LAST BRICK LAID

The castle is pretty much finished,  it just needs labeling as specified in the homework,  to show all the different forms of defence. The boy added the finishing touches of paintwork yesterday







Hopefully the history teacher will approve. Now I can get back to painting soldiers....yipeee!!

  1. Fine, very fine!! Will there be flags and banners to top it off?

    1. Eventually, the first banner in the flagpole slot (on the keep) will have the boys name and class on it for ID at school.

  2. The teacher had better be impressed...
    I'll second flags and banners.

    1. Really great castle!! With your other two sons requesting castles, I see the possibility for a very fun campaign in the works!

  8. What a wonderful, scratch built creation! I want to build a 6mm version for some ECW siege gaming - I hope it comes out half as good as this!

    1. Thanks Paul, it was suprisingly quick to make as we didn't want to get too bogged down in exact measurements etc. I do like very small scale buildings like 10 and 6mm so I would be interested to see your creation.
