Desert Fortress

Postby Forestman Jon » Sat Sep 25, 2010 7:25 am

I built this little MOC for this year's Mini castle contest, it is a fortress in the desert near an oasis.

Wish me luck! :D

Very cool micro-castle, loving the eastern theme, the black highlights with the gold and white look great! The gates are nice too, as are your trees around the oasis - that makes for a nice setting. The only change I would make would be to inset the dark tan tiles of the path into the tan plates so that your path/road is on the same level as the surrounding landscape. Nice work and good luck! :)

Looks great! Definitely can see the architectural style even with such a small MOC. Good work!

This looks so good! You have a great chance at winning! The different trees look great, they're my favorite part. Keep up the great micro!

I like the whole Arab castle near an oasis idea. Very cool!

Lovely. I agree with Karrde about the road, though.
...and that's how Equestria was made!
