To avoid the "bunkerness" in the look I'd have to separate the outer walls from the inner fort while building the roof. Let's see how that would look when finished:
Yeah, that's pretty awesome, but not really what I'm going for.
Actually, this still gives me an idea - there's way too little menacing with spikes in this here dwarf fortress.
I'll need more glass.

A roof, eh? That could work. It certainly has the scale factor (more than 5000 soap bars are necessary) on its side, though I'd prefer this fort to remain a fort - adding a roof would turn it more into a bunker.
Maybe a giant 3D statue?
Sorry, they all had generic blue shoes only so far :).
As for the captives, the original plan was:
1. Steal their pants (and then the rest of whatever they have)
It worked - and much better than simply killing them and selling their stuff, since hauling a cage with a goblin inside takes just one task, while hauling all of the crap that drops when the goblin dies takes way more than 10 (which now can be done in a safe enviroment while starting close to the depot) - and that's from each goblin. But now that I have exhausted this only sort of renewable resource (I've got a graveyard to protect, so now my champion speardwarves simply WTFPWN the goblins way before they get even close to the cage traps - even so the hidden trolls usually manage to topple a statue or two) I'm left with a lot of naked trolls and goblins in my cages and I'm waiting for the inspiration to strike. Here's what I've got so far:
1. Mod the captives to be butcherable
2. Kill them, one by one, in some ridiculus way (may involve baby megabeasts if I manage to capture a match for my hydra or my dragon).
3. Butcher the dead.
4. Convert their fat into tallow.
5. Convert the tallow into soap.
6. Build something (I don't know what yet, but it will be big) from the soap.
So, what do you think?

Recording this at 150 FPS may not have been the greatest of my ideas. Watch this movie at Rate:300 to see the actual performance as seen from this side of the monitor.
