Wow, those windows are sick... and I mean that awesome-est, jaw-dropping-est, nicest kind of way. Kudos to Stuifzand!

Not to be a nudge, but wouldn't you want to let him post it himself? He's been around...

Looks pretty good! What are the two guys lugging around in the cauldron?

This is a sweet MOC! I love the beards as decor. on the top of the gate. Brilliant. The wondows are sweet, and the rest of the detailing is just amazing!

Great job!

Awesome castle. Explosive detailing. It's both realistic and fanciful, and very European-looking to me. (Not that there are a lot of American castles :roll:)

Another wonderful inspiration point...

That is really amazing. I wonder if there is an interior to the building?

Anyway, this is most definitely an amazing castle. The gate and the wall it's in are both beautiful. I love the roof, the dormer tower things, and the great beards-as-detailing.

The big hall is beautiful as well. The use of these pieces as windows is ingenious, and the roof and tower on this are just as great as the other. The torches by the door (with steps!) and the railing around the porch are great. The well and the miscellany wooden bits are nice, and I also love the pecking chickens. Finally, the field and trees are great.

That cart is cool too.... Here's another, clearer, pic of it.

I never doubt it when you say 'awesome' referring to a MOC, but this really blew me away just the same!

Seeing this 'late' there is alot take I already would have said, but yup, the windows, beard decor, landscaping, foliage, and overall shape of the building are superb!

I also see quite a few non-production parts in there, which is cool!

This is an excellent MOC. Stuifzand has really outdone herself this time.

EDIT: Sorry, I thought Stuifzand was a guy... changes made.

I showed these mocs to my colleagues at work. They were very impressed with the overall presentation and design.

This would have to be one of the best looking castle MOCs I have seen for a while. This MOC is awesomely good. This is the style of castle I want to build, it looks very German in its design.

I love the construction of the windows, the gate design, the ivy on the walls, the cart, the detail around the well, the servants carrying the cauldron, the roof and even the tree - it is all truly amazing.

Soup of course, as the queen has a terrible cold. That is a yellow handled ladle, not a minifig body part (if that is what you were referring to).

I like how it's made mostly of 1x2s. That gives it more of a later Middle Ages feel to me, as though masonry has gotten more refined through the years. The well construction is very nice too, classic rustic European style. And what a clever use of gray beards! Lots to like here.
