|A distinctly "Oriental" aperture.|
I have been doing a bit of research during the evenings and decided to work a couple of fresh ideas into "Fort Kalypso". Firstly, the walkway battlements are getting a re-do. I have decided to model these with "Indian" apertures instead of the "Fauxban" gun ports. I have used a prototype from Fort Golkonda as inspiration and the cannon ports will be reworked later today.

|A couple of Tories and a Continental Marine.|
They have some interesting "Slouch Hat" wearers in the American Revolution range. The Continental Marine and Provincial Infantry are contenders. I favour the latter for their natty plumes but the webbing for the British backpack is a real turn-off. To me it makes them look, well, too British! Perhaps someone can tell me if there were similar items in service with other States' armies during this period? If there was precedent I would almost certainly go for the Tories as they look so good! Also, they sport a bayonet and it is well known that "Johnny Native" is always scared off by cold steel! Apparently "They don't like it up 'em".
I will get some more pictures of the Fort posted ASAP.
