[UPDATE - 4th Feb 2013]
Now with two-alternative support sides - one with a ladder, and one with only the legs and a triangle piece to be glued on.
A 3 sided (triangular) wargaming watch-tower model for your savage races.
Rat-men, orcs, goblins, beastmen, kobolds, and more will feel right at home atop this vantage point, ready to spot for their allies or rain down bestial death!
Seemingly put together with scavenged planks, this rickety construction won't win any architectural prizes, but you can print a lot of them and have your own perimeter line of towers ready to use in under a day.
Fast, cheap and just good enough for the job - exactly the savage race way!
Height fully assembled = 4" (10cm)
Height to standing surface = 3.5" (9cm)
Widest point = 3.25" (8.25cm)
Ideally, I will be adding variation pieces to this Thing - including a support element that includes a ladder, a second-story platform that can be stacked with extra supports, etc.
SketchUp file included for those who want to modify it and create your own version!
I recommend 100% fill, 2 shells.
3x Support (of any combination of - Support, LadderSide and TriSide)
Trim model for any stray filament.
Recover small triangular prism pieces and keep.
Insert the tabs at the top of the support pieces into the holes in the underside of the platform - one tab per support, three holes in the base. This will be a snug fit.
Using a prism piece as the joint, glue two neighboring support pieces to each other.
Repeat for the other two connection points between the supports.
Finally, glue the support structure to the support platform.
It is now ready for priming, painting and decorating.
