Barbican gate


Product Code: CAS/BAR

This COMBI-DEAL gives adiscount of 10%. The Barbican is a suggested combination of the modular castle building series. It can also be used as a fort, watch tower, milecastle, etc…Once you have finished using the keep the models can be used for alternative layouts and combined with other  modular walls, floors, portcullis, etc…Should the invaders penetrate the outer portcullis or gate then they are still trapped by the rear gate or portcullis. The defenders would pour down oil or arrows onto the trapped attackers through murder holes in the fort's roof. These can be painted onto the roof to your requirments.

The Barbican Gate comprises 4 standard walls (the two additional castle walls shown in the photo are not included), plus one wall with a portcullis, and one wall with a barred double wooden gate (see additional images). There is also one stone roof, one stone floor, two walkways for fixing to the perimeter walls and 2 corners.  

There are two entrance type walls, one of which comes complete with a portcullis that can slide up and down in the slots provided at the rear. The other entrance wall has a barred closed double gate, which also comes with this model and can be slid into this position (see additional image).Arched slots are provided for chains to lower or raise a drawbridge of your own construction (alternatively use the "Contact Us" link to ask me when I'm going to make one?)

With two of these entrance sets you could put them back to back with a portcullis on the outside and a barred gate on the inside. A walkway is also included that can be glued to the wall and onto the pegs provided. Or better still construct a barbican gate with a roof over the killing space between the portcullis and gate, an example of which is included in this COMBI-DEALS section.

The wall is self supporting on a grass/mud bank base, and is designed to fit in with other castle walls and has pegs on the inside to support floors, walkways or roofs (in conjunction with other walls). As well as the high surface-textured detail on the outside of the building, this wall also has very detailed surface texture on the internal face (see additional image).

The purpose of the modular series is to allow the user flexibility with the castle layout. Should you just want a castle perimeter wall then this model can be used on its own or combined with others. This model is also available as a ruined version to represent battle damage and can be used to replace this wall as your game progresses or at the start of the game to represent breached castle (please enquire using the "contact us" link).

As with our other modular buildings the 25/28mm scale castle can be laid out as large as you like. The size of the castle can be expanded by adding more models.

These models are highly detailed and have a fully 3D textured surface to give that rough, graggy, random look of weatherworn stone. This detail continues inside the model so that the skirmish can continue there. The towers even have winding steps that suit standard 25mm bases.

By using the self supporting walls you can create:

v A keep with access to the first floor only via a set of stone steps and a drawbridge, to keep the enemy from assaulting the sturdy iron bound door (repositionable). There are internal stone steps, a wooden floor, windows on three sides and a well.

v A fort orMile Castle

v A portcullis or barred wooden gates.

v A barbican with an internal killing space from the roof above.

v An outer wall with a walkway and crenellations on both sides. Also with gates or portcullis. Perhaps spanning a mountain pass…

v A bridge or viaduct with arches, a walkway and crenellations.

v A castle with as many towers, walls, gates, portcullis, barbicans or outer walls as you require.


 This model is 171mm high by 195mm wide approx  and 205mm front to back including earth banks. The open gate is 62mm wide by 80mm high at its peak.
