I can only work with what I've got. :wink: I agree that brown would've been better, but I've had my black "Benedictines" for a while. Essentially they are Darth Maul with new head and yellow hands -- not much of a customization, eh. That's for the chorister monks. I have a third somewhere in my Lego room, but I can't find it right now. So, for Brother Edel and Brother Truman I had to improvise with peasant cowls.

This whole theme is my homage to the Brother Cadfael Mysteries.

Cool, a castle line with something other than grey as the base colour. Well done!

Yea, it's very unique! I really like it! I think the colour scheme is great too! I like how you didn't make it war based, instead you did just a practical castle with the Kings room and Gazebo, ect. Good luck!

Also, footsteps, I absolutely love your theme as well! Awesome idea doing a Monastery. I also really like the custom decals, it really spuces the them up. Good luck to you too!

Thanks guys! I wanted to do something different than grey, but not an evil faction using black. So I chose white, and almost ran out building that castle. I also incorporated large pieces such as the slopes for the roof of the castle from a snowboarding set, and the entrance to the castle uses parts for an underwater set. This helped cut down my use of basic white bricks. Well I'm glad you like it, and DARKspawn you entry looks excellent, Lost Viking I really like how your sets look like original castle sets, and footsteps your creations are absolutly fabulous, you didn't do a war theme, but you didn't do an agricultural theme either, it's truly unique. I wish you all luck (and myself)! I had a great time doing this contest.

Hmm... Only four entries. I hope that we see a late flurry today, although it will probably make life easier on Sava to only have to judge four.

Expect at least 1 more.
This has nothing to do with lego or castle
