A castle with drawbridge.

Postby RebelRock » Sat Feb 16, 2008 10:16 pm

Here's a little number I cooked up over the past few days. After all that rock, I really didn't feel like connecting 4000 1x2 bricks for the water so I just used a sheet of plastic. I hope you can forgive me. :wink:

Not to much minifig action in this 'cause I blew my imagination on the castle. :P

Man, it is hard to take pictures of big models. Annoying to say the least. I had to drag this sucker outside to get enough light and then the sun went into hiding. :roll:

Nevertheless, this is probably one of the coolest things I've built. :)

I like.

Of course, your pervert needs a more perverted looking face. I suppose it doesn't matter though as he's definitely getting what's coming to him :wink: . Guess it goes to show you that you don't mess with a relative of slave-girl Leia.

Man, that's one awesome castle. There's something about it that appeals to me; & I think it's the abundant use of arches & 1 x 1 round bricks ;) The structure itself is very interesting & well constructed.

Those minifig guards are very original too - they look cool but seem a little out of place in a medieval setting, but they add a point of interest more than detract from the creation, don't get me wrong. I think the sheer awesomeness of the creation makes up for the lack of base, especially as the landscaping itself is so well done.

I still really want to see some interior work though, man :)

Great work as always, Rock

Now that you mention it, you do like that style, huh? :wink:

Absolutely beautiful. I love the wall designs on the gate-tower especially.

I have to say it is a very nice castle. WOW! I'd be proud of it too.

The slave girls at war kind of confused me but the guy with the telescope was funny... still odd that they can afford a castle but not clothing...

I was thinking the same at first, but then I just thought of them as banished or in exile from their native country. But this is not to ditract from a very nice Castle. Well Done!

I actually didn't notice the water was plastic until you said something. :lol: It really doesn't take away from the moc at all. I like your style quite a bit. You always seem to have tall towerish castles and the bikini women theme is always a constant. Great work.

Darkspawn's got some good competition.
:lol:

This has a very nice use of unique and "hard to use" parts. I really love all of the detail and crenelation. Nicely done!

Wow. Not much else to say really.

This is a very inspiring build, Rocko. The whole thing is so clean and beautiful. It almost makes me wanna cry... ... But I'll restrain myself.

You've developed a awesome style of your own, Rocko. My favourites in all of your creations are the walls/windows. Apparently, "boring big grey walls" don't exist in your building repertoire!

My second fave is your "unique" choice/placement of minifigs. :D

Nope, I can't. If you have the pieces, you should use 'em. Get to work! :wink:

Great creation! I particularly like the castle's proportions and the view along the drawbridge.

The peeping tom was an amusing touch. It certainly brought a smile to my face. :)
