The following pictures show the building of a Keep. It is small enough to fit into a 6 inch square, which I use with my gridded wargaming tabletop, and large enough for one of my large bases to fit into the top.
|Using an old spare piece of timber cut in to 5 inch lengths to for a square|
|Nail the pieces together and add a ramp from some of the off cuts. Use wood fillers to cover nail holes and spread around a bit to create an uneven surface|
|Create and add a top from some MDF board.|
|Add strips of MDF board to the top of the keep. Use wood filler to cover nail holes and create uneven surface just like the walls.|
|Lightly sand, saw some slits on the battlements and seal with acrylic varnish.|
|I widened the slits with a standby knife then painted with mid-grey|
|Brush on a lighter grey and paint on details.|
|Flock the Keep and a unit can be placed on top|
In the meantime I am continuing to play a game or two using Lion Rampant in a gridded tabletop.
