Each week I build and publish a new photo of a new and unique modular Lego Castle using the Kingdoms Modular Castle Creator system as seen on Lego Ideas.
About this creation
Kingdoms Modular Castle Creation of the Week

Kingdoms Modular Castle Creation of the Week
This week I have mixed the newer Octagonal modules along with the standard modules to make a larger tower with a fortified gate. There are still quite a few variants of the Octagonal rooms and battlements that I have not yet posted in a castle picture. To the far right you can see a stack of 2 Rock modules connected to the main structure by a bridge. They are the same size as the standard 8x8 room modules and stack just like the rooms. The next stage of this modular castle project is to make a set of Rock modules for a rocky base for a castle with a road up to the drawbridge across a moat. Please support this concept of using small components to quickly build castles: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797

Introducing Octagonal Rooms!!
This week I am introducing a whole new line of room and battlement modules. These octagonal rooms fit the standard of the previously seen castle modules so can be mixed together. This further extends the almost infinite number of different castles you could make by rearranging these small hand held components. This picture shows 2 different octagonal rooms as corners or wall sections between the narrow room and front gate modules. There are 3 different octagonal battlement modules shown creating a contiguous walkway all along the perimeter of the castle wall. You can see pictures of all the other modules and how they go together at https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797. If you like this modular castle system, please vote for it on Lego Ideas.

This week I wanted to demonstrate that you can stack the octagonal rooms just like you can stack the square room modules. On top of any 8 sided room, you can place any other 8 sided module. You can stack the rooms as tall as you want to make a tower or top them off with a roof or a battlement module. You can see the room at the bottom is open on the side for lots of play area where you could build any castle scene you want. There is a single Lego Technic pin hole centered on 4 sides of the octagonal rooms which lines up with the pin hole along the short side of the narrow rooms. This centers the narrow rooms and battlements with the 4 stud wide opening of the octagonal room allowing a contiguous walkway all along the battlements.

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797 This week’s castle features some decorative window modules as well as 4x8 roof modules that hang off the sides of the upper rooms. There is also a corner bottom module right in the front of the castle showing how the bottom modules can be placed on any level. Learn how you too can build castles like this in just a few hours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWNIjgohQlo

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797 This week’s castle is a simple wall that took
Kingdom’s Modular Castle Creation of the Week.
only 5 minutes to build using the interchangeable castle modules from this Lego Ideas set. I had been asked if this system can handle inside corners, so I made sure to show a few. A half, or narrow 4x8 top room (no buttress or plate sticking out) can be placed in the gap where the two rooms with bottom plates touch. The window just to the right of the gate is from such a room while the bottom rooms have the arrow slits. A new feature this week is the additional diagonal play space on the battlements to either side of the main gate. These are made using 8x8 Wedge plates and have the sets of Technic pin holes on both flat sides. They connect to the bottom rooms using the technic pins and are quite sturdy.

This week’s castle took about 10 minutes to make and demonstrates the new narrow or “half” bottom room modules and corners. These new modules are 4x8 and reduce the piece count of the standard 8x8 rooms. They can be placed back to back to make narrow walls that can jut out from the main body of the castle. Pictures of these new modules along with other castles made using this modular castle building system can be found in a recent update to this Lego Ideas project. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797 This week’s castle demonstrates how the room modules can be stacked firmly on top of one another to form a tall tower. The sets of Technic pin holes on the side of each module allow you to hang other modules of the side. This makes it possible to make a tower wider the further up you go. Using this modular castle system, it only took a few hours to make this castle. Check out this video to see examples of smaller castles made from this Lego Ideas set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWNIjgohQlo

This castle was made from small components or modules that can be held in one hand and quickly assembled into any castle you can dream up. This week’s castle shows off the new 8x16 bridge module right at the middle of the span connecting the two small fortresses. This bridge is 48 studs across and made up of 5 bridge modules connecting to each other with a set of Lego Technic pins on either side. Also new, are the straight wood railing modules the can take the place of a battlement module. You can find out more about this modular castle system at https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797

This castle was assembled using small components or modules that can be held in one hand rearranged in endless combinations. This week’s castle demonstrates that the modules designed for the bottom level of a fortress can be stacked on top of each other as well as other modules. By doing this you can create multiple levels of reinforced walls giving the look of several inner keeps. Each with it’s own front gate. Each level can be removed and function as it’s own smaller castle. You can see more pictures of what kinds of castles have been built with this system at https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797

This week I wanted to highlight using the half bridge modules to make the long narrow bridge between the main structure and the central tower. It is made of four 4 x 8 bridge modules connected end to end. They are connected by a single technic pin on the end to the next module to make a bridge 32 studs long with battlements modules placed on top. The bottom of each of the stand alone pillars is made by using the new 4x4 corner modules. You can see pictures of all the modules and how they go together at https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797. If you like this modular castle system, please give it your support.

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/148797 This castle was made using the Kingdoms Modular Castle Creator System. It features 2 new modules, a 8x16 bridge module spanning the distance between the two castle sections and a 4 x 16 balcony creating an even larger balcony place space than before.

This was really the first try at the castle of the week. I did not have enough time to continue it so am trying again with smaller castles that only take a few minutes to make. It takes time to photograph, touch up and post.

This build features a some bottom room modules that have a rock face instead of arrow slits. There is also a main gate on the second level showing that you can stack the bottom or base modules on top of each other.

Amazing! The detail, and the fact that it's modular are so amazing! I hope this becomes a set! Also, I feel sorry that this got knocked off of across MOCpages by some spam :(

I love it! This would be a really fun release for Lego, though I'd worry that as an ideas project... they'd make it more limited and people couldn't get the large quantities of modules they might want! Good luck with getting it approved!
