The Barbed Portcullis offers a slight advantage over a simple barricade. With walls made of stone and spikes from hardened steel, this structure will do a bit more damage to creatures that try to assail it. While the effort to construct it is slightly more than a barricade as well, the tradeoff might be just what is needed on the battlefield.
As with a barricade, stronger creatures will easily crush this structure, but it does slow them down and do some slight damage. For smaller creatures, this might just be what you need to stop them entirely.
