I have watched your mocs over the years and I can clearly see how your skills have gotten better and better. This is a really nice moc, a fantastic one. I wish I would have more time to build, but life with two small children has got me in full, but I shall come back one day... for now I shall watch your lovely creations. Best Giorgio
Tops of towers and civilian parts I like most. All wooden parts are nicely done to. It is also good to have mid castle section detailed allthow it is hard to see due to tall walls around.
It is always so hard to break apart MOC like that, but eventualy this is inevitable.
This is amazing.
For the longest time, since I saw this photo on Brickshelf, it's been my favorite MOC by another builder ever. This build is what I aspire to in my own castle building, and the bar by which I measure my own creations.
There's really nothing negative I can say about it, except that you have too many pieces ;-) And I'd love to see some interior shots!
Very nice composition mixing strength and thinness, a subtle balance.
Epic through every detail.
More pics, please!
A MOC to present to people who think that Lego are only for kiddies.
this is a really great castle, very detailed and the tower looks awesome!! if u have the time can u upload a picture zooming the peak of the tower it looks great from afar but i would like to see the details,ty. great job!
Did not expect this when I clicked on the thumbnail. The sheer scale of the moc was not well represented in the thumbnail. Good composition and architecture. A well deserved five disembodied heads for you sir!
Incredible. The only thing I think looks a bit odd is the brown parts on top of the castle, I think it would look better if the main castle was all greys, and then the brown sections converted into separate buildings. Are there any interiors?
I'm really fan of middle age constructions, and i think you've done one of the most beautiful one in MOCpages. It's is absolutly perfecly detailed and realised. Just a question: why a house against the main wall? (I'm telling myself enemies could easily come in this way?!?)
Lego at its absolute finest! Ingenious use of minifig legs!

I like the non-parallel and not all-rectengular shape oh the castle, looks more natural than other builds which are in the direction of the studs and have no other angles than 90 degree. BUt I think the landscape around it could be a bit more differently leveled, but all in all it looks really nice!
This is simply stunning on so many levels, from the well-executed rock faces, to the ingenious use of leg elements for the loopholes, to the detail on the keep set out only by half a stud... all the details work together in a well-composed diorama. Exceptional!
I think it's the levels of gradual heightening that hit me the hardest, it looks just like a medieval castle! And with a dragon flying in circles overhead, it could easily be a fantasy castle, as well. This MOC just continues to impress me with your flawless use of detail. 'Sides all that, it's massive, and that makes it even better!
Really incredible build. Great attention to detail, lots of little scenes, and very cool rock work. I like it! It would have helped the presentation if you hadn't tried to do the whole black space edited in under the ground. I found it very distracting, so it really hurt your presentation. Other than that, kudos to you!
As I mentioned on Flickr, the height on this one really sings to me. I love how there are visual "markers" (in the way of structural elements) that lead the eye up and up to the highest tower. It's a beautiful composition, and for me, one of the best castle configurations I've seen in quite a while. Combine that with some gorgeous textural detailing, and nice angles, and you've got a stunningly beautiful work!
