Two King's Castles + parts from the Troll's Mountian Fortress + Outpost Attack + about $50 of extra pieces from pick-a-brick make up the modified castle, which now has five levels. Every level and tower is accessible by either ladders or stairs.
About this creation

The gates of the outpost are open and we prepare to enter the kingdom.



As we pass through the gate, we look right...



Then left...



A view of the kingdom from one of the towers of the outpost.



From the castle, left turret.



From the castle, right turret.



Overall veiw.



Aerial photo (from our 16th century helicopter) :-)



Walking to the castle. Notice the chains from the drawbridge lead directly into the tower. We replaced the arms that raise/lower the drawbridge with a wind-up system.



There is always a lot of foot traffic coming and going to and from the castle.



When compared with the original Lego Kingdoms King's castle, ours is four studs wider, ten studs longer, and the added height is quite obvious. The drawbridge has been lengthened, and the tall tower in the center is five stories high. The second level of this tower is the king's treasure room. The third level is the royal throne room with a very high ceiling. It actually takes up two levels. The top room of the tower is the wizard's laboratory.



Crossing the drawbridge.



Looking down at the main gate from one of the castle walls. The main gate tower has undergone extensive renovations.



As we pass under the portcullis, we see the base of the tall tower right in front of us. Notice that the base was taken from the Outpost Attack. The stairs off to the left that lead up to the second level are still in their original location.



Heading up those stairs...



On the second level, the door (that you almost see) to the right leads to the king's treasure room. The stairs in front of you lead up to the third level where the royal throne room is located.



Another view of the stairs to the third level.



The throne room. The king is always drinking in hopes that he will forget how short he looks compared to his queen when they are sitting. How embarrassing!



Behind the ninja and the princess, we see the ladder that leads up to the fourth level. The king is trying to hire the ninja for an assasination attempt on one of his enemies. The princess thinks he is hot, but only because she knows her father wouldn't approve. Teenagers! Sheesh!



Another view of the main gate tower and ladder that leads to the top of it.



Once we climb the ladder to the fourth level, we have access to both rear towers. The stairs lead to the fifth level, the wizard's laboratory.



The wizards does NOT like to be disturbed while he is working and he always carries a sword. We should probably leave him alone.



We remove the access wall to the dungeon in the bottom level and we see what happened to the last guy that continued to disturb the wizard. He has been chained here (notice the shackle on his right arm) for a very long time. He looks hungry, huh? The dungeon has been expanded a bit. This is not to make our "guests" more comfortable. This is to allow us to have room for more "guests."



We have added an access wall to the second level as well in order to provide my son with more "playability." This was necessary now that the second level has a ceiling overhead. The door you see leads to the king's treasure room.

This updated Castle looks absolutely amazing and well worth the time and money that you have spent on it, you should work for Lego with your creative talents. Well done!!!

Quoting Pedro Resendes OMG this just keeps getting better and better... Keep up the great work!
Thanks! After checking out your kingdom, we have decided that we really need to add a wall surrounding our entire village. Time for some more bricklink purchases. We just need a bigger display table! More to come this summer. We have some more exciting ideas that we are going to implement with the castle itself. It will continue to grow! :-)

Thanks, Zane. I have actually already made some major changes to it again since posting these pics. The castle is still the same, but we changed the castle grounds quite a bit. Added four more base plates and really expanded to get some more room. Everything just seemed a bit too crowded. Now, we have quite a bit of extra room, so it's time to buy the Kingdom Mill Village Raid and add it to the mix.
Quoting Pippo Zane Mate... it's getting better and better! I see it growing! Nicely done! I love the river a lot! Keep on developing, I'm curious to see what is coming out!
