Dear Lagomorph:

I think I've loved every build you posted.

This one - and the lessons learnt - much appreciated.

Now, just imagine now much BIGGER everything would look if all the figures were nicely painted 15mm....which by the way have oodles of civilians readily available.

All for 1/5 to 1/4 the price of a decent 25mm.

Thank you :)

But 15mm too small for these bunnies and far too fiddly to paint.

I'd like to see 15mm figures on some Crenellated/Battlemented walls and towers to see if they look credible.
I run a standing step behind the walls for the 15's to stand on. IT isnt' perfect - ecven the CBS doors are too big - but a 4x factor in available area makes it worthwhile.

It would look strange. 15mm miniatures wouldn't be able to "see" between the merlons. Even the 28mm miniatures I used in my build posts strain credibility a bit, especially if a weapon accessory (ballista, Greek fire projector) is mounted on a high merlon next to a mini.

I see Godofwar only games on tables. Sad!

Seriously 15mm would probably make DF huge. I don't have any 15mm stuff
Nope. At my age gaming on tables only is not an option, its a necessity.

The hedges are from a GW set I had from years ago - I was impressed at how good they look here :)

Working on adding a GW Sigmarite Mausoleum - started work on this yesterday. Really impressed with the quality and quantity and it will be a great addition to my build and a source my sons skellies to assault the castle :)

Link to my WiP build flickr album so you can see the progress so far - shows up to half the contents.

This might sound like a lame question but what are your hedgerows on the CBS brick sidewalks made from?
Cannabis?

Cool build. Good news: the pins on the bridge ramps are easy to remove with a pair of pliers. You can take them out and put them back in as desired. I've done it a bunch of times. Makes them much more versatile.
