Winterfell
A play set of Winterfell Castle from George RR Martin's fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire.
About this creation
Where to start...

First of all, this is a play set, not a model. That is, it is designed to have access to all parts, interior and exterior.

Second of all, it is based (loosely) on a fictional castle from George RR Martin's fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. If you haven't read it, go pick up a copy of the first book, A Game of Thrones. You too will be hooked and creating your own Lego play sets of Martin's world in no time.

I did not began with the intention of making Winterfell. I used David MacCaully's amazing book, Castle, for the design, but it soon turned into Winterfell after a few short months.

The outer curtain is on 32x32 baseplates and each baseplate has its own theme: (clockwise from the Main Gate house) The Main Gatehouse, alehouse, kennels, Hunter's Gate, rear of the Godswood, The Heart Tree, front of the Godswood, blacksmith, stables, target range.

The inner curtain is on baseplates of varying size. Each of these buildings remove easily to reveal interiors. Clockwise from the Main Gatehouse: the well; glass gardens and kitchens; the Great Keep, including great hall down stairs and lords' and ladys' chambers upstairs; Bell Tower; entrance to the crypts; armory; and Library Tower.

I hope you enjoy viewing as much as I did designing and creating.

I'm speechless... I'm currently on Book 4 which is a Feast for Crows I think... Winterfells been razed to the ground and the Starks are no more.. I couldn't believe the Red Wedding, the Freys and Boltons should be given the chop.

I like it, and if this playset would be in stores, I definitely would buy it! Personaly I think the statues in crypt would need beard or two, and may be even one helmet.

LOVE IT! I can picture a minifig Bran climbing near the roof line and later hiding in the crypt... Amazing. So sad what happens to the characters who "live" there, though.

Awesome MOC! The yellow glass looks a little odd, but I don't really care. David MaCaully rules! I've a friend who holds George RR Martin's books in high esteem, maybe this will finally get me to read the series...

Excellent!! Much work went into this! The attention to detail is amazing! It makes me want to read these books. The macro photos are pieces of art too! My only hangup is that it's not possible to see all of the cool features in one photo. But that's not a bad thing...
