Stunning Castle! The mottled roofs are nice. I wouldn't normally make the main color for the roofs both red and black, but you pulled it off phenomenally. All the angled walls are very beautiful, too. My favorite part, though, is all of the wooden walkways along the walls, especially the part with the wood paneled roof. Absolutely great moc!
Great job. I too am a great fan of the wooden buildings clinging onto the wall, they add more life and realism. You have great detailing all around and still keep the castle from looking crowded. I also enjoyed the colors mixed into the wall, you didn't overdo the mottling,(something that I often have trouble with) and the earthy tones make the castle look weathered, and not shiny new. The shapes and colors are beautiful, I enjoyed looking at your castle.
Second gate for peasants, farmers and cattle was built. Nobels keep entering the castle across the drawing bridge right to the palace tract. Castle palace and tower entrance are guarded behind wooden bridges from both sides.
This is one of my prefered castle for this year (and maybe for some other years). It is very realistic and well done, with all the structures that a fortified castle contains. You make your castles slowly, but the result is here : perfect. Just one question : did you take inspiration from a real castle (German one by example)?
Wow, so much to like here, I really like the irregularity of your structures, also the stonework and roof mottling is fantastic. Great castle design, compact but complete. And very nice landscaping and minifig action. I've probably missed something so consider me suitably impressed by that too Excellent!
