Any chance of seeing more close up's of the observation deck upright supports, I love the idea, what will the eventual finish of those be?

Will the mesh end up being extended rock walls then? If so will that be a mix of polyfilla and slate type rocks and how are you thinking of transporting the thing?

I love the doors, I think the ones with the handles closer together look marginally better, don't suppose you could share any experiences of casting stuff, something I've always fancied trying

Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing more updates!

@Halfmileduck

If you fancy trying casting, you're more than welcome to do some casting of windows and doors.  There are quite a few required, especially if people would like some.

It's all modular and designed for transport.  It just doesn't all fold flat, but it should take up just over a 2 foot square area.  The largest part is the extension to the hill top.

OK, mini update.  I've tidied up the door master with plates to hold the rings and more definition in the hinges.  I've included the original idea for the door handles for comparison.



Definitely an improvement and ready for mould making tomorrow.

Right, weekly update and a more complete picture of what is going on with the board.  This image shows the completed mesh skeleton for the rock walls and the proposed position of the buildings



I've added the watch tower overlooking the road up to the gates and more importantly, added the gates.  I've made a little more progress on the large building by adding some texture but am now waiting on a new mould to set so I can produce the doors.  Speaking of which, here is my new mould for casting windows.



And here is the first batch of windows ready to be washed.  These will be added to the large building's extension and then to the watch tower.



The next couple of pics show the entrance and a Fubarnii Herder Captain for scale and the view from the back of the board.





Next week the rock walls should be started and the large building complete, ready for painting.

It is Fricking MASSIVE! Good job mate. Looking forward to see how you approach those rock walls, are you intending to use real rock/slate in addition to good old filla?

No real rock is to be used, just plaster bandage and filler.  Should help keep the weight down.

Is this the Delgon artillery?  How many are we talking and what foot print do they have?

They're on 50mm bases and I believe Mike has 3.

Only a small update so far this week as I've been mostly casting more components to stick on the buildings and making tiles.  I've started the rock walls and have managed a single layer of bandage that has set incredibly hard.



I've also been working on the hinges for main gates, pics for those coming soon!
