I like the idea, but I'm not good at the micro scale building... but here's a few thoughts

Put some sort of defended walk above the gate.
Maybe build it taller. i.e. a look out tower. I would stay with the blue and white.
Put 2 floors in it.
Use "headlights" to put shields of your favorite faction above the gate.

other then that, you seem to be progressing well.

I like the randomly placed snow and the overall shape, but the blue, red and yellow bricks disract from the model. Try replacing them with grays

A very cool ( :lol: ) model!

As sad as it is, I have hardly any gray bricks at all...not even enough for a proper bridge :S....I could raplace the red and yellow with more blue however.
