Mini Castle Contest VI
Bruce 26 IX 10

Once again, Robin Hood is hosting the Mini Castle Contest. This year there are two categories - one for ancient-themed micro MOCs, and a miscellaneous category for everything else. Check out entries from MCC I, MCC II, MCC III, MCC IV, MCC V, including last year's winners above, for inspirationg. Think big, build small, and have fun!

Unseen University
Bruce 23 IX 10

If you're a fan of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, you are probably already aware of one of our newest forum members, L_space. He has been putting together the buildings from the Unseen University, a school of wizardy, based on designs found in the Unseen University Cut Out Book. The Observatory is pictured above. He is currently building the Great Hall, and after that has plans for the central Tower of Arts. He hopes to have the whole university campus completed and ready for display by the end of next year.

L_space lives in a village near Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, where he is a member of Lowlug, in addition to Eurobricks. All of his MOCs can be found on Flickr, Brickshelf and MOCpages. In addition to his LEGO work, he also has a site devoted to all things Pratchett and Discworld at L-space.

Claymore now available from BrickArms
Trevor 14 IX 10

BrickArms has just updated their website with several new accessories castle builders might find useful, including their much anticipated Claymore sword. Go, go now!

Castle fans will also be able to pick these items up at the BrickArms booth at Brickcon this year.

Dawn Feather Keep
Bruce 8 IX 10

Robert Murphy, known as LegoLord in our forum, is a TFOL from Columbia, Tennessee. In his LEGO world, the Dawn Crown is an offshoot of the Crown Knights who are loyal to one royal family. King Cormac the First and General GoldenHammer have conquered the lands around them and rule the civilized world. Along the borderlands they are defending their kingdom from orc invaders, and have build a number of fortresses, including the Dawn Feather Keep.

In addition to CC, Robert is a member of FBTB and Classic-Space. All of his MOCs can be found on Flickr, MOCpages and Brickshelf.

Weekly Set Re-Review: Crusader's Cart
Ben E. 5 IX 10

Join the weekly Classic Castle set review discussion. Please post your opinions on the set play ability, piece selection, design, etc. Which sets stand up to our catapult of critique and which ones crumble in shame!

This week’s set is 1877 Crusader’s Cart.

Crusader’s Cart, part of Variety Pack 1675, was released in 1990. This was the last Forestman cart to appear in LEGO castle. The cart carries hay and has a secret compartment to hide a forestman.

Two forestmen, a saddle, a pitchfork, a whip, and various weapons are included. Set 1680 is identical to 1877 except it has an additional forestman with a red collar.
