The basic shape of the Gorktress has been made from foamcore. Read on to find out how I constructed it.
I built the two towers first (wait, wrong game system). Then I cut slots into the side of both towers to slide the front walls and floor of the fort into. This works great because it supports the floor meaning I don’t need struts.
I can easily fit 24 Arrer Boyz onto the platform, I have concerns that you might not be able to see them once I’ve built Gork’s face and mounted it over the door. Maybe I’ll cut the eyes out so they can shoot through them. Next time, I’m cladding the structure in wood.

Love the idea of the death gaze of Gork (or Mork) with the arrer boyz shooting from the eye holes.
I've decided not to enter this year with it being only store level this time (wanted another crack at national title) so will be keeping my entry on the the slow boil for another year (more time to do the electronics, custom mouldings and extreme modifications) but watching this develop with interest. Keep it going, it's always great to see how others build and detail their layouts
