Wow, that is crazy impressive. I think I realized during the campaign (but maybe it took longer) that the GC was well-designed to serve this purpose - if you buy two, you get enough for all four towers PLUS you can do double high walls (or double thick).

It's not something I could have afforded at the time (I wanted the roofs and small towers and parapets and alleys and LED pieces and so on, had to make tough choices). But for those who could - man, that's impressive.

It reminds me of the old resin River set, that came with three corner turns and one dead end. It was serviceable on its own - BUT I'd you got two sets, you could use four corners to make a small lake (with a tiny island in the middle) and a dead end to complete both ends of your River. It was a way of making multiple sets really useful instead of just "more." The GC design works the same way.

The moss does not bother me - I feel like it should and maybe when I have gotten used to the sheer coolness of it all then the moss will become an irritant - but not yet - too much cool stuff to build.

Looks great, Rabbit Burner!

I said it before and I'll say it again, all that moss on the battlements and crenellations are so distracting. I will definitely be painting over them with stone colours.
I like the moss. But its easy to paint over.

My GC + Watchtower + Many Add-Ons arrived today...I had two slave labor units helping (Youngest Offspring and one of his gaming group, all great kids) and in three hours just got the GC and a one or two Add-Ons upacked and stored.

If I stop to build all goes to hell. I pack and store first.

And half my boxes (nearly 30) are still on the WG table waiting to open and check...

FOrtuhately little damage. SEveral pieces with loose magnets or minor damage.
