Castles are high stakes but also sort of the apex project of all wargaming. Biggest effort, biggest reward.
"There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is Curiosity.

There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is Vanity.

There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is Love.”

I am still alive, honest.

Full update to come soon but thought I'd share a few pics of what's been going on lately. Spot the new game.

A foam-sheet sail! What a fascinating idea!

Now that foam sheet is a spiffy innovation.  Very, very cool.

I really enjoy all your work, and I'm glad to see more.

Relicblade looks like a fun game, but I haven't had a chance to actually play it yet.

Cheers guys, you're all gents!

A couple more random pics - a display board/gameboard for skirmish games, a completed watchtower (kitbashed from the GW Rohan set), and some other random WIPs...

I'm getting ahead of myself, as there's a lot in the last month or two to share, but this is my most recent project start. Largest thing I've ever worked on and very likely the most difficult.

A Black Order border fort, high in the mountains, taking as its inspiration Golubac Fortress in Serbia.

The gatehouse is still to be built, gaps to be filled, doors and windows to be assembled, and the whole thing needs to be put on a baseplate with a cliff wall at the back - but it's an early indicator of the direction I hope this will take.

Madness...  Utterly cool, mind-boggling miniature madness.

A perfect example of what makes this hobby so fantastic.

Thanks for posting. I'm inspired/humbled.
