majestic, grandiose! curiously, I expected to find a lot of yellow inyour castle 'section' there is none...you keep it exclusively for the pirate girl, by curiosity, and perhaps for challenge, I d like to see you try a balance between both, in a future piece.

Apart from the creation itself (which I love), the atmosphere here is perfect. The right amount of light, shadows and haze. And no artificial lense flares, thank tFSM.

Such an impressive Hall ! Great fireplace and wooden paneling. The scale true to life gives it such a realistic appeal, and your personalised assembly of mini figures completes the picture so nicely !>.....well done

This looks like a scene in a movie. All the elements are properly set/positioned. The atmosphere is tops!

That guard keeping guard over the 'Checked weapons' has that "Look what I could take off with..." gleam in his eye, methinkst. Best watch for that one. Haha, this is great work again, good luck! -Ultra

Coat of Arms Check! Sorry, couldn't resist the opportunity for a bad pun. Excellent mood and color. I really want to explore the entire castle and grounds. I especially like the wall buttressing and of course the fireplace. Good Luck!

Stunning! I can see «The Greydell Inn» style here, and that's surely a plus (for me it's your masterpiece) Good luck!

A great Great Hall. I like the big wooden door in the corner, the patterning of the floor and the clever use of that chunk of spaceship to make the top of the fire place.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Another very atmospheric and highly detailed moc. The stonework and floor are fantastic. I love the picture of them checking their weapons at the door. Good luck :D
Hehe, yeh I figured I'd show something a little different going on with that one, cheers buddy :)

Quoting Mark Kelso BEAUTIFUL sense of space in this one, Parrington! So often structural interiors can feel cramped, or out of proportion with the figs, but to me, this one's right on the money! Some nice color placement and textural work in the surroundings, too. All in all, just an excellent MOC. Well done!
Thanks heaps Mark, yes I was worried at one stage too much empty space wouldn't look good but then I thought, it's a big castle hall, there should be space!

Quoting Stuart Delahay Nice job mate, the addition of those grey masonry bricks around the fire place add loads of nice texture to the walls and I love the tables too. Well done and good luck!

Quoting David Alexander Smith Ah sweet Dragon Lance - the big question do you pronounce Raistlin as in waste bin? I was big on DnD too many moons ago.
Absolutely! Raistlin is exactly pronounced that way, I had so many arguments with people who pronounced the a as in cat. Argghhhh! Duh, Raisin - Raistlin - pretty simple? And sounds way better...

Quoting Mike Johnson Oh great, you're in this too. Now I know I'm f*@&#d and that's if I even make it past Round 1! On the lighter side you always do such a wonderful job with scenes like these so at least someone will be representing Team GAIA in R2. Good luck my friend. May the schwartz be with you!
Hehe, cheers buddy, and mate there's 64 spots up for grabs! Though the competition is tough and I have really taken a chance putting myself up to beaten so early, but I stand by my Moc. Hahaha, hope to see you in rnd 2!

Quoting Giovanni & Lennaert Seynhaeve wow, that fireplace is an instant classic, but I love what you did with the floor too. You don't see SNOT floors too often in castlebuilds! Good luck with the judges, mate!
Thanx Gio, and yes, I admit I was tempted to go mental with that floor but then remembered the lighting I was planning and thought better of it. Still nice though :)

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Sweet dio mate! It was Medieval August on the history channel last month and I've been watching heaps of docos on that era... kinda becoming a little bit obsessed actually... This makes me feel like I've just gone back in time. Its not just the build but the atmosphere. I love the hazy photos. I don't know if you planned it or if the sun was just in the way of the camera but it gives it such a smoky, dusty haze that somehow makes it feel real to me. Love the fireplace too.
:) Exactly what I was going for that haze you mention. It just makes you feel like you are looking at a set rather than a model IMO. You know I always hesitate when shooting this way thinking, what if no-one really likes it? SO glad you do. I have done it previously through out my 'Castle' folder and it's just a trick of the lighting. Cheers Leda.

Quoting Ru Corder Wow, excellent! I really like the floor, it's an unusual color for castle, but it looks awesome.
Cheers Ru, sure is, I just was inspired by the heavy use of red and white the current TLG Castle builds are using in conjunction with wanting to do a big dining hall scene and so went about as such. I cant imagine how long that floor would have taken with little tiles!

Quoting StoveTop Creator Oh wow, starting the MO with a build in what I think is your area of expertise! I love that fireplace and I spied that throne that we only get a teasingly peek at! Do hope that means that in the near future we may get a better view of it and everything in a Magnificent Tale of Seven! Very best of luck! :)
Thanks ST, it seems this fantasy era alliance is a popular one! I do enjoy ye olde style stuff more than I let on I suppose, I was a fanatical DnD player back in the day and have read like every Dragon Lance novel ever, hahaha... Until the next time...

Hehe, yup, I just spent the entire last two days building. I was going to shoot it tomorrow during the day, but I just couldn't help myself. In any event, I wanted to get that dingy effect and so night time shooting is actually better for it. Cheers Ian :)
