I'm already drowning in miniatures both metal and plastic. And way too many unpainted ones. I have as many kobolds as I need, and guardsmen minis for castle defender types. But if I didn't, then those would be nice. Good looking sculpts.

I got minis last time as I needed more townsfolk.

Well the bridge connectors are balconies also, so hat double use is very nice

I have been wanting bridges for a long time and frequently looked on ebay for resin ones, but never bit. Im mostly going for outdoors here and the bridge really will help there

Nah, no minis for me. I got lizardmen and the newts, but other than bonus KSIII figs, I have not gotten any since then.

I see a lot of large Castle pledges, but as someone else getting just towers and add-ons, it helps me to see what others in similar situations are getting. I see you've both gone for the bridges, spacers and balcony supports. I'm undecided on that - those bridges look so cool, but how often would I use them in my games?

I currently have selected in the PM, but not finalized:
1 x Watchtower (base)
1 x Gatehouse (base)
1 x Wizard Outpost (base)
1 x Temple Roof (Roof)
1 x Large Wizard Roof (Roof)
1 x Small Bridge
1 x Small Round Crenellations
1 X Square Castle Tower (CBS)
1 x Cliffs (Mountain)
1 x Peaks (Mountain)
I think the bridges can be used for a lot of different builds. Not just to connect towers but as well, bridges. I see the cube spacers as getting a bunch of play in my dungeon setups. I imagine the bridge spans being used to provide elevation in dungeon builds, spanning different rivers of water and lava, the ramps providing interesting trap ideas (like the rolling boulder in Traps 1), and just adding some cool looking visual element to different builds. Imagine two bridge ramps stood on end as a pair of wide buttresses. Lots of good things you can do.
As for the bridge tower connectors, I think I can make the square tower ones do double duty as an elevated archway in a dungeon setup of some kind. But really that is just for connecting an extra square tower (it takes 2 sets to connect three square towers, which is what I have in mind).

Yep, that is exactly the plan. I think it is a cheap way to get some nice 4 inch towers. I'll likely get some towers retail or in August but for right now it is a nice addition for 27 bucks.
Those small crenellations would look good atop a parapet too. Provided you have a CBS stone building to attach to. That is not an expensive add on for two parapets.

Small Round Crenellations are super-useful for people using a lot of KS1 and CBS stuff for castles.

You can combine them with KS1 curved walls to make rounded sections of CBS-style walls. You can also even make some guard towers using just KS1 curved walls (some internal supports) and small round crenellations.

I personally think that KS4 pledges should get roofs and crenellations for each tower to maximize their versatility (e.g. Large Roof add-on for Watchtower, Small Crenellations add-on for Wizard's Outpost).
