well those castles are actual castle designs (crusaders) and hate to burst peoples bubbles castles lacked in color and the only color you would see is the off-white look from weathering.

alot of people have been influenced by Hollywood, but in reality Castles were ugly dirty places where the people stank and there was garbage and shit all over the place, even the King and Queen wore clothes dirty and stained, and very few bathes were taken, they were like a yearly affair.

so when I see "Colorful" castles I think nice but not realistic.

The first one is big and fugly.  Dude obviously spent enough money on Legos to make it... buy some damn scenery.  

Second one is actually interesting.  It's a replica but there's a lot of things going on in an around the castle that makes it interesting to look at.  Thus proving that replica castles made from Legos don't have to be boring, monochromatic, or smelly  :P

I like the Krak one, but the belvoir seems boring. I mean it's out of league with what I could build but both could use a Heleopolis and an army to besiege them.

So this is Awe-inspiring to you...

and this is not as good.

I'm sorry but I question your taste. The below is prettier, has more detail, better construction techniques and all that bullshit people like. The below obviously was alot more work and looks alot better.

So many mega-ossum  castles  :shock:  :o

I want to build the Lost City on Dinoreich eventually and it will end up being as big as these castles so I'd better start saving up my bricks now.

I really like that, - a 100% stupid zone.  Should be written up in the Wiki somewhere.

I realised I wasn't cut out for a traditional wargaming club the day I couldn't persaude anybody to play to play Hordes of the Things instead of DBA.  
Has anybody realised yet that present day modern warfare as it is happening around the world at the moment is almost exactly like Brik Wars except that the ones doing the dying and getting torn to pieces aren't plastic minifigs, but people who can't be put back together anything like so well as a minifig can.
I mean I only thought it was in Brik Wars than an entire neighbourhood would get bombed flat on the off chance that a despotic dictator might be at home, but at the moment NATO is doing it most days.

Anyway back to the bricks.  I thought both those castles were pretty darn good and would be certainly be interesting to defend and or lay to siege.  Personally I wouldn't mind at all if my Purification Sisters of St. Attila were laying siege to an army of Protestant Toadmen from Saturn just so long as it was a rattling good game.  And of course it wouldn't matter who won or if anybody won at all.

@White Nun: I now think that instead of fighting with real-life guerrilla warfare, conflicts should be settled by playing Brikwars, with each leader being represented as a hero on a symbolic mythical beast (i.e. a giant eagle for the U.S.A., a giant moose for Canada, a giant sphinx for Egypt).

@Asterios: You're an absolute idiot.

You know it's bad when me and aoffan agree on something. Please die Asterios.

This castle is pretty sweet....
(Also, I agree, Asterios must die even  :godwin: , and he only agrees when it's something serious.)


Oh wow!  That flying castle is amazing.  I want one for the White Sector, - it can be the Archbishop's flying palace  :o  :shock:

Now now, I can't really approve of people wanting other people to die.  As a part of my vocation I pray for the dying and I have quite enough folk to pray for already without anyone else getting fingered.  Let's instead pray for him to become enlightened and as a result be a much nicer Brik Wars player to know.  And yes I know I'm a terrible optimist, but it sort of goes with the territory.

Or the universe will blow up destroying all your (15000) minifigs!
