Now here’s a decidedly pretty one I painted for a friend – the resin Fortress by Kallistra!
It’s sold as being suited for 15mm as well as for 10mm sized figures. At first I thought it would be much too big for 10mm figures, but when I set it up along with my 10mm Thirty Years Wars collection it actually fits really well.
You know what this means: It’s suited for Warmaster! Warmaster in itself is pretty darned cool. Just imagine having a proper fortress for it and all.
The wall sections themselves are well cast. The material is resin with something slightly grainier mixed in, which makes it a bit easier to cut if you see the need.
Good stuff. If I was to buy a 10mm (or 15mm) castle, This one would be my set of choice. You buy all the sections separately off Kalistra’s website. I did 13 sections here, and it seems like a few more (something like 15 to 17) would be required for a full sized nice castle, but this way it works really well too. It’s a nice little thing that you can set up the towers by themselves as watchtowers and such.
Even just having some wall sections at some corner of the table as a city wall adds a lot to the whole medieval feel. I’m not sure what it is, but castles are just instantly appealing to me. Much more than I expected really. But look at those pictures – it does have something heart-warming to it I think. 🙂 Needless to say that I played a lot with Playmobil and lego castles when I was a kid.
|As you can see, the size works out well for 10mm figures. These six fellas are mounted on a 3x2mm base, approximately 1.18 x 0.78 inches.|
Hope you like it. 🙂
Yus, but at this point in time I'm not holding my breath for any "Specialist Games" making a meaningful return. And we don't need it. The Warmaster rules are readily available and there are tons of Warmaster figures around on ebay and such. Granted, for silly prices at times, but this is where all these other companies come in. Pendraken have been pushing their 10mm Fantasy stuff for a while now and got a huge range by now.
So cost isn't that much of a factor, availability certainly isn't, the only thing required is people actually doing it. 🙂
And heck, if the Warmaster rules aren't to your liking, play 10mm Kings of War. Or use Hail Caesar (which of course sprang from Warmaster itself), or any of the other many, many set of rules. Nobody needs GW to have a good game and the good old times won't come back.
