fantasy castle

Postby LEGOFREAK » Mon Sep 27, 2004 5:36 am

Ok, here is my latest, and I'll be adding some detail pics over the next couple of weeks. I am too tired right now, and my job is hitting its busy schedule, so I just have the three preview pics.
They are a little large though to show SOME detail.
Let me begin by saying that this castle was the most fun to build. I didn't worry about 'realistic' details, because I wanted to go for that fantasy feel. And I like the way it turned out.
Every room opens up, and there are stairs leading everywhere. There is a spring for fresh water, and Alex's orcs can reach the wall with their big attack ladder for fun.
In fact this whole castle was designed with my son in mind. I wanted us to be able to actually play through the whole thing. :)

so anyway - hope you can judge for yourself how well I did (or didn't) do.

If fantasy is the keyword you did a wonderful job. You made a distinctive difference between a “real” castle and a fantasy one and that is why I like it so much.

Well done 8)

I like it. Very well built. Can't wait to see the insides though. As always keep up the good work LFreak.

I rteally like the spring cascading down into the lake/pond. Also noteworthy are the wattle and daub walls built into the tower and the one wall of the castle. Very nice, Mr. Freak. :D

You managed a fantasy castle without being outlandish. It has a great feeling of growing out of a rocky promontory. The castle looks like one that is actually lived in with some wonderful assymetrical details.

Saw this on Brickshelf. Loved it. The spring/waterfall is the best part, I think. Although it all looks good. Kinda organic.

Hello!


That's looking good. As if it came right out of a children's book. And that's good.


Bye

Well, I don't really have alot to say that hasn't already been said. I love the way it looks as if the castle were carved into the mountain, and formed around it, instead of just building up. Good work.

Wow!

Hey Freak,

I absolutly love this Castle. This is the best of your MOCs IMO, well except for maybe that wolf monster.

I really love your building style. You show us that great castles don't have to be built out of 100,000s of bricks. And you show us that its ok to throw in a premold every once in a while.

Great Work,

I really can't wait for the rest.

LF, my friend! Once again, you've brought me back from the dead.

Fantastic work! I loved the raised landscape and drawbridge -- all of the foalige was a nice touch and the barred window (door?) works great!
