For whatever reason, my hobby mojo has been a bit lacking here of late and I haven't really been motivated to paint/build anything. So...I figured that maybe just picking up a random project from way out of left field, and painting on that instead might just be the jolt to the system that I need. Thus, I found myself working the walls that go with my long forgotten Stirland Watchtower.
|There's no initials more deserving of that tombstone than those of the game itself!|
Ah yes, good ol' Warhammer Fantasy, may it rest in peace. I guess at this point I ought to go ahead and start working on the base for it, though that'll make storage a bit of a problem. Indeed, I think that that's why I never finished this project in the first place.
|I'm pretty sure this was the layout I had had for this.|
|When finished it certainly won't be as grandiose a structure as Neverness' Death Castle. Rather this is just a humble watch tower.|
|The overhead view.|
The 'L' on the roof, visible only to overhead flying heroes mounted on dragons and other such creatures, mark this out as one of the watch towers which guard the approaches to the city of Liecheburg. This forlorn city is situated on Stirland's western frontier, bordering the haunted hills and beyond those, the accursed realm of Slyvania.
|I love these old maps! You can still find them here.|
Painting these was a fun little afternoon diversion. They're now done for the most part, only needing a few little bitz and bobs painted up prior to gluing onto the base. Once complete, maybe I can use the tower for games of Mordheim or something, as that's just about all the painted remnants of my Stirland army would be fit for these days.
