In the hills surrounding Xyver's Estate, watchtowers keep an eye out for anyone entering the land.

Interesting SNOT plating there 'Xyver', I do like the top section though. :classic:
Like people have said to me about my watchtower....a little greenery might help it along a bit. :wink:

Some tiles would go good on those studded wall corners for a nice brick effect.

Thanks for the comments.

I only started this last night and finished it just before work this morning, so it is still a work in progress.

I'm using SNOT due to a lack of available pieces more than for effect, but it does look better in person, the photos didn't turn out that well. I had thought of putting tiles over the sides to make it look a bit more bricklike but haven't got there yet.

Tiling and some extra greenery is my aim for tonight.

The white back drop makes it look a lot nicer.

The lime green highlights are cool. Nice job.

This tower is great. Fun to see some other techniques being used! I agree that the tower has improved from the first pics..

Some advices though. If you add plates in green, brown etc to the landscape you avoid the bulky look on it! But I understand if this is a question about bricks missing!

Great work!!
