Damaged Wall Sections



More about recording progress than a bona fide post, I am happy to announce that not only have the missing, damaged dry stone wall sections be rediscovered, but they have also been completed!  They are the companion pieces to the other sections that were showcased here and are once again from 'Warlord Games'.


Perhaps unsurprisingly, given that they hailed from the shortcut emporium that is 'Warlord Games' they were not the best of casts, but any air bubbles were easily filled and of course they are a perfect match for the other sections; this been the case it was a simple task to replicate the paint scene and foliage used.


Regardless of what I might think about their production standards, 'Warlord Games' do produce some lovely toys and these are no exception.  As with the previous sections they come with identical corner sections, which allow me some flexibility when setting up on the table*, although as I write this I have just realised that there is no gate section! 


*fat chance of that happening any time soon!

  1. Nice stuff! Too bad that Warlord production quality is sometimes subpar compared to their sculpting quality. Same with the Perry Bros... Still far from the worst stuff I've seen.

    1. I had forgotten that I moan about the Perry moulding as well, good point. They do come up rather nicely, so ultimately happy to do a little bit of filling.

  3. Very nice. All that is missing is some ranged units peering from behind the damaged sections of the wall. :)

  4. You could be in the west of Ireland. They have no gates. When it comes to moving livestock, they kick over a section of wall, let the cows through, and then rebuild it. No mortar in the joints.

  5. Splendid job on rescuing these. The detail is nice on the wall, just a shame on the large unsightly piece of resin attached to it

    1. Thank you Mark, the base is a worry, but I'm hopeful that I've disguised enough of it so that it blends in nicely with the board.

  8. Looking good. You could always knock together a quick gate to go between two corner pieces.
