Very nice Mister Wellington. I like the use of different shedes of grey in the wall. One improvement I could suggest is possibly btinging the arch out 1 stud from the rest of the wall, just to give it some more depth. :pir-wink:

Very nice.  I like the look.  I enjoy all the chaos in the MOC.  It needs a guillotine and some blood.

You've captured the picture very nice, the chaos looks very real! :thumbup:
The only thing i'm missing here is a tree or some shrubs to make it look even more lively.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

nice MOC! I immedately recognized the Bastille in it, it's really quite similar to the real one. I didnt know there was water around it, but I think you know that better than I do:)

Nice creation you've got there Sir Wellington! I like the action going on.
The Bastille is a nice thing too, nice colours but it may need some flourish up. :pir-blush:

I am a big fan of the mixing of different shades of gray in fort/castle/french prison construction. I like this a lot! keep up the good work!

Very nice Mister Wellington... love the chaotic touch.

Constructive criticism
-- If possible try to make your photos better and bigger.
-- If possible you could make the gate more higher so it looks more like the real thing.

Respect all Lego bricks !!!
