As requested, here are some photo's of the Stone Keep Tower included with the BattleMasters game:
And here is a photo showing the height of the tower, approx. 6-inches:
Here is a link to a slideshow of photo's of the Towers, and some mostly painted figures from the Lionheart boardgame, as well as some of the Heavy Knights from the BattleMasters game. Here are a couple of figure photo's to show how I converted the bronze-colored plastic Humans, into Bronze Platemail armored, Hobgoblins.
I am an 'army painter', so my painting is basic block painting, followed by The Dip. I paint for numbers, with a quality which "looks good enough to game with, at arm's length," period. I passed the mid-century mark, for age, and I want to game with my toys before I die, and my family pitches them all in the trash... Your style is your own, as is mine. 'Nough said.
All of the horses, in the Lionheart game, are equipped with full Plate Barding. Also, all of the horses are the same for both the silver Knights, and the bronze Knights. The rest of their gear is identical, as well. The squares on the grassland mat, are 1-inch. The MK Human figure is on a 1-inch square base; the Knight's base is 1-inch by 2-inches. Cheers!
Just won a Lionheart minis bag (quite full) plus rulebook for $8.15 shipped. Great deal! The mounted knights seem to be the real deal and the footman have alot of charm. I am rather attracted to semi-junky minis. I sold pretty much all my Bones as I found the sculpts to be rather off-putting. With True Legends/Guardian Knights/Bulk MK and other odds and end, my armored dudes is well well well covered.
erho: Too many minis, not enough time... Am I right?

sgtslag: If we could just do away with this whole "work" thing, and supporting ourselves, financially, and otherwise... Life always seems to get in the way of gaming. AHHH!!!...

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
