Every army needs a base, and with pirates swarming these tropical waters, the bluecoat imperial soldiers have established themselves on a lonely rock jutting above the tides. Originally designed for stop motion filmmaking, I have built this fortress to be fully modular with removeable walls and floors.
The structure features 4 colored and textured levels, a curved wall, turrets, a flagpole, columns, openings for cannon and musket fire, and carved stone steps up to the thick wooden door.
- Inside the rocky foundation is a cellar with barrels, crates, a table, 5 sleeping bunks, weapon storage, a prisoner's cell, torches, and a ladder.
- The level on the rocky ground is accessed from below by trapdoor and above by stairway. This level features the stronghold's only entrance and 2 cannons on wheels.
- The level above contains a narrow passageway as well as a doorway into the admiral's sleeping quarters, containing a bed, map, candle, quill, goblet, and sword display.
- The multi-level roof offers a ladder, room to form ranks, and 2 360-degree swivel cannons.
Visible in the photos are a commanding admiral, an officer, and 6 bluecoats on duty complete with muskets, shakos and epaulettes. 6 more bluecoats are off duty without complete uniform in the cellar/sleeping quarters, where 6 packs are hung up ready for expeditions beyond the island in their blue boat. A pirate is held prisoner as well, waiting to be rescued by 5 of his armed comrades in a boat of their own.
