Valholl Side Tower

25 posts in this topic

Here is my build for the finals in the Walls of Valholl Contest. Ironically it was inspired by one of Ecclesiastes' builds :laugh:

The doors and trapdoor open and there is a full interior just no way to access it other than the doors.

This is going to be though to beat for sure!

I like the strong feeling it has and I like that you always try to put new styles of ornamentation in it!

Thanks Ecclesiastes and thanks for inspiring me to try a rounded section :classic:

I like the doorway and that you made a full interior, but it does seem a bit TOO ornate/busy to me.

I tried to keep it down by just repeating the same patterns but I can see your point, I wasn't going to include the log bricks with headlight bricks plus 1x1 tiles layers in the facade but they were necessary so the floors could fit.

Thanks for the feedback :classic:

I think EBs castle builders are becoming known for details and not having bland walls, but I think we all suffer sometimes from going a bit overboard too. It's just my preference to have some texture without going too crazy.

Nice job! I like your decorative work, it almost looks like it's designed to be a stand-alone tower! :thumbup: For some reason I've always loved that border, great job!

Yeah, after thinking about your first comment I totally agree. The numerous in/outs kind of take away from the "castle" feel.

neat!

Thanks Legonardo, and I would have made the tower taller but without wall sections next to it, that would look really strange :laugh:

Nice tower sc! I agree with ZC, though, it does have an awful lot of different peices and a lot of design. Bet it was hard to build :wink:

Thanks Garmadon, it was actually pretty easy to build :classic:

Very nice SC! I can totally see the Ecc influence here

Thanks Kayne, glad it's apparent :classic:

Interesting design. I'm going to echo previous comments about being too ornate.... However the ground floor door is absolutely stunning and perfect! :thumbup:

Thanks for your opinion, I'll be more careful about overdoing it in future builds :classic:

Looking great! Love the angled walls! Have to try that soon when I continue with my Gothia castle! Good luck in the finals now! :classic:

Thanks dG! The angled walls are something I've been meaning to do for a while, the effect is great :thumbup:

I think the amount of ornamenation won´t be bothering so much when seeing it connected to a wall part!

Ok, I'm going to revise my earlier comment. Something was buggging me but I couldn't figure out what it was. After viewing this in the context of the Valholl thread, I think that it was not the ornateness that bothered me, but that the design does not seem to reflect the rest of Valholl. I went back and looked at your Silmeria and I think this tower would fit in perfectly there.

Thanks Mikel, it's encouraging to hear someone took the time to really look at your build :thumbup: You could be right about it fitting in Silmeria, must be I didn't want to let go of the idea :laugh:

I actually used the capital city name as the name for the dwarven ruins I built too :innocent:

I like to see the full interiors, and I've had the same problem of not being able to show it in photos. I look forward to seeing connected sections, and I really like the crenellations along the top.
