Viking Fort Work in Progress

Playing Saga has made me want to make some Dark Ages terrain. I've never attempted terrain boards and such, but plunged in on the weekend with the start of a Viking/generic dark ages fort. The twice-poxed MDF base is already warping a little (which I thought they weren't supposed to do?), but otherwise things are proceeding nicely. I will be happy to finish whittling bits of dowel for the pallisade though. Here's how it's looking so far:


  1. Looking good at this stage. You might want to paint the other side of the MDF, that will help with the warping. Even just painting it with water works, doesn't have to be paint.

  2. Looking good.

    For making pallisades you could use Wooden Cocktail / Kebab Skewers which come in various lengths.

  3. Looks good. Keep us posted on how it turns out

  4. Nicely done - a great start!


  5. A great start - simple techniques for a very effective outcome. A few ladders about the place and a platform over the gate and it will be good to go!
