That is a beautiful fortress! If there is one piece of advice I could give, though, it would be to buy a nice big bucket of Army Painter Quickshade, and apply it especially in the recesses of your work, to give it a more defined look. Basically what happens is you get muddy dirt and extra shading definition all in one go.
You can also do it with watered down dark brown paint.
But still, it's a wonderful table, very atmospheric.

The building on the right has some moss effect on it, which is real nice. You should definitely do that on your other buildings too. If you paint some watered down green and yellow paints on your buildings, and some watered down brown on your streets, you will see your city comes totally alive.
ps. I love the boat!!

Thanks for the additional photos...INSPIRING sights! You are at the stage where you can tinker with the board, adding little detail that personalize it...posters, odd bits of rubble, grass growing through the cracks, treasure left behind by the former residents or guarded by the current ones, etc. Elaborate terrain like your board is never truly done; i.e., there is always some little thing that could be done to it or added to it to make it more like image of the place that you have somewhere in the back of your mind. As it stands now, it is a BEAUTIFUL creation. VERY WELL DONE!
