Wot, no Sherwood Castle ?

evil grin

Sherwood Castle, due to its venerable age, is under a conservation order, so no seiges allowed

Good one. Also nice set up.

These are fantastic. Wow.

Really nice work. I tried some conversions as a teenager. But did not have the tools, skills and resources of today.
Thanks for posting.

Love your work, as always. Really enjoy the arrows sticking out of everything -- nice touch! Cheers!

Now there's a thought, Pauls--skirmish game set in a scheduled building. Think of a hostage rescue in which you're allowed to shoot the terrorists, but lose points for bullet holes in the paneling, and Heaven forbid you break a pane of leaded glass! (Fair is fair: the terrorists are allowed to shoot your people, but dare not harm your accompanying dogs, lest PETA change sides in the propaganda war.)

Thanks All :-)
@Robert. If I did modern period stuff Id go for that but more a blue Team v red Team sort of Thing.
Ive got an idea for something similar but not so modern and not medieval either ;-)
