The Walls of Stonewald

Postby E,B. » Sun May 27, 2012 7:40 am

A free build for LCC - Lenfald

3 Weeks after the events in “The Bandits”………. A few days prior some peasant reported seeing a large convoy of Garheim soldiers landing on the northern shores of Lenfald. Rumours as they may be, Sir Eli has taken every precaution. He is now arming and supplying the troops on the walls of Stonewald. Preparing them incase the rumours prove true………

Awesome job on the wall! However, the landscaping looks a bit flat... perhaps spice it up a bit with some rocks? ;)

I like the lift (what pieces did you use for the frame?!?)... but I must say, although it's called Stonewald, the Lenfald style consists of wood/stone combinations, and your wall, despite the highlights, looks a bit plain...

The details on the inner wall are amazing, the hut, the chests, the wheels look great... the wall itself, again, despite using different colours looks a bit plain...

The battlements could use some more details, or maybe machicolations or other highlights (maybe a weapons cache or a small shelter for the wall guards)

The plain grassland on the outside is ok, it is customary to keep the area before the wall flat and simple - to provide as little cover as possible to the approaching enemies.

This is great, I love the detailing of the inner side of the walls, awesome job. The other side, what mitah said is that the outside area before the wall is "flat and simple" but it looks a bit plain. Oh well I wouldn´t done it any better either so I don´t complain about that :D
So defensive holes in the walls would had been a cool feature and idea.
But a overall very great job E,B

Excellent work! The crane is my favorite part, though the wall looks good as well, and the little house, especially the roof.
Go Lenfald!

Great wall! I really like the little lift system in the back it looks great! As said before I think it could be made to fit Lenfald's style a little better by adding more wooden parts in. Like the things suggested by Mitah, namely machicolations as that would suggest preparing for a siege!

First of all. Thanks.

I was going to put a small wooden tower at one end of the wall but it never turned out :P

Actually there are some machicolations in this build but I guess I forgot to take pic.....

Again, Thanks :D

Nice job with the CMF baseplate roof. I just did a very large one with them in my "Feasting Hall of Greng" MOC. One thing that you can do to make it even better is stagger the "seams" between the plates by using 1x4 or 1x3 tiles on the end. Gives it a little more of a "shingled" look. Not sure if that makes sense or not.
