Terrain doesn't (I don't think) - but there IS a limit on picture size. Yours is 700+ high, whereas the rules clearly state they must be smaller than 800x600 (600 high).

Here is my first entry, it is a sky-castle. It is called the Moonlight Citadel.

This castle is heavily armed for protection against roving airship

pirates...Included in the pictures you can see a small, microfig airship...the

white blocks represent clouds, not snow.

The binoculars represent cannons...the sky castle also has a working

drawbridge...

here is a cover shot...

and here is the folder...

Also the keep opens up to an interior.

PS: the blue cones with red hats are mini-mini figures.

I included interior detail, such as a staircase and stone columns, the kind of "mountain halls" that dwarves carve...I also included a micro-fig Smaug, who rests on his horde of stolen treasure...

here are a couple of pics of the micro Smaug...

Hey cool micro moc Tristram.

I like the castle, or is it more of a palace then a castle?

Whoops! I didn't mean to double post. Just wanted to edit in a second pic.

I was going for the classic yellow castle look, and I got carried away! So yeah, it looks more of a palace.:D

The second pic shows the red drawbridge a little better, although when I resized it, it ended up being smaller than I anticipated.

Glad you like it Graynar. It's been broken down already - because it borrowed bricks from other sets.

Wow, Boses I like what you did with this one. Especially the mini mini figs. I'm sure others including myself will draw ideas from that! :D
