Blue Crown's Castle siege
The royal city is under attack! All the evil in the LEGO universe is attacking the Blue Crown's castle. Will their high walls protect them? Or will the trolls, orcs, skeletons, uruk-hai and goblins fight their way into the palace?
About this creation













The Crown's Guard has put Darth Vader in stocks and the humiliation of this has rallied the evil forces to one banner. The horde comes crashing against, on and over the city walls, seeking plunder and tender minifig meat. The curtain wall may be breached but the fight is far from over. The king himself commands his cavalry in a sortie. From Westgate, across the river, the king and his mounted knights set out to do some damage in return. They collide head on with enemy cavalry in front of the main gates. They have to mow their through the horde to make it to the battering ram that is driven to the Lesser Gate. If the gate is breached, the city will go down in flames. But between the city and the keep, with its impossibly high walls, runs the river. The fast flowing current is the first defense of the Blue Crown Royal Palace that is built in the shallows of the seaside cliffs. The princesses and their ladies in waiting stand in idle anticipation of the battle that is fought, whereas the city and countryside women have taken up bows to fight with the militia. Even the children take their place in the battle, armed with buckets they are at the ready to quench any starting fire.













It took well over seven months for Eric and me to build the Blue Crown's castle. We have known each other since we were kids, but building this creation together was our first co-build. Or at least, the first co-build ever to reach completion... Eric had been wanting to build a castle since forever he's back into bricking, and was suckered into this massive undertaking. Me, too, wanted to finally build a proper castle; with a keep, a city and a curtain wall, and preferably a bit of country side as well... By teaming up we had a brick supply that would enable even our most darkest desire!













Eric has built the keep, the green fish- and fisherman shop, and I built the curtain wall, the other town houses and shops (tavern, blacksmith, prospector's guild, bakery, pottery, stables and inn, statue, apothecary, tailor, fletcher, butcher, carpenter, stone mason, stocks and the mine) and the siege equipment. After sending over 350 photos back and forth, the whole thing was assembled at Eric's hoping to fit properly. There were some counting mistakes, I'm not pointing fingers, there were some misalignments, but I'll remain calm, and there was a lot of last minute detailing and cursing before it was actually done. The final creation measures 149 cm (187 studs) by 123 cm (152 studs) and stands 84 cm tall. It has more easter eggs, than a dog has flees :)

























I hope you enjoyed the show! The demolition date is scheduled for the 22nd of August, it will then have stood for a whopping 6 weeks! That will make it not only Eric's and my largest creation ever, but also my longest living MOC to date! As usual when I finished a build I cannot wait to sort out the bricks and start something new!



Have fun!

Seriously awesome castle build. Some day I'll get back to that, the best genre of lego! You guys did an amazing job with every part of the layout. Especially love the window design on the tall towers.

Hello, I am really interested in building Lego castles and I found your creation and it is amazing. I love all the angles and details. I would really like to build something like it but I don't know how to get all those pieces. How do you get so many pieces and where do you get them from?

Quoting Michal Hennel It is hard to explain how this castle is marvellous ... I especially like texturing and irregular angles used on towers of the keep ... If I may ask, are there any photos from interior of the castle and houses? 6/5
Hi Michal, Thank you! We did not build interiors... For one because it was easier to not have to be able to reach all the interiors (detachable roofs and the like), but just as well because it'd be down right impossible to capture it on photo in the final layout! The keep was one massive structure, making it modular would have been a serious structural integrity hazard. Another pleasant side effect was that it could keep the houses unrealisticly small - in the LEGO scale so to speak; as in, doing away with stairs to reach another floor, not having a bed for every occupant, etcetera. Downside though, is that all the shops had to recognisable from the outside... It was a tough choice, but it did not take me very long to appreciate! It would have added at least another half year to the construction time...

I know this creation already has a ton of recognition, but the thing is that this creation is so cool! I wanted to pay a lot of attention to the details and fig's, and I have to say... not a flaw or mess up! I love this creation! I really like the extra detail and angles that you put in!

Quoting sir russell how many baseplates did you use?!? its HUGE!
It is not on baseplates :) it is a custom build base of normal plates, raised two bricks high to give depth to the river and sea. If it would, it be close to 28; the outer dimensions are 152x187 studs

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments! Indeed, early negotiations on a follow up co-build have begun! They are as preliminary as they are vague, but who knows, maybe in another year we'll present you with a space station!

About time. This is a well planned diorama from both you. The scale of the build by itself was good enough, but the detail is icing on the cake. It really has an old school castle feel to it. I commend both of you.
