Fortress of Redemption

This is going to be a long post.   I've been sitting on this one for a while.   I did not want to post anything, because this was a birthday present for my 11yr old son.   His birthday was yesterday, so I can now post something.

This project was replicating the Fortress of Redemption WarHammer scenery.   You can see the original here.

This was, by far, the most complex project I took on with the laser cutter.   Many parts are meeting at odd angles, and there are a lot of details.   It took me a LOT of time to model this one in Sketchup and Inkscape, and at least 7 hours at the laser cutter, cutting the different parts.

But I'm very satisfied with how it looks.  Here is the whole thing:

Here are the details:

I built it in a modular fashion, so that we can use the different parts separately.

Here is just the tower.
 Just the hex bases.

 The sides of the hex bases just come off.   I was thinking of putting magnets on them, but I have not done so yet.

Here is the center part.

The tower either fits on top of the center part, or a special base that I built just for the tower (that is not part of the whole structure above).

There are still a few things I'd like to do.  I have not yet done any weapons, like canons, that would fit on the circle in the hex bases.   I'd also like to make a "door" panel that fits on one of the hex bases' sides.


  1. Amazing work!! do you have a link for the design?

  2. Hi.
    Did you share the files of your work ? I'd like to cut myself one...
    Best regards

  3. Are the plans available? My nephew would love it!
