Charentay Gaurd Tower
I need more bley...
About this creation
Stepping away from experimenting with lighting, I dove once again into castle, this time experimenting (there's that word again) with different designs and stuff. This MOC includes tons of inspiration from Aaron Andrews and Thomas Wunz.





The Charentay Gaurd Tower is supposed to be set in a massive field, which is why I didn't put many plants or tall landscape like rocks in it. Trust me, I was dying to make a tree. =)




After it was done I figured it would of looked a whole lot better with 1x6 arches instead of the 1x4's, but so much for that. Why didn't I do it in the first place? I guess that's just one of those unanswered questions...




...like, whatever happened to Joshua Nichols? Why doesn't the rest of the Brothers Brick team post stuff? Why am I wearing shorts and bare feet in January? Why am I asking these questions?












Our cool Strider dude...





NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!








For some odd reason, only for this one MOC, all the pictures I took turned out with a redish tint. Must be some curse Alex Eyler cast on me for trying to be like him.






But, I can usually fix it with Photoshop. =)









Blackr! And...whiter.













I really thought it'd look cool to have something like this wall running through it, but I dropped the idea for a lack of those modified 1x1's. Ah well, my MOCs can't always be perfect...that mindset is what I get from hanging out at Darkspawn's page.




No wait, I take that back. THIS is what I get for hanging out at Aaron's page.
That guy is good at everything!







Cute, huh? =)








What? Oh, right, castle!





I guess that's it for now...thanks for looking!!







EDIT:



I wanted to add this picture in the MOC, but I forgot. Just an idea of what my work space looks like when I'm building something smaller...and when it's clean.

Great. I love seeing other people's LEGO workspaces (hur hur)and it looks like an opposite (and much better) than mine. I have plastic shelves galore from floor to.. well... to table top... and a table that barely has enough space on it to build a minifig. Anyway, forgetting my ranting, this isn't anything amazing, but it's well built. Great job! (I have to love that little 'wall' thing... I might have to experiment with that technique...)

Quoting Seth Negron: Great Tower! Was wondering if their is an interior though.
Yeah, there's somewhat of an interior, if you call stairs winding up to a ladder that leads to the top an interior. If it makes it sound any better, it's SNOT. =)

Awesome, I am honoured to be an inspiration for this fine MOC. Very clean tower, I like the inset features particularly. Great build. & Kelso you stay out of castle, the theme isn't big enough for the two of us >=)

Quoting Chris Phipson Oh, and bare feet... short pants... January... Didn't know you were a Hobbit?
Well THAT explains a lot. Excuse me while I go comb the hair on my feet...

This is really nice JD! The first thing that stood out to me was the smooth look of the whole moc contrasting with the studded base. Not sure why it stood out... just did... must be hanging out with Kelso too much and that whole "artistic contrast" thing is rubbing off... man I hope there's a pill or something for that. Oh, and bare feet... short pants... January... Didn't know you were a Hobbit? ~ Chris.

We have our legos orginized but we work on the floor. Consider yourself lucky. Great work on the castle but I do think it could use some more details maybe a monkey :D or some details on the wall

That's awsome! Too bad you decided not to add that little grey piece of wall, I think it looks very good!

Exellent work, castle is one of the themes I could never built, but you are doing just awesome jobs. At the last picture I saw lots of figures, very nice collection.

I really love how you made the top of the tower, and the little Mecha is very cute !

Quoting Will Thomas And could you please explain "gaurd"?
"Guard" meaning there's probably a larger castle or keep a few miles up and this tower is sort of a lookout, or "guard" tower.

Very nice, the landscaping and arches of the castle are my favorite parts. And could you please explain "gaurd"?

Nice tower, JD! I like the design of the parapets. Can't blame ya for following the lead of Andrews and Wunz...I'll be doing the same as soon as I can get to a castle MOC!

Simplistic yet really detailed in a way. the way you kept the landscaping a minimal with a few plants, to me looks more detailed than making a surrounding forest, btw maybe you were wearing a red shirt that made the photos have a 'red' tint to 'em, just a hunch...

I don't know, I kind of like the 1x4 arches. They make the walls look stronger, like they have thicker corners or something. Your photo quality looks just fine to me, by the way.
