A small fortress

I built this a few years ago but never really got round to photographing it. I suppose you would call it a generic fortress. It's built form polystyrene tiles, polystyrene packing, balsa wood and textured with a mix of sand, plaster
 I'm not the best photographer so please excuse the rather crappy photos. 
 The cobble stones are textured wallpaper, which at the time seened rather in fashion when it came to building terrain. 
 Its my biggest project when it comes to scratchbuilding terrain, hopefully it was worth the time and effort. 
 I tried to add separate levels and plenty of room for figures. 
 The rocky outcrop on which it stands all adds to it's defensive position. 
 Patches of exposed stonework add to the overall look of what are almost plain looking walls in some respects. 
 Hopefully you've enjoyed looking at this just a fraction of how much enjoyment i got from building it.

 So as always thanks for looking 
Cheers for now Russ
