Blue Moon's Dracula's Castle
« on: October 26, 2021, 03:14:21 PM »
Query for folks who own, or happened to have played in games featuring, West Wind's Dracula's Castle model:

I've long kept half an eye on the model as it is a very beautiful center piece.  However, I've only ever seen photos that only show the main gateway side.  Does it have a postern gate around back?
 
In actual play, does it make for tactically interesting skirmish games?

In light of The Silver Bayonet, I've been giving it another eyeing, but I always come back to this question.

Or, are there any STL files out there for small castles with somewhat similar styling?  In my googling, I've only come across models that are very square affairs with giant slabs of curtain walls, or else high gothic fantasy.

There is some discussion with some more images of a game being played on it here:

Now I'm of a mind to make my own.

Skrapwelder, I've come across that thread before, alas it doesn't show the back side either.  Judging from the way they've positioned it against the edge of the table is what leaves me very suspicious that there is no other entrance.
 
I love that game mat they use with it!

Thanks for the info folks.  Don't really need to see a picture.  I'm mostly interested in if you think the pieces makes for tactically interesting skirmish games.  Just the single entrance seems like a limiting factor.
