Pokesay Castle 5 - main range of buildings

Hoorah the main range of buildings done. A good while spent will foam board; cardboard; thick paper and printed paper sheets; I really enjoyed the challenge of making this range of buildings.

Firstly a view of the outfacing side -

And the side facing the courtyard ...

Now to get on and finish the castle's keep.

Artillery - big guns

Comparison of the Sash and Sabre 40mm Saker (40ECWE2) and the Call-to-Arms 54mm ECW cannon. I had thought the Call-to-Arms cannon would be too big for my 40mm figs, while I was on holiday I found one in a model shop and bought it for comparison purposes.

Side view:

Front View:
As you can see compared to the Sash and Sabre saker it is larger but not too big. It could easily be used as a culverin or for a siege gun.

Artillerie on the move

Finished the limbers, a couple of guns on the move. The horses are little to tall; but otherwise OK.
For Pokesay Castle I've nearly finished the main range of buildings, theres a door and some steps to add - photo to follow later when completed. The Keep is ready for finishing, but it needs some changes to make it look a bit chunkier.
