Watchtower (finished)

A couple of shots of the finished watchtower

 A protective encircling pallisade needed perhaps ? hmm will have to think on best way to make one.

Roman Watchtower - work in progress (3)

A bit more work done on the watchtower. Firstly a couple of chaps to keep a look out (modified Timpo Toyway heroic romans)
Also needed a couple of braziers for signal fires. I made these from a plastic lego wheel with the rim removed and the spokes turned up - a little cotton wool with PVA in the centre; all on a wire support

The detail of the timbers in the top part of the watchtower have been added and a basic handrail

Roman Watchtower - work in progress (1)

The dumpy watchtower is taking shape....
Cut down Playmobil castle parts form the base part of the tower, with the top part made from card and foamboard. A spare roof being just right tops its off. I'm happy with the look of it so have added the supports for the walkway....
