A Towerhouse for the Crusader faction. My largest project yet. The tower comes off the base & splits in two to reveal interior.
Black Tom attempts to free Willa the Witch from the goal within King Harold's Towerhouse. Normally Black Tom's magic alone would be more than a match for the Crusaders - But not on Gerard the Green's watch! The wizards battle on the Tower steps
In general I like your mocs a lot Aaron, although this one does not convince me 100%. I think it is great not to have plain walls, but on the other hand the walls on this castle look too geometrical. That irritates me from the historical point of view (just my opinion). I think the distribution of the arches to break up monotony should be more chaotic otherwise it gets monotonic itself.
Then, as I am a big fan of playability, I would have liked more a solution of opening up th tower without having to lift the whole tower. Other than that, another great moc.
I'm always on the lookout for amazing castles, and this one has satisfied my hunger. Excellent job on the detail included for each window and tower. The foliage on the ground floor is beautiful, and the mushrooms are a nice touch. This tower ties with Jojo's Tower in the Lonely Woods when striving for my all time favorite.
I don't know what the architectural term for it would be, but the 1x2 handle pieces you have lined up beneath the battlements looks good and I don't think I've seen anyone else do that before. Just one of many great details in this fantastic tower.
This is a beautiful castle, the detail in this makes mine look like a child built it; furthermore, the detail on the towers and walls makes the design. And of course size is always attractive - in Lego - size matters. I was talking to a photographer, and he gave me some hints on issues with the flash and lighting - depending on your setup (camera). If you want those hints, then send me an email. Lee.
