I wonder how many large crenelations will be bought up in the first seconds of them hitting the store?

Liking the idea of what would you do to proof a castle against Dragon attack - maybe a new thread.

Love that kit bash with the Da Vinci Armoured car - very effective and potentially dragon proof, you just need to be able to elevate those 16 canon!

a Hinge down the Rivet lines allowing the roof to open up to fire at the scaly attacker and a quick closure when under attack.
It Might rate a new thread. I am afraid there are many people who don't build or paint or want anything not made from PVC :roll:

I was thinking that some of the magnetic traps could work for this too.

I made this yesterday.

The RAFM Nebbel Dwarfer Auto bolt thrower. I am not sure if t is still available.

You could use your DF bolt thrower as a base if you want

I am thinking about what kind of defences would be needed if dragons were real.

What about Leonardo tanks as turret tops?

I ordered a plastic kit to kit bash or copy to scale.

This Academy model kit fits the small tower. I will find out if some of the wooden kits are large enough for the Large Watch Tower. The toy kit is translucent so it was primed black.Still a WIP the kit arrived today.

I think the rabbit is OOP MBA

I made the Storm Giant during a debate of the Hobbit Movie.
Shame about the Rabbit, looks great :)

and your Storm Giant is awesome, looks like its celebrating hurling a rock into the face of its opponent :D

and just how long was that debate? ;)
Short :lol: The nay sayers fled like cockroaches when the lights come on.The topic evolved into available local materials.
The rabbit was flawed the metal ears make it front heavy. Make one from craft sticks but use lead/tin foil or felt for the ears.

Is it possible with the Dwarven Forge small towers to make an in line small wall tower?

I did not see the need for a 45 degree MBA tower until I started this encounter location.Now I want an inline wall tower too.

Stefan posted something about a larger restock in Feb if I am remembering correctly. Hopefully the large crens will be available by then.

I would really like to get at least two sets of these. They are very useful. I'm kicking myself for not ordering them during the PM but at that time, money was tight.

Is that the Infamous Rabbit of Gork?

Love that - how do we get one???

Blue roofs look good, think could be combined in the same build as the red ones - I mean what castle would not want to have a red sorcerer tower as well as a blue one ...... sensing fireworks!

Do like the hoarding, have been tempted to get some MBA castle, they have some nice variations that a DF castle does not, but its not as modular, Still on the radar though.

That's some impressive terrain shelves you got there old boy and still trying to figure out what the rock idol is in front of the blinds is ;)
