Well done! It's nice to see someone already MOCing in the new theme/faction.

The landscaping is quite nice, as are the structures.

My favorite thing, however is the 'evolution' of the castle. You built it as it would have been built, first rougher, then more complete!
I LOVE IT! This is the first time that's ever been done, to my knowledge, but leaves me with a TON of ideas for a future project.

Bravo!!! :D

I agree with Chris, this is the first time I have seen an evolution of a MOC like this, and I think it is a great idea, really it gives you 2 MOCs out of 1.

There should be a contest based just on this idea alone!

It is cool to see the new faction being utilized in a Moc.

Sweet idea. MOC Evolution.

Perhaps just a building challenge even.

Great to see someone MOCing with the new Castle theme this quick. Although, IMO, the knights would look better with a black castle...

This is very good! I like how the place is complete--there's a military fortification, stables, living quarters and a body of water. The raised landscaping does a lot for this MOC too. I particularly like the fence made of tiles and antennae.

Nice use of the new minifigs! How many sets did you get to create this scene?

Very very nice. The palicade is realistic and the whole evolution idea was a stroke of genious. :D I wish I had that many of the new knights (currentely I have zero).

I look forward to the possible part three.

A little square for my tastes but I really like the courtyard scene. I also like the fence along the "inside" of the battlements. I don't like how many of the new faction skellies & soldiers you have. *Jelous

The main castle looks a bit off-balance. The way the front juts out compated with the absolute smoothness of the other sides doesn't really work.

That said, I like the MOC. Wonderfully random with the rock and the trees are a nice touch.

Very cool idea. Real castles evolve and grow this way. All in bley I would guess? For the next step I'd like to see the small "keep" grow. Nice use of the pond, the serfs and everyday things like the stable. Clever idea altogether, and well executed.
