Bruce 23 XI 10
Larsvader is an AFOL from Berlin.
His Great Hall is the centerpiece of a new castle he's building.
The custom banner was made by scanning in a shield design and simply printing it out at a larger scale.
The same design was incorporated into the mosaic floor.
If the rest of the castle reflects the care that went into this single room, the finished MOC will be a work of beauty indeed.
Larsvader is a member of 1000steine, and his MOCs can be found on MOCpages and

LEGO Fanwelt 2010 opens today in Cologne, Germany.
If you're able to attend, one of the great MOCs you'll see will be this collaborative castle display

All of these, of course, are also members of our forum, so hopefully after the event is over they'll be able to tell us all about it and share additional photos.

CC Team 1 XI 10
The CC Team is proud to announce our eighth annual building contest: The Colossal Castle Contest VIII.
It will begin on November 1st and end on December 31st, 2010.
This contest is a bit different than other contests.
We have a variety of categories each with one prize for the winner.
Some categories require small creations and others need larger ones.
Everyone, even with a limited supply of bricks, should be able to enter several categories.
We are looking for creativity, not who has the most LEGO.
Check out the prizes.
Seven Classic Castle sets including the highly popular Knight's Procession, Knight's Tournament, and Town Square are prizes.
There are are also vintage misb sets, custom medieval weapons, and new castle sets.
It truly is colossal!
Thank you to Rich Stehnach "Blackrock", Ben Ellermann, Trevor Van Aalst, BrickArms, BrickForge, The Brothers Brick, and the LEGO Company for donating prizes.
Classic-Castle would also like to thank Mike Rayhawk for the excellent work on his updated contest logo.
The rules can be found here. Enjoy!
