Greymere Tower . Phew! Finally done! . I need to get better at coming up with names for my builds. I came up with the name 'Greymere Tower' today on the basis that this is a grey tower on a lake ('mere'). I had a sort of 16th century western European design ethic in mind when I built this, although in the end it was more a case of aesthetics over historical context (and defensibility!). Entry is through the southwest gate house then along an internal parapet around the courtyard to the main residential tower. This opens onto the south wing, which contains the great hall. The west wing holds barracks below and the traverse to the throne room in the western tower. Servants' quarters are in the attic over the traverse and there's a magic laboratory in the garret over the throne room. It might have made more sense to build the rooftop observatory closer to this, but I've stuck it on the main tower above the master suites instead. The basement holds the armoury, kitchen, extensive stores and the entrance from the small dock at the base of the main tower. A large parapet overlooks the lake to the north. I've probably gone a bit crazy with the large oak in the courtyard, but it was all looking a bit drab without it. There's a fully detailed and accessible interior, although I'm most happy with the basement - which is convenient since I can't seem to take a decent photo of any of the rest of the insides. I've been building this for far too long - a week every few months for the last couple of years. Slow going! I think I'll be sticking to smaller (and less intimidating!) builds for a little while now. This will also be my last personal build using old grey - I've finally overcome my snobbery and have started collecting new and recent sets in earnest, so future builds should be a little more colourful.
