Constructing Adelheim, Part IX -- Fit test

Along the wall

Toward the walls; gate and bridges mockups in place
Since the weather is holding fair today, Norman and I decided that it was time to lay out the pieces we intend to use in a fit test.  The two pictures above give an idea of what the completed fortress (at least the Historicon version of it; we've got additional pieces not being used) might look like.

Norman takes a closeup of a sample sap we laid out. Yes, the sap head is enfiladed by the left face of the ravelin...

The Wicker Man surveys the scene.
I'm encouraged.  Now it's time to start in on painting the stonework, and we're headed back to the home improvement store for another half-gatehouse section.


  1. Looks fantastic - I look forward to seeing it in action.

  2. Wow, that's great, It looks to be a fair size too!!

  3. Looks really cool!
    I grew up in a vauban town (Landau/Germany), I like your project :)


  4. Looks really amazing - great work
