Tower In The Forest

Postby Garbageman13 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 3:28 pm

Some of you on Flickr may've remembered my unfinished castle. Well, I eventually took that down and built something I was more pleased with..

^Above image is a link^

I've always wanted to incorporate a waterfall into a Castle MOC, and I've always liked towers. I decided to combine the two! This MOC was very enjoyable to build, and I have to credit several builders for the inspiration and techniques. The tower was based off Daniel DNL and Rocko's towers/castles. I also learned the whole tip of the roof thing from DNL. And last, but not least, I learned the basics of making a waterfall from Eggy Pop, who posted a tutorial awhile back. (Read it here)

Here's a link to the complete set on Flickr.

Enjoy, and God bless.

Very cool. That waterfall turned out really nice. BTW, I linked Eggy's tutorial to our how-to page.

This is brilliant, with an excellent sense of both scale and movement.

That waterfall's really something.

Even though it's been already said, I like the waterfall. I also like how the tower was built right down into the cliff with the exit at the bottom. The mini-figs you used were great too, each one has something different going on and none of them are really related to what the other is doing. I especially got a kick out of the random guy robbing the place. Thanks for sharing!

Needless to say, the waterfall is awesome. The entire moc has a unique feel that I really like. The tower is really good finished.
