Castle Black and the Wall

Today I put this map together with @KourtJester .

It's Castle Black and the Wall from A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) just as the Wildlings are attacking the wall (season 4, episode 9 in the show).

The inside of the wall actually has a tunnel that matches the book/show, with two castle doors on the ends and castle pieces lining it.

We weren't able to build the elevator, so we substituted two runs of ladders to try to mimic an elevator shaft. We were able to build the staircase into the wall however (on the right hand side).

Here is the map without any figures on it:

From the south:

From the north:

And here is the map with figures placed:

From the north:

And top down:

I tried to embed the images in the post, but I wasn't able to. If anyone has tips on how to get that working, let me know and I'd be happy to edit the post.

Side note: @KourtJester and myself also plan to make Heroscape characters from Game of Thrones eventually, when we can get the time (would be quite an undertaking). If anyone else out there has done any Game of Thrones Heroscape maps/units, let me know.

Note: This isn't exactly a tournament-style map or setup, so I'm not sure this is the correct thread, but it seemed the best match.

Oh my word...well done! That's awesome! I must ask though, how do the Figures from the north get to the figures on the top? Will Jotun and the Ice Giants have to break down the fortress door?

Yes, they would have to break down the door, go through the tunnel, and up the wall from the inside (ladders or stairs). Which is basically what the giants tried to do in the battle in Game of Thrones (tried to fight their way through the tunnel).

This is somewhat a limitation of mashing Heroscape up with Game of Thrones though, as Jotun is too tall to fit in the castle door, so technically if it was a Heroscape game the giants would be kinda useless. Also, the 2-hex figures are also too tall to fit up the stairs and can't climb the ladder. But, we ignored those limitations - it wasn't set up for a HS game, after all, just for pictures

Oh okay, gotcha. It would make for an interesting game...though I imagine those Roman Archers would do some devastating work.

This is definitely the thread. Great, great map! Pics of the interior would be cool. Both chas and I took shots at it with The New York City Gang of Four. See: chas presents - Game of Thrones 'Scape, and its related battle report, Game of Thrones 'Scape Battle Report, for chas' version, and Game of Thrones The Undead Invasion - Revised and Game of Thrones - The Last Winter?, which were early drafts, leading up to Game of Thrones - The Last Winter? Official Playtest Version and its related battle report, Game of Thrones - The Last Winter? Battle Report, for mine. Feel free to borrow my Custom Cards. Thanks Dr. Goomonkey!
