Especially for those of us who find individual vignetts just a little too...well...individual.

Thanks for sharing and God Bless,

Thanks, everyone, for your comments and kind words. To answer some questions...

wlister wrote:What idea came first, the castle or the vingettes?

The vig. When I was working on "Weapons-Testing":
I built the wall in the background, and it dawned on me that I could actually create an entire castle wall using several 8x8 baseplates. I ended up going with a 3x3 base layout (it was difficult enough to think of 9 vig ideas - imagine coming up with 16 vig ideas for a 4x4 base layout!).

The tower. This was one of the castle vigs that I had no idea what to do with (and it shows). When I build, I get new ideas: and the whole bungee idea just sprang from my mind (pun intended). :D

Very inventive Nelson! 9 great vignettes wrapped up in a castle. A simple yet masterful stroke. Wonderful execution.

Yes, good idea, and Moc at the Legoland scale are not so easy to create!

Ingenious! Those vignettes are all great; they're all simple and well executed. I love the way you did the kings tomb, by the way; good idea!

This is very nice. It's like a take on the whole tlc Harry Potter concept, but SO much better done.

A great idea and carried out very well.

I'm back, and so is Castle!

I really wish TLC would release a castle set like this, where all the sections put together form one nice set.
It's an excellent idea!
The Vignette is great!! I'll have to copy your idea in some future mocs!
