Hey, guess what? I built. Yeah. And, believe it or not, I built Castle. Karrde's entries into the Classic-Castle Time Twisters contest inspired me to try something like it - a small Castle MOC, which I can really sink my teeth into without the need for bucketloads of light bley for castle walls. I had a great idea for a set to 'castlify' last night, and so this morning I set to work doing just that. I think it's come out quite well, actually - you'll have to judge that for yourself when I take pictures of it in a couple of days' time. It's quite a wacky idea - I hope everyone will 'get it'.
I've just been browsing Titolian's Flickr 'stream. He's a very good builder, very good. It's a shame he uses so much BrickArms and BrickForge... I'd prefer everything to be purist, though, so that's just my opinion. What I don't get is that he uploads images of Space Orcs, or random tablescrap minifigs, and they get more comments and faves than any of my pictures ever get! Not that I don't like the minifigs, I just find it a tad unfair. I guess it's because he uses BrickArms. Y'know what, I'll use BrickArms in my upcoming Blood in the Snow diorama. Then I can upload it to the BrickArms group, and we'll see what happens.
ps. Oooh, before I go, here's another Photoshopped picture from the backlog of phone pics. It's not as good as the other one, but I just can't seem to make this one look interesting.
