Anyone know of a place where I could get or something I could use as small asian castle pieces. When I say asian I mean chinese/japanese.

Looking for something no bigger than 1.5 inches high, doesn't have to be very detailed at all - just needs the resemblance.

If not maybe someone could help me find a place that sells small wooden generic shapes that I could use to piece together for a castle look, like say a pyramid and a box.

Thanks for reading, anything will help :)

Might as well add

Ok I guess no idea on that. While I'm here i've also been looking for flat round counters about .5'' or 12mm in diameter. I found some in UK but not sure if they will stack. Also found some online that weren't painted yet, trying to avoid having to paint them, checked rolco, rpg etc. Stackable poker chips would have been fine as well but i can't find any this small in diameter. Prefer to use US stores to avoid lengthy shipping periods

Is this what you had in mind?

I broke out my wooden peg bits upon seeing your request. Not sure if this is what you had in mind. Its as Japanese as I could get with what I had. The photo is rough cause its from my (dumb) cell phone.

Everything in the photo can be purchased @ your local Michael's craft store. I could see this being painted very nicely with the bulbs on the outside being trees or concrete pillars.
Hope this helps :-)

wooden round counters

I don't know my mm to inches of the top of my head....but if your looking for simple round counters (see picture) Michael's the craft store has you covered too. They have several different sizes. If you take a spray can to a bunch of these you can have colored ones in no time!

Here are a couple of sites where I found wooden pegs:

For the last one, look under Lauras Crafts

Probably not TOO

Probably not TOO useful...

But for Asian Castle looking pieces, you can pick up a copy of the game Camisado - it has Asian castles as pieces, and there's probably around 40 of them.
