This build is a medieval style castle that was inspired by my childhood desire to have such sets. As a kid, I wasn’t blessed enough to have any castle set. After my dark age with Lego I was eyeballing with making one for a while, and finally decided to make one.
It took me a bit over two months from start to finish to make the model. Of course I had some breaks here and there…
The model itself was built using 2727 bricks (according to stud.io), however as minifigs on their own are generally counted as 4 pieces we can deduct some parts to be around 2700.
The physical size is (width/length/height)
- 34 x 42 x 39 studs
- 10.6 x 13.4 x 12.2 inches
- 27 x 34 x 31.1 centimeters
(this is just the castle, not including the horses and minifigs positioned outside of the castle for the pictures)
Weight is 59 oz / 1671 grams. (If assembled. I had to stick to digital for now unfortunately)
For rendering I used light emitting bricks, however they can all be replaced with Trans-Orange color bricks. This way ALL elements used actually exist and can be bought today. Though some are a bit older, however according to bricklink they can be sourced.
The reason why I think this could be a great set, because castle builds are very popular, and a unique one like this, with great playability could trigger nice memories for AFOLs and bring a lot of joy to kids of current age too.
The castle is built on a 32x32 baseplate surrounded by water.
- It includes
- Market place
- Armory for the soldiers
- Living quarter
- Spiral staircase tower with balcony
- ...any many more nice details.
I included 12 minifigs in the build. Go have a look at them all!
Of course the castle wouldn’t be a castle without a drawbridge.
