Castle gate or portcullis


Product Code: CAS/ENT

This model is part of the modular building series. It forms the separate gate or portcullis entrance through the castle wall, which is also available in various suggested arrangements in COMBI-DEALS. This wall comes complete with a portcullis that can slide up and down in the slots provided at the rear. Alternatively the barred closed double gate, which also comes with this model 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 the 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 another entrance. 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.

 Grass/mud bank corner pieces are available separately as a set of four.


This model is 171mm high by 144mm wide and 37mm front to back including 20mm of banked grass/mud. The open gateway is 62mm wide by 80mm high at its peak.
