Deep in the desert wastelands our borders are kept safe with watchtowers:

Home comforts are provided for the soldiers which make up our first line of defence:

From one Mikey to another, Nicely done.  I especially like the timber pieces that extend from the tower.

Very nice! Love the beams sticking out, and the interior scenes. And I'm jealous of that dark-tan landscape; I've got to get more dark tan plates and bricks!  And a very nice arch effect around the front door. I hadn't thought of using that small 1x4 arch in combination with the other two; I'm going to steal, er, borrow that technique!

As everyone said, the wood braces are brilliant.

The subtle dark tan terrain and the interesting wall motifs make this a fantastic tower.

It's clean and simple. fantastic!

Great job comrade!  I really like the smoothness of it, it contrasts really well with the rough studs.  Really digging the beams and arches too.  I'm just wondering whether I like it without some bushes and maybe a snake or scorpion, idk.

Brilliant work mikey! Great use of the wooden beams, it reminds me of Malian architecture. Lovely use of half-stud offsets throughout. Nice work with the arches at the door entrance - using that 1x3 arch to bridge the gap was inspired.

Hope to see more from you in our Guild!

Looks Great!  Your watchtower gives us a chance to fully assemble our troops should we need to fend off an attack!  :sweet:

Love the wooden beams, and the smooth look to the whole thing, nice job!
