Siege towers are a main stay of medieval siege warfare, allowing the invaders to safely approach a castle’s walls and then allowing them easy access to the ramparts. Siege towers were made out of many things in the past, but now Sally 4th have made one using mdf.
This siege tower stands at a height of 220mm and is suitable for use with 28mm miniatures. It has a number of a levels for miniatures to stand upon, as well as a hinged ramp and ladder.
Sally 4th says that this laser cut mdf is easy to put together, needing only PVA Woodwork Adhesive.
A siege tower is a relatively simple design, but its inclusion can add to both historical and fantasy siege games. It is easy enough to come up with a set of rules for the towers and their slow advance puts pressure on the defending player, forcing them to react to the threat, rather than sitting back and just releasing volley after volley of arrows.
Fancy sallying forth in Sally 4th’s siege tower?
