Siege Equipment: Finished

Friday, November 18th, 2011

So I’ve got all of the siege equipment ready to go along with the Castle for an upcoming siege game we are planning. If all goes well, I’ll post a battle report of that. This all goes along with the Fortress/Castle I’ve recently finished and I’ve got a few more things I’m thinking about working on related to Siege battles.

See Part 1 here.

Much progress has been made on the siege tower and a little progress to the idea of having a full on siege battle finally happen.  I recently added 2 additional walls of the Warhammer Fortress to the set, this allows me to have a few extra configurations and cover enough of a table edge, at least for as much as I’m looking for.  I’m going to build this siege tower, a battering ram, some manlets and a few other misc items and then sit down and pain the whole deal at once…at least that’s my plan.

While the building may be done, I’ve got some additional bits I’m going to use to help hide some seams and make it have a bit of character. Other than that, it’s more or less ready to be painted and prepped for the battle field and a grand siege.

Siege Tower (Part 1)

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Terrain night returning has inspired a few things that have been long standing desires, one of which is a full on siege setup. We have done them in the past, and when I say past, the last time I believe we had a proper siege game was almost 10 years ago, sadly. Now, with Kings of War and miniature gaming in general picking up, this has driving the idea to a couple of great scenario ideas, some involving sieges, ship battles, dungeon crawls, and more! Here’s a quick preview of a siege tower that I’m working, if things go well, there might be some battering rams, ladders, and other siege equipment being created along with this.
