The tower as a paper weight.

Oh yes very nice, but I have two questions:

1) How does one get to the top of the Tower of Protector if there's no ladder?
2) What does it protect?

1) I don't know. It's a mystery.  :pir-classic:
2) It protects the sheep, perhaps.  :pir-blush:

Yes, sir. It is a BrickForge sheep. :pir-blush:

By the way, the rifle is one of BrickArms M1 Garand.

Any chance of providing some pictures of just the sheep and rifle?  I think it would be interesting to have a closer look at them, particularly the sheep because I don't think there has been one posted in the Pirate Forum previously.

Simple yet lovely. I must ask why the blue patches though? I would have used a grey tint for those. Also I believe it may look better with a small extra structure, nothing complicated though - just a shed or perhaps a tent of sorts.

It appears that your paper weight was the precursor to your awesome chess set. :pir-classic:

Great work and good use of the M1 Garand :thumbup:

We don't have a paperweight index yet so i placed this MOC in the Vig portion of the Land-Based MOCs Index. :pir-wink:

I considered the new gray is bluish, maybe blue patches fit it, so I tried on.
another example the creation I tried on the blue patches on the gray tower.

The large version of Tower of Protector is working in progress, and extra structures will be considered. :pir-sweet:
