This is the Welsh castle Beaumaris. I have done my best to recreate it, but due to a lack of angle options and doors, it is not possible to recrate completly. It is VERY beautiful, and is quite a marvel just to look at in the zoom out focus.
I have attached a picture of the castle, to show what it looks like in real life.
It is a good map, though you should re-postion the fire arrow pits on the front towers. It was very annoying trying to get the guy to stay near the thing to light the pitch. Other than that its good!

Excellent introduction and faithful recreation of Beaumaris, right down to the mill and granary!
Perhaps slightly too faithful, for this extremely defensible castle is totally unbalanced in favour of the defender... if the attacker even makes it to the outside wall, it's a major accomplishment!
Having said that, I'm a big fan of Beaumaris, so I shan't complain, since it's such an excellent castle, and the reproduction is near flawless!
