One of four books in our Tabletop Battles series. In Medieval Castle we show you how to make a medieval siege tower and battering ram, and prepare for a full-scale tabletop battle. Models also include a mini-castle with working portcullis, watchtower and other fortifications. Combatants can deploy some of the weapons they have already made, either defensively via the castle walls or as attackers attempting to storm the ramparts. To your stations, take aim … and launch your missiles!
