Default i need to make a castle for fantasy, can u help me?

hello, i am starting fantasy soon, and i know this is a 40,000 forum, but i still need a good table ready for my fantasy army.

the theme i was going for was like a large map, with a large castle somewhere in it.

by large map it is a very large map. the board I'm using is around 6x6-8x8 somewhere in between them. it is the same board i use for everything, i just put different pieces of terrain on it.

but the theme I'm going for is a foresty look with a great big high elfy looking castle. it has to look very clean and have kind of like a magicy feel to it if you know what i mean. round edges are prefered, as i hate blocky looking things. i saw the helms deep castle from LotR, and i was looking for something between that and the castle from the end of the 3rd movie.


if any one can help me out it would be appreciated

Well, I have a pretty neat castle I use for scenery...

It's a mageknight castle with interchangable walls and sections.

I'll give you a link. *searches web...lalala*

Theres also a keep and gatehouse, and you can get multiple sets and create a giant castle! It's all prepainted a very nice color too!

Hope this helps you.

MK castles are cool, prepainted, and uber customizable. Don't know if you can find them anymore, but they are pretty shway.

Makeing a castle would probally be hard and expensive and if not those 2 thing it would look like crap

Buying is the best Idea go for the mage night around the same scale and FAR FAR cheeper than GW castles....
yah go with the buy ^-^

If you are not against building it yourself. http://www.hirstarts.com/ He has molds for different types of blocks, and tutorials and parts lists the make some of the stuff in the site.

I've built castle walls and towers about 2 years ago using some very sturdy double corigated cardboard and textured paint (they still need done too... ;D ) but hirst art molds would be the best way togo once you have the molds the only expense is your plaster really
