In answer to your question - yes it does loose, theres a technic axle which you pull to let it go - doesn't hurl bricks very far though.
This set was one I always wanted as a kid, but now own as a big kid! Its a great expander set
I was thinking of making up a Lego 80's style castle set up with 6086 - Black Knight's Castle as the keep, and 6085 - Black Monarch's Castle and
6059 - Black Knight's Stronghold as the curtain wall, 6085 obviously being the main gatehouse and perhaps 6059 would be a back or side entrance.
I would need to come up with other wall units and could perhaps add Inns and stables much like Lego did for the Lion crusaders range.
The difficult part would be trying to fit 6034 - Black Monarch's Ghost into it somewhere, and also what use could it realistically have...
Sorry if this went off topic a bit but in conclusion 10/10 for set regardless of the much debated odd uniforms of the soldiers
