Dragons! Knights in shining armor! Trebuchets & ballistas! From enormous LEGO castles buttoned up for battle to peaceful village market scenes, we’ve got your LEGO Castle needs covered right here.

Looking inside the Inn

gid617 has brought us this absolutely adorable roadside inn. I love the distressed look and the thatched room goin’ on. I think the simple detailing and landscaping has done wonders.

Inside the Inn

Gotta admit: this makes me feel old. When I first ended my dark ages, and came back into the hobby, 3739 Blacksmith Shop had been released and the majority of castle themed non-castle buildings were in this tudor, open style. Somewhere along the line, people posted less of them. So this build makes me feel old and nostalgic.

Open and shut… A case of LEGO Castle sweetness

I love the detail on this tower and the half-timber walls of the building. The sparse landscaping is very nice and the stairs leading up to the door are very well executed. But what makes this build really stand out is the fact that it opens!

Building a beautiful castle is much harder than it looks. Building an accessible and believable interior is also much harder than it looks. Doing both of these in the same the build and making it look like the castle doesn’t actually open is something that Isaac S. has mastered.

The Conquest of Lampsacus

The indomitable Mark Erickson has created yet another beautiful scene. I love the detailing on all of these buildings. Mark has done a great job of packing them with believable historical detail, making them all work together while still keeping each building unique. Not an easy job at all. My hat is off to you, sir!

Mihai Marius Mihu curses louder than you and it shows

Mihai Marius Mihu calls this piece the “Citadel of the Loud Curse”. If I lived anywhere near that thing, I’d be running for the hills! I don’t know which is more frightening…the gaping red mouth or the silent ash-colored, house-crushing Titan. Regardless, this is a very striking build and, like good art, it draws out a response from its viewers. Mihai is exceptionally skilled at that!

The fortified city of Amortug

If you like big castles, we got another treat for you. This work by Marco den Besten (‘Ecclesiastes) and Tijger-San features a classical approach of using blocky gray wall and towers, but the patterns in the architecture makes an otherwise simple structure appear ornate. You can see more photos of the creation on Eurobricks.
