MOC: temporary wooden castle using Western pieces
Posted 18 November 2012 - 12:25 PM
The King and his knights ride out:
Trouble lurks just around the corner...
The hastily-built courtyard is a hive of activity:
The keep, such as it is, and postern gate:
An old-school minifig on guard:
It's not a full-scale MOC project by any stretch, but it was fun to see what I could do in the space of one saturday evening when I had nothing better to do. There's something about the old Castle themes that I really like, and would love to expand my small collection to build something bigger and more...permanent that I could incorporate into a Town layout or something.
I know of online community projects such as NaNoWriMo and the RPM Challenge, which are organised by amateur writers and songwriters respectively, that involve creativity within a strict time limit. I'm now wondering about a 'speed-build' in which you have to build a MOC in the space of, say, a week or a month. It might be a cool challenge!

I like the bandits hiding, but if there are only three they are dog meat. :)
One suggestion, make the battlement pieces brown, not grey. Looks like rock on wood. :)
Would love to see some workers bringing more wood back as if they were still building.

It's just fun to 'doodle' sometimes, and occasionally I get some ideas that prove to be useful later on even if the thing itself looks rough and unfinished. Your suggestion of a 'still building' angle for instance has given me another idea, because that would actually work in the favour of the 'rushed' appearance that it has...
Hmm. Yeah...I think that could work, and on a bigger scale too...
