Baron's Peninsular castle, Lord Lego 436's castle building contest.
About this creation
This is a entry of mine for Lord Lego 436's castle building contest, it is basically a fortified residence of a lord or Baron it took me about(all together) 9 hours, it is my biggest creation to date, and I reckon I've used about a third of my LEGO collection.
Anywaaaaaaay, the story goes like this. One of the Mace-men guarding the Baron's castle was happily strolling through the courtyard, when he heard a large "SPLASH" coming from the sea below the balcony. He rushed over to the site, and saw that another one of the Mace-men was yelling over the side of the wall, "YEAH THAT'S WHAT YA GET FOR CALLING MY SMELLY, YA STUPID COW!" the Mace-man bellowed over the side of the precipice, the other Mace-man peered over the edge and saw a soldier thrashing in the water, churning up the sea. A boat with the castle's resident apothecary and another soldier appeared from around the corner.
Meanwhile the Baron-dressed in full armor(because he thought it made him look slimming)- was walking the ramparts when he heard a commotion from the other side of his home, he asked one of his knights, stationed in the courtyard to tell him what was happening, the guard replied "dat dere Mace-man just shoved one of the king's soldiers indo da sea e did!" when he finally forced this incoherent babble of words from his bearded mouth he erupted in a fit of hearty laughter, the Baron walked over to the corner of the wall to see for himself, sure enough there was the soldier in the water, whilst one of his Mace-men shook his shield arm aggressively at the scared little man.
Good story? Yes, no, maybe. Whatever it's just to explain it, I'd rather talk about the landscape and the bird.I got the Bird design from Justin Saber Scorpion's, Assassin's creed Leap of faith, but I tweaked the design a little. The nest is in one of the top branches of the tree in the courtyard and it's made of little twigs (actually their hands, black hands, because I didn't have enough brown hands.) and there's a little egg in there too, as well as the awesome trees, there's a little stream coming from the undergrounds below the castle and at the mouth of the river there is some marshes, also another favourite part of the model for me is the rocks, every rock face is smooth, and every surface is done in SNOT, except for the boat. And finally as you may have guessed, the castleis situated on the end of a peninsular, I hope that this MOC is at least good by anyone's standards, and that you enjoyed viewing the page, until next time, toodle loo!
nah just joking, lol.
Fantastic - I'm amazed that it only took you 9 hours, and that you've crammed so much detail into a relatively compact design.
I'm building one on water too, but it's fairly large and doesn't look as elegant as yours.
