A Castle siege built for the Lands of Classic Castle.
About this creation
Be sure to check out the VIDEO! and read the story below...
Mark of Falworth and his mighty host laid siege to the equally mighty Lenfel fortress that barred the way to Stonewald.
After five days of constant artillery bombardment, the walls were breached only slightly. Just enough for two men to pass through at a time.
The Loreesi had a severe time pressure, for to delay even for a week would give the armies of Lenfald time to gather in such force that there would be no chance of escape.
So, Mark of Falworth hatched a bold plan.
As there was no time to build a battering ram or siege tower, Mark equipped his War Elephants with short ladders so that they became living armored siege towers! And dismounting his Heavy Knights and re-mounting them on the elephants placed his finest fighters within easy reach of the fifteen-foot high wall.
The infantry charged towards the tiny hole in the wall, which was thickly filled with furious Lenfels. To clear this obstacle they shot Loreesi fire from a portable tube-pump. The surviving Lenfels hastily withdrew into the courtyard. And on top of all this, five Areani Knights suddenly appeared out of nowhere behind the walls and began cutting down the astonished Lenfels still trying to defend the breach.
All these factors combined led to the remarkably speedy overthrow of a castle that was once deemed impenetrable.
I don't think I've ever seen an elephant built around that way in lego... Very creative and original, in my opinion. The castle walls are pretty well built too; I like how you've incorporated the breakages into their cores.
