Details: There are a lot of different strategies for making a base for your castle MOC. Many go with a simple square baseplate, while others create a base fitting the shape of their castle or scene pretty closely. I love what Lando did here, though. The elongated shape captures a slice of what the watchmen are watching, and implies a vast environment around the MOC with perhaps even more finesse that building the environment would have. The thin yet tall tower adds to the effect. I, for one, find the clean, unorthodox shape appealing in and of itself, particularly when it contains such a beautiful shoreline. Oh, and I suppose the fantastic tower deserves a mention too- be sure to check out the great arches and other stonework.
