Completed Sconce - Star Fort

These models are inspired after a visit to Fort Royal, Worcester and are based on a illustration of Queens Sconce in Newark in Osprey’s ‘English Civil War Fortifications 1642-51 (Volume 9 of Fortress range).  The items were completed in October last year but I'd forgotten all about them.  After a tidy up they were unearthed and painted.
