Swweeettt!

Way to make an already cool MOC come alive. Even if those pesky BF did win. ;-)

Nice battle scene on an already sweet castle.

Awesome! I like the unique shape with the angled wall. I'm also really impressed by how you also showed it after the battle which was a nice addition to a great creation.

A beautiful castle comes to a beautiful end. Those ruins are nicely done. It's a skill that I don't have much of, but I always love to see ruins and time-lapses. Is there any possibility of seeing this in "present day"?

Very impressive ruining going on there.... I think you've captured the essence of a ruined castle quite well.

However, I have to question the state with a blue plume. Doesn't seem right to me.

And wear are the Town figs? It being 800 years later, I was expecting so see some.

So dang awesome. The way the pictures come into being, brilliant! I love the history that can be made from the pictures, "It was great at it's peak of history, until they kidnapped a warlock and was invaded and now is in ruins."
I love it! The MOC is amazing, superb and fantastic!

I barely have any "modern" town figs except for a few police officers & some fire fighters.
I wanted the castle to have an "abandoned ruin" type feel to it.
Let's assume the tour bus hasn't arrived yet 8)
However, I have to question the state with a blue plume. Doesn't seem right to me.

I don't have any grey or black plumes.....Im not even sure if there are any grey or black ones?
The statue looked kinda plain without a plume so I added one.

There's a black one in the Castle Guard set. It's pretty tough to get cheap, though, so blue is a good color :wink:

Wow, that's awesome. You also did some great work with that battle, really cool. Even though its kinda small, I really like the stone path the runs along the castle grounds. I also like the actual walls themselves. You have them enough studs thick to make it realistic, mine are never bigger than three studs. Great job!

I think you captured the ruins part very well. It's just sad to see such a MOC came to an end :( :wink:

This castle is quite awesome, but my favorite pics are of the ruins. There is a special skill to creating ruins and you have it!

Hey Jacob,

I didn't get a chance to post on this earlier. I really like all the details on this one, like this tower with the red timber part, your gates in the stable stalls, the spiral staircase and the way this road fades from cobbled to mud. Of course the round keep and the angled walls are very striking. The ruins idea is also very cool. As with others, I think some tourists roaming the grounds would be good there. Awesome MOC.

Wow, very cool MOC with nice story around it.

Very clear design of the castle and fantastic keep. Hope to see after some tourists roaming the inspection of the ruin by aliens. ;)
