Fluff.

Streets were used for vehicles that would have to follow the path. I would think the Toll would be for those types of things, and not people on foot, who obviously could walk around.

Or, the wall surrounding this Toll could have been demolished, and this is what's left. Prior to the comet, the wall prevented such thoughts. Now, it's simply a nice ruin to snipe from.

@ Lord Xi - see plan below for proposed layout. What I was really after was constructive critism about the model/construction etc...

I would like a few more pictures at different angles, to get a better idea of the whole thing. Otherwise, looking pretty promising!

Haha, I when I first saw this, I read it as a Troll house and was even more confused than Lord Xi.

It's looking really good. The only comment I have is that some of the destroyed walls are still perfectly straight lines.

NICE START! The building has alot of interesting angles & different levels; it should be a VERY cool piece when all done up. It looks to be a fine piece games-wise. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! thumbsup

now you need to build some walls to stop people sneaking round the sides of the tollhouse, maybe small platform along the top where guards could have walked. acts as a movement way through your battlefield and vantage points.

how about some "natural" barriers? i'm talking about strange mutated vines / bushes / hedges, maybe some blockades of barrels, old corpses, planks.. something like that Smile

just a suggestion ^^

Medieval tollhouses normally straddled the ramp of a bridge. Or a road through a marsh.

It was before the comet struck. But maybe the blast moved it away from any choke-points...
