The idea of an idea for summer

Although the Duchy has been beset by 50 mph winds today I popped out after a little gardening to set up a wee idea I have had brewing after finding this picture and locating information about 18th century Switzerland and her lake borne galley fleets.
Now a try of my 28mm Vauban stuff ( bought around 1986?) with 40mm Prince August as garrison-
All one needs to add are some buildings inside to represent the town...
Another view-
Maybe even a lake and galleys on it- less sure about this bit...

We shall see.What do you think?

  4. Great looking fortifications. And extensive enough that the 40mm PA's look just fine manning the ramparts.

    Swiss galleys, that's a completely new one on me. I look forward to more.
