Default Japanese pagoda / temple / fort WARNING VERY PIC HEAVY

hey all,

this has been my biggest project in a long while , it has taken me 2 whole days of work to bring this creation to life.

so I present to you ......*drum rolls*.......*Drum rolls*....... My Fort/temple/japanese pagoda.




the inside of the top floor control room with radar screen (bad pics sorry)





and finally the BACK of the tower please not that the holes in the back are the inside and I can cover them up with removable bits of cardboard-



so what do you think of my 48 hour creation

C+C welcome!

RAPOUC

most lego stuff is a bit too big (a lego man is a giant compared to a wh40k model)
but for terrain and other minor things its good

now I have a new question-

i'm planning on extending this by adding on two extra towers

what should I put inside them

these are my ideas

-Armory?
-Temple
-breifing room

Just make three towers in a triangle formation and make all three. An armory is good to make if you have a load of spare guns

I think you should try to slow down and plan a bit more before you build things, and spend more time on details and materials. Your ideas are great, but your buildings look quite sloppy...

I know they look quite sloppy but personally I don't really mind eventually I can cover up the sloppiness with trees , vines and other things

note- it is in progress it will be made to look less "sloppy" when I have more materials

so anyhow thank you more C+C welcome

I like it a lot. I think it could benefit from a "redo", meaning going back and making sure that all the walls are even and flush and at the right angles…but for a simple piece on a table top, it's great. It provides cover, several floors to shoot from and will probably be the terrain every army fights to control.

Nice work. Like I said though, my only suggestion would be to go back and measure out all the walls and supports and roof pieces so they are all even. The building looks a bit like some crooked Earth Caste contractors took a few shortcuts in the construction. The little lego details are awesome and a nice touch, but it's a shame that the walls are so crooked. Even walls and a great paintjob will show off your details better!
