I created this some time ago but never released it. Given that I'm busy updating all the Tudor external tiles to the newer version, this seemed like a good time to finally release the gatehouse and barbican.
This is in the style of the older OpenForge 1.0 stone series (including that it's an "edge" tile). Still, it's one of my favorite pieces, and I'm super excited to get it out for the world to see. I've updated the gatehouse to work with the OpenForge 2.0 style bases. This piece and the pieces I'll release on Friday (the barbican) are what inspired me to do the changes I did in OpenForge 2.0, as I couldn't figure out a good way to add an additional story to this, and thus the bases were born.
I'll probably eventually replace this with a cut-stone version, but I think these pieces are too awesome to never see the light of day. These and the rest of the barbican got a *wow* reaction from players when I used them in game.
Also, this is the first set of photos I'm taking in a light box I made with the support I've gotten from all of you. Let me know whether you like the white- or black-backed pictures better. I think the white-backed pictures are much clearer, so I'm prone to move forward with the white backgrounds.
