Castle Building Techniques

I've used a particular technique in a MOC that is yet to be uploaded. The technique is used to create a gothic arch.

How to make it: push a number of cylindrical bricks up a flexy tube thing. Make sure there are an equal ammount on each side and attach the first and last cylinders on a stud to stick them down.

Sounds like a good idea! I really need some tips for building walls.

Good. You understood that. I thought I explained it badly.

I like using alot of 1x1 studs and a few 2x1 studs in a wall,it looks really good if you don't put too much different colors...I'll add a pic of the WIP of this in my next creation.

I do that for trees alot.....just change the color of the cylindres to brown.....then you can give nice,more natural,shapes to your trees!

I guess if you used cones you could make a palm tree.

I had never thought of using a flexy tube in that way, can't wait to see the creation

I have another one...
For people who don't have a lot of bricks (like me :D ) but who have enough plates and tiles, this will help a lot. Just build a tiled wall... (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/320986) It also gives a pretty nice effect ;)
Just try it out (with modified bricks http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=87087), it's not that difficult.

I've tried it and it's great.Is it your technique or is it someone else's,just to know who to give credit to. ;)

Thanks mate,and sorry for all the spaming. I'm on the Ipad and although this device is great for shooting birds at green pigs,it's really easy to hit a button a few extra times,or have typos (as you have surely noticed in my comments today.

Can I star a "castle themed minifigs" topic?
it would be a place where people can talk about the ones they like,need and don't like and why.
