballistras. The real ones were made of metal, so I made mine of brass. The whole procedure is explained in greater detail at http://hobbydrsgametable.blogsspot.com/

Image
Image
Image
This was my first attempt, not too bad. Unfortunately it was a litle too big for my planned wall, and more labor intensive than I liked. I knew that with some jigs, I could make them smaller and faster.

Image
The second, smaller thrower.

Image
There is a third, even-smaller version in the works.

That's all for now. The next update will show my progress planting the Fort on a terrain board. Comments and questions welcome. Don
