Soooo what to do with it all?. Mrs Sprinks came up with a brilliant idea. 'Why don't you use this stuff to make the kids a castle to play with you magnificent specimen of a man you! (not her actual words). Now as a manchild that pushes toys around tables i heard 'why don't you use this stuff to........make a castle etc etc (you know the rest). So thats what i did. A ton of cutting, gluing, paper mashing and painting (and a few bad, bad words) and i had the following:
Flat Pack Castle!
Now i admit its no Mighty Fortress (ask an Oldhammerer) but its not such a bad effort if i do say so meself!. Its meant to be a ruined castle hence the crumbliness to the brickwork and cracks n' all. Its table ready standard. Here's some more pics:
Its made in sections so i can use as much or as little as i want at a time. I also made some ruined sections so some of the walls could look as if they had been breached in the past and a ruined tower too.
The whole thing when put together is pretty large, the table its on is roughly 90cm wide and the felt i used is 95cm square to give an idea. Below is a scale shot to show the height.
From left: 28mm GW orc, 1:72 (20mm) human and horseman (Red Box and Zvesda ).
In the Wronghammer tradition it was cheep, fun and has a charm of its own (i hope!).
...anyway.... till next time.........
