Château Fort du 12e Siècle, 1/76 / 1/87 Maquette Usborne

Usborne models of the castle, cathedrale, town et village have matching bases which may be placed adjacent to eachother to create a larger display model. Town et village models may be used as stand-alone wargame models instead of fixing them on the base permanently. Paper cut-out models are a cheap et readily available source of scenery for wargames et dioramas a l’échelle 1/72. Paper models are frequently based on famous buildings, they tend to be well researched et accurately recreated in miniature. Minor modifications et conversions of paper models are easy to do, wall section, doors, windows et other accessories may be swapped between buildings to create greater variety.

Possibilités de Conversions

  • One of the wall sections could be breached to provide a possible point of assault. Rubble from the destroyed wall might have fallen into the moat, acting as a bridge.
  • The configuration of walls et towers may be changed to create variations of the basic castle model.
  • The gatehouse et wall sections may be used pour représenter murailles médiévales.
  • Lift-off roofs et interior floor sections may be added to provide figurine access to buildings et towers.

Usborne’s Château Fort médiéval is an excellent model, full of accurate historical detail. Walkways on castle walls et towers may be used to display figurines et there is enough space on the castle grounds for a small diorama display. The model is too large to be used in a grand-tactical level wargame, but joueurs d’escarmouche et de rôle will have a lot of fun exploring the terrain as they fight for possession of the castle keep.
