Footprint of Arrow Slit Walls? 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
I was hoping to get some clarification on this before finalizing my order, because it has a bearing on how they can be used to build...

Are the Arrow Slit Walls a full 4x4 inch piece (edit: I meant 4 sq in 2x2) like a normal wall with the window pierced into the side, or are they 1x2 inch like a door, and meant to go on top of a floor tile to fill a gap in a wall like a standard width door does?

It's really hard to tell from the one picture since the angle is from a fairly shallow perspective & low resolution so you can't quite make out the grid lines on the floor, and there's no adjoining pieces to compare it with. My best guess judging from the fact that it's six "bricks" high is that it's just like the Window Wall in the castle set, and it's a 2x2 piece.

I could see advantages to both approaches, free standing it could be used in cover scenarios but as a standard wall it's easier to swap in when your party blows their perception checks and suddenly come under fire. =P

Could we get confirmation on it either way, please?

Welcome to the DF forum Geekjeff, make sure to visit the "cool photos of DF sets"!

First, a normal wall is 2*2, not 4*4. The image of the arrow slit wall is indeed confusing, possibly because the image is a Photoshop edit. The actual piece was not yet sculpted during the KS. This piece will be 2*2 to respect modularity, as every other Game Tile pieces respects modularity.

Derp, that'll teach me to forum post anywhere late at night after a few margaritas. I meant to ask was it like a standard 4 square inch wall piece, of course that's 2x2.

Guess I've spent way too much time drooling over the 4x4 caverns sets over the last few days. Down, wallet! Must be strong!

Thanks for the clarification. Now, do I want Castle Walls, or Floors, or Diagonals for my last addon? Decisions desisions...

Mmm... margaritas...

[on vacation at the moment -- maybe the tapas place to which we're going later will serve some kind of margarita, although usually I have sangria with tapas]

Mmm... sangria...

[Now I don't know what to have later. D'oh!]
