Castle Ramparts? How can we make them? 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
So Jeff & Stefan,

Aside from using the floor pack to make elevated ramparts, can you show us a picture of, say, a 3 story ramparts (from the inside - so we can see the support pieces) and how what we would require to build some semblance of a castle wall (under siege, for example)?
Pictures would be a plus! Feel free to do your Helm's Deep example (or just any ole castle)!

There are many many examples of peoples Multi-Level dungeons (going down) and buildings (going up) in the 'Cool Pictures of Dwarven forge' section on this forum.

There is no magic to it. Generally - you either use large pieces and lots of columns / internal walls but then you can't smoothly transfer between levels.
So what most people do is get some sheets or perspex etc and build on that. Lifting off or adding as required.

There is nothing different / special / more challenging with Dwarvenite.
It is only some sheets of perspex that stand in your way!

Use pedestals to make crenellations. That's just about the size they were at Helm's Deep...

Perspex = A see through Plastic sheet...
(Perspex is an abbreviation for 'Poly(methyl methacrylate)', aka 'acrylic glass'.)

Oh! Plexiglass!
Do you have the link for that thread?
What I'm looking for is a cut-away to see how we can build ramparts using pieces from this KS. As in, what add-ons and how many would we need to buy to make ramparts. Helm's deep would be a good one because not so much of a multi-level (wall) as a basic castle wall. I'm not talking about the tiers behind the wall or inside the mountain, just the ramparts themselves? The 'bridge'/ramp would be nice too but not necessary. I'm trying to decide just how badly I *NEED* ramparts, yanno? Multi levels within dungeons I understand. And no real NEED for windows or arrow slits - although I do like the idea of multi=purposing them as levers/traps/etc.

GM Screen (with dice towers - one rolls outwards and one rolls inwards) made from aluminum tape, cardboard and a sharpie!

Here is the forum link:

www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=view&catid=3&id=10177

It is Several years old. Have a look through this section:
www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=showcat&catid=3

There are plenty of stunning 'Towns' and multi-level buildings and castles to look at..
As well as some multi depth dungeons... Will take you 15 minutes and you will find several amazing examples.
(Tip - More replies - the more likely it is worth a look (doesn't matter on the age) and watch out for Shadox posting 'This Rocks the Free World' around the place... :D It is like a stamp of approval ;) )
