They bang impatiently at the front door while the hosts look down to see who it is...

The hosts prepare to entertain the guests with fireworks...

Hehe, nice find! But I think that there should be more "guests" ;)

Nice find.
Though it seems that all xbow soldiers are the same which also goes for the undead guests :|  that could have been done better.

How would you have done it, Lord KimT?  Are you saying you'd prefer greater diversity in the mini-figures face and/or torsos?  The skeletons are bit harder to achieve that with given there's only 3 different kind of skeleton faces but there are ways.  Oh yes, there are ways!

And new colors now that we have the graveyard duel  *satis* . nice building, but I find it a little bit empty (meaning lack of small details). It's still really impressive and massive.

Catapults, traitors who are hanging from the top of the fortress, wrenches for the guy to have some kind of entertainement, some flags, and the other usual stuff you'll find in those scenes  :-D

I'd have used different figs for the tower guard - for example one could have 5 or 6 units of xbow men. Each consisting of a sergeant (one fig) a 6 xbow men. The there'd be 5 or 6 different kind of helmets, torsos and so on. As for the undeads - I might have added the new skeletons - and different armors - breastplates, helmets and even shields. (Yes I know it's difficult setting skeletons up using different weapons due to the way their arms are attached). But at least they could have used swords, spears, pikes, axes and so on. That would have added some diversity to the scenery. Hey even a dragon could have been added :oD

Once I made a MOC and to break the monotomy of the white I added those 3 branched green leaf things.  It worked quite well.

It's probably better than I could have made, but it is a little plain, esp. the left side.

Nice find... but Ibelieve it was originally billed as a castle! I like the small vessel the skeletons are arriving in.

I think it works quite well as a pirate MOC myself, however!  The skeletons are still pirates because the defintion of pirate is "Someone who raids or attacks from sea which is exactly what they are doing.  Unless of course the castle is on an island in the middle of a lake or something but that hasn't been established so its subject to interpretation  :D
