Scream's fort was really inspiring, and i had a post exams weekend off, so id thought id have a go. Don't have room at make it as a single peice so its of wall/tower blocks for easy storage.

Work in progress, entirely made from cereal packets (which ive now run out of...construction paused till i get more) :'(

Need 1 more tower, 1 more wall, a couple of damaged towers and walls, lots of detailing (including 32 statues for the towers...)

70-75cm diameter depending on tower placement, small doors in gate allow 'normal' traffic, whole gate only opened for SHT/titans.

Wow !!! Glad I don't have to assault that !! Very Nice work !! Good thinking on the doors too ... I've seen the same thing on aircraft hangers. Looks pretty impregnable !! Will have to Nuc'm from orbit ... it's the only way to be sure ! ;D

thanks for the comments, small update, WIP on the first ruined wall section is underway.

For some reason it looks like it's been 'melted' rather than blasted here, but the filler has more texture than the photo shows :-\

I am sure there is a weapon, in the Epic universe, which melts walls by easy ;)
so I see no problem with that
Looks really great Apoc
Do you intend to replace every section with a damaged one?

Cheers. No, i currently only plan to make 2 ruined walls and 1 ruined tower.

Also, @ Chroma, those rules look good, very easy to use with the existing game mechanics, but given that there is no 'official' (eg GW) source for walls etc it seems a bit prescriptive to give exact length/hight measurements?

The rules are just basically guidelines, boils down to 2DC per 5cm of length of wall; there will be more detail in the EPIC: Total War supplement, including adding weapons and shield generators and all kinds of other fun stuff! *laugh*

Like your ruined wall... looking foward to seeing it finished!

All of the basic parts made now (2 normal wall sections + 1 ruined tower made but not pictured). Have added 8 of the 24 doors needed so far, then onto statues... ??? ...then painting :D

As for plans, here are .pdf s of my 'working' plans, which may or may not be useful, if i get the time i might go through and make them more use a friendly. Plans are simple for fast assembly and parts are positioned to be efficiently cut. No gate plan file as those are a real mess.

At some point i will actually take photos in daylight/with proper lighting, but until then: :D

*Edit* Template files re-saved to be far smaller and combined into a single .pdf ;)
