Awesome, I love the two versions of walls together.
Yea that is what I liked also. With the Epix stuff and DF stuff you can make it look like one set of walls are from the old town days and the others are something that has been added to the town.

Great, thanks! Those are fantastic pictures! I like how seamless it looks to fit with the various DF elements.

And are there two different towers? Amazon has a Corner Tower that's $10 more than the freestanding tower, but they both look the same.
The one on the front wall (wall 1) is a Corner Tower and the other on wall 3 is the Gatehouse.

The corner tower has openings on two sides that match with the wall pieces. The free standing tower does not.

I like those houses. Are they MBA? I can't seem to find any quite like them on the MBA website. A new product?

I think the Epix Haven style blends better with Miniature Building Authority than CBS.

I saw this product for the first time in person at CMON Expo over the weekend in Atlanta. The Gentleman packed it up and drove down from D.C. The product is resin with detailed interiors removable sections and roofs.
No they are more detailed than MBA and do not blend with MBA very well.
Sorry, I do not recall the company name 8-)

The small tower roofs blend well with MBA

Rabbitburner mentioned the new MBA large towers. I don't have them.

I only have a DF large tower. I have not painted it yet.

I did not get in on the Epic Haven because I have no more room/storage space for castles

Is the retail price $59.99? Or is that the sale price?

And I see the watchtower is now listed as on sale. Anyone have that? Worth it?
We looked yesterday and nothing was available.

We backed their original Kickstarter and got the castle - 4 sets of walls, four corner towers and a massive gatehouse. We have since then added 2 more sets of walls and two of the Tudor houses.

This stuff is really nice and hefty and have the best packaging we have ever seen. Remember when backing it - it was expensive but looked amazing and we backed it almost hoping it would not fund, which it did 'barely' but when it arrived 'WOW!'.

This stuff is so good in the hand or on the table as its too heavy to keep in your hand too long ;)
Here are some random pictures of builds incorporating these magnificent castle pieces.

The last two highlight a cool fact of the walls, in that one set of walls is in fact two wall sections that can be built at single or double height - the first wall being single height and the third one being double height.

You get access to inside the walls and all level of the towers and gatehouse.

Apologies we don't have a standalone Watchtower :(

We cant recommend this stuff enough if your looking for quick build castle variety. Though not as modular or flexible as DF castles they look and play amazing. But like a lot of high quality products they come with a high quality price - though there have been several sales as unclebilly has pointed out (Twice!).
