    Depending on the size of the table, you can add or remove modules.

    It is also true that this scenario has been designed to take a landing action with a naval blockade.

    I am very impressed with this set of modules Julián. Unfortunately I don't have a table large enough to house it anymore.

    Hi everyone,

    I already have available the forts of San Luis in two versions and the fort Manzanillo. If someone wants to buy part of the article painted and decorated, please, contact me.

    I will be putting in an immediate order for Fort St Louis to go with my Morro on the opposite headland.

    David, julián...you guys are brilliant. Someday i see people playing Napoleon wargames (like Waterloo) hire naval support from people playing SoG and take the outcome from that even further...

    I undercoated mine in black. Apparently we have different painting techniques. I use white for 28 mm miniatures but black for terrain and smaller scales.

    I used to undercoat in Black until my eyesight deteriorated about ten years ago. I then found that I could not pick out details anymore, so reverted to white undercoating Jonas. the only downside is that you have to do shading. The upside is that colours such as yellow and red keep their brightness.

    That is understandable.
    I usually paint white before covering it in yellow or red. The new poison free paints have less effective pigment.

    That's good news Jonas. I won't feel so bad about licking the end of mt brush to get a better point on it now then.

    I never did. I only dip the brush in the tea instead of the water cup.

    It's not just me that does that then! I can't count the number of times I've drunk paint water instead of coffee.

    I always undercoat in white, I think it keep colours truer. Then again, I always use Humbrol enamels rather than acrylics - which I never got the hang of using!!!

    That would clean the brush even when using Humbrol Enamels.

    Hello everyone, I'm back with the project Havana. I finished the village of Guanabacoa. This village was raided by British to establish a basis to begin the siege of Havana.

    I hope you like it.

    Yet another little gem in the Caribbean Julian.
    I love the old overgrown fortification, and your palm trees are shown to their best advantage in those little groves.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Thank you Rob, I cut the original palm trees to make them smaller, both the trunk and the top.

    That is absolutely amazing Julián.
    You have surpassed yourself this time shipmate.
    I hope the siege is a long one in order to get the time and money's worth that you have invested in this project.
    When I see pieces like this it always reminds me of my 25mm Ticondaroga. It took months to complete, and has been fought over only twice in eight years.
    May your work of art get more attention than that.
    Rob.

    In the future I will sell.
