River Run Watchtower
This is "River Run Watchtower" made for the Avalonia guild at Eurobricks.com.
About this creation
The garrison has arrived at River Run Watchtower my liege.

Though the river is only a few feet wide, River Run is a treacherous territory for any who attempt to brave the rapid river waters or the foot bridge into Avalonia. A statue of Orctanus Greffin, original “Defender of the Realm” continues to stand guard over all of Avalonia. Some men of the realm say the statue has mystical powers that grant the garrison at River Run Watch Tower superior strength and endurance.

To me the purpose of the watchtower is not only to be a first line of defense, but it should also be used to signal others if danger approaches. To accomplish both of these purposes I made the tower of stone for defense and made the tower tall and added a spy glass (must be the first one ever invented since in the real world it wasn’t invented until the early 1600s) and an outcropping with a fire pot to light a signal fire/smoke signal on top of the tower (without burning down the wood covering on top).

A special shout out to the Guild Leader, Derfel Cadarn, since I basically stole all his landscaping techniques for this one.

Quoting Frank Brick Wright I'm on EB too but I'll just comment here. The MOC is fantastic, great creation! I like the details you added, the tiles in the walls, the statue, very nice use of simple still beautiful techniques! The only thing I'm not sure I like is the "frame", with plants in the side limits of the creation. Anyway, great job! :)
I guess I am not a fan of building a base that just serves as a frame. Though some people have done good things with "clean" looking frames I made the base with the idea that the MOC would "continue" outside the edges.

Good build. The scenery helps give the tower a very frontier build. The bridge cut-off and the stones that are sticking out of the wall are both strokes of genius.
