form a stronghold when playing medieval
skirmishes and sieges.
I have read the rules to Warhammer ancient
battles and I am planing to start a campaign
that will occur between the danes and the
swedes during the middle ages.
I find the history during this period very
interessting and it was also indeed very bloody
and with those two ingrediences I have a perfect
inspiration for my campaign.
I will use mainly Deus vult figures but I will mix
them with bits and figures from Games workshop,
I got two gates in present manufactured by GW and
they were in not good shape but I have fixed them
both and updated them with gates.
I think these gates will look good with some paint
and they are the first two buildings that will
be sections in my castle-build.
I will also build 4 towers and 2-3 wall-sections
and finally a mainbuilding with a chapel on the top.
The main idea with this build is that it will be
playable also when the soldiers have stormed it
and not so static. With this I mean that the fight
can take place on the walls, on the stairs and
inside the buildings and towers.
I hope that my pictures will give som inspiration
to others out there.
And some pictures of the scratchbuilt gates:
