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.

The Lonesome Goatherd

When did rocks start becoming so cool? I remember back in 2012, I went to a rock building seminar at BrickCon, and it was about how to mix up your slopes to create ‘natural’ rocks… less than two years later that seems almost like silly approach… Tim Schwalf (One More Brick) has built this incredible scene ontop of some very nice rocks:

I almost can’t stop looking at the wonderful rocks Tim has done! There are lots of things to love in this build, the little roof, the goats and or even the inspired circular fence. But the ROCKS! I can’t stop raving about how well done the rocks are. Tim if you ever hold a rock building seminar, sign me up please.

A Typical Cottage

Giorgos Solomonidis calls this build “A Typical Cottage” but I think there are a number details that really make this stand out. I love the rickety look of the fences and the ramshackle aspect of the roof really catches the eye. The color palette was well-thought out and is colorful without being garish or too busy. The brick-built cows are a nice touch too!

And the Walls Came Tumblin’ Down

The traditional LEGO vignette (on a 6×6 or 8×8 base) seems to be less in vogue these days than it was a few years ago, but this slightly larger vignette by Matthew Oh has such a great sense of motion that it instantly caught my eye. Depicting the Biblical miraculous destruction of the ancient walled city of Jericho, this vignette makes excellent use of implied motion to draw the viewer in.

A tavern fit for a traveling king

César Soares (csar_soares) says that this medieval tavern is his first Castle-themed model, and only his fifth LEGO model that he designed himself. That’s frankly a bit hard to believe given the detail and the polish, so I’m going to make myself feel better by assuming that César means that it’s the fifth he’s posted publicly. Because look at that roof and those walls!

And since we haven’t featured César on The Brothers Brick before, here’s some lovely microscale landscaping, with a train heading into a tunnel under a mountain, atop which perches a very precarious castle:
