What is exactly the problem ? The lacking brush to form the arch top or the textured alignment ?
Using QuArK, I'd solve the first this way:

Most of the time, snap to grid is your friend. :) This example uses a 8 qu grid, which works fine for most maps.
The misaligned textures are more complicated, I don't know any way to reliably make them look right without a lot of hand tweaking.
(that's why most of these cases I'd go for some texture that don't require alignment at all)
I know FrikaC made a cgi-bin version of the quakec interpreter once and wrote part of his website in QuakeC :) (LordHavoc)

Textures look fine to me, but its missing the top point. Easily fixed.

Here is one I just started. I used grid 4 for the trim work only.

I only did it cause you posted yours.. :lol:

Another 40 mins to add the bars and so some texturing. I had medieval thoughts in my head initially, but had no idea how to texture it that way well so I went Egyptian.

If this was in a map I would imagine it would have lots of blood and lava pools if not a river some where... :idea:

Looks good to me! And you already added wall torches which I had in mind for somewhere on mine as well nice. :)

A few lighting ideas before bed.
