I think it would be an excellent idea if someone were to take these and create a link page for easy reference to anyone who's thinking of adding arrow slits to their MOCs. The variety of techniques used means that just about anyone could find appropriate parts in their collection to tackle at least one style.

However, I have mostly linked to Classic-castle discussions instead of BrickShelf directories. Also, I haven't included Dan's cross-slits: they're neat, but there's no discussion of his style or even a close-enough picture to be able to determine exactly how he built them. I'd be happy to include his slits if we find out more detail about them.
Indeed. There should be some sort of "Dwarf Miner" award or something for digging up the oldest thread.Pallando the Blue wrote:It was clever. Three years ago .

As far as arrow slits go, Alan's work and summary is good... even by today's 'standards'.

to get the smooth front using those L pieces it took 3 tile spaces in a row as the base to get the whole slit one brick deep, but didnt like ithe spacing as much. Also the tiles just made it not smoot in a dfferent place.
