First castle WIP

Post by Hemish on Wed 20 Oct 2010, 7:26 am

I wanted to build my own castle forever.

I had put some orders in at bricklink and started building yesterday

I realised this is gonna cost me a bit more than I thought so it might take a while to actually finish off.

Anyways did the back wall of the castle and started on the interior buildings.

Here are some pics so far

wow looks like it's goning to be huge!
nice wall design, simple but very effective.
do you plan to add timber (brown) interia supports or is it going to be completely stone built?
looking forward to seeing your progress!

Soon after starting my MOC ship/port i realised that it'll end up being thousands of bricks and may take quite some time to collect the parts
(my little patch of SNOT water is over 500 pcs).
dont give up!!

Cheers guys, its been fun, but its been scary browsing bricklink adding things to the basket and seeing a total jump from $20 to $80
TM I think I will try to put some timber supports in there
I think size wize it will be a bit bigger than the standard castle but will go up a bit more too.
Dunno, see what happens I guess, I really want to finish it, so it will mean no other lego purchases for a while

I'll have to post some better pics of them in the other section of the forum.

Anyways got some more work done on this last night and today



The throne my son Dominik designed



Changed the outer side of this block and added the bars in place



The whole section completed


This is where we are at at the end of tonight.


I have another 3 orders in with bricklink for close to $200 worth of stuff so hopefully that will get me somewhere to finishing this off
Hopefully..................

Did some work in LDD today for a dining hall for the castle, this needs to be inside the walls, roof for it will be flat and will have to make a catapult to go on top of it


Also have another 4 orders for bricks coming from bricklink that were shipped today so hopefully next week can do more building.

Dunno if the tower will ever get built, would be nice but not sure at this stage.
More bricklink orders arrived and here we are after building till 2.30am last night.


Also after designing the dining hall I realised the wall needed to be expanded, its pretty much doubled in length from the first pic

wow Hemish it's really taking shape there and the scale is immense.
brick count must be getting up there too.
it's nice to see a LDD get the real brick treatment I tip my hat sir.

Yeah TM its getting there, my youngest son loves it.
I dont have any idea of the brick count and it should get huge as I still have the front gate to do. Then some details inside the walls.





Might have to order more bricks too, thats gonna make the wife mad legohappy

Update time

Took the tower off the back wall and replaced it with 2 smaller ones in each corner, there will be some tweeking still to go in there.

Blacksmiths area, still need to make the anvil for it and maybe redo those weapon racks not real happy with them

Dining Hall, all it needs now are people


We wanted a wizards hut in the castle, this was originally on that back wall but it didnt look right so it was taken down and will go on the ground inside the castle walls




Where we are at the end of building at the moment.

Thanks guys, Its been fun tweaking bits and pieces as we go.
This will be a castle that will be played with so things need to be either reasonably solid or repaired easy. Those are the two main things I'm keeping in mind while building this thing

Funny how things change as you build stuff
New back wall




Dungeon


Where we are at at the moment

Those "huts" on the left will be mounted like they are on the other side and the centre section will also be built when the parts show up
