Pathan Hill Fort for GASLIGHT Extravaganza

I finished the Pathan hill fort that will play a key roll in the GASLIGHT Extravaganza that Buck Surdu and I are running at Historicon, and wanted to share some pictures.

This is the beginning stages. I cut out the hill from some scrap pink foam board, and am trying out some different looks for the fort. At first I was going to do a square tower.

This is the finished fort. I decided to go with a round tower instead of a square one.

Here's a closer look at the entry-way detail. The two sections of scrap insulation foam I used didn't quite match up evenly, so I used this misalignment to create a nice rock crevice.

Here is a rear view into the fort, showing the tower entrance and the stairs up to the firing platforms.

Look for a full report on the game when I return from the convention next week!
