Tabletop Workshop have passed along news of their huge Castle Kit preorder scheme. They have it up for sale at a ridiculous 50% discount if it's preordered in the next few weeks.

The neat thing about this is the Castle was already on my shopping list. If you hadn't heard about it yet it comes with removable panels, lift off sections (for figure placement inside), workable gates and a sliding portcullis.

They've added stretch goals to the sale that like Kickstarter will unlock dependent on how many orders they take.

These include

  • 25 Castles Sold - Wall Stairs (unlocked)
  • 50 Castles Sold - Siege Defence
  • 75 Castles Sold - Wall Hoardings
  • 100 Castles Sold - Tower Hoardings
  • 125 Castles Sold - Barracks
  • 150 Castles Sold - Armoury

They said:-

We appreciate that at this time of year, it may be difficult to pay for a massive kit like this in full. For this reason, we've announced details of a deposit scheme. As long as you've deposited £50 before the sale has ended, you'll still be entitled to the same cut-price offer and can pay the rest when you like. All that we ask is that your castle is paid for in full by February 28th. We also have gift vouchers available so that you or friends and family can use them as part of the castle pre-order or on other items in our online store.

That's not all. As a thank you to those who have paid for a castle in full before the new year, we're offering a great three tier reward scheme. Rewards will run up all the way to New Years Eve and the earlier you purchase, the better the reward. Those who've paid for their their castle in full before midnight on the Wednesday 18th December will recieve the fantastic Gold Reward. This exclusive offer will allow them 50% off ALL of their Tabletop Workshop purchases in 2014. Details of all our rewards can be found on our website. Of course, this is an addition to the massive discount you already get with the pre-order scheme and the amazing stretch goals you get free depending on sales. Merry Christmas!
