First Step towards Modular Castle: Modular walls

Yeah, it would be cool, but I can think of SO MANY things I'd rather see than castle walls from DF.....with a limited budget, is this really where we want to see DF branching into?

I think they are different from what already exists (I didn't look) because they are modular in height. Others are probably only wall pieces put side by side.

Stefan: Yes I thought of making them larger and hollow at first, but I chose to make the bases filled to make them heavier and the other stages hollow to make them lighter but with supports inside to make them stronger. Since I don't use resin, hollow would have been too fragile.

More walls, and Gate house on the way as soon as I finish MBS add-ons.

Very cool, but would not want to see DF put resources into this.....MBA already makes it.

Bravo! Like the ruins also and the little stabilizer you stuck in there for connecting. I was wondering if you considered making a small quarter curve for in side the other corner to make an impromptu or smaller tower type corner. I know you have those nice towers but it would be another option?

I can certainly see some of those " flickering LED's " inside some of those openings! That would make an awesome picture.

Great Job Crioux,

Yes, when we make our walls we will make sure there are passages for characters to walk through on the inside of the walls...it's something i always did when I designed and drew out my castle's plans growing up....I always just thought it was kool to be able to walk inside those walls...all sorts of nasty things hiding in there.............it will also be lighter that way (and therefore cheaper)

Chris,

Let me know if you want to do a vacation in the Chesapeake Bay region, with some resin work on the side!
Bring your molds.
