Very good MOC! Makes me want to go back home so I can build :( .

I like the Stone pillars that the prisoners are chained to, the Tudor buildings and their stained glass, the landscaping, and the stable I really like! Overall its a great Moc, my only beef is with the ground inside the castle being all the same color.

Yes! Very impressive. I've always loved half-timbered architecture, and yours isn't letting me down! :wink:

Great stuff! I love the use of the chains on the stairs. Very nice. I don't think I've seen that application anywhere else. Too bad the video on the Moc page doesn't show your powerfunctions features off! Thanks for sharing.

Wow!( :twitch: ) The stain glass is wonderful, the stairs are wonderful, everything is perfect! The houses are as realistic as can be, and if I combined all of my pieces together, I couldn't even build the gatehouse! :D ! Jealousy :(

HOLY SCHAMOLY!!!!
I love it, especially the Brown Tudor building! Can you post a picture on how it's made (The diagonal black parts)? The wall design is excellent!

The first thing I said when I saw this was "Whoa!". Its so detailed and. . . and. . .did I say detailed :) ? Seriously the houses are amazing, as well as the castle. Nice job!

Great work. It is a very very impressive first castle. I love the tudoring as well, great use of those slopes. I also like the chains as a railing for the stairs. The landscaping is fantastic and the castle conforms to it very well. The whole thing is massive and yet has all the small touches that make it so :shock:

Please keep your creations coming. You two do some great castle work together.

My only suggestion would also be to change the floor of the castle some. The stable for instance is much too paved looking for my taste. Perhaps some tan to represent sand or straw that the horses reside upon.

Thanks very much for the nice feedback!

We had to finish the castle in time for the exhibition Bricking Bavaria. We will continue to work on it. Annette already made some plans: The wizards insist on an own tower before the castle, a blacksmith is missing, and we want to have a tournament in front of the castle. We will also take care about the floor within the castle. You guys are right: much too clean for a castle.

I saw this on MOCpages the other day and enjoyed looking through all the pictures. I don't have a lot to add to what's already been written, except I really like it. My favorite part apart from the castle is all the mini-figs posed all over the place. Gives it a busy feeling and makes it very interesting to look at.

Hi again,

some people were asking about how the Tudor style has been build. Check this out: http://www.classic-castle.com/howto/art ... rHTML.html

Cheers,

This is amazing. I've been looking at this again and again since you've posted it, trying to get the right words for it. Still can't find 'em, so I'll just say ,,amazing" again and leave it at that. :)
