Castle gatehouse
The entrance to my castle.
About this creation
Here is my attempt at a large section of a castle. I find gatehouse to be very important in the appearance of a castle, so I made mine first. I re-worked it a couple of times and this is the best version so far. I plan on making it part of a smaller castle; more or less a keep with a wall surrounding a courtyard.

It is made to be classic-castle city compatible. This sort of modular design allows easy transport and reworking of the castle's layout.

I hope to finish the rest of the castle over summer break.

   I am pleased with this side, however I have not been able to aquire any grey lions-head bricks, so tan has to do for now.

   The center gargoyle is removable to allow hot tar to be poured onto attackers.

   I know the arrowslits are backwards, but you can see them this way.

   Not only do the sides/back swing out, but the roof sections are removable for access to the fairly detailed inside.

   The winch mechanism raises and lowers the portcullis. There is a ratchet which holds it up in place till the bar is lifted, and the portcullis falls down.

   This small section of flooring is even removable for access tothe lowest portion.

Wow. That is really neat. I love the work on the stone path, the stone walls, the outside details, the color scheme, the fact that it opens to show a beautifully done interior, the archway, the gargoyles... Let's just say that I like it. Super job, dude. I wish I was that creative.
