Very cool!  I love all the damaged castle pieces.. the cracks in the wall, pieces crumbling off, etc.  The catapults and tower on fire are also really amazing looking, and the details on everything add a ton to the diorama (like the orc on fire jumping off the tower!).  The positionig of all the minifigures also adds a lot to the feel of the diorama with all the castle defenders streaming out and being surrounded by orcs.

Again, very nice job!  Big kudos!

This is great!  The massive scale lends to the realism,a nd of course the damage to the walls as well!

Oh, my, god. Really impressive!!

I love how you capture the battle's emphasis, amazing. The charge of infantry ... 'CHAARGE!'

I think the ONLY thing I would change is make the grass cut off closer to the castle.  Maybe 1/3 as long as you currently have it, or even half?  I say this because the scene would look a lot more filled then, and not have so much empty space in the back.  It would feel a little more like an epic battle that way.  Not that it doesn't already feel extremely epic!

Wow, those cracks on the wall really needs to get repaired! The assault tower are stunning espicially the one in flame. Those large dioaroma always impress me and let me without voice. By the way, your defending army with silver helmets is beautiful!

This is brilliant.  Loads of things to admire but I think the damage to the walls is particularly well executed.

Hate to do the regulator thing on a good MOC, but keep the pictures to 800 x 600 pixels, the first picture is outside those limits.

Wow, great MOC! For some reason I thought of the siege of Minas Tirith when I first saw this.

Excellent job! I really like how you built the damaged wall. The siege engines are great as well. :thumbup:

This is a wonderful build. I love the authentic look of the walls with the damage and cracks which are fantasticly done. The long loopholes are great, as the rest of the  diorama with the siegeengines as well.
Really well done!

This is very impressive work. I love the scale of it and the feel that it gives.

Impressive scale. I really like the cracks in the wall. That was very cleverly designed and it really looks like cracks! The crumbling wall is brilliant also.

Keep up the good work!
