Such a long time since my last post! No, this blog is not going under or anything – the combination of home renovations, Emmi moving in and a busy time at work have simply meant that I haven’t had the time (or space) for anything miniatures-related. All this is slowly changing, however, so I hope to have the blog running/walking/lurching again soon.

Spanish fort in 28mm

At the risk of sounding like a Slug Industries shill, there’s another sweet Kickstarter going on at the moment. It’s for an 18th century Spanish fort, based on Fort Matanzas. As you can imagine, I couldn’t really miss out on it, so I went in for both the fort and a gun battery. Sure, I already have one fort – which I’ve yet to show by the way – but who’s counting. The combination of these three will allow me to build a fairly formidable fortified town. Maybe throw in a few ships and I see a coastal assault scenario or six in that.

Have a look at some more photos and throw some money around!

I’m actually writing this post on a train from Dublin to Cork, as I’m on a conference trip. I cleverly picked a conference that’s near casa sho3box, and I’m looking forward to a couple of days of geeky hijinks. I’m transporting a Playmobil ship to him, I kid you not.



  1. Nobody who personally knows me would be surprised at Playmobil smuggling in my name.

    It will be a piratical weekend.

  2. Good to hear from you Mikko! No, I am not surprised at you smuggling a playmobil ship to sho3box… not one little bit. So hey, good news dude – you remember that Upstream Games ‘zombie-monkey-on-globe’ mini that you liked? Well I ordered some more kit from Upstream, and they very kindly chucked one in the order, all special for you πŸ™‚ I just need some postal details and I’ll send it to you, or I can hand it over in person if you’re heading to BOYL, or planning a trip to London?

    • Brilliant, thanks so much! I’ll email you my details, as no BOYL or London for me until next Salute πŸ™‚

      • Got it – shame we won’t have the opportunity to meet mate, but I’ll get that monkey in the post πŸ™‚

  3. Hey hey good to see you back. The fort looks good! Can’t wait to see all your gear

  4. Welcome back, Mikko.

    • Thanks! It’s good to be back!

  5. […] did get in on some Kickstarters and was happy with all of them! I got a Spanish fort from Slug Industries, some lovely ruins from Fenris Games and some samurai animals from Bad Squiddo’s […]
