Elastolin/Hausser castles

The appearance of one of my castles in a recent game generated a fair bit of interest, so here are all three of  them arrayed for your delight.  While they seem to be scaled for 30mm-ish figures I bought them mostly to use with 54mm toys.  I wonder if I can ever get all three into a single game....

I've got one of those that must be close to 40 years old, I use bit for 25mm troops. As for using three at once, why not. I'm sure you could do some sort
of a three faction scenario......)

What is the collective noun for castles?
If anyone could get them all in one game you could Tim...

These are splendid - I recently acquired one of these - I think mine is an ECO, rather than a Hausser one, but it's the same kind of idea. The only historical collective noun I can find is a LINE (Torres Vedras, Siegfried, Maginot), which is disappointingly boring - there must be something better?

Nice collection Tim - will there ever be a three castle little wars game?

You'd need a lawn to give sufficent space.

There seem to be quite a few of them around - I think we need photos of your castle in action.

I'll take that as a challenge...

What about a 'Fortified Region'? Maybe a bit too 1940s.

Good lord man, your storage system must be under considerable strain!

Nice!
