This series complements the Langton Napoleonic Naval range. It is based on the harbor and city of Toulon, France, 1793, at the time of the siege. Some are modeled after actual buildings in Toulon while others are generic in design. Their style is appropriate to the 18th/19th century and so could be used in a variety of settings.
** Ravelins were located beyond the city wall. Their initial function was as a fortification, however, if and when overrun, defenders could fall back and fire down into the ravelin from the wall above. The triangular shape of the ravelin would force a wave of attackers to divide before attaining the city wall.
