How to build a castle for siegecentauro enano 12-24-2009



Hello friends, several years ago I promised myself to build a castle sieges and finally have the time and materials needed to build it.

I wanted to fulfill three requirements:
- First and foremost, I had to be practical when playing the sieges
- Second it was to be resistant
- Third that was attractive

After thinking for a long time decided to build it in three sections, main gate and two sections of wall, so could easily save.

Mentally he planned to reassemble the pieces so I decided to work.

Very cool, but I think I'll stick to the toy castles I had as a kid.  I eagerly await to see a finished pic.

Sorry, I'm not with you: is the first pic the finished castle and then we have the WIPs?
If so the result is pretty good.
Nice idea with the railways stuff.....

I went halfers on the Warhammer fortress with a mate. Doesnt seem as expensive when your only paying for half of it. We bought an extra wall section & pair of towers of vulture bay, and now we have about 6 or 7 feet worth of castle.

just need to get round to playing a seige game with it now!
btw... are there rules for seiges anymore?

I built it with empire decoration, the empire is my favorite army
But you can adapt to almost any army changing the decoration of the castle

I was very lucky that I was given many of the materials so that only cost me 14 € Big Grin. I use the rules of the sixth, not know if there are any additional.

Impressive.  The building for the inside of the wall is nicely executed, and the gatehouse looks like a regt of knights will be able to sally forth to repel the beseigers.

I think the council of sorcerers needs to look in on these two delinquents.

Looks very cool this castle wall! Takes Hat off

I would like to know if this model above is the finished one or will you also build side walls?

And what about inner fortifications like a donjon?

I'm eager to see more pics of your wip!

RE: How to build a castle for siegecentauro enano 01-07-2010

I regret to report that more than a week ago I have problems with my internet line so today I decided to hire a different line, make more progress when I can.

ZANKO-  the castle is finished, I can only build a siege tower ladders and battering ram,

my friends like to put the castle into one line, like a great wall, this allows us to storm the castle for several players

I do not understand the second question, sorry


Takes Hat offTakes Hat off greetings to all hope to be back as soon as possible .

My question was: Will you build some more houses or a keep (donjon) behind the great wall?

Zanko
The two sections of wall are houses in the rear Cheers!.
Central section has walls on both sides.

Starting to build the towers


The upper bricks are made with putty to make them resistant, the sides are drawn in polystyrene









First drawing in pencil all the items and then gluing the materials I



take a siege played tomorrow so I will use to take some pictures, especially on the back of the castle.
