We recently saw that Fenris Games were working on the latest in dwarf communications with their Firetower, ready to light the beacons around the kingdom. Now that tower has been released for pre-order, standing proud upon its hill even as its architecture suggests it could fall at any second.
The Firetower is a rickety old stone beacon tower sat atop a small hill. While not exactly what I would imagine when I think of dwarf architecture, it does rather speak of an out of the way location where all manner of danger might befall. Like the tower collapsing on you.
The top of the tower has been designed so that different options can be used for it, rather than just the beacon. In the above picture, we see it turned into something of a minaret.
The Firetower can be bought as part of a set, along with a small hill base for it to stand upon.
This little hillock can also be bought separately and should provide archers with a superb vantage point.
Personally, I think a piece like Fenris’ Firetower is a great addition to a tabletop as it will allow for some cool scenarios, where players must reach the beacon in time to light it and signal for reinforcements.
Can you think of some scenarios using Fenris’ tower?
