... and here is a remake of a set, that is eligible for the CCCX. Last time i chose a set, that was beloved by many Afols. This time i tried to make something decent out of a bit more flawed set. Thus i chose the more obscure 6097 Night Lord's Castle

Many think that the original headgear of the batlord is a bit silly. I share their thought, so i chose Vladeks helmet, which slightly resembles a bat or a bat-cowl yet looks more like a real helmet and not a part of a silly costume.

I think a giant bat fits much into the fright knight theme than a black dragon. What do you think?

And here is a image of the original set, released 1997 (..for those who do not remember this rather obscure set)

Interesting Remake!
I really like the sorcery chamber!
How did you make the giant bat-thing? I cant really tell from the pic.... :sceptic:
Have you seen him? Probably not, he's a NINJA.
