I really like the stonework on the round tower in the picture, it appears to mimic the original resin stone althought the crenelations look to be cut stones like the battlements in KS3. Will the overhangs have some holes in the floor with channels to pour boiling oil and such over the attackers below?

I hope the round tower walls themselves (without the tops) can be used for larger round rooms in dungeon layouts without to much difference in floor and wall height or wall thickness.

I pledged the Medieval Mayhem KS with the M.P. & The Holy Grail minis and I can't wait to do a shoot of the foolish French soldiers on the wall. These will be so ccol. :o 8-)

That tower looks like a LOT of dwarvenite... What I see is:

Honestly as much as I'd like a castle to play with, I'm not sure how worthwhile it will be for RPG usage. Any beans on whether there will be expansion sets for dungeon/caverns/city/sewer as well.

KS4 does indeed include round MODULAR towers and a host of other Castle dressings! Save your peanuts for March 6th Assault!

I love it.

It could just be a trick of the light, but it looks like there's some sort of sun-face sculpt to the left of the left-most arrowslit that is visible.

The top piece does appear to have a seam toward the left, so it's possible the top bits come in two sections.

The support structures holding up the crenellated wall are beautiful.

To be honest, while I'm SUPER excited about this KS, and I'm REALLY looking forward to the goodies, this particular tower isn't what I'm most eager to see. Yeah, it looks nice. But I already sold off my Mage Knight castle tower and my GW Witchfate Tor, both of which also looked awesome and were impressive, detailed round castle towers. I loved them. But I made a strategic decision to sell them off to make room for, well, more DF. It wouldn't make sense for me to go gaga over something that's essentially just a replacement for a thing I already had.

I'm hoping to see, in addition to KS3-themed add-ons, stuff like conical roofs for round towers, arches, magnificent gate houses, etc. And other stuff I haven't even dreamed of.

Don't get me wrong -- I'm excited. And this picture is AWESOME and has me very excited for KS4. But this really is a teaser -- it whets the appetite without yet showing the stuff I REALLY wanna see.

While I suspect my pledge will be quite small, I am very excited for all of you who want castle. I agree, this picture looks great.

Nice tease photo for sure.

The teaser looks good. But this really hurts me. With KS3 items just about to hit the store, having the next kickstarter begins so shortly after that, splits my money quite a bit.

I'll really have to think hard about this kickstarter.

BTW, a good idea to make a whole new sub-forum for KSIV stuff.
