This is my second castle MOC. I've named the prince after my late grandfather because he lived with me for years, and spent so much of his pension on lego for my christmas and birthday presents!!
About this creation
hi everyone!! these are the pictures of my second castle MOC. i decided against extending my first one as it would have taken too long, and i get impatient with lego sitting there while i wait for pay to come so i can buy off bricklink!!
As you can see, i've just used one large grey baseplate, and made a more compact stronghold.
please excuse the size and quality of the photo's as they were taken on an iphone, but i think they are good enough to get a general idea of the build!! hopefully soon, i shall be able to get my other half to email them to me in the biggest size (she is low on data so she sent over the smalest size to keep her bill low!!)
any comments would be much appreciated!!

great castle chris, nice use of the new LOTR minifigs:)
i havent actually got any LOTR minifigs lol!! i like the look of some of them, especially the Rohan soldiers, but they have flesh coloured hands and heads as apposed to yellow!! i have bought a few LOTR shields though, its those you can see on the black knights, which are from the Kingdoms range!
But thanks for comments so far guys, appreciate it!!
