Ladies and gentlemen, it's not very often when I participate in different contests, but I really couldn't miss this one. )  :wub:
I present you my Castle-SW MOC: "Dwarven Octuptarra and Spider droids". I hope you'll like them! )  :sweet:

Name: Dwarven Octuptarra and Spider droids.
Theme: Castle (only castle parts were used, BTW)
Number of bricks: 200 (exactly.  :classic: )

When war comes to the snowy land of dwarves, it's not the shields and axes that can win the fight. The great dwarven engineer Burorin is always there with a new war vehicle! The troll and even skeleton armies run away in panic upon seeing the giant Octuptatta droid. It moves swowly across the battlefield crushing everything on its path. But what's that? It's the famous "Beerkeg" Spider droid! Much smaller but faster than Octuptarra these droids can even bring down armored Giant Trolls. So, enemies of the dwarves, beware! )  :sweet:

Great entries The Penguin  :thumbup: . My only suggestion is that maybe you can add a little more detail to the Octoputurra model mainly in the middle section of the legs and in the head. Mu suggestion is that you can add some "weapons" in the legs and somde detailed "rings" around the head but you can still conserve the overall actual shape cuase it is great designed  :thumbup: .

Wow!! :oh:
Before I start, I have to point out the fact that the dwarves have always been my favorite species.
Both of your models look really nice. I prefer the smaller one, but both are incredible.
They definetly look SWish
Plus, after the battle, the dwarves can tap the Beerkeg walker for a nice cold one. :laugh:

When people are force to look at a glass of water that is exactly half-full, some will say
that is is half-full and some say it is half-empty.
However, the world is controlled by the people who say
"Hey! My glass had more in it. And it was a different glass! Who's pinching my beer?!?!"  
Any one who could create Doctor Who, Monty Python, and is also the home of Terry Pratchett must be cool.

Great work, Penguin! :thumbup:

You've managed to combine both themes perfectly. Not that I know a lot about the Dwarves theme, but I think you've managed to keep that theme clear while still keeping the designs Star Wars-related.

That must have been a very skilled dwarf to be able to create war droids.  :tongue:

I was just toying with barrels when that idea came to me, which later grew into decision to make the droids and participate in the contest. )  :classic:

Since I used only Castle parts (at least for Octuptarra), I guess it's pure Castle in that way. )
As for Burorin, indeed, he is a skilled dwarf. You can see some of his previous creations here:

Wow, you captured the style of Castle and Star Wars!  You just gave me an idea...
"Fly for the Empire"
"Build it Right, Make it Bite"

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

Thanks a lot! ) Well, I tried to preserve the confederate color scheme. And it was not that hard with Castle, since it's rich in dark blue, brown and gray. )  :sweet:  :thumbup:

Wow! That is really cool! I really like the little spider droid. I had no idea that the large three-legged spider droids were called octuptarra until now. Great idea and great job on an awesmoe MOC!
