It's awesome there is so much interest this month already. Don't forget this build is running a little longer than usual into November.

I'm a few days late to the party, but I'd like to get involved. Where do I find out what we're building? Is there a link or something?

Short version: Would a church be eligible?

Long version: I've been itching to try and make a bombed out church for a while. Whilst I realize that a church isn't exactly made with defensive purposes in mind, a building that would increase your troop's resolve would be nice. Oh! It will have a bell tower, but no bell. I'm not that skilled :P and besides, the defenders needed the metal for shell casings/armor/food.

Draco, just say the belltower is a sniper's nest, some sandbags here and there, that the bombed church is the resistance's HQ, put some bits that show this and you should be g2g.

Defensive fortification are just places that have been prepared to withstand some attack and repel it, imo.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm sure I can figure out some way to make it looks like an improvised defense. I play WH Fantasy mostly, so a modernized look won't really fit in. I'm sure some partially boarded up windows or reinforced doors will do nicely. What I would really like from the church is kind of a 'small settlement's place of worship, at least before the invaders showed up' feel.

:P I just wasn't sure it would be appropriate to submit. Most of the ideas so far have been related to bunkers and bastions.

bunkers are for sissies, just go with what you want, give it your best and take lots of pictures and people (me) will like it more =p

I finished, or as far I could go. Just so little time to really sit down and make it a lot better. Plus I have a slight invasion in my work space...
