Splendid job, jon! You're making me seriously considering getting some of those castle bits...

I've done a circular tower with Hirst Arts castings, but it really is a chore to cast all those blocks, and then assemble them. And dusty and messy.... And the result is very heavy and fragile. Your way would be so much more elegant and practical.

Only three years after completion Sir John of Hytchen discovered a use for his new castle.  His treacherous son had raised a vile army of beastmen and chaos scum to besiege the castle and claim the throne.



Ogres batter at the gate, marauders have scaled the walls as more beastment arrive with scaling ladders in the background.

It was in the balance for a time but remembering the old Star Wars adage ("Let the Wookie Win") a few fudged rolls saw the defenders over-run.  It was played using a simplified version of Lion Rampant with my 11 year old son.  The attackers had two retinues to the defenders one.
