On the eastern bank of the babbling Warron's River sits a Royal Stronghold. This stronghold is a testament to the growing architecture of the Kingdom in it's use of arches and off axis walls to follow the river. On the west bank sits a house on the outside of the village in which a family lives. livestock raised in their fields provide for them.
Just a typical Medieval Home and stronghold.
My largest Layout to date. I have built in castle before, but I really wanted to see what I could do if I went all out, and here's the result. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome.
If you live in the Chicagoland area, you can come out to the Batavia Public Library on January the 28th, 2012. Between 10am and 4pm! I will be displaying along with a few other Brick heads such as Dave and John Xandegar, John Thornton, and Jeff Viens.
Impressive, I really like all the wall details! The whole layout is excellent, and looks great together. The castle is brilliantly built, and I love how studless it is, especially the stairs. The river is good with the curve and light and dark blue under the trans, but a bit more texture would be nice. Still, incredible work!
Some brilliant techniques here - I love the smoke and sheep amongst a whole host of other delights. It's also nice that's it's not too twee, a lot of medieval MOCs have little winding paths and rickety bridges etc when most of our villages / bridges / roads now are how they were hundreds of years ago, substantial and well designed. The only thing I'm not a fan of, and this goes for almost every MOC with a river in it, is that it has no banks. This MOC has a deep base so riverbanks would be possible and the villages would be flooded a lot less often! Anyways, 10/10, awesome work
I may try to be there, however an endlessly busy schedule will probably prevail. This build just looks like you built it. I love the clean edges, sparkling rivers, and simple details that you add. And, of course, no one can beat your sheep.
