Castle Dalradae
At long last, My castle is finished! I put a ton of time into this, so please enjoy!
About this creation
Castle Dalradae is the capitol of the realm. The King resides behind it's massive walls and rules the kindom from it's bowels.




A couple shots of the whole build.







Some pics of the outside.





I love how the river turned out.




Goats!



Of course Oswald is roaming the build.






A small settlement to supply the castle with farm products.








The full interior!




The East wing.




The kitchen.




A storage room of sorts. Never let an asian in your pantry(no offense if your asian.)






The ballroom.





The West wing.




The feasting hall.







A dungeon cell.




The chamber of a fair (and blurry) maiden.




The room of wizzardy things.



Now some random shots.






















I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you to those of you who looked at the WIPs!
I may post more pictures later, maybe a seige?


So please rate and comment!

Very cool castle! We're considering building one in the future. 5/5
Quoting Ru Corder Very nice! I've been wanting to try stop motion myself for some time, any tips?

Quoting Robin Longstride Amazing job! This is one of the best castles I have seen on the pages! I plan on making a castle sometime in the near future and I was wondering if I could use a few of the techniques that you used here? I will give you credit of course. Oh and I love the design for the goats and the fence!
Thank you! And have at it with techniques!

Thank you! As I had told someone before, the cooks are there more to show that it is a kitchen. When people(or at least I) think of a kitchen, I think of cooks.

I liked EVERYTHING in the castle. Good job. Nevertheless, I'd like to share my opinions and suggestions: 1) My favorite parts were the ballroom and the dining room. As I said on Flickr, the wavey-brown-pieces were an excellent idea. 2) Next time you make an order on Bricklink, get a bit of dark brown tiles, and maybe not-reddish brown as well to make the floors more interesting. 3) Try to add more 1x1 round and square pieces to improve the road's texture. (like Leda's recent MOC, I can give you a link) 4) Usually (in my opinion) medieval houses can be a distraction when placed near castles, unless they have extraordinary architecture (like Medieval Market Village). If you want to make two houses, make a good, interesting one with interesting techniques and architecture, and another house which will be just a building with a purpose (mill, smithy, chapel... Classic-Castle.com has a lot of ideas). 5) Try to make more clusters of plants instead of scattering them unequally. Also, don't use the bulky City trees. They look really odd when combined with brick-built trees. 6) I can see that you've put a lot of effort into it. You built a great castle, I can't wait to see your next castle. PS: try to "invent" more new techniques, build your own brick-built animals and look at medieval contraptions to make them in real life. It's much more interesting, and also satisfying to the builder.

I didn't notice the racial diversity before. Nice detail. If you want to emphasize that your fantasy realm has no racial issues, put more trolls, ogres and orcs between the humans, and maybe even give them a certain profession (orc blacksmith or a troll chef). Anyway, I enjoy reviewing MOCs (especially good ones), so I'm the one who should be thanking you.
Ru Corder
AA (Noname)
  July 20, 2011
Congratulations! Anyway, if you need some trolls the battle pack would be the best set for it. It's pretty expensive on Bricklink (about 35$), so I suggest trying eBay or buying individual troll heads and hands on Bricklink (just them, to reduce the price), troll heads are pretty cheap. Also, a troll (the huge one) is a must-buy component of a Castle collection. I have to get myself one of these.
