Mitgardian Border Watch

19 posts in this topic

Here is my entry to the "defenses" minichallenge.

These walls are manned by soldiers from the lords and noblemen of Mitgardia, each owing a month of guarding some of the many fortifications around Valholl. All is quiet for now...

This is my first grey castle, and I love it :wub: It is a section of wall with a tower guarding a road to Valholl. It also has a dock to receive supplies brought up the river. I hope you like it as much as I do :laugh:

I think the wall technique is new, I used mostly bley log bricks with some normal bricks mixed in. In my opinion it gives a nice texture.

I tried a tiled roof and don't think I will ever be able to go back to plates :hmpf:

@Alex the Great: Thanks, I will definitely be doing more in the future.

@Balthasar: Thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only to think the walls work well

@Sirens-of-Titan: Thanks :sweet: I think you are absolutely right, hopefully I can beat this one soon :laugh:

@de Gothia: Thank you, I aim to improve on at least one aspect of my building with every MOC

@Hyler Talliwell: Thank you, this is my second time using that technique for the stream and I think it works perfectly for Mitgardia.

Dang-it now I have to find a better idea than a war-cart. ;3

Where to start? The walls are awesome, the roof is great and the waterfall might be the best part. Normally i hate water made like that, but here it is perfect.
