Hey all,

Check out the [url=http://www.oab.fr/LEGO/chateau/chateau_lego.htm]Chateau Saint Bernard by Emmanuel Bernard:

A great small fortress. I especially like the way he incorporated BURPs into the walls and the seamless mixing of bricks and panel walls.

I take french at school, and I am sort of able to translate a bit. Apparently the castle is small at the moment, but later he will make it bigger.

Behold the power of the Babel Fish!!!.

This is a nice MOC, but I think the outside walls suffer from too much of the "big grey wall" syndrome. Even still, it is better than I could do.

I really do like those crenellations. That's a design I haven't seen before.

Good to see woodsmen attacking a MOC ; ) I like the mace in the guards hand, it compliments the MOC's scale. I also like the battlemants (though not their reverse), I have been playing around with something similar..

God Bless,

This castle is really well done - it's simple like the King's Castle set, but very detailed and impressive in it's design.

Seems like the big corner tower should be in the front though, to fight off people rushing the drawbridge, not in the back.

Really cool, really well done. This castle would be perfect in a story because it's not overly-complex, but still has a lot to show it's viewers. :-)

Very nice! Lots of details, my favourite bit being the sloped battlements. Some nice SNOT work there. Does he have a brickshelf gallery?
