Paint Bench: Mage Knight castle repaint Finished!

I bought a few Mage Knight Castle parts way back to use for my under ground dwarf holt, or whatever. I was not impressed with the paint jobs at all, so I decided to paint them more in a warhammer paint scheme.  I only wanted the main gates and a few of the wall sections, but did not buy any more. They are expensive. But I must say when re-painted they look out standing. 

Here is what they look like when you pull them out of the package. 

Here is how I repainted them here and below.

I still have to finish up on a few parts, but they are pretty much done. I plan on using them mostly in my fantasy battles. Mainly Dwarf Holts in Warhammer.

Paint Bench: 28mm ramp to Bridge

I bought this bridge to go over a canyon I can make on my table, but had to make some modifications to it. I also decided to make a ramp to it as well, so that I can use it with a hilltop that I use for putting castles on. The castle looks great on the hill, but there was no way to get up to it, so I had to make a modular ramp. I used my Hotwire Foam Factory tools and cut a ramp out of foam. 

I have it made, but I am waiting on some paint in the mail.........

It will look better when its painted to match the bridge, no pink bridge for me.

Here it is finished up. It is not exactly perfect, but it works. Eventually I will use it on a mountain or hill for a few castles. 

Just an idea what it looks like with a castle on the hill.

I can use the bridge or just the ramp

The Hill terrain I made for a Castle.
