Looks really cool.

But moreover I was quite surprised to see large round crenellations. :o
I did not know that they exist.
They are not offered in the webstore - or did I overlooked them?
You are right, other than the big castles, the Watchtower might be the cheapest path to getting some.
I ma be blind, but after searching all the bigger castles I still did not see any large curved crenellations in the entire web shop. There are of course large round „battlements“, how DF calls them, but these are a totally different beast. I like crenellations much more than battlements, in general, because they are not so huge. And as Niando I was surprised to see those on the pictures.

I just ordered a watchtower, today and also this has no crenellations on the pieces list. Only battlements.

So I strongly support the question: where do I get those large round crenellations???
I got mine during the KS/Pledgemanager.

They are a VERY overlooked piece. I like them a lot more than the large battlements, which fall apart constantly if the table is bumped.

So you suggest that they are not available anymore, at all? They were only in the PM of KS4? That would make me sad, because I also would prefer them so much over the battlements.

It is really a shame that I didn‘t get know DF before KS5 :(

I'm not necessarily suggesting that. As the person who posted them originally on this thread, I was simply letting you know where I purchased them. I am not sure if they are still made, although it appears from comments in this thread that they are not available in the webstore currently.

Thank you, @Talistran. Maybe there is hope, then :)

I got a couple of sets of those, either from the KS or when they stocked the store right after the kickstarter (or both since I have 2). Send an email to customer service asking if/when. Last fall I asked about Straight Battlements and I was told they would be in the big restock late spring early summer... So they may have an estimate of when they are coming.

Also, from the restock announcement, "Also included is some very limited reserve stock that we've transferred from the factory into the US warehouse." I think those were marked on the restock list as "very few." So several items that were not scheduled to be restocked right now got a little bump from stock the factory had setting around.

I seem to remember reading or hearing that there is a *minimum* of six months turn around from order to delivery of dwarvenite... depending on what the factory already has going, and holidays, and what not... and at least a year for resin sets. Imagine trying to predict what you will need in a six months, or a year.

They have had a lot of trouble keeping that set in stock.

I have two Watchtowers. As standalone I like the battlements but in castle builds I have always the feeling that they are to large and don't fit into the castle.
Furthermore you can only put them on solid and arrow walls. LED Walls and Place Walls is quite difficult to put the battlements on top.

I wrote an email to the customer support and I'm going to post the answer for everyone else interested in the answer.

Hi DF Fans,

I asked the customer support about any ideas/plans to put the lagre crenellations into the webstore.
I asked furthermore, if we get the small tower pieces as well again.

They answered very quickly. :)

The answer was that nothing ist scheduled/planned yet. The factory capacity in the near future is assigned very much to Hellscape and Pathfinder.
But they said as well that they "pass on the request..., so we can keep in mind when we place the next order."

So let's cross fingers to be able to buy the large crenellations on day...

I checked earlier and discovered I ordered (2) large tower crens. Just need color on them still. ;)
