Built high in the mountains of Mitgardia, this tower watches over a dangerous pass.

That is a great tower. I like how you did the steps. I don't know if I have seen that before. I like the path through the snow. Great job!  :thumbup:

Solid effort. :thumbup:  The tower is good, the snow is good, the path is good but the road could do with some more detail - then it would be even better!

I agree. That's a quick fix. If you have a tan  bush or two could help. A dead frozen tree could spice it up a bit more.

I like the moulding on the steps through the snow. A great effort in keeping with the Midgardian aesthetic.

I like the fact that is missing tress, bushes. Things like that doesn´t have to grow on places like this!

As I said in the Mithgardia thread, this is really good! Great work!

That's kind of what I was thinking, some brown bushes would look nice but I sadly lack them.

This is possibly my favourite of all of the towers - the detailing on it is superb, such as the indented windows, the round bricks on the corners, the turrets, the tiles and the variation in grey.  The snow is great, and the steps are excellent...the muddy path works well as a contrast.  

Great great work.   :thumbup:
