Depends what sort of thing you want. I've seen a list of where various Lunar units are in Sartar. While a few places have complete regiments most places have a few companies and I suspect there are odd squads in some of the more remote places.

Fortifications are going to vary depending on what's already there and the particular troops involved. Tarshite's are going to construct different forts than Dara Happens. As a default I'd probably go with something in the style of a Roman marching fort - a wooden pallisade on an earth mound surrounded by a ditch. In more important places the pallisade would have been replaced by stone walls.
