This week’s set is 6040
Blacksmith Shop, released in 1984 for the Lion knights, was the first modular castle shop. Along with 6061 Siege Tower, this set could increase the size and change the shape of your 6073 Knight's Castle or 6080 King's Castle.
It has a horse, a forge, an anvil, a blacksmith, and various tools. A Lion axeman guards the top of the wall. Rare pieces such as the brown cape and pitchfork can be found in this set. Instructions are included for a tower and cart alternate model.
