Oh my...DNL...Stage three is impressive, wait all three were impressive...wait, i meant to say they keep getting better...DNL your landscaping is always what catches my eye first, and stage three is not exception. Although, stage three has the best lego "life" associated with the building (those scaffolds for example) of the castle. Stage three is my favorite, however, because of the combination of vivid landscaping and smooth castle walls to compliment both the landscaping and busy activity outside of the walls. Once again, and again, NICELY done...

Impressive work. Very realistic.

For me the only problem isn't with this MOC, seems that step from the castle 2 to 3 is bigger than the previous.

Superbly done! Stuffed full of amazing details and yet it doesn't seem cluttered. Very much in your style.

You have given me a myriad of ideas for building my own castles. I thank you for that, sir!

Once again amazing job and I can't wait for the next stage. Keep building!

You truly are a master builder. You have put so many suttleties into this MOC, its really amazing. I especially love your tower technique...though I am not sure how its done.

That's one amazing MOC. The details are simply breathtaking. Ironically, my favourite detail is the use of the 1x2 bricks and short legs to create longer tunics and mail coats. Incredibly simple yet effective. I love the progression of this MOC, and I like how each stage is full of life. The fact that the costuming is also evolving is another wonderful touch.

If there's a stage 4, I hope that some of the towers/elements from stage 3 stick around. Perhaps an outer curtain wall? In any case, good stuff.

Ditto to all the well-earned and deserved praise above...

Two little details (among many) that I wanted to highlight - the clever hauberk (that's the knee-length mail armor) on the guard in the doorway. A use for the short legs! Secondly, I really like the offsetting in the windows.

Really spectacular and inspirational work and series...

WOW. And I am not talking about World of Warcraft! The development of your castle has been fun to watch. Some nice architectural details as well. Looks like a very defensible castle as well as appealing design. The crane and scaffolding are nice touches as well. Won’t repeat everything already said but again nice work.

There ain't nothin' girlie about a tunic...

Wow! This stage is the best one yet. are there any more stages to come? Because from my opinion, I don't think it can get any better. Loving all the techniques on the windows and arrow-slits. great job Daniel.
