The castle is very plain, but I like the archway.

Why does everyone say the same thing that two people already said? Yes we know its plain. Two people confirmed that already...

Why are you telling us that two people already said it's plain? The person has his own opinion, y'know. Wink

Last time I checked castles usually have plain walls. Wink

Maybe something like this would look good though. Smile

I kind of think it's pointless to say "I think it's plain" even though two people already said that.

The castle is, as everyone said, plain Razz You still have some very nice techniques on there, the arrow slits and windows, and the minifigures are good too.

You were telling people not to post things that had already been said, then you go and say it twice.

This is a nice castle MOC, even though I never build castle. But shouldn't crusaders be dressed in white?

I think you are assuming that all Crusaders are a member of the Knights Teutonic or Knights Templar, or any other military order with a white surcoat.

I actually love this! I love the windows, and I love how the bricks are somewhat not placed right, like some are to the sides. And love the old grey and new grey coming together in this!

Yay. Chuck posted again.

Really nice work, the castle has a nice texture to it, and it is really well built. Well done. Wink

Great brick work Chuck. Nice to see you back. Would have loved to seen some more difficult angles from a talented builder such as yourself. Keep them coming. Wink

Originally there were some more angles, in addition to a tiny courtyard and two rounded towers, but I found the design to be impractical, and I opted for the current shape.

It's a good start... I like how you kept it small to start off. Oh, and will you make another one with all those light bley pieces you ordered? Wink

I used up most of the pieces I ordered on this. I may try and make a single rounded building in the future with the technic beams.
