Surprise watchtower

19 posts in this topic

My watchtower its very simple and best fist in open spaces like the surroundings of our capital.

Made from stone and wood, his apparently weak style would make it the first target for our enemies, unluckily for them as the watchtower holds a nasty surprise inside.

The engineer corps had enhanced this watchtower with two swing walls that go down in case of attack and shows the little surprise, a cannon that will sweep any enemy that comes in range.

Apart from the cannon the tower is well defended by a small detachment of the Guilds army formed by a captain, two spearmen and three crossbowmen that will make our enemies to pay high any attempt of passing through it.

And if the guards have to warn any allies in the zone, what´s best that a cannon firing sound.

EDIT:

It appears that the reliabilty of the cannon it´s not good so we have been having minor problems with it (not Mitgardian was seriously injured during testing):

So in order to avoid future surprises we´ve replaced the cannon for a crossbow machine, It´s less noisy, more lethal and more reliable:

Long live Mitgardia!!!

I love it!!! But I thought we decided no cannons?

Sorry but the tower was posted before Sirens-Of-Titan posted about the gunpowder, so I didn´t know. :sad:

Probably about 50/50 that they blow the top off the tower !!

I like those odds!

I like this tower even more.

Nice combination of simple symmetrical pattern with a few things breaking it up.

well done!

Actually he said it a long time ago, but the tower really is awesome, we can pretend its a ballista!

Well If the rules say something about not using cannons and my guild leader says so, I will try to change the cannon for some machinery with arrows (although I´m not the only one who has a cannon tower :tongue: )

That remembers me of my first Battle Master Game, on the first round playing with empire the cannon blown up and destroyed itself and a quarter of the army it had round it. :classic:

Excellent! Now we're talking hearty Mitgardian ingenuity! :thumbup:

The pictures are excellent, I'm happy it worked out so well! Keep on building and Mitgardia will be the Guild to top them all! :grin:

Fantastic, but don't rely on gunpowder, at this time it is too unreliable and I think it kinda spoils the whole Historica thing when people use cannons. Still a fantastic watchtower though.

The extra photographs showing the replacement of the cannon was inspired - fantastic! :laugh:

I really liked the groundwork in this MOC, which was simple but worked well. The defence system of the walls on hinges is a novel idea, and I like the bricks you've used to build the tower with as well.
