Good, quite good. I enjoy the realistic feel about it. You did a great job avoiding the big grey wall syndrome, both by use of different greys, and varying the depth of the walls. I espically like the wooden structures on the top. They not only add to the realism, but give it a feeling of age, as though it had stood for a couple centuries. A quite excellent creation.

Next will be modern town building. We (Lugpol members) are building rather big town diorama. So that`s in my mind now. And later?
Probably Dwarves Brewery or Blacksmith :)

I`ve added some pictures of the back of this building

Hey Kris,

This is a gorgeous MOC. I particularly like the hoarding and the porticullis. How did you attach the tiles on the wagon to the ___ (flex tubing? ribbed hose?)?

I used almost the same technique to make a wheel a couple of days ago, and now i see it here, we had the same idea :P

Like everyone said, this is a very nice MOC. I don't have much to say that hasn't been said yet.

Wonderful, Kris, wonderful! I like the fact of how real it looks with that (awesome) mottling. the moat is pretty cool to. But the thing I like the most is that section of hoardings! They are amazing. I will definately use your technique in the future.

It`s a very simple construction. Black bricks 1x1 and black headlights :)

It realy portrays the scene of life at a castle. :)
