Impressive fortress! Size, details, no default. Compliments.
Lucky you are to have such a father!

Very very cool.

It's just such a shame that GW's siege rules are so inadequate for using castles in a game :(

Extremely cool! Is that a kit, scratch built or what?

It's really great.

As to the siege rules....seems like you could use the siege rules from an older edition with a minimal amount of modification, I would think.

Wow, that fortress is really awesome! How long did it take you to build it and how did you do it? Are those hirstart bricks?

The models are also great, I especially like the hydra with its dark colour scheme, but put next to that breathtaking fortress, nothing else would probably be noticed too much.

Thanks guys, I´m happy that you all like the fortress.
The fortress took us like 2 years to be completed, but only working in it some weekends, I mean, there were some months that we didn´t do anything on the fortress, but other months that we were all the weekend working in it. It´s made by cardboard and polyestirene. I have tons of photos of the process so if you want to see them just let me know and i´ll upload some of them.

That fortress is outstanding. Some parts of it look very similar to the GW fortress they made a long time ago, that I have, while others look 100% completely original. It all comes together very well. Definitely a fan!

Yes indeed, I have previously, and the problem is they are exceedingly weak! :)

If you have time, please do update the pictures, with commentary if possible. I am very inretested in the process.

Good stuff all around.

Would like to see more about building that fortress.

I'm really digging the fall foliage, what did you use?

The fall foliage is something I bought in Goblin Trader, a shop here in Madrid, Spain. It comes in two circular boxes and it´s pretty cheap, and with these 2 boxes you have enough foliage for 3 or 4 armies.

Here you have more details of the process of building the fortress. I just upload some photos of the main tower because all the other towers and walls are the same. Hope you like it. and of course, if you have any question just feel free to ask and i´ll give you a response when I can.

Wow, that's even more detailed than it seemed at first and I didn't even consider that easily possible! Thank you very much for the in progress photos and once more, you have me completely stunned. My admiration for you and your dad, you¨re both amazing!

Amazing work! That fortress is brilliant, well done! Also, would you mind sharing what paints you used for your paint scheme on the models themselves? I'd love to try and emulate it.

WOW

Thank you.

Is each stone on a wall an individual piece of foam? Or did you glue sheet foam to the wall then cut between the stones?

We made some lines of stone, and then cut between stones, and then glue to the wall. I don´t know if you understand what i mean, my english is not perfect lol.
But there are some places where each stone is an individual piece.for example in the corners.
