"Greetings! Welcome to my Wolfpack hideout, where we base all our outlawish activities. I thought you were a royal lion knight for a second, I would have sent my men onto you! But never fear, as long as you don't tell his royal ponsiness where this here hideout is located, you'll leave in less than two pieces! Let me show you round the place..."
"This is our up-market abode. Lovely location, doncha know! We get nice night-sky views, great summer insulation, and we're in easy walking distance from the stream."
"Looks like one of the lads has brought in a royal knight who wondered a little too far from his property. We rule the land around here, doncha know! And the royals don't bother us too much, they have these strange suspicions that there's dragons and deadly creatures in this here part of the woods. Rather daft, isn't it? I've heard that they think we like to torture captured knights, but all we do is hang them upside down from trees by their pants and tickle them with feathers. being so far away does mean we have to go a fair ways for the occasional treasure cart ambush, though, when the lads get a bit restless. "
"That's our scout you see there, Justinbee Burr. He's a good fellow, keeps his manners, can be a bit hasty though, usually just when there's a female involved. He keeps going on about tall towers and long hair and saving maidens from dragons. He get's really upset when the others call him 'wannabeeburr', no idea what that means. And he's deathly afraid of spiders-"
"Haha, don't think i didn't see you jump just then! No worries, that's just our lookout, Bobbin Apot. He's very strong, has an interesting sense of humor. He may look fierce, but he wouldn't hurt a fly. Unless that fly's a royal kingdom fly, then he would jump out of his tower and try to eat it's nose. That's what he does to royal kingdom knights at least, never seen him do that to a fly... he fell out of a tower when he was six, you see, never quite been the same..."
"Now let me show you around inside..."
"This here is our top sharpshooter, Katnips. She's quite quiet and reserved, but shoot, she's sharp in battle!"
"Geddit? 'shoot'. 'sharp'... You know, cause she's a..., oh never mind"
"...And whats a Wolfpack clan without a stash of stolen Royal Kingdom treasure!?"
"Up here is where we like to hangout. Bobbin likes to watch birds, but Justinbee doesn't come up here much, I think he's afraid of hights... it's not very good for playing blind man's bluff up here though, apparently that's how Bobbin had his accident..."
"...This is also a great spot for fishing, and for doing dice bombs into the pond below...."
"Well, it sounds like Justinbee is having a bit of trouble prying Bobbin off of his captive. I better get down there and give him a hand! Thanks for coming!"
So, I haven't been building much recently, but I felt the urge to build a castle dio, so I built this. I decided to throw in some flexible figs to interestify (put that in a dictionary) it up. I was also experimenting to see if I could blend light and Dk tan with brown on the river banks and try to make it still look legit. Right now I'm working on something different that I haven't tried before, that should be up sometime soon :)
Hehe, Katnips. Very cool castle dio, I like how you used different shades near the riverbank. Also the boards across the 2 ledges give it a nice run down feel. In my opinion, the river bed would look better without the brown, and the tan in the tower looks a bit out of place. I would replace that with a moss color like in the helms deep set. Overall an awesome moc!
Pretty cool! I like how it's not a ridiculously huge dio. ;-) But I guess that would be cool too. I'm planning in building a collab castle (I plan on building it about 100 by 100 studs) with my siblings eventually. Great MOC! -LB Jr.
