You'll remember the castle talked about earlier this year in this post:
A german friend of mine informed me that "Schlafendrache" didn't quite make sense in german, and recommended a name change. So ... Drachenschlaf it is! The Castle of the Sleeping Dragon.
I also posted a MOC announcement to LUGNet.

I won't bother repeating the post here, so go there for more info.
I finished the castle, and brought it to NWBrickCon 2005. I've updated the island with a new outpost and tower, modified and improved the manor, and several towers (including the "dinky little tower"
). I also built a medieval cog (ship) which I think turned out great.
Castle made a much better showing at NWBC this year, with several outstanding medium-sized castles, and a fair number of smaller castle MOCs. I was really honoured to have Castle Drachenschlaf voted "Best in Show" by both the public, and my fellow AFOLs. Very cool!
Please post your comments and questions, and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
