Did you try another layer of escarpments behind the building too? See if it works?
I only have four escarpments, but I didn’t try that - I was going for a tower nestled in a hillside, not a tower “on” a hill. Maybe if I pick up more escarpments eventually...

Another cracking build Law and one we had not thought to integrate a building into escarpments. Love how you populate you builds with minis.

More escarpments are now becoming more of a must.

4'x6' is plenty...having broken down my last set up after the gaming session today, this inspires me to try some things along this line of build.

But I think you kind of oversold it with that title.
HAHAHAHAHAHA

People know me around here - I ain’t Sorn or Invincible Overlord or Rabbit Burner. If someone wants to see an actual 10’x12’ Helm’s Deep layout, it’ll be done soon enough - just not by li’l ol’ me!

I love how the escarpments look abutting the right up to the stone walls.
Very cool layouts Law. 8-) 8-)

Keep-em-coming. ;)

I love you playing and trying things Law. This is a cute little tower in a (small) hillside. Did you try another layer of escarpments behind the building too? See if it works?

But I think you kind of oversold it with that title.

Once I realized I could place banks along the upper level, it was a lot more natural-looking. Really happy with the final results.

Was playing around with forts in the wilderness and escarpments and decided to try embedding a tower in the face of the hill. Definitely took some creative leaps with the grid -- the boundaries of the layout ate up most of the mismatch, it ends in a sort of jumbled mess.

Experimented with various approaches before settling on one I really liked.
