CIT02B 15mm Any Period Beacon Turret in Fortified Plaza on cliff outcrop.
An "off table edge" encampment for DBA DBM DBR HOTT armies representing a fortified plaza on a rock outcrop with cliffs to three sides and caves in two of the cliff faces (for fantasy army HOTT camps).
The cliffs and walls are heavily textured making them easy to paint. The hill slopes are moulded with a smooth surface for gamers to "dress" with their favourite style, to match their other terrain pieces.
The turret is a basic round tower with external ladder to the low-parapet roof top, where there is a signal / light beacon.
This model is ideal for any period or theatre, and makes a good gun position as well as a look-out style encampment, or a fortified camp for Ancient, Medieval, or Fantasy Armies. The two cave entrances in the cliffs facilitate use as an Orc or Goblin stronghold in HOTT games. It is using the tower top "B" from the GHS-T1 Harbour Set, however, adding the tower tops restricts the model to use with 15mm figures due to scaling features on the towers.
In keeping with the original concept for DBA DBM DBR HOTT encampments, it is designed to be representational, rather than fully modelled true to scale.
Height = 65mm
Depth = 85mm
Length = 95mm
Wargaming 15mm 18mm
Railway Models TT-gauge
Scale Modelling 1:120 1:100
The model has been designed for modellers to use their imagination, and modify to create variety.
Example projects could be, to add -
* Awnings over the plaza, or bodies / debris outside the caves
* Fenced or walled outer perimeters
* Add stakes etc to the lower perimeter of the hill slopes
and many other personalised modifications that would allow more than one of these to appear different to each other, creating variety on the table top.
Painting the model in a grey "stone" finish makes it suitable for mountainous & arable areas.
Painting it in sandy "adobe" finish converts it to sandstone for desert and arid areas.
NOTE - The sample model for the photo of the citadel base, has been painted with sandstone cliffs and granite walls to show the detail and the colour options - this is an un-natural configuration and not recommended for the table. Both should be the same.
|These photos show the unbased style of the unpainted cliff-base model supplied.|
This model is particularly suitable for railway modellers to use in their layouts - either towards the back horizon (distant feature) or in conjunction with other citadel and ruin buildings from our various series.
