About this creation
Welcome dear friends, to the Chateau Of Carrith Knorr. It is the summer “cottage” of the King of our lovely kingdom (yes, they pay me to say that). Let’s take a look around and see what kind of trouble we can get in to.


Here we can see the king’s outdoor dining hall.






Although the Chateau has a hall inside, the king and queen prefer the tranquil peace of dinning on the water’s edge. Let’s face it, wouldn’t you?






The Prince also has his own dining area set outside for him to court the ladies of the realm…






Of course he’d rather practice his fighting skills for battling dragons and trolls (that and his parents are like… RIGHT there. Totally cramping his style).






Villager: “Ok, so let me get this straight. You want me to put this apple… on my HEAD… and you’re going to shoot it off with an arrow?”
Archer: “Yeah, it’ll be fun!”
Village: “uh… huh.”






The girls in the water here are trying to talk their friend in to stripping down and jumping in with them. She’s a little modest as you can see… She obviously doesn’t realize she’s in a Phipson moc. Don’t worry, they’ll keep working on her.






Moving up the stairway. The only entrance in to the Chateau. There are always guards stationed on the narrow steps to detour any would be gate crashers. Speaking of gate crashers… is that… Kelso? How’d he get a gig here?






This guy’s camera shy.






These guards have a great view of the bathers (hot chicks) down in the water. The poor guy around the corner pulled the short straw for duty this morning.





Guard: “I’m getting too old for this crap… 6 months till retirement.”






A contingent of soldiers heading out on patrol. It’s not easy keeping this area free of rabble. We’re still not sure how good a job they’re doing though, I mean heck, Kelso got in somehow.






Here are few more shots just for fun with my…



Fourth Wall Commentary:
Well ever since BrickWorld I’ve been on this “castle kick” and have been wanting to try my hand at it.







I’d never really tried it before aside from that one microscale castle I did a while ago and I wanted to see what I could come up with. The end result as you can see isn’t “exactly” a castle, but it’s a step in the right direction.



I wanted to try my hand at a few different ideas and see 1: if I enjoyed doing this genre and 2: If I even COULD.







I’m pretty pleased with the final result (first time I’ve ever done rock work I was actually proud of) and I think I’ll come back to this genre again soon… How’s next week to start on one sound?

Till next time true believers!
~Chris.

Hmmmmpf if you're beginning to fill the castle genre with humour (hey there's no bad pun here lol), other castle guys will be jealous :-) Huge, detailled and funny MOC !

This is a great place, though it may not be as protected as it should be. This would be better if you had made the interior, Oh well its still better than what I can do with my limited stock of pieces. >Eric

Rock work is a pain... it's the having to make it look random, or something. I like the way you've made the stairs look like they've been hewn from the rock, as well. The balconies stuck out (pun in absolutely no way intended) in my mind, too.

nice job man. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when there was no follow-up pic to the modest potential bather. Was hoping you'd reveal that she was wearing a thong underneath or something.

A gorgeous trip into the castle theme. I especially like the waterfall, and the way that it splits into three. =)

A beautiful creation, Chris! I love the waterfall you made. Recently, I have noticed a lot of people who have realized some very interesting water effects by a combination of clear transparent bricks, cheese slopes, etc. With a backround of blue, this seems to look fantastic. Some colored, old-fashioned blue lights might give an extra "depth" and intensity to such builds. I´m also wondering when somebody is going to try to build an "atmospheric" waterfall with 9V or 12V lights behind - that would be the "crème de la crème":)... Anyways, a great build! Best regards, Steffen

It's nice for a first try but over all I can only give it a 3 but on the other hand it will be fun to watch your castle skills improve over time.

Well done! I like the Prince's dining area (pavilion). Rock work looks good! No handrail on the steps is scary, but some of those old structures didn't have any handrails, so that is arbitrary. Foliage & falls nice too. Inspiring work!!!

I like how you mixed S.N.O.T. and regular building and how you used your Leia(is that how you spell it?) minifigs is pretty funny. I like how the guards draw straws for the view! Just one question what exactly is a Chateau?

Well, its no Estuary Stronghold Chris, but then again that took Eggy 5 months to construct. What you have here are some very nice conceptual designs for your up-coming masterpiece castle. Looking forward to seeing it. ~Thoy

Nice work Chris! A great start to your Castle building career. My only slight critique is that I'm not totally keen on the flatness of the water. I'm thinking some SNOT elements worked in with cheese slopes to give it definition would help, especially up by the waterfall. Maybe some lilypads and reeds in the water as well? Other than that, great work!

I think it is just gorgeous. I especially love the waterfall and the technique you use with the white water at the base of the waterfall. The steps coming out of the rock are really really impressive and I am really really jealous of your amount of white bricks... a colour I seriously lack in. That little camera shy guard had me in fits.

Quoting Sebeus I I would like to know where you got the green torso in this picture http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=216689&id=/user_images/10716/12803592414
It's from the Gungan patrol set from a few years back. I can't remember if it was Jar Jar's or Captian Tarples... I think Tarples (probably spelled that wrong).
Quoting James Kontoules Chris, are you planning on bringing this to Brickworld 2011? Looks great! Love the rock work. And Kelso just wants to be accepted for who he is! Or something like that...
Alas, no. This was just "practice" to see if I liked the genre and if I could do it justice. This MOC is already torn down and parted back for the sorting gods. But I think I'm going to return to castle soon. I liked it!
Quoting Mark Kelso By the way, I was wondering...woulds't thou take a gander underneath my frock?
What's good for the goose...
Quoting Zylo ™ And where'd you get those muchrooms? I've never seen that piece before.
They're from Brickforge.
Quoting I Scream Clone Do you use the same grey drapes for your boudoir shots?
Dark red actually.
Quoting luke peterson You also should at least make the actual castle light grey. Other than that I liked it.
But, this one's white.

Nice work, but where are the interior shots? We all know you like to peek into tight places. The exterior is great, all the little events going on were interesting and entertaining.
  July 29, 2010
It's okay. The shore line is too straight and I dont like the transition from rock to castle, you should bump it out one stud and make it so the transition isn't so flat and even. You also should at least make the actual castle light grey. Other than that I liked it.

Hey, nice one, Phippy! I think this genre suits you. Maybe it's from those by-gone days of festivals and LARPers. Some great work with the stairs and supporting rock stucture beneath it. I also like how you created several different building heights, and kept the "arch" theme to the architecture running throughout. By the way, I was wondering...woulds't thou take a gander underneath my frock?

Having just turned my attentions towards castle for a while, this one is really alot of fun to look at. That outdoor area is ispirational, the stairway was cool as, but the chicks in the water was a master touch, very fun looking place... 'It's good to be the King...'
