Samurai Watchtower available NOW!

2020-02-17 by David

We have a new (and very tall) release for the Samurai range to show you today. The Samurai Watchtower is now officially available for download!

 

  Samurai Watchtower  





Well well.... painting this didn't take very long at all! With a spray undercoat, a spray brown wash, and some drybrushing, this whole thing was painted in only 1 hour and 47 minutes!! Posing the models for these shots probably took just as long!





The 3-level version of the watchtower measures a very tall 320mm (13") tall, and is made up of a base level, a mid-level and a top level with that large roof.

 

Each level can be removed separately, in case your ninja want to fight your way up to the top to silence the alarm from being raised? On every staircase corner there is a small platform which can accommodate a regular-sized model.





The roof has been modelled with rough wooden planks, held down by long strips of bamboo. They were used as fixed watchtowers in earlier castles, and could also be erected on the battlefield to provide commanders with a better view.

 

I also added a few water transfers to the centre "shield" of each side, to simulate the local lord's clan crest - these were commonly painted on, or branded into the wood.





If the full 3-level tower is too much for your warriors to handle (just think of all those steps!!), then why not remove the middle level and just create this 2-level tower. The interior staircases are designed to fit both options - simply slot on the top level!

 

The two-level tower is 210mm (8½") tall.





If you are a particularly cruel local lord, you can remove the roof and let your watchtower guards get soaked in the rain! I'm sure they'll thank you for it.....





The Samurai Watchtower is available for download from today!
