I already have some mantlets and ladders from a previous game so I've supplemented them with siege towers and catapults. More details below.....
These are constructed from 6mm beading obtained cheaply from the local DIY store. Each is about
100mm long by 60mm wide. The card on the corners adds some strength to the but-joints and also allows some detailing later.
Finally they are painted with acrylics, which really bring them to life.
The siege towers were a slightly more involved build. I started with 3 sides made from card with reinforcements that would support the floors - vital to make the structures rigid. I went for 120mm wide and 190mm high, with space to accommodate three standard Kings of War infantry regiments or Armati units.
