Samurai Castle Corner Tower
A castle corner tower from old Japan, designed to be used in conjunction with the Samurai Castle Walls Set.
Based on Kumamoto Castle's famous wooden-sided yagura towers, this corner tower is a fully-playable terrain piece. It can be used with a single-storey tiled roof, or you can choose to print the alternative roof with a second building level. The two-storey tower is 175mm tall, or 240mm tall with the base wall section.
The room interiors are fully detailed and textured, with authentic defensive features (arrow slits in the walls and murder holes in the overhanging floors), and the window shutters can be modelled open or closed. Internal stairs are also included, in case you choose to add the second storey to the tower.
This corner section is designed to be used with the other Castle Walls pieces, and can be connected using the joining clips or 5mm rare earth magnets.

I am Pleased with how this has turned out so far. I need to finish painting this for it to be authentic in appearance, but there is value to this look, which can be used as a sort of ghostly mini-castle which appears when the Moons are in a certain phase. Perhaps a drum can be heard in the distance by a Samurai who goes off to bed, and only he can hear the Drums of Spirit calling to him. He arises in the middle of the night and follows the sound which guides him to this mysterious fortress in a place which is close to where he lives, but somehow he's not at all familiar with it.
I have purchased quite a number of the Samurai .STL's and I have been working on the main castle for some time, but the process is long and I had to take a side step just to finish this Samurai Corner Tower so that I could have a sense of accomplishment and completion. I have posted the pictures on Instagram and have received rave reviews.
I have to compliment the designers who put in the time and effort to put unmatched detail into these designs. Whatever they are being paid it should be trippled!
Thank You, 3D Alien Worlds for these. I still wish to be a licensed vendor, and I absolutely SHALT NOT SELL anything I make from your .STL's without being licensed! I have the utmost of Respect for Copyright and Trademark Laws, and those who possess items which they have secured under those Laws. I happen to be one such person myself.
I give a deep bow of Respect to the Designers who took the time, and painstaking effort to make such Beautiful and Enthralling Designs! Thank You, Brothers!
