Castle/Town Walls completed.

You may remember I bought a toy castle for £14 a few weeks ago. I painted the very plastic looking grey pieces black and highlighted them with grey. It has turned out very well. The pieces snap together and so are easy to store, an added bonus is that they are of course very lightweight too. Not too sure if the drawbridge will be staying, I may scratch build some wooden gates. It will make an ideal castle or walled town, there are more towers and walled sections to extend it if required.


The castle gate.


Looking down the length of the walls.


Very imposing!


Placed in one corner of the table. Extra wall and tower sections can be added to form a right angle if needed.




Lots of room on the towers and the walkways for the defending troops.


A crusader castle in the desert?

    1. Thanks Kurtus, the mat will come in very useful for desert type battles and I got a good discount on it too. The cheapo castle will do the job.
