Number of Towers: ten, Number of Levels: twelve
Notes: I wanted to make a large detailed castle that would be close in scale to a real castle. Lots of levels and towers were also planned to make the castle more interesting to look at and hard to capture. I would not want to attempt to take this castle without at least three times the defenders' troop values. More pictures of the inside buildings and little details will be added in a few weeks. The doors and large window, by Fortress Figures all have a lip on the back side that makes them easy to use with this type of construction. Just cut the hole and insert, the frame will cover the rough spots. I highly recommend them for your modeling projects.
