    Wip May/June 2012 Lite Entry: Broadway Tower

    This challenge is more in my range, I'll never be very good at normal drawing.

    I plan on making a floor plan battlemap of Broadway Tower, a small castle / tower in England. It has a rather unique design that I thought would be fun to work with. I am not trying to replicate it, I am just going to use the basic layout.

    I haven't started the map yet but here is a copy of the picture this will be based on.

    Whoa, that looks cool. I'm still brainstorming on this one but depending on how my weeks go this month I hope to enter something.

    I figured out the basic shape by looking at several pictures shot from different angles.

    I don't know if this will be of any use, but FYI ...

    Hey, even if it isn't of any use I was happy to read it. I didn't know they would bother with such things. And Bogie, it looks like you were dead on accurate as far as layout so good job there.

    Thanks Lyandra

    This is the first floor, 90% finished. Just have a few details to add. Anyone have any other ideas what to put in here?

    Hmm, a place to hang your muddy clothing or at least a cloak? Unless that's what the armored statues are for? hehe.
