This is my first post at Classic Castle, although I've been a lurker here for a while.
Welcome to the forum! Just a question, would you have joined if Bruce didn't announce the moc?
I'd like to say that this castle wasn't intended to be historically accurate or to serve a purpose like being a fortress or palace. I just built it for the fun of it and for the learning experience.
I suppose that is what LEGO is all about, no. After looking at it again, it looks like a temple of holy place? Was that intended? It looks like some parts of this castle could be turned into entire mocs themselves. This is a great starter moc, I think you should go with it!
I got some criticism at Brickfest about the dark blue chairs. Someone said they looked like Captain Kirk chairs
, but the reason for them was simply that I wanted them to be dark blue, and those were the pieces I had.
I think that is a great idea for a throne!
As far as the arches, I guess you love 'em or hate 'em. They were based on something Jojo built, but I can't find the image in his gallery anymore.
Would this be it by any chance? http://brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=359472
I think that is an awesome technique too. But I would put it on either a temple, university, or in a castle (as long as it is facing in).
Does anyone have suggestions about not having uniform gray walls, aside from mottling them?
Not quite sure what you mean by that. But I would suggest maybe getting some more of those printed pieces. They look awesome in a uniform wall:http://brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=249353
Anyway, thanks again for the comments, see you around the forum,
Sorry if my criticism was a bit harsh in the first post! I'm always a little more critical to nonmember’s moc. Forgive me if I have offended.
I look forward to seeing more of you mocs!
