About this creation
This is my first real castle MOC, so enjoy!



Enlarge image
   To start off we have a trio of knights approaching the tower.



Enlarge image
   So here you have a few defendants up on the top battlements watching for enemies. Sorta like in LOTR all the dudes watching from Minas Tirith. Only this isn't a movie remake. Accuracy to the book is important!! Okay, so I'll be quiet, leave my opinions on the LOTR movies to myself and just get on with this.



Enlarge image
   So the bright ones out there might be wondering if there's more to this than meets the eye.
Note pink flowers - Thanks to a wonderful friend of mine for sending them too me since I didn't have any. You know who you are.



Enlarge image
   Think about it. Why would I build it up on several layers of bricks for no reason?



Enlarge image
   So look at the window. It deserves attention. It was a royal pain in the...well nevermind the specifics.



Enlarge image
   That one design took me 2+ hours easily to get built and to work in the wall. Not to mention the help of several people from C-C chat. Thanks guys!



Enlarge image
   Yeah, laugh about it's likeness to a face with a runny nose. Go ahead. Laugh. Just remember that small things entertain small minds.



Enlarge image
   So if you're actually looking at all these pics you might have noticed the hinges in there. Now why would I put hinges in for no apparent reason? Come on. You have a brain, so use it.



Enlarge image
   Yeah, so you're probably getting bored with a bunch of similar pics. Go cry about it if you want. If you're too manly for that, just continue to scroll down.



Enlarge image
   See, this knight is coming out to check on the rest of the defenders out here.



Enlarge image
   Don't worry, they'll all be loyal and stay in line after they say what happened to the last person who disobeyed. Suffice it to say that it is a long drop down the wall.



Enlarge image
   So if this was a space MOC I'd have a big yellow and black warning strip because of the sudden stairs. But it isn't. So there's no warning. Understand?



Enlarge image
   Yeah, I know this is getting boring, just scroll down more. It's easy. Especially if you have one of those cool rollermouse things.



Enlarge image
   So here it is if you either were too lazy to read all the above captions, or you didn't get my hinting. It opens.



Enlarge image
   Just check out the playability! Yeah, now you're wondering about if there's an interior. Would I really not do a interior? Honestly. Well okay, maybe I would skip it. But not in this case. Just scroll down already.



Enlarge image
   So here's the basement. So you ask how do they get up to the main level? Watch and learn.



Enlarge image
   Note that not every space is filled. There's two possible explainations. Either some of them are used by the castle people, or I just don't have much castle LEGO.



Enlarge image
   So here's a ladder to get up to the main level.



Enlarge image
   Once again, if this was a space MOC I'd have a big warning sign of the sudden hole in the floor. But it isn't, so I don't, and I just hope if you aren't paying attention and fall down it that you have good life insurance.



Enlarge image
   So check out the Black Falcon style tile floor.



Enlarge image
   Here's the other side featuring the doors.



Enlarge image
   As you can see, everything splits down the middle with a pin to hold it togeter. There's another at the very bottom of the landscaping too.



Enlarge image
   So, as you probably noticed before, there's a bookshelf here for good reading during times of peace in the kingdom. Needless to say, they haven't had a chance to read any of them yet.



Enlarge image
   So here you can see how everything matches up inside. It actually closes with no problems, and all the staircases fit together and stuff. Brilliant designing eh? Yeah, okay, so it isn't really super-brilliant. But it's my first real castle MOC, and I had no clue what I was doing with it. What are you going to do? Throw rotten veggies at me?



Enlarge image
   In conclusion, here's the entire interior for you, showing the lack of defenders for the castle. Mainly because I just don't have any more Black Falcon figs. Of course if you wish to donate you can just leave a review...

It is very good very detailed in side but it needs more arrow slits on the side so your knights can fire arrows out of them and you can see inside without opening it all the way! Overall Good Job!

I love it. Those basement stairs are really clever. I'd give you some BF minifigs but I need them. Why don't you just get the templates from Classic castle and get rid of a bunch of useless men? Thats what I did.
