Yes, indeed, really neat castle, but I don't like the BURPs in this MOC at all. I'd get rid of them and replace with bricks, or at least flesh them out a bit with some bricks or tiles..

The BURPS look out of place indeed, but other than that it's a great render of a worthy MOC :)

If he put something over them, they'd look okay.

Yeah, i agree, the BURPs were a quick-fix for not wanting to do any landscaping (because I'm not very good at it :oops: ). I hope to replace them with better canyon-ish cliffs. Thanks for the feedback.

Hmm, actually I LIKE the BURPS there. I agree some more bricks on them would be nice, but In this scale they actually work a lot better than Minifig scale, I would say...and did say... :roll:

hello castlers,
thought i'd let y'all know that i did finally add some "rocks" to flesh out the BURPs in the Castillo de las Lajas castle, though as expected, i didn't do a very good job, but there's a waterfall. you can click the picture link or click in my signature to see it. :)

It is the medieval city of Byzantium, the queen of cities.I made some important monuments of the city, meant to represent the city as before the year 1204: the Hippodrome, the Valens Aqueduct and most important, the Church of Hagia Sophia.

Thank you! :o Yup its a hat ^^

Your creation looks awesome too btw!

I think its cool to see all the different pieces usage in micro scale. Everybody thinks up new ways to implement the lego pieces. And some ideas blow my mind sometimes :)

EDIT:
btw i resized my entry pictures to make them fit within the rules limit, so my folder will be public again soon.
