Simba Superplay castle
These are now £14 from Debenhams, and apparently work well at 28mm scale. There seem to be numerous examples of them being painting up and looking great.

I've ordered a couple and will donate one to the club.

RE: Simba Superplay castle
These arrived yesterday, and I'm very impressed - excellent value for £14. They're very much poor man's Playmobil, and could do with mounting onto a board to maintain a square footprint (not permanent, just something with perhaps some pegs to hold the walls in place), but there's plenty of potential to just use some of wall and tower sections for a "city wall" type scenario. Definitely recommended (even tempted to get another one!).

I have one for the club too - anybody fancy a go at painting it up?

Some photos taken in haste, but will hopefully give you a sense of the scale (SAGA and Perry Napoleonic figures used for reference)...

Just seen these pop up in my Facebook feed again - still available for £14 from Debenhams if anyone (Paul?) is interested.

These seem to be back in stock but up to £21. Still very good value at that price.
