Star Fort

Everybody needs a “Star Fort” for his minis: I found this for free at the Mondorfer Bastelbogen site. It is the Festung Pfaffenmütz, built on the Rhine by the Dutch in 1622 during the Thirty Years War and besieged and conquered by the Spanish in 1629. It doesn’t exist anymore, its trace lost in the whirlwind of Revolutionary Wars.

It is an easy model to build: I simply flocked the glacis to give some uniformity with my terrain and with the regimental bases. In the future I plan to add some ravelin and maybe an hornwerk. No idea how to use it in my wargame, but I felt that my collection wouldn’t be complete without a fort…
