28mm Samurai Castle: My favourite piece of scenery and most expensive!

My favourite wargaming period is Samurai during the Sengiku period known as "The Age of Wars","The Age of Civil Wars" and "The Age of the Warring States" and my ultimate purchase several years ago was this painted Samurai Castle from http://www.adolforamos.com/ and it involved me selling my collection of early imperial romans and germans to the evil Postie to fund the purchase.

Its not perfect,the paintjob is a little poor in places, some of the walls are slighty taller than others and if I could I would have liked more walls but when it goes with all the other samurai buildings and scenery and hundreds of figures its pure eye candy.I hope to get back into the period and put on some games, what is your favourite piece of scenery and not neccesarily your most expensive or what is on your wishlist that all wargamers have(written or virtual).




Would like something in 28mm scale looking like the next two pictures, only a lottery win away.

  1. Excellent looking castle. Buying painted scenery is an expensive exercise. I bought several 28mm Games Workshop castle walls and a Turreted gate for a D&D game I ran several years ago. But I painted them myself to keep the cost down. Here's a link to a picture of the finished setup. And from the other side.

    OK, not as cool as your castle but still my best bit of scenery. It made for a very dramatic end to a long campaign arc.
