    I tried to take some pics of my Helms Deep in a modular, playable version. Yes, we can (use Mithril figures for tabletop wargaming). The main reason for the modular construction is, that I did not have enough space to store lots of fortresses in my old “maisonry”.

    the painting of those figures seems absolutely marvellous to me … respect, Master Estel … all those tiny details, even in fabrics, so brilliantly done … respect again … thank you for providing those pics … so your Dunlendings are rather more pictish …

    Well, Estel, you have taken my idea and made it look great! I am working on the same thing, but am not ready yet. Great paint jobs too!

    Very well done Lord of the Paints! You honour your name!

    The only thing I never liked are these huge bases.
    Yes, I know, wargaming…..

    Jason, what do you mean, he took your idea? I always thought it was Tolkiens idea!:lol:

    Thank you for all your nice comments. Unfortunately I never had time to build the last and main parts of the castle and the connection between castle and walls


    @jdbrown55
    : mabye but unlikely, as I built Helms Deep some years ago :D keep on working, I am much interested how your version will look like.


    @Theobald
    : yes, pictish is what also my wife said, when she saw the miniatures the first time; and fabrics are great, damn I like to paint such things….

    My apologies Master Estel! I was just saying that I have a Helm’s Deep in the works right now. Mine may take that long too, if I don’t get anymore minis by then.:D

    Yes, Holger, I didn’t create the wonderful Helm’s Deep, but to see Master Estel’s and my castles is something to behold!;)

    Nothing to apologize, master jdbrown55, I took it as some kind of humour, something me too likes to do….


    @hsf62
    : I am sorry, my apologies, I did not want to send an “order” to you. Anyway, it would be great to oaint some of your conversions. I think Saruman would be proud seeing your work :)
