(LCC) Shieldbury Watchtower

Postby theboywarrior » Mon Jul 29, 2013 2:34 am

Just a freebuild for the Lands of Classic Castle project. :D

The village of Shieldbury is the ancestral manor of the Shieldkeeper Clan, and it is protected by many watchtowers. They are heavily guarded, but due to the recent peace between Lenfald and Loreos the guards have become more relaxed. However, no matter what they may be doing, do not doubt that they are still alert! (Except for Jorge. That's one good book!)

My specialty in castle building is towers (My limited collection doesn't allow for much more :wink: ), and I personally think this is the best one I have ever made. However...I would greatly appreciate feedback from more experienced builders. :)

I like the corners of the top of the tower. They add character to the build in my opinion.

Cool tower, I agree that the pointy crenelations at the top give a lot of character and the vine climbing the back is a nice touch.
If you have some 1x4 arches or inverted slopes, I would use those to give the third story windows a more interesting shape :)

Thank you! I was wondering what to do with those windows. They're just so plain...And in hindsight, I do have 1x4 arches. :oops:
