The curse of Admiral M's LDD WIP MOC's of Doom srikes again!
And this time, it's with 3 new fort WIP's. I need to decide which format I should use for my port's central defence. It will be mounted on a 64x64 baseplate, and be flanked by 2 neighborhoods. For the purpose of not cluttering this thread with so many pictures as I usually do, I just pit teaser pics in the post. You can see the full gallery here. So , without further ado, I present;
Fortress #1: Castle Fort
(for more Pictures, see screenshots 178-183)
It's square, and has a good hight for it's purpose, since my port's buildings will be mounted 2.33 studs above the baseplate.
Provides many areas for cannons and soldiers to be placed.
Ramp provides access to water.
Wouldn't entirely fit on a 64x64 base, so there would be extra room.
Fortress #2: Sloped Fort:
(More pics at 184-185 and 190-195
Fits completely on a 64x64 baseplate.
Room to mount many cannon.
It's a realistic star(ish) fort.
Slopes are wicked expensive nowadays.
Fortress #3: Tower and Courtyard:
(more pics at 186-189)
Lots of room for interior in main tower.
Lots of room in the courtyard for training, ect.
Courtyard walls are thin, only one stud, and can only support 1 minifig (though that can be changed)
Walls are not at an adequet hight to connect to the main town.
The whole structure is 60x60, do isn't quite big enough.
So, in your opinion, which is the nicest fort? Feel free to give comments and critisism, or post pictures of your own forts!
Once again, you can see the full gallery here.
(Could a mod add a poll to this thread? Thanks.)
