Hey all,

Check out Castle Brloh, by Linhi. It is currently under siege by the army of Aki, as part of the Roztoky display by Czech AFOLs from the forum Kostky.org.

The color scheme makes it look like something out of medieval Europe. The battle elements look accurate and creative and the building itself is well-constructed with many historical elements. In sum, it's a great work. If only there was an inside.

Excellent. It's really nice to see dark tan getting a look-in on castle these days.
I love the thatched roof, fences and ladder.
Finally someone with the resources to do so unleashes the potential of the flipper! :lol:

I love the siege trenches and barricades with the cannon and archers firing on the castle. The ladders are nicely built and the whole scene really looks great.

This is an amazingly realistic castle. I love all those tiny little details like the outer wall with its towers and roofs, the gates and the narrow windows. The keep is nicely done and the construction site of the main tower is breathtaking. The siege is very beautiful as well. The ladders, the shelter of the cannon, everything.

I have one tiny thing to criticise, because I think the castle is supposed to be historically accurate (otherwise I would not mention this): The helmets (nasal and great helm) and the shields (especially the kite shield) of the defenders. They were not used in the 15th or 16th century. Even the grilled helmet does not fit, since it was hardly used in combat. As for the helmets, you should use the Sallet of the Dragon masters and/or the Barbute of Knight’s Kingdom. Concerning the shields, well that is a problem, as LEGO has never produced a real late medieval shield.

Hey,

Thanks for that chart of the history of shields, btw. That's a very clear depiction.

Here's another gallery by Jindroush with a ton of Brloh pics (click "up" for more pics from the Kostky.org display).

I think this can be summed up by "amazing".

I guess I could point out some specific, especially well liked bits, but I'm too much in awe right now. Maybe later. P:
...and that's how Equestria was made!
