The Watchtower of Old

12 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! This is my entry for the watchtower guild build challenge, I am not very good at watchtowers and was short on grey bricks when I thought about building something so ridiculously audacious that I dare not say. Let the pictures speak for themselves!

We had discovered the ruins of one of the old yellow towers and had used it as a watchtower, we were prepared when a Drow party attacked us from the East.

The rumble of battle (aka my shaking arm)

Drow invaders from the East!

The West defends itself along the borders of Historica

My homage to yellow castle is that I dug up all the smiley heads I had and put them on the troops.

C&C and the usual appreciated greatly, and Long Live Avalonia!

maybe you should give it doors and windows instead of holes in the wall, you should also consider to top the door with an arch instead of just a straight brick

Great start. I really like the minifig posings!

Some advices.. As said before, windows and the door could use some upgrading. The landscape is rather flat... if you dont have the plates you could add something else. Like a haycart or some more vegetation...

Keep up the good work! Our watchtowers grows steadily now!!!

Great work anyway.....I didn't know we had to fight Hagrid...my son will not like that ! :laugh:

They're in plenty of sets, but none more recent than 2004. You can buy one for as low as 3ยข USD, though.
