This was one of those projects. Only I did not tear it down once. It did it no less than four times to different segments. For the past year I have wanted to build a larger castle such as this, but whenever I started, I found that I did not have enough grey. Heck, when I joined CC over a year ago in October, I had a grand total of 150 2x1s and handful of 2x2s. So, I started saving.
And saving until I had the funds to make several large orders over the past four months. Those 150 2x1s? I now have nearly 800. I know that I’ve gone past the 1000 mark on 2x2s with my most recent order.
The result of all this?
Well, just take a look :)
My own comments on this.
I really like the look of the 2x2s – a few people in chat liked them as well. The main keep turned out larger than expected, and I am pleased with the result. I estimate that there are well over 3000 bricks in this structure. And boy! Is it heavy! The gatehouse proved to be the trickiest. I swear, I must have torn the thing down several times to adjust for the gears. Originally, I wanted to make it so that the portcullis and the drawbridge would open simultaneously, but after several tries, that just did not work very well. In the end, I just got lazy and made it so that one can just raise the portcullis from inside the tower by means of a large gear there. Unrealistic, I know, but by that point, I had had enough. I started this in late September, so this whole thing took awhile to finish. This is also one of my entries for the CCC. I will put up a separate folder for entries tomorrow
Comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism are welcome.
