Man, I love the components in WoK! There is no other game outside Clash of Cultures that can come close. Anyways, the fortifications were shown without bases during the Kickstarter campaign, however, bases were added to them during production. Well, this causes the fortifications to tower over the villages and they just don't look right to me. This photo doesn't give that impression, but in person it is more obvious.



So, I took a dremel to them and they look a LOT better to me once everything is painted. Now I can start the painting process..... devil

i would agree with you, but not being "dremel kind of guy" I think i'll just add a small/round/wooden disk under the villages/towns/cities to raise them slightly...

Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad you liked all the components. The combat dice might be my favorite. They work better if you stand up while you roll them.

That's pretty cool what you did there. Definitely want to see how it all turns out. We'd love to collect a gallery of all the player created paint schemes/mods!

Good work!

Dremels are the best. After the cordless drill, gotta be my most used tool around the house.

I must admit to be more tempted by raising the villages etc rather than mangling the walls


I was thinking about doing that, but then the settlements don't look natural raised up like that. I am absolutely thrilled with how well the fortifications turned out.

I got some round wooden discs (same size), will paint them a generic gray/brown/etc and glue them to the bottom...

As most villages and towns don't get fortification making a small hill instead of a disk would raise the village and make it look natural.

I got the fortresses painted and they fit the settlements really well with the bases cut off.

Lazy man solution..
as the original post indicated the settlements are much too low or the walls too high . I was considering making a hill Mold to fit under the settlements but I got lazy So I glued Some card stock to the bottom of the fortresses and filled them with hot glue,Up a level and then sprinkled some Green turf on top. You have to put the settlements and from the top and the Castle is rather difficult Angle in a specially a city but they do fit problem solved in 30 min. instead of spending the weekend making Hills.
