This was entry number nine for the Colossal Castle Contest XVI. The Great Wall category was one I liked a lot, and I quickly thought of building some of the fortified city of Carcassonne in France. While my model isn’t an exact replica of any section of the Carcassonne, I did base it mainly off of one of the gate areas, and every tower and wall setup was influenced by sections of the real thing. It is one of my biggest builds ever, weighing in at 35 pounds. Harburg isn't far from the famous fortified city of Crasonne. As such, Karsten has often visited Crasonne on various administrative matters. Today he is accompanied by Eryl, who hasn't seen the city since he was a small child. After a brief meeting with Mikill, lord of Crasonne, the Storrars are given a tour of Crasonne's defenses by a sergeant of the guard. Eryl has a hard time focusing on the details about tower placement, multiple gates, and stone construction that his father discusses with the sergeant. He can't help but feel tiny atop the massive stone walls, and there is plenty of interesting hustle and bustle on the city road. A group of knights are leaving Carcassonne after a tournament in the city, while various guards and peasants go about their business. Someday I'll compete in a tournament, Eryl thinks to himself upon seeing their brightly colored armor and mighty warhorses. One of the Crasonne guards takes advantage of their sergeant being distracted with the guests from Harburg. See plenty more images on Brickbuilt. This was a tedious build, but 'm very pleased with the end result. Hope you all like it
