CCCX - Castle: Round Castle

Postby UKver2.0 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 8:15 pm

Hello all. Long time lurker, first time poster. Here is our (Dad and daughters) entry for the Castle category. Creatively named "Round Castle," it is home to the Lion Knights who are currently hosting some lesser royalty from the Crown and Deer Kingdoms. Round Castle sits in the center of a lake and features a central keep, stables, a church, and a barracks.

Wow! It is not easy to build curved structures and that is not only unique, but highly detailed. Excellent work!

That is great, I love buildings off the grid and this is very good.

Look forward to seeing what else you build.

Great Job on this! :D I don't think I've seen a lego castle built like this before.
The attention to detail is great such as the fire drawbridge and crane.
The water is beautiful too.
More pictures would be much appreciated! :)

I love how there are round parts within round parts. The whole castle is one of the best I've seen. Simply amazing!

This thing is awesome! I'm really hoping you post some more pics when CCCX closes, but for now, my favorite detail is definitely that crane.

Oh, welcome to classic-castle! Epic first post by the way. :wink:

Whoa this is really awesome. there is so many curved and round walls, this had to be hard to keep together when building(knowing when myself have build some rounded walls that are much much smaller, they want to fall apart :P ) Would be nice to see some more images later. Good luck, but my opinion this is the best castle so far in this years CCCX :D

Woah, what did I just come upon here? Your use of the pure 1x2-wall is very impressive, as I've rarely seen it made this big nor this well.

I agree with everyone else, making a round structure is quite a feat. Fantastic work you guys! :)
