Looks lovely so far Torstan, but way too small a preview. would love to see it at twice the resolution.
I be likin this Torstan. Parchment background looks good, as do the wall segments, gives that haphazard under construction feel!! I'd like to be able to read it a tad better also.
I like the video you put up on youtube, by the way

Wow - you really are paying attention
I posted in to my big tutorials thread, but it would make sense to have it here too. So here's a quick video of the progress on this:
Awesome tuto. Didn't know that function actually.
Great! thanks for posting
Torstan, I really like where this is going, but I do wonder about some of the walls at the top of the cliffs. I can see quite a few blind spots where the walls can't be seen by any towers, at least not any close enough to be of any use (ex. the walls to the north and west, but the most blatent is the one to the east). I am not sure if you are still working that out, but I would suggest that either the walls get a bit straighter or add/move a few towers to overlook those blind spots.
imo, unless there is a gate in it, there is no need for a tower in the middle of a straight wall. Unless of course, the next tower is out of bow range....(if at all possible the the entire length of the wall should be under threat from at least one tower.)

Good call - I've tweaked the walls. The walls in this case are pretty substantial - so they can be used as solid archery bases in and of themselves. But a tower certainly helps.
This is now done - here's the final (downsized, as the map itself will be in a map-pack for sale) as well as a couple of detail shots at 100% working resolution:
That looks pretty awesome. I especially like the way the colouring has turned out.
