I finally finished my castle gate:
I'm not sure what else to say,
Feedback good or bad is always appreciated and welcomed, especially useful, meaningful responses.
Thanks and enjoy!

I like the way that the gate rise from a stone suface! And the curved road. It makes the MOC more 'organic'.
Nice to see you remembed a fence at the back so that the soldiers don't fall down !!
But I'm missing som pictures of the back of the wall. Does it have walkways in in the wall?
I'm actually planning a 'special' castle/fortress. And this was grat inspiration!!!!!

Do you still have your corner wall? As they are in the same scale can they connect some how?

Unfortunately the back of the wall is plain, therefor I didn't photograph it. I just filled it in with more grey bricks so it's solidly backed, too. Aside from that, there is nothing to see. (Except the simple pin LEGO-style pin system for keeping the gate up, and the supports for the landscaping.)
The Corner Tower was taken apart in order to make this one, and within two days of photographing this gate it was 100% apart and sorted: http://www.brickshel...on/dscn4296.jpg However, if I were able to have this Gate and the Corner Tower constructed at the same time, they would blend together seamlessly.
However, I've started a new castle MOC now. It was inspired by several MOC's I've seen online, as well as the fact I got an additional brand-new 350 old grey and old dark grey bricks in the mail yesterday...for free. :)
Thanks again, glad you all enjoyed it!

I have about a tubful right now. I'd like to get more, but I doubt that will happen, at least anytime soon. Then I have another tub of other size bricks.
One thing that must be realized about having a huge amount of 2x4's is the fact that they're useless.
Unless you want to have an awfully plain wall or something, you need a fairly sizable amount of other pieces. Fortunately I have more or less balanced my 2x4 supply and other grey brick supply so they are about equal when I use them. :)

That is why I would love more basic parts.
