Fort or Town wall - (WIP - 2)

A bit further along - decided to fill the gaps and restore the stonework as needed to the sides of the towers, matching the look of the original Playmobil walls as close as I could

Fort or Town wall - (WIP)

A bit of a bash around project is ongoing at the moment - a fortress/town wall and gate for the romans using Playmobil castle parts.

I set up the parts how I wanted to use them - wall sections with a central gate and side towers. The gateway I made some time back but tried to use it with some different wall sections - but it never looked right.
 I decided the side towers should be used as a structural core padded out with foam board as needed to have a platform and a rear walkway.

basic build done now to get the gaps suitable filled and the gateway tower having side doors and better windows.

tidying up .....

The only problem with 'bring a shield and old weapon' parties is tidying up afterwards....

[ new items:
1. Asterx & Obelix, larger figures - but OK for foreground shots
2. Eight assorted shield casualty markers
3. gallic/celtic hut - shown being modified in a previous post ]
