I love all of this stuff. How many castles have you accumulated at this point?

These are currently all bigger builds I've got for medivo, but just ordered a bulk of light gray bricks to maybe add one tower and loads of walls to the set!

Have you considered using studs to achieve a coblestone look on your buildings?

I have and I do possess a sizeable amount of the newer "headlight" pieces, but I've been lazy to actually take the buildings apart and add those dots and tiles for the effect.

Meanwhile...

Although it may seem quite simple, what are your building strategies when building small medieval keeps and forts, what would your advice be on taking apart the kingdoms red lion castle for parts?  I want to try and build a little castle that's fairly historically accurate.

Do you have excess parts to compliment the Kings Castle? You can easily build a fancy looking castle by following straight lines, do not try to go with anything too detailed. Start of making a tower with basic bricks, and swap to panels if you run out of gray bricks (When I build castles and stuff, I value the basic 1x2,1x3,1x4 light bluish gray bricks). I find it that lego sets generally use panels and other stuff that don't really give you a lot to build with so I tend to stay away from lego sets and buy bricks in bulk directly from bricklink. When you build castles you really want to have loads of basic bricks around.

What really brings the castle alive is the height, so you want to build high, also different levels. I think here is a great very classic castle build without anything too fancy going on and it still looks dope! Even if you remove the base and just build the castle from one level it would look grand. Could you accomplish something similiar with the bricks you've got available, maybe in a smaller scale?

Looks quite warlike and almost barbaric, I love it!  What's your budget for brickwarriors orders?

Cheers mate! I don't sport any kind of budget for orders, I order through impulse and feeling. I work full time so I have excess cash to spend on my hobbies.

Also, how do you guys feel about new Weisshaupt helmets? Does it wörk? I got bored to those shiny clad stock helmets and now that Nokheim got new ones, decided to try out how their helmets fit the Weisshaupt troops.

So would I, given that Weisshaupt is a sort of kleptocracy, it gives them the "looks can be deceiving" appearance.  You'd think they're good guys because of the bright colours they wear, but the helmets tell a different story.
