I have been wanting to build something in Nocturnus for a while, so the recent story gave a great opertunity to do so. This is another moc based on a piece of Warhammer art, I found it the same time as I found my previous build's concept art. I had planned to actually build this first, but went with the other building as I was short on dark turquoise. However, It was the turquoise color that really attracted me to this build, I love the color and felt it was a nice change from the standard browns, blacks and reds most use for roof work.
An enjoyable build, and one that has really sent me into wanting to build some mocs with a dark/twisted/gothic/dracula type feel, although I am working on a Sleep Hollow moc.
This moc features in the Prelude story to the upcomming challenge 3, which can be found in this thread: Prelude

Just fantastic. This is the sort of build that I show to my friends and say, SEE, this is why I love Lego - look what you can do!

I have to say I love the ilusion of curves used on the upper windows, great perspective trick.
The chimney is cool too, I would like to see some smoke to add realism.
The roof color is odd for Nocturnus yet I enjoy how it enhances the whole building.
The part of the sewer is very clever and the detail of the skelleton on cage adds to the creepy atmosphere.
Great job my Lord.

I am trying to figure out how you did the white walls? such a effect use of tiles especially with the brown.
As kabel said, you seem to always be a step ahead of us. I always look forward to your builds because they are soo nice to look at but also they are a wonderful class of what you can do with lego.

Trying to find the treasures smacks of arrogance to me... I hope we aren't getting in over our heads with this one.

It´s great to see that such an advanced buider like you DC keep improving your builds and techniques!
One question though, when reading through all the comments that you recieve for your mocs there is not that many that gives you tips or critique. How do you improve your building when all you hear is praise? Don´t get me wrong I love your builds and you deserve all the praise!!

Funny, the turqoise roof is what I love most about this beautiful creation - it's so alternative and fresh for a Castle-ish build!

Just kidding, man. Your skills are inspiring. Loved the half timbering of this, the style is really autentic.
Hope you don'ty play guitar as good as you build with Lego or I'll be really jealous...
