Greetings from Kcaj Nosnikta, me, my team and some hired help have finished a watchtower to guard the narrow pass at the north east point of The Great Escarpment.

I really enjoyed building this, I didn't have any idea of what kinda style just a deserty one, or even how to do the little sandy rocky landscapey thingy, this was a first for me to try and do a decent something, this was definately a step outside my comfort zone.

More photos on my Flickr.

Thanks.

I like the overall look to the tower. It has a very arabian feeling to it!  :thumbup:

The camel packing is soo nice! Great work!

Great work! I have been enjoying the works coming from Kaliphiln and this is another great desert tower. It has a great arabian look and feel and fits your guild very well.
Nice work :thumbup:

Very nice! Great desert/arabian feel to it. The wagon wheel and skeleton are nice touches.  I also really like the golden horns on top.  And nice job making it fully removable so we can see each floor, including the cellar.  I'll be coming over to hang out with you on the sun deck!

Great work CptMugwash! Love the use of colour. You've got a great Arabian feel to it, this is just what I imagined Kaliphlin to look like.

Can't wait to see your future MOCs!

Another great tower.

I'm super impressed how so many people have been able to build with the ... 'desert flair'

Truely fantastic stuff.

Thank you for your kind comments my liege.
Whenever I'm building for Kaliphlin I'm always thinking of Disney's Aladdin and start singing the Arabian nights song.

Oh I come from a land, from a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where it's flat and immense
And the heat is intense
It's barbaric, but hey, it's home

When the wind's from the east
And the sun's from the west
And the sand in the glass is right
Come on down
Stop on by
Hop a carpet and fly
To another Arabian night

Arabian nights
Like Arabian days
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways

Arabian nights
'Neath Arabian moons
A fool off his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes
