2x line towers (2pcs)

4x straight buttresses
Starter kit for our brand new range, this set includes everything you need to put a fantastic looking Built Up Area on your tables! The set is composed of self-standing elements that can be arranged in many different ways, giving you the maximum flexibility of use: as an U-shaped closed area (perfect when used against a table corner!) will cover an area of roughly 185mm x 230mm leaving a 120x120mm space inside; used in line (for example to cut a table corner or a promontory) will be approxiamtely 470mm almost half a meter long! Although designed primarily to be used in line, the walls can connect to the towers at an angle as shown here, using two of the butresses to hide the unwanted side doors, or placed to the sides of the tower using the buttress to close the wall section as shown here. You may want to cut the buttress shorter to use them in this way, and we have provided you with a spare pair just for that.

These modules are designed specifically to be compatible with standard 15mm basing and can confortably accomodate a square 40mm wide base on the top platform of each tower, and up to three 40mm wide and 20mm deep bases on each wall rampart.
All the models in this set are in Mycenaean style, which makes them particularly suitable not only for the city of Troy, but for all ancient Greek City States and colonies, including those in Southern Italy, Black Sea and North Africa, and for cities in Macedonia, Crete, Cyprus, Egypt, Assyria, Phoenician colonies including Carthage, and all cities and states in present-day Lebanon, Israel and Jordan! It is based on the latest archaeological evidence and it is a very realistic and highly detailed reproduction accurately scaled in 1:100. It can be added to any ancient town or village around the Mediterranean and in the Near East from the beginning of history well into the Classical age. The set represent well over 10% discount compared to the same items bought as separate items. Require basic assembly. Supplied unpainted.
