Castle Craft Fortress Set(s) ...

Bought one of these ...

They are also selling these ... although I like the looks of the other one better ...

I like that the "Middle Ages" one has the round towers, although the "Ancient" one has what seems to be a bit more space on the top of the towers and walls for more figure placement.

From the pictures ... it looks like these models can create different castles, and this was part of the attraction for me.  If I can paint these up decently (presuming that they are just solid color plastic), and they are interchangeable parts, then this could be very good for modeling different castles/keeps in different locations.

By the way ... this was received.  If I recall end of June.  The plastics is ok, and the figures aren't bad either.  haven't done anything with it yet, just so many, many projects.

I had also ordered another castle from a different company in Russia called Umbum, and it is their "Hunting Castle".  It is made in hard cardboard like material, and comes already painted in great detail.  It'd probably be an easy put to get there project at some point, and might do this one since there's no painting involved.

However, have stuck to my guns when it comes to not ordering anything more from Russia nor China with all the election interference going on, and their completely unadulterated crud that they are doing in the world currently.

Those look really good actually. The figures with it, less... But I don't know how they look in really life?
I have an old (?) Zvezda Castle from Ring of Rule stuck away somewhere. Maybe with the new semi-lockdown around here, I can find time to paint that one up :-)
