    The Dutch really have the best forts, they have all the best forts.

    On an eternal crusade for reason, logics, catholicism and chocolate. Mostly chocolate, though.

    I can heartily recommend the Italian Wars mod by Aneirin.
    In exile, but still under the patronage of the impeccable Aikanár, alongside Aneirin. Humble patron of Cyclops, Frunk and Abdülmecid I.

    It is Brielle, no idea from which side though as I've never been there. The capture of the town by the Watergeuzen (translated as Sea Beggars in English) marked a turning point in the Eighty Years War as it was the first town under rebel control and led to a sort of chain reaction of other towns joining the side of the Dutch rebels.

    It indeed is based on the little I have seen and heard. They should really consider changing the name. Good Kreuznach describes the place so much better.

    Because I feel playful, we are having a special round dedicated to one of our respected members who should come to this thread more often. What is the exact location where this picture was taken?

    I have a feeling, that this is a miniatur model village.
    I'm no barbie doll I'm not your baby girl
    I've done ugly things and I have made mistakes
    And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
    I am rotten to my core if they're to be believed
    So what if I'm no baby bird hanging upon your every word?
    Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud

    I suppose you could call it a model village, but it's full size

    Somewhere in the UK would be my guess, given the palm trees the southwest would be the most likely region.

    It's in the UK, but not in England.
