G'day everyone!


I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips from where to look for 6/10mm scale castles. I've tried to keep my out out for cheap Fish Tank castles aswell, as those usually are great for the scale and are dirt cheap.


I know Leven Miniatures lets you buy pieces to form your own 6mm castle, https://www.levenminiatures.co.uk/pages/castle.htm

Also Sally 4th produces 10mm MDF castles https://wargamesbuildings.co.uk/Castles/10mm-Scale-Castles


Thank you in advance!

Build your own out of card/paper?

Foldup Paper Models - walls, towers and a gatehouse available. Made for ~28mm, so a bit of re-scaling is required (print 4-up, maybe?).

Just wondering how those will hold up to the quality standard as I'm using resin cast 6mm buildings.

I wanted a 6mm Sumerian fortified town, so I made one .... out of Pendraken bases, some grey board and various Leven and Hovels resin buildings.

The kallistra castle is nice. It is big though, with lots of wall sections, and towers to go around a keep. It works well at a 1:1 figure scale, if you want something more representative for a mass battle game, then it might not be right. But if you want something to occupy a big chunk of the table, then its great.

This is parts of the Kallistra castle, occupying a good 3 square of the table.

Ithoriel that looks great!

I do think that maybe 10mm castles are a tad big indeed. Especially the fortifications.

Have anyone of you got any experience with the railroad scenery?
