About this creation
A gate in the same scale as my Corner Tower.



Enlarge image
   One of my largest MOC's. So far.



Enlarge image
   I wish I had the bricks to have this and my corner tower made at the same time, but unfortunately the corner tower was destroyed in order to make this.



Enlarge image
   While I'm on the theme of wishes I might as well wish that I could have virtually unlimited bricks and space to make 4 corner towers, several more wall sections, and a medieval town to go inside.



Enlarge image
   One thing I am happy with about this model is the windows. I like their simplicity.



Enlarge image
   Undoubtly my favourite shot of it.



Enlarge image
   One of the most challenging pieces of planning on this was the crenellation spacing. If you lay it out wrong you end up with them uneven, or half of one at each end, or in extremely severe cases, half a crenellation extra.



Enlarge image
   Bricklink sellers: 2x2x3 Grey Slopes are far too expensive.



Enlarge image
   Yeah, yeah, I know, every picture looks the same.



Enlarge image
   What more can I say? My camera card went insane-o while taking pics, so I lost a lot of them, retook them, and in the process managed to get extras of some shots and omit others.



Enlarge image
   While some may disagree, I am fairly happy with the "look" this has. Straight edges, clean surfaces, but some cleanly detailed areas.



Enlarge image
   Someone wanna tell me why everyone seems to like my landscaping?



Enlarge image
   PaB with old grey is always a good thing. Always.



Enlarge image
   If you're really smart, you might wonder how the figures plan to get inside the castle.



Enlarge image
   I decided to forgo a undead attack th is time and instead add a "slice of medieval life"



Enlarge image
   The gate was the one disappointment of the MOC for me. I was hoping to make a mechanized gate using gears and cool stuff, and I got a partially working one, but in the end I got annoyed with it and used a simple pin system. Much like you'd find in an official set.



Enlarge image
   Yes, the gate comes down by itself. Guess what?! Gravity works!



Enlarge image
   Classic Black Falcons arrest another KK2 imposter!



Enlarge image
   "The Lone Falcon"...oops! Sorry Nathan!

;-)



Enlarge image
   KK2 figures do have a use despite all claims. Bonus points if you can spot the second KK2 figure in this picture.



Enlarge image
   I'll use this space to say thanks to all those great people out there who inspired me to make this. Mainly Classic-Castle.Com



Enlarge image
   Don't you wish you were that Black Falcon?



Enlarge image
   The Princess Leia torso is underused. Come to think of it, so is the Slave Leia figure...



Enlarge image
   Who says even castle figures can't have some down-time?



Enlarge image
   New shift!



Enlarge image
   This shot is definately for the girls out there.



Enlarge image
   Anyone else ever noticed that that brown often photographs in a decidedly distasteful colour?



Enlarge image
   No new colour scheme pieces were used in the creation of this model.

This is awesome and I found the second KK2 character. He's one of the shadow guys.

WOW! That is the best castle MOC I've seen in a long while. It's refreshing to come back and browse the older stuff.

Very Nice I like the detail. The only problem I have with it is that the towers are to skinny to hold the top if you make it a little bigger around it will almost perfect!

Awesome! Fantastic architecture and 100% old greys! KK2 figs getting arrested! Now just show him being burned at the stake! Better yet, show the purple knight getting burned at the stake! Yeah!
