A lovely castle situared high in the mounainous regions of Kaliphlin.  This originally started off as a part of my Botanical Gardens University project, but then I found it turned out too big. . .

A few trees off to the left, and a drawbridge with a statue on either side.  Unfortunatly, I don't have two dark blue hands, just one (and I'm wondering how that happened).
And the Castle all by itself:

Neat little micro build, you seem to have a knack for those. The trees and statues are nice details  :thumbup:

Nice microbuild! However I would make a smoother transition (a windy road or something) at the end of the drawbridge where it currently just drops.

Good job; nice little castle. These micro builds are so cool; I've just got to start building more of them. And glad to see someone found a use for those statues!

Thanks everyone!  (As you may have noticed, I really enjoy micro building!)  A winding path is certainly a good idea, although exactly how I could do a winding path on such a small scale I'm not sure!  :laugh:

Brilliant build,

I'm really loving those trees and the drawbridge  :thumbup:

Sweet build Kai! You really are getting the hang of this microscale stuff, very cool. :thumbup: If i may ask a question though - i may be incredibly dense and missing something, but how is the horizontal bar above the entrance arch attached?

No, you're not missing something, it's certainly not obvious - I store my LEGO in peanut butter jars (mostly), so I just scraped some of the sticky glue off one and used that.  So, technically speaking, you really couldn't attach it with just LEGOs. . .  :wink:
