My CCC entry, check out the contest over on Classic Castle. But now you should sit back and enjoy a semi-cheesy back story.
About this creation
In the forest of Arden, on the lands of Dunhare, lived a man, rumored to know the ways of magic. It was for this that the local brigands, woodsmen, large rabbits, and other unseemly creatures said to themselves,"let sleeping dragons lie," and so all the days that he dwelt in the greenwood, the man had peace, until the Darkwings came. the Darkwings were a rough band of men, down from the North, with no fear of magic. They stole the man's food, killed his animals, and made a general Nuisance of themselves. However the rumors were true, the man knew of magic, and so he created a golem of flesh, armed it, and charged it to protect him and his home.
many thing may be said of the northern men, but one in their defense is that they went, smiling, to their doom.
And so, long after the man had died, and his immaculately kept house fell into ruin, and the forest claimed it. The horse-headed guard stands, and keeps watch.
I do have more pictures of the insides that I'll add after the contest.
