Fenris Peel Tower
Peel (or Pele) towers were tower houses or small fortified keeps along the Northern Marches in Britain on the border between Scotland and England. This area was the Wild North, the land of the Border Reivers (who gave us the modern English word 'blackmail' - Reiv means to take by force) where neither London nor Edinburgh's writ ran very far. The zone was subject to constant raiding and was controlled by the Lowland Clans and Border Families who built fortified homes for themselves.
This is a fair representation of just the sort of Peel Tower that would be found on the edge of a Kingdom, around the Frozen City, or any lawless region.
The model above is new and from Fenris Games here in Medway. It can be had for the very reasonable price of twenty of our English Pounds.
The tower "120mm tall, 80mm diameter, hollow-cast resin and detailed with random stone blocks, timber floor supports, and single reinforced door and rooftop hatch .... an ideal objective or defensive point for any number of fantasy or historical gaming."
Looks particularly useful for Frostgrave or, indeed, any fantasy skirmish game.
