This is the second model in our "Model of the Month" (MoTM) project. Each month we're planning to make a limited run of a different model.
The second in the series is a 1/60th scale ("28mm") model of a guillotine with surrounding scaffolding.
Though popularized by the French revolutionaries for the rapid dispatch of the aristocracy in the 1790's, these devices had been in use since the eleventh century - and the French have continued to use them for applying capital punishment until as recently as 1977.
Before the French used them, they were fairly commonly found in Scotland, England - and (according to one report) Ireland. The last use in England was in 1650 - and the last in Scotland was 1710.
As such, these machines would not be out of place in any fantasy setting. Having our heroes rescue an unfortunate from such a death would provide a great "nail-biting finish" to any epic journey.
