Pretty cool wizard tower from GW 3 Years, 8 Months ago  
Yes, yes, I know they're the devil and all, but this is pretty neat:

It's a bit "busy" for me, as are most GW designs, but there's a lot to recommend it. The $66 price tag is steep, esp. since you still have to assemble and paint the thing, but I don't think it's unfair; a fully painted and assembled tower this large and elaborate would be far more expensive. It's a nice touch that it has so many interior details, when much of the time scenery like this is exterior-only (including prior GW plastic kits which I actually do like). I plan to get it at some point, and will post pics once it's finished.

For people who like the general idea but prefer something cheaper and/or ruined, the same basic design is available in "all smashed up" version for $30.

That's pretty cool but beyond my skills to assemble.

This one is great for 29.00 and comes prepainted. Sure you can't open
it but you can always build the interior separately from dwarven forge.

Thanks for posting this. I have been considering doing it, but it could have been viewed as advertisement, me working for GW and all, so I decided not to.

I like the tower, because it is this ornamented and yeah, you have to paint it, but I am used to that :-)

My wife and me are working on painting ours and it is still far from finished, but if there is any interest I could take some pictures of the details and post them here, even if still unfinished.

I'd like it more if it weren't so busy, as Law mentioned previously. I do like its modular design, allowing play at each level.

But I like this one even more:

www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440005a&prodId=prod900168a

It would be perfect for Mordheim, and would work great for D&D or Pathfinder. I think I'll have to pick one of these up.

I would LOVE to see pics!

I am definitely going to get this thing, it looks awesome. The more I think about it, the more I like it.

Although some of the business is unavoidable, it does look like you can leave some of the kibble off if you want. The big support columns along the side, with the statues in them, can be left out, as can some of the platforms on higher levels. Plus, if you get more than one of them, or get it along with the Dreadstone Blight (which is just the ruined version) you can stack it even higher. It's a basic stacking design, so you can do as many floors as you want.

I'm REALLY looking forward to getting it. Already thinking of color schemes.

Hey guys,
please bear with me. I will make good on my promise and post some pictures here soon. There is this big event at my shop this saturday, that needs all of my attention even in my time off work.
Still, I'll try to get the pics in this weekend.


Stay tuned,

Re:Pretty cool wizard tower from GW 3 Years, 7 Months ago  
Fine, it works after a zillion of tries and reediting of the pics ;)

And now for something completely different .... a larch .... errrr ..... more awesome pics.

But beforehand, some data of the tower:
height: 1 ft. including the merlons
each floor is a bit more than 2 inches
diameter: 6 inches

Missing on the pics are 2 trapdoors in the roof, and 2 ladders connecting the 3rd floor with the roof. Also included in the box are spare parts of ruined wall segments. As for the painting, as you can see, it's not completely done yet.
