The Duke of Glannalt is brought to the Folviken. Abductees are always brought to the lake fortress for safe keeping until a ransom is paid. High profile persons, such as the duke, are always high stakes; sometimes our work just plays into the hands of an opportunistic usurper. But the rewards for the Wolfpack are too good to pass up.

I created this MOC for the Over water! category of the CCC XIX. I had been planning such a MOC for a while, especially after seeing Jonas Kramm’s Wolfholm. The submission was also very fitting for the Brickscalibur Rogues and Outlaws.

I had planned to use more wood and less stone, but enjoyed creating the rough stone wall textures. The whole process took longer than expected, but I’m satisfied with the result.

I had originally planned on a cheese slope roof, but could not work in the ‘wolf’ accents without very large roof rakes. So I went with a standard tile roof (with tiles half pushed down).

This looks very fine, the colours and proportions are well kept.
Thanks for sharing. :classic:

Excellent! The stone to wood ratio is spot on I would say and so are the wooden wolf heads protruding from the roof (great NPU)! :pir-love:

Brilliant work - I admired this when I first saw it on Flickr! The stone work looks fantastic - just the right about of texture for that rough look and the timber sections blend right in - the whole effect is really very good!

A very nicely built fortress with lots of details.

I think I said on Flickr that I loved the combination of red and dark blue--anyways, I certainly do!  Very bandit-y looking fort too, and the three different sizes of towers is great!

:thumbup: for the UoP credits!
