Bro. What you want is the Simba Superplay Castle. It's super-cheap, crude, and requires a little work - it's a kids' toy - but they're selling for £14 in the post-Christmas sales and are hardly expensive at full price.

http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=85231.0 has some discussion and photos.

Yes, it's basic, but you can get it to tabletop standard in no time at all, and you pay less for the whole thing - 6 towers, four wall joint extender things, wall segments and a functioning drawbridge on the gate, and a keep - than you would pay for a single segment of GW wall.

Here's where I got mine: http://m.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_171050908599_-1?m-referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lead-adventure.de%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D85231.15

The tower tops will comfortably fit four 20mm-based figures and look decent, although you have to overlap bases a bit if you're using 25mm. The included figures are predictably shit and 40mm or 50mm, but the towers and walls work fine with Warhammer.

You may want to cover the lower arrow-slits as part of the touch-up, but they're still relatively high. The towers are identical on all four sides - the walls hook (firmly but removably) into the arrow slits.

And here's a basic out-of-the-box photo with (I think) some GW figs for scale.

Photo's from dicebaglady, so hopefully it'll be showing up in games at shows around the UK when she has time to make it look more special.

>>44687383
Buy whatever castle toyset in any of the local stores and deck it out.
>>
>>44687990
can't say I dig the smaller towers

The size of the courtyard compared to the old classic fortress is pretty sweet, though.
>>
>>44688897
Yeah, the towers aren't huge, but for the price...

they're also easy to stick a little, slightly-raised platform in that'll get you a 50-55mm square that's still below the top of the battlements - that'll fit a small cannon if you try.

That GW fortress is great if you can get it, but pretty damn pricey these days.
>>
>>44688897
Last time the GW was in stock it was about twice the full rrp of this one, over four times the current price.

Still want one though.

I know that this isn't what you asked for, but have you considered making your own castle?Go to your local lumber place/hardware, and get some insulation foam. It's cheap, easy to use, and forms reasonably solid structures that are also light enough for transport. Assemble that shit into a castle. Score the structure with a toothpick. If you have a nearby model train shop, consider getting some of their plaster rock molds to decorate the castle's base. Add ladders, roofs, etc with balsa wood. Decorate with leftover sprue components, and add any additional details you require. (such as vines or whatever) Then paint! Enjoy your unique castle, I guarantee you'll like it better than any plastic kit. After all, you'll have free reign to make the walls as thick as you like, the doorways as tall as you like, and the scale will be sure to match your little men perfectly.
