Well this is one of my largest builds (I recently bought Helms Deep and I used a lot of those pieces). The category for this round was castle defense. So for greater defense I made the walls as high as I could, also having it built into the rock makes the walls even higher while allowing it to have a strong base. I also wanted to include a tower because they are higher up so it makes a good lookout post, plus it also makes it harder for the enemy to kill the people in the tower. This build has a total of 25 mini figs, including one in the jail. It is also complete on all sides. Good luck to everyone in the contest!
What?! I didn't comment!? Dude, great job!! I LOVE this build I like the stonework and rock-work. Literally, I look at your rockwork all the time for inspiration, this is great!! My only critique would be the dk grey stripe, it seems kinda out of place but apart from that I'm nuts about this build!!
Perhaps my favorite build of yours. I criticized your builds for being kind of dead. This one is alive and kicking! Lots of action going on, against a great stone wall. The way you incorporated a lot of small details is great. You have my vote. Good luck with the other judges.
Stunning work Carter. Love the rockwork, stonework, and the use of olive green. Thanks for adding the spear-in-midair effect, it makes this creation animated rather than appearing as a snapshot. While the rock stripe running up the side of the wall is a cool effect, I don't give much stock in its being realistic. Nice interior details too, I love the sword rack and the storage room. Well done and God bless! ~Promar~
