That is absolutely amazing. I would never be able to paint that much plastic though.
That's why I opted for the painted version. My wife was the wise voice in my ear saying "it'll never get painted". I know I could do it, been doing Minis for 30 years... But The magnitude of the task... Yeah no.

That could be cool, just hit it with matte black paint/primer, done. Evil Castle! Boo!!!
That'd be the only option for me with that much DF! :)

Also, I'd be interested to know the collection as well for purposes of comparison. I 'think' I got roughly enough to do something similar, though not all of it shipped.

Whilst both Drawbridge add-ons contain the Portcullis its interesting to note that The Citadel/GC battlements mega pack also contains the CBS Murder hole floor with slot for Portcullis deployment, but with sadly no actual Portcullis.
OH?? I didn't get the Murder Hole floor.

There was a weird "door" pic on the box that was not included. Seemed like an error... maybe it was supposed to be the floor?

Hi Dolken,
This a castle style I was looking at with long walls plus square and round towers. Would you mind listing the packages that you used on forums or pm. I probably won't get my stuff till june or May 26th because I am on vacation. This would help me to figure out if I had roughly enough items. I think others might appreciate that also, so they can begin to plan for future enhancement of their set-up.

These pics are utterly fantastic! Thanks, Bart!! I can hardly wait for my sets to arrive (although no shipping notice yet).
And totally agree about the use of floors for docks, brilliant!
