AwsomAlex's Modular Gondor Wall (lots of pictures)

Wed Sep 08, 2010 12:13 am

A little while ago i began work on a section of wall from minas tirith. I built it with foamboard and painted it using black and white. I then moved on to a tower to hold the trebuchets but that is still a WIP and will be completed shortly.

Image

the wall and unfinished tower

Image

downshot of walkway

Image

sir scale showing size of battlements :lol:

Image

the wall is broad enough to hold 4 models abreast

Image

Image

the tower still needs some work

Image

the pieces are completely modular

i hope you all like it and more to come! :D

Really looks good. I like the way how they look crumbly like a damaged or old Minas Tirith. Also the tiles are done really well.

Thats awesome! :D I'm really envious...I'd love to see a battle report of a siege using this, even if its just a series of photos. :)

Thank you for the warm welcome! And thanks for all the great feedback Lord Hyper and Eldarion, and I will see about pictures of the tower and wall in a siege battle report in the near future :)

and I will have more pictures of the tower when finished and brand new terrain items :D

Looks really good Alex. I added a tower on my things do list. I was so stuck on making a round tower I never thought of other shapes. Nice stuff.

thanks slythar :) and if you were thinking of using foamboard for a tower i'd highly recommend a square or hexagonal tower only because its much easier than a circular one.
Although a circular tower would probably be a fun challenge and very rewarding to complete. :P

To make a circular tower, I'd reccommend to use a large cardboard tube wityh a fairly large diameter, and then glue bricks onto it. Also, Hirst Atrs sells a nice mold to make circular towers with.

Just an update of a couple of things i have been working on, 1 of thems finished but the rest are WIPs because school has really been slowing me down unfortunately :|

Image

this one is my second modular wall piece i finished a couple of weeks ago, and I'd say it looks much better than the first.

Image

artsy shot

Image

all pieces are modular

Image

a WIP of the second trebuchet tower on the left

Image

this is one of the huge towers that flanks the gates of minas tirith, despite its complexity its going much quicker than I anticipated

Image

this tower is Very large and still needs alot of work

Image


Stay posted, more updates coming soon (along with a large gate...) ;)

Looking good! If I might ak, is that a window or a doorway on the side of the trebuchet tower sticking out past the wall on the third picture?
