Overwatch by J-Humphries Overwatch by J-Humphries
Yep, another fortress, of the motte and bailey pattern. Castles are really fun to paint, and it's rewarding to paint the stone texture from scratch.

Some say that stone keeps are a pain to heat, but I'd live there anyway, because the only way you could keep it warm is with enormous fires in the middle of the room. I'd say that's a plus.

Enjoy!

The only problem would be that chimneys hadn't been invented(or been forgotten since the Romans)so castles were smoky.  Toilets were not a problem for the lord, though, he usually had the only one in the castle; a stall that emptied on the moat.

Yeah, but where goes the smoke from the enormous fires? The wetness in winter? And let's better not think about the toilets... ;P
It looks great anyways....also great to live. No wolf could blow this in. [link] ;)

LOL Yeah, and since smoked meat last longer you'll most likely live forever. And its all without any fantasy magic. ;P
