Faced with imminent attack by enemy forces, Sir John of Lennon tries a new tactic ...
About this creation

"Peace, is that too much to ask for?"




Sir John's archers wait anxiously to see if the gambit works.



The troops of Emperor Moveslike Jagger press forward with a chorus of "This ain't no place for a street fightin' man!" and "I'll never be your beast of burden."





In case the plea for peace fails, Sir John was smart enough to place his staunchest knights (Paul, George, and Ringo, perhaps?) behind the drawbridge in case Jagger's forces breach the gap -- they never will, btw.


The fortress front, sans bridge. If I can get my hands on some blue baseplates, then build would look so much better. Alas, that probably won't happen and I'll use blue construction paper or cloth beneath this at the show. It'll still look good, methinks.


A shot of Jagger's force massing for the attack.


This build is for an upcoming event I have been invited to in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This isn't the only thing that I'm taking, but I was inspired to build this when I picked up the hippie collectible fig about a week or so ago. Considering that nearly all of my gray is taken up in this and another, as yet to be revealed, build, I think I still have enough pieces to make next week's episodes of Glomshire Knights. Yikes, I'd better get on that!

What, you can't throw Pete Best a bone? ;) Awesome build, Dennis, this should garner some gawkers at the show! I hope you have a great time beating back the little window lickers with you cane.~H

Quoting Tim C This is brilliant on a few different levels. First off, the quality of build. Your castle is worthy of being on the set of The Two Towers. Love the bridge and the front of the castle is very imposing. The British Invasion theme is pretty wonderful as well, featuring the ongoing struggle of who the best British band was, (though, this music fan is lamenting the absence of Sir Roger of Daltrey from your MOC), The Beatles, or The Rolling Stones. I have never seen the hippie fig used so grossly out of theme and so appropriate at the same time. What army could trample a man in bellbottoms and holding a flower. All we are saaaaayiiiiing, is Well done.
Oh, I do love the Who as well, but since I don't care all that much for the Stones, I just ran with it. Plus, that moves like Jagger song sort of bugs me.

Nice work, Chief! Some great looking architectural details. Hey, if that hippie can get the Hulk to settle down, I don't see why he can't stop a siege.

The only thing I can imagine right now is the odd sounds that Sir John's body is about to make.

I love this man. I love that hippy too. Great construction all around and clever and groovy idea. The bridge will look great on just some blue paper for a base, you could even paint it a little bit to mimic a river and banks. That could look well cool. Enjoy your show!!! Peace out brother.

A very cool build. And your story is rather funny. A great combination. I really like the name of the attackers leader! Greetz, Elio

Haha, awesome! The castle is great, as is the rockwork and bridge. And of course the names were hilarious, I knew that someone would have to use the Hippy as John Lennon sometime.

And Sir Dave of Mustain breaks into a chorus of "Peace Sells" (...but who's buyin'?) Nice work, Dennis. I say we take up a collection to allow you to finish out the rest of that castle! And by the way, what's Glomshire Knights?

Quoting Tyler Halliwell Very cool. This is a very defensible looking and fairly realistic castle. The minifigs look good and the write-up was great. Have fun in Fort Wayne and don't forget to take a lot of pictures. Lastly, make sure to print off some VIrtuaLUG logos.
Roger that!

Excellent build and idea Dennis! I gotta admit, the hippie is pretty cool. I have one sitting on my gaming center watching me destroy the ozone with my coal burning PS3. :P Good luck at the show!

Dennis, Often builds with a great deal of minifigures can be overwhelming to the viewer, but I think this will work spectacularly at the event because it will be appreciated on different levels by kids and adults. I'm very impressed at the way you've built toward a purpose - art. ~Dave
