Recently I took a break from painting my lot of Tabletop World buildings to scratch-build a gallows scenery piece.

Yo, ho, haul together,
hoist the Colors high.
Heave ho,
thieves and beggars,
never shall we die.

Farewell Ye Dungeons dark & dreer.
Farewell. Farewell tae thee.
MacPherson's time will nae be lang
Upon yon Gallows Tree.

Sae wantonly; sae dauntlessly, sae gallantly spake he.
He played a tune,
And he danced it 'round
Below the Gallows Tree.


I got a brief glimpse of this little treasure from the D.A. email...a TRUE WORK of ART! Scratch-built Gallows 544694 Rather brings out the poet in we of tenuous hold on reality. Scratch-built Gallows Suspect

Very nice!

Although, personally I'd disarm those fellows before trying to hang them...

Looks great, this should be a real nice looking piece once painted up!

The drawn woodgrain looks great.

Have you tried to use a wire brush to scratch in wood grains vs. drawing them in?

Looks like a great place to hang out. Great detail. I really like the functional stairs. What type of cord did you use for the nooses?

@Hornet Rat: I actually didn't draw any grain in the wooden sticks. They have great natural strucutre that I like. I only used the pencil lines to indicate which side is meant to be visible when gluing them together (because I filed the edges of the strips but on one side).

@Archer: It is some standard cord I originall bought for the rigging of my ships and now I have plenty left over. It's nothing special really and you should easily be able to find something similar.

I've seen this on your blog before, but forgot to leave a comment Scratch-built Gallows Icon_redface
It's a really nice thing you did. I need to build something like that. Would look great also in Mordheim Smile

really nice! a good way to dispose of three bad guys at a time:)

only thing i dont like is the crossbeams on the posts. they seem uneccesary as they are driven into the ground.

have you come up with a scenario in which to use this?

Sure! I already played a rescue scenario with the gallows and it was cool.

While cross bracing on a real structure may not be necessary, cross bracing a balsa model is always a good idea.

Nice work. Looks very dark, like the other things you paint, so it all will look great together Smile

The dark stained wood gives the effect of a structure that has become a permanent fixture in the community...possibly an entertainment venue Scratch-built Gallows Suspect . VERY WELL DONE! Scratch-built Gallows 544694

This looks great painted. It doesn't look like you mounted it to your board. Is it fairly stable / sturdy without being mounted?

It doesn't. It has to do with Gierburg and pirates - although the scenario could certainly be abused for any game.

Yes, it actually is quite sturdy. The sticks/beams were glued with super glue gel and it is all very solid. I wouldn't try sitting on it though.
