The second of the Roman watchtowers that I made can be seen here and and by simply altering the wallpaper effect and a few subtle differences it looked quite different. It was meant for a more Eastern Roman detachment and as such I felt that the stucco and brick effect was more appropriate to give the right feel to the piece. It was made in the same size and way as the first watchtower but the inclusion of a wooden ladder was the main difference. This was made by cutting and gluing together some wooden coffee stirrers and painting them to get the right effect.

Great. But I'd remove this gothic arch from the door. A very nice gaming piece. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the feedback and well spotted on the archway. For my purposes it was close enough, looked nice and all I had at the time. Same with the brickwork which is actually modern but again looked close enough.
