Small Fortification
« on: July 15, 2007, 09:12:12 PM »
Since I'm new in this forum, I thought I should show some of my works. Here is a small fort I have build some time ago:

















Comments and suggestions are welcome

Wow, that is one nice fort!  :Ohmy:

It looks tremendously fun for small sieges and skirmish games.
Very nice work  :eusa_clap:

Welcome, and WO!!!

That's really great!

I bet it's fun to game around with ... since the new building scenery sprue came out, your fort seems too historical... OR GW really went to town on making theirs fantastical; either way, I love'em both.

Great Work, and have fun on the boards!

Nice fort, it does look similar to the new kit, showing that Gamesworkshop didn't really have a lot of imagination when they designed it. If you are in the mood for some further work it might be nice to make a set of civilian buildings to go with it - that way you can play an attack on a village and add depth to the game

Hello,

@fbjorn:  The Bases is styrodur (polystyrene). The copplestones are cardboard cut with a holepuncher. The walls, the house and he tower are made from 6mm selitron (another kind of polystyrene). 

The walkways are made from wood, the gate and the windows are carved out of hardfoam. That basicly it. :-)

@Scania: Here is the picture:

Really good stuff!  I'd be proud to defend that fort any day.  And wait until Grutch sees that ship, he'll have enough ships to start his armada!

Nice, a battleboard with a point! Slap a river on it and I'm coming round for a battle myself!

The windmill is my favorite!
It looks awesome (and is huge)!
If it`s not a big problem please post few more pics of it.
WIP pictures would be great if possible.

@Bartuc: Sorry, but I do not have any WIP pictures of the windmill, but here are a few of the finished thing:









The whole thing can be disassembled to store it.


By the way Bartuc, I really like your minis. They look great!

 :eusa_clap: Brilliant!
You have inspired me to make my own imperial windmill!
Which material did you use to cover the turning plates?
Thanks!

@Bartuc: The sails are from textile, which I died with tea to make them look old.

@Guildenstern: The food is made from fimo. You can get this stuff in lots of different colors, so that you do not have to paint it. So you only have to put it together in a proper way to get bread, cheese, sausages and bacon.  :-D
