Dark Age FORTE Bundle J050
The building will be supplied as a flat pack kit
The palisade was one of the most important forms of defence and, as such, its history dates back to the Hillforts of the Iron and Bronze Ages and the Forts of the Roman Empire! Palisades were made of heavy timbers and later became a feature of the Norman Motte and Bailey Castles built by the Normans.
The purpose of the palisade was to protect the interior of a fortification. A fence of pales forming a defence barrier or fortification – a pale was a fence made with a stake or pointed stick which enclosed the area. The Norman Motte and Bailey Castle tower was surrounded by a rampart and palisade. The wooden Palisade was the early forerunner of the massive stone Curtain Walls which replaced them as they were subject to rot when built on an earth base and could be destroyed by fire.
An evolution of the Saxon hall, Norman manor houses were adapted by Norman lords settling in England, and being invaders there was sometimes a need for them to be heavily fortified.

FIGURES AND ACCESSORIES SHOWN ARE NOT INCLUDED.
We get asked a lot about the detail on the buildings and whether you lose it when it’s painted. However, the buildings take paint very well and are suitable for washes or dry brushing to get the desired affect and bring the detail to life.
28mm figures shown for scale purposes only. This pack is just one of our range of building kits suitable for 28mm wargaming and for dioramas. The buildings come flat packed and can be assembled and ready for use in no time at all. They are made of laser cut MDF which has been been textured with floorboards / planking and tiles where appropriate. The MDF wood is unpainted. The roofs are removeable to allow you to place models inside the buildings.
We suggest that you use PVA glue to permanently fix the building together. Painting is optional, we think that a quick wash of ink will be enough for most gamers but of course, you can add more detail if you prefer.
If you need glue for your models, I sell Revell Contacta Adhesive, Revell Professional polystyrene glue and a range of super glues and other adhesives. They can be found in the ‘Arcane scenery’ and ‘Glues, Fillers, Paints and Tools’ categories of my shop.
