Way on back in the deep caves

The Arcane Ruins have an extra skulls sprue. That would have been nice here.
The Fences and Walls set is skull-free.
I dont mind Empire buildings but I would like to see some more generalised houses/shops. Enough with the skulls already.

This terrain inspires me to like their older range of scenery simply out of spite for the new stuff.

Honestly without the two-inch skulls on the side of that watchtower I would buy it as generic terrain but unfortunately GW feel the need to watermark every new piece of terrain that comes out with massive bloody skulls. That is all the skulls are: watermarks.

Yep. I bought the Skullvane Manse thinking I could probably just sand down or cover up most of the skulls and have an interesting terrain piece that was a bit different. I knew it would be a fair bit of work... But as soon as I opened up the box and saw just how much surface area the skulls covered, and how they were just effin everywhere, even more than I had seen in photos. Well, it's still in the box.

Now seeing this tower made up of recycled parts has confirmed my feeling that I won't be getting anymore GW terrain unless there's a major change in their design department.

Guys, you got it all wrong. All that is on the tower is needed. Skulls on the side to say "THIS IS GAMES WORKSHOP!!!!!" and the skeleton on top is the most important part. They want fantasy to have more flying monsters and to help you in the confusion of where to route them to this is the fantasy air traffic control .

Nope, although less than usual I admit:

Yep next wfb army book "warhammer armies: towers with loads of skulls on" I'm guessing this new tower would be one of the core choices?

Having looked at it over and over again it isn't that bad, it's just enough with the skulls already!

Also a question to GW designers:- do all other warhammer races live out in the open with nothing more than a newspaper over their heads? Also does everyone in the empire live in some kind of skull infested tower? If so do regular houses appear creepy to the tower dwellers???

The waving skeleton at the top is more than ridiculous. Who the hell thought that would be a good idea? Marketing should be summarily executed by an Orc Big'Un.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Not sure skullvane Manse wouldn't be described as a much more Warhammery fortress?
(So have wondered if that was it?)

I heard they would be making more individual pieces rather than one generic fortress.

So maybe Skullvane is the first of a number of similar pieces?

Well this piece IS fairly similar you have to admit.

I am not sure what to expect.
As I said Skullvane could easily be the more 'Warhammery fortress' I heard about.
I heard about it at roughly the same time as the grave far which we have seen.

As far as I know there are no plans to replace the current "Mighty Fortress".

But I am still expecting some more scenery.
