Yep, another MOC. Once again, I'm going to make a small description of it:
The town of Ilandos was founded in the year of 1001 by the great King Thomas the Saved. It is the largest town in the Kingdom of Teremar, and the King after King Thomas, King Heptios, built the great Citadel of Duithandil on the hill above the town. Ilandos has fallen under attack only twice in its long history, and it has recovered both times.
A top view. I'm planning on expanding this after.
A good angle.
Guess what? An angle.
Woah! ANOTHER angle?

Simple (compared to your latest siege), but effective for what it is. The streets are narrow (like they were in real medieval towns). Once again, good work on the Tudor-style houses and the signs over the places of business. I would like to see some detailed interiors of the buildings. Also, if you want to add some gritty medieval realism to the scene, try making small gutters running along the fronts of the buildings (they didnít exactly have plumbing in these towns). BTW, is that cow a new piece? I havenít really been keeping up with all the new specialty elements LEGO has made lately (and theyíve made a lot of them).
The gutters are a good idea, but that would take a lot of work. On my next town I may do that.
After long consideration, I have come to the conclusion that Tristian Amaya has my vote. Though LordLego 436's town scene was nice, and had some clever build ideas, Tristian's tower just "took the cake". Well done, the both of you, this was an extremely tough decision!
Alright, I comment. To begin with, the stone base for each house gives realistic detail, and the Tudor Style siding adds a nice touch of history to the MOC. The pathway is perhaps the best part, being indented slightly from the rest. Improvements could first be the roofing. You have black roofing on a house that should be thatched. Did they tar it to waterproof their buildings? If so, enemies would have no problem storming the town. (And burning it to cinders...) Overall a good build, but needs just a bit of improvement here and there. I do understand however if the black roof pieces are the only type you have. I have that limited collection problem sometimes. The next step would be to build the interiors. Just a thought... MEP

Nice job but it looks to much like the set. I have to give the vote to the tower though I just thought it was a better build.-George

Looks great Tom,
Although it would have been nice with a bit more detail :(
Love the houses
