Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Citadel castle walls

My final painted miniature update come in the form of these two wall sections for the classic Citadel Castle.

If I recall correctly it was released during the 5th edition of Warhammer as part of the Warhammer Siege supplement. The boxed castle contained four towers, three wall sections and a gate section. I decided to buy two additional walls to have the option of either a rectangular castle on the table, or just a wider castle to occupy a long table edge.

Here is the wall section with some 4th and 5th edition miniatures on the walls.

With the two walls, we are there:

I’ll be honest; I don’t exactly know what I feel right now. I have had unpainted miniatures since 1993. I have had full painted armies and even game systems before, but never a fully painted collection.

      I know! It’s sad but I can’t think past some Horus Heresy figures as a reward! I’m going to hold off though.

    Those are nice walls! πŸ™‚ But the big achievement is having nothing left to paint (which some could interpret as bad planning on your part of course) so well done! I’ll maybe have some beer to celebrate!

    Many congratulations! It’s been a lot of fun to watch you progress through the trays (when while I increase the size of my own Pile of Shame) so in a way I’m almost sad that you have reached the end of this journey. Still, I’m interested to see what happens next.

      I will put up a picture of the final tray tomorrow, and I am putting a lot of thought into what comes next – I will definitely be staying in the hobby!

    Great looking pair of walls, Dave, but more importantly a huge congratulations for achieving the unachievable. It’ll certainly be interesting to see where you go from here…

      My hope is that future purchases of miniatures will be assembled and painted before I buy the next lot, to stop the pile from building up again. We’ll see.

    The castle walls look great. But I think Az nailed it by commenting on how you’ve ‘achieved, the unachievable’! Too many of us bloggers it seems like just that, yet here you’ve shown that it can be done! I know that just following you has made me rethink my own collection from time to time as well. Cheers Dave!
