My Heroes Guild Master 2 entry.
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-Ulchabhan Castle: Great Hall-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Also known as Castle Valeguard, Ulchabhan Castle was the seat of power in Orevale Hold and the home of Sir Caedric Moore and his family. The Commander of the Valeguard had taken up residence in the castle during the last autumn; he and his wife Erin had decided to start a family and their manor on the lake - although cozy - would potentially put children at risk due to its' position outside the walls of the city so it was put up for auction and the two moved into the castle at the heart of the city along with their extended family.

I really like the dragon skull over the mantle! The fireplace is really full of great details also. The exposed beams are a great touch. The fig posing is thoughtful and engaging (I particularly like the kids practicing their swordplay). Banners on the wall are creative. Photography is pretty good. Nice and clean and brightly lit.
For critiques, I feel like you could have done more with the SNOT floor. Maybe add some masonry bricks for texture, or do a neat tapestry or mosaic design. Some of the fig combos seem questionable, such as the chef. I think a peasant-looking fig would have been a better choice. The torsos for the kids also are a little out of place. Lighting is a little harsh. Could use a little more indirect or diffused light (try switching to LED bulbs and maybe back the light source up a little as an easy fix).
