Western castle for dark knights, with soldiers, witch, dark wizard, skeletons, ghosts, king and queen.
About this creation
The front, resembling a face. As you go through the gate - a giant mouth -, it's as if you're being eaten.
The upper levels. From the main hall, a ladder leads to the first floor (where the soldiers are in the image). From there, another ladder leads to the towers/lab.
The two towers, housing the skeleton master (silver) and the dark wizard.
The first floor. Soldiers occupy that space, that also provides strong military advantage above the fields and behind walls.
The archers post. Skeleton sentinel archers keep an eye over the surroundings.
The castle opens in half to reach the interior. Below the towers, a wall opens to reveal the witch lab. There’s a hidden treasure under the shortest tower.
Both walls around the gate are secret passages. Below the first floor is the sanctuary, protected by ghosts. There’s a small wall in the sanctuary that falls down, leading outside the castle.
Most of what you see in silver was hand-painted by me and some friends, many years ago, when the «Night Lord» and the «Witch» LEGO collections came out.
This is about to be dismantled soon because I need parts for a Mega Medieval City I’m creating, so I kind of wanted to make sure we could always look at it again, since it has been assembled for so many years.
A very special thanks to Zé Pedro, who entrusted me with most of the parts used in this MOC to make the most out of it.
Also, this has been used in another MOC / photo session that is yet to be published, due to lack of time.
