For $7,50 this is a great model. Some options and extra's but most of all it looks amanzing! Takes quite some time and a bit of skil, but so rewarding. Despite the looks this one is not very hard to build. Instructions are clear and the design of some parts, like the stairs and crennelations, is very smart.

This is a beautiful model and great fun to build. It is however not for someone who has never built cardstock models before, go download his freebies and then when you feel comfortable, dive right in! This is not a difficult model to build, it just takes a little patience to ensure you don't put something on the wrong way, like I did the first time I built it, that being said, this model make a great center piece on the gaming table!

Really a beautiful prop! this tower is a impressive piece to put on the table that is sure to make your players aghast.

It is a little harder to build than the rest of Fat Dragon Games models, that is sure, but the result is worth the work. Don't be afraid of building the 3D crenelations. Yes, there is a 2D version that is much easier to build, but the 3D ones make this piece stand out in a unique way. I have to say that this model isn't for the first time builder, for that go to the Guard Tower from the very same Fat Dragon. Once you have build one model like that you already should have an idea of how to approach a model like this.

A tip: I make all my models reinforcing them by gluing the sheets to cardboard from cereal boxes. The models build that way are resistant to whatever can happen to them on the game table.

Wow, this tower is legendary! I deliberated over this one for a long time, at least 2 months; I wish I had purchased it sooner. I really like how this tower looks like the human defensive tower in the World of Warcraft. The lowest floor flare and the buttresses combine to make a very tough looking foundation. I could see this being the tower of a reclusive mage, the lone defense of a remote frontier settlement, or part of a kingdom's defensive border. This badboy is physically sturdy, too. The bottom floor with its double wall and buttresses could probably win a high school engineering fair prize. The tower takes about 3 or 4 sheets of card stock per floor, which is reasonable given the final model's detail. The instructions are fairly amazing, especially compared to some other paper modeling instructions out there. They are very step by step, slowing down for the hairy parts and completely illustrated with photographs. If you are thinking about this one at all, I highly recommend it. The price seemed a bit steep to me, which is why I hesitated for so long, but after biting the bullet I am very pleased with the bang to buck ratio. This does include the ruined upper levels, as well. Also, while labor intensive, the 3D machiolations are totally worth it.
