I, Halvard the dwarf, just finished the build of a watchtower somewhere in the north-east, where the landscape changes from mountains into sand.

This is great! I'm a sucker for round towers, and this is quite a good one, especially with the upper balcony cantilevered out like that.  I really like the way you've made use of different angle slope bricks on the first tier of the roof; I hadn't thought of that, and it gives it a great look. I'm going to steal that idea.

This is a very striking construction, and totally suits the work of a dwarf architect.  The guild flags running in a circle around the platform are so simple, but work brilliantly!  :thumbup:

Well, thanks, but I can't take credit for it since I got the idea from Hagrid's hut.

What a great looking tower! The white is very striking and the first floor supported by "spokes" coming out of the wall like that is ingeneous.  :thumbup: It kind of reminds me of modern day water towers. The only thing that niggles at me is the colour and shape of the roof - it just looks a little flat and squat for such a gravity-defying structure. (I think i'd prefer to see something more rounded and/or colourful) But that's really just a minor niggle for such a nice build.  :classic:
