Bannockburn Tower

Postby soccerkid6 » Tue Jun 11, 2013 10:34 pm

A free build for GoH. Came up with some new plant designs for this. The tower has a full interior and all the doors open.

Joktan and Jayan succeeded in gaining the support of the Hradcanny dwarves and are leading them to attack a Hand of Corruption Castle. Here they pass by the city of Bannockburn:

The slanted wall is very nice. The whole MOC looks awesome!

very nice. reallt like the little details. The plant technique is fun. I have pout bushes in similar ways on my small builds, but i really like how you did them. It makes the "bush" look fuller and more natural.

The ladders... Are to a prefab ladder or something you made?

@friskywhiskers: Thanks! I've always liked "stepping" walls in other people's builds, so I decided to do one myself :)

@pyro guy: Thanks, that was the trickiest part of the build :)

@PsychoPixie: Thanks, the ladders are made from these:

hooked together with tiles and plates then turned sideways and attached to the wall with these:

Hope that made sense :)

I'm really liking that wall on uneven ground and the snowy road looks cool too.

That's totally cool man you should build an entire wall like that. 8)

Thanks! You mean stepping up rockwork? That would get piece intensive quite quickly, but the basic wall design I could go pretty big with 8)

Naw not necessarily the rock work... build the whole wall around like that. :spin:
