Death on the Reik- Scale Model of Castle Von Wittgenstein

Note, I've posted this a few places on the web to get feedback so why not here at the home of Oldhammer, whiole not WFB it is WFRP so close enough IMO.

I've already posted on your blog, but I'd love to see it develop. I think if you went with the floorplan for the layout, but with the art for the architectural style, it could work very well.

Also, it'd be great for running a WFB Siege campaign in!

With REALLY tall siege towers and ladders...

I'd love to see this floor standing, with the cliffs bringing the lower parts of the castle to normal table height.

Re: Death on the Reik- Scale Model of Castle Von Wittgenstei

Great idea. Personally I wouldn't go too mad on the cliffs and chop it off just below the bridges. It's also exactly the sort of thing I'd never finish, so I'd probably start with individual buildings that could go straight on the tabletop, and build the cliffs at the end if I ever got that far.

Good luck.

Re: Death on the Reik- Scale Model of Castle Von Wittgenstei

I’ve scaled the cliffs down, have to.

I should note, I’ve started on this with the middle tower. Really that is the lynch pin of the whole thing in terms of construction. Once I get that right the rest should come together. I’ve already got pirc s setcadife for the towers of the final gate (oatmeal containers) which are just about perfect for size.
