This is a rebuild of the set 6062 "Battering Ram" and a free build for Mitgardia. A Mitgardian trader has just reached the safety of some Avalonian walls when some soldiers corrupted by Revolword start attacking:

Very cool! Wall is really well done. There is just enough detail to make it interesting, but not too fancy to be unrealistic. The battering ram is also a really nice size, and looks quite efficient. Great work as usual, Soccerkid! :thumbup:

Great re-build, SK, love the way it opens and shuts!  Nice wall texture as well! :thumbup:

Thanks :sweet: I tried to match the level of detailing on the official set and stay near the size.

I really like the siege weapon. It looks very stable! Also, the inside of the wall feels "right" small cramped defensive structure that one prays that they are not left to hold. :)  Great job here.


Also, not that I mind or anything, but is there a trend going on right now to "re-imagine" old sets? I just noticed there were more than a few of these being posted lately, I think it is cool, but just wondering if there was a contest or something like that?

I really like the playability of this!  I do think the battering ram could have benefited from a second color though.

Thanks, as to the battering ram it does have a second color for the head, other than maybe some tan for skins I'm not sure how I could have added another color :classic:

Yeah, I was thinking some tan, black or a different brown.  Just to break up the (almost!) mono-color of the battering ram.

I love this!  I can imagine hours of fun playing with this castle. It looks nicely detailed, but at the same time solid enough that it would stand up to some serious play as well.  Well done. I almost wish I was a kid again.

I couldn't have said it better myself.  I knew exactly what this was as soon as I saw it.  This was one of the first castle sets I owned.  From the tower to the windows to the battering ram - you have done a superb job!
