Alaric's Keep

Postby Denix » Thu Jul 14, 2005 8:16 am

Hello fellow castle men,

After many weeks of labor, I have finally done the built of my new keep. I have dedicated it to my newly born son, Alaric.
I worked hard on it as I never worked hard on a MOC.
The exterior and the interior are finalized.

I hope you will enjoy it.

Some pictures before brickshelf moderation :

Nice work, I hope I can enjoy the other pictures on brickshelf soon!

I like the Idea with the well(?). I'm talking about the hole with water in the lowest floor.

Man, Alaric must be quite the son to merit an awesome creation like this one! :wink:

Great job, man; can't wait to see the rest of the pics.

One quick question: how exactly do you get up to it; is the bridge-like thing which extends from the door to over the edge part of a bridge?

That is quite cool. The well is an ingenious touch. Can't wait till it goes public.

In fact, the bridge is more a dock than a bridge. You can access the keep only by a flying boat.
you'll can see it after moderation :wink:

Wow! Way cool. I'll be doing a landscape very similar quite soon, so this gives me a lot of ideas. How many BURPs does it use, and am I correct in thinking that this is on an area of 64x64?

I've counted 35 BURPS and a very big quantity of dark gray bricks.

You're right. It's based on 4 32x32 plates.

Great! I was thinking more like 40 or 50 BURPs for that project, sets my mind at ease a little. One more question: how tall is it (the mountain only)?

Quite apart from the awesome building (love the bridge), this is one of the best landscapes I've seen lately. :D

EXCELLENT Moc!!!

Hopefully the brickshelf gallery will be public soon!
I love how you did your well and split the entire Keep & mountain base in two!
I haven't seen anything like that before!
That's extremely cool!

Oh, a flying boat. :wink:

Great job. I especially like the well and the landscaping. The vegetation is impressive.
