Hangman’s Gallows from 4Ground

Hangman's Gallows from 4Ground
Another piece finished for my Old West games – a Hangman's Gallows from 4Ground. What Western town could be without one?
I painted this one as I wasn’t too fond of the prepainted wood-look. A relatively easy job.
The ropes are provided in the set and I stretched them and soaked with super-glue to get them stiff as they have a tendency to bend if untreated and that looks like crap.
Finally a big welcome follower Leo Donkersley.

  1. A great piece, and I'm sure it will be a feature of some interesting scenarios.

    1. I tried some different methods and superglue worked best. You need to paint the rope afterwards, as they turned all dark where glued.
      They are super-stiff, though.

    1. I've drooled over that great terrain board already. Fantastic!
      I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to build my own terrain. I need more that a grass-mat.
