Alaric's Keep

Really good castle! Great idea to make a dock for flying ships, I like that sort of fantasy. I also like the entrance door, sort of a safe door. The details you`ve put into the moc are cool, the rat, etc. One question about another moc; Are you going to finish the Frontier Fortress? That one is the best in my opinion.
good work,

Michiel

Holy crud, that's an awsome MOC! The foaige on the mountain really adds character, as well as the recessed windows (great design on those :)). The inside is simply AMAZING! The well, rat hole, and spiral staircase are great too! I look forward to seeing more of your MOCs! :)

Probably after Alaric, leader of the Visigoths. That would be my bet anyway.

This is very, very good. I especially liked the well back in my lurker days, and I still do. It's the kind of thing I would do, to have the water go all the way to a source. Once again, very nice.

No, he named the keep after his son. But then his son is probably named after Alaric of the Visigoths. So Josh is right in a round about way. :wink:

You know, I seem to remember something about that now, but I might just be halluci-remembering. :)

Yes. My son is named after Alaric, the Visigoths king who was the first to invade Rome. It was the beginning of the end for the roman Empire and the start of middle-ages. Alaric conquered a big Empire and make is capitale in south France, in Toulouse. And I live in ... Toulouse. Here, Alaric is a great figure.

I have a new castle on the way. Pictures maybe soon ...

Regards,
Denix

Thanks for explaing that Denix. With you living near where the Visigoths were, no wonder you named a castle after their leader!

As written, this castle was crashed before the end. I've lost the pleasure to build it.
I'm working on another ;-)
