The days are flying by and we're already on Day 8 of the '10 Days of Shiny!'

Today we move over to some new scenery releases with the first batch of Feudal Japanese buildings now available!  These are the Castle Arts range (which we purchased at the start of 2019) so we're excited to get them back into production.  John at Ironclad has been doing some tweaks and new moulds for us, so these are all new crisp castings and look great.  We've added pictures of the bare resin as well as the painted images supplied to us by Castle Arts.  Ignore the chap in the painted images, he's a Castle Arts figure and not from our new ranges!

The next batch of these should be some of the walls and fences, which we're hoping to have ready sometime in August.

There goes my bank balance.
Brilliant.

Indeed!

These do look great, and will complement the figures very nicely.

Had a better look at these, and I have one question, on the painted models there are some quite bright almost glassy red areas, what do these represent?

I've also had a look at the original Castle Arts announcement - and am quite glad that the first wave of releases is quite small, both from a painting and cost perspective!

Would be great to get the bridges and arches in one of the next waves as these have that characteristic Japanese look to them. The castle is awesome, but much less use in a game.

With a bit of modification I can also see some T34's and Shermans battling through these  :D

With the right discipline, a katana can cut through the frontal armour of a T 34.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

Those look good and I might end up going for them for my 15mm Samurai
