Really amazing!
The damaged walls and siege engines are truly excellent.
Like the great action with  soldiers even falling of the wall.

Very impressive size, and full of detail, which is no mean feat. And I agree the cracks in the wall are superb. These are the kinds of MoCs i love, showing the big picture, but you can find plenty details when you look closely. The siege engines are also neat.

Fantastic work. I too, like so many others, especially love the cracks in the walls and other battle damage. Amazing details. I also like how many chrome helmets you have managed to amass, they make the brave defenders look extra majestic.

Roughly how many minifigures for each side did you use for this diorama?  Both attackers and defenders?  It looks like well over 200 combined.  I ask because I would like to do something similar using the LotR minifigures.

Like I said before, you have a huge army there but the attackers look a little sparse in the back just due to all the empty grass plates you have there.  If you cut off that back section it would make the field look so much fuller with battle and wouldn't really take anything away from the diorama.

That's a really sweet piece of work, markus1984. :thumbup:

How heavy is that siege tower? If it's on a non-studded surface does it roll well, or is there too much friction because of the weight?

Awesome! Good job - as many have noted, the battle damage to the walls is one of the finest details, among too many to name!

A question: I'd say the silver knights appear to be losing, is this the case?

Really, thanks for showing this to us, it's an inspiration, and kudos for the details, that's what make this "alive":)
Kinda make me think this is quite the same as the weathring technics used in figurines paints.

approximately 300 minifigs.
At first the Diorama was a bit smaller but I wanted the catapults not provide as close to the castle!

@Blondie-Wan
weight I can not say exactly but it runs perfectly :classic:

@Albus
the good always win :wink:

This is so massive and even detailed at the same time :wub:
I like how you did the crumbling walls, the burning (actually all) siege tower(s), the trebuchets and the fig posing :thumbup: :cry_happy:

It needs more blood!! haha, it is very good, the craks in the wall are excellent and you really create a strong sense of futility as they charge out to face the horde. Awesome :dsweet:
