Castle and Town Walls.

I have been on the lookout for a cheap method of acquiring some castle/town walls for the 28mm Wars of the Roses and English Civil War projects. I think I have solved that problem.

Debenhams were offering this Superplay Castle for £14 on their website, it looked about the right size for 28mm so I took a punt. All the pieces snap together and will allow me to build a number of different configurations on the table. It will of course require some painting and weathering, but I think it looks brilliant.


The box it comes in.


The instruction leaflet.


Lots of pieces to make the towers.


Wall sections and of course the keep.


Some 28mm Wars of the Roses troops placed for sense of scale.


Even the gateway with its drawbridge is a perfect fit for 28mm.

I am really pleased with this purchase, yes it is very basic and will not be to everyone's taste, but at the price I paid, then it will do me just fine.
