Printing the ruined castle wall

2021-03-31 by David

There was such a great response to the Temple Walls set released at the weekend, that I wanted to push on quickly to bring out 2 little additions to the samurai collection.

 

The first of these new releases will be a ruined castle wall section, to fit into the existing castle wall pieces.


 

Here's a photo of the real-life inspiration for the ruined section - the famous Kumamoto castle, after its walls collapsed during the big 2016 earthquake.

 



Our castle walls are slightly smaller in scale, but this ruined section can slot neatly into a double-width section in your castle wall layout. You could either model it as a quake-collapsed section, or possibly a breach in the walls caused by battle damage or an explosion!

 




You can also choose to model it without the top wall pieces, if you prefer.





The collapsed section has been modelled with playability in mind, with a slightly flattened bottom and some handy 25mm-base-sized rocks at variousl points, rather than a solid slope all the way up.





Here's a close-up of the wall tops. They feature the arrow slits from the undamaged walls, with cracks, broken tiles and missing plaster sections on the outside, plus glimpses of the bamboo pieces used to hold the walls together. A whole lot of authentic details there!
