Wow. Perfect. I love it, I don't agree with the sparseness comment about the bottom layer, to me that feels "old" and "spooky" like a thousand generations of soldiers came and went, and still the walls will stand echoing their memories through eternity.

Great work SK. Not only the size is impressive, the details you´ve put in it are stunning. Like all the different ornamentation styles, the rockwork especially above the entrance, the elevator and much more. Also nice to see those elite guards in this moc again :wink: . Also, did you came up with this idea for the challenge when you were building for the valyrio challenge, because it´s a simular idea?!

Thanks Ecclesiastes! I like to use the guards whenever possible :thumbup:
The idea did come during that time, once I get going on a certain idea or technique I usually use it several times in a row.
I almost did a multi-level build for our contest but decided that would undermine the strength of the wall :laugh:

Thanks! The entryway is quite chipped by age and the floor is all cracked and rough, the bottom floor has
been preserved as I said in the description.

Yeah, I understand, but, you know, I can't see any of the pics except the front one, so I don't really know to well how ruined it looks inside. :grin:

I really like the detailing on this build, it's so parts intensive but I think it paid off massively, especially in the floor and all your modified 1x1 plates.  It has a very gothic feel.  Your columns came out really well in the end, it was a great idea to make the whole thing modular.  Superb build and very good presentation, good luck!

Thanks robuko! It's definitely my most parts intensive build yet :laugh: I learned about making stuff come apart in challenge III, if you don't photographing things is quite difficult when doing interiors :classic:

Amazing build SK!  Every Challenge, I try not to look at Challenge entries before I finish my own, but I always seem to see an entry early on where I think "well, I am definitely going to have to be at my best for this challenge" and this time it was yours.  The three levels are great, but the bottom one is by far my favorite.  You've done a great job with all the details on your cavern walls and pillars, my favorite part being the gallery windows.  I also love the tents on the 2nd level and the carrying of the fish, and the lift on the top level is brilliant!  You always have done a great job with your rock work and foliage.  Awesome entry - definitely one of my favorites!
