Hello!

I'm a long time reader of these forums. As my kid is only just old enough that I have time to build (and only just old enough to build with me), I finally got off of my lazy backside to register.

I've been a fan of Lego castle ever since I received 6080 as a kid, but that was my only Lego castle set growing up. :(

Most of my first paycheck, of course, went into another 6080, a king's mountain fortress, the armored inn, and enough spare parts to link all three castles in a glorious 64x64 square with a sizable Crusader garrison. My childhood Lego dream was complete, and I was content for a while... until I discovered this site saw what everyone else was building here (Haidios castle at the time (and many, many others since) --I've been lurking that long). I've rebuilt that same 64x64 castle so many times over the past years that only a very strong imagination can still see the two 6080s linked together with the 6081, though I think the original raised baseplate is still under there somewhere. The latest version is still under construction, and it's a joy to share that building fun with a little version of me.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. :wave:

I'm still quite a few BrickLink orders short of completing my current build. I hope to post something soon.

Hey Cookiesdad,

Welcome to CC! You should post pictures of your mashup of the 6080s and 6081. You'll find a lot of us appreciate the style of the 80s and 90s sets. Indeed, there's a category in the CCC that's focused on just that. Looking forward to seeing your MOCs.

A little late on the draw here, but hello and welcome! I'm pretty new myself :D And 6080 was one of the best castles of all time. The first castle I received for Xmas was Black Falcon's Fortress, but the first castle I /saw/ was at a friend's house, and it was Black Monarch's Castle; this was the one that got me excited in Lego Castles. Have fun posting here!

Edit: Err, sorry, 6085.
I have a different story about 6080 which is also awesome... but my main point: welcome!

I'm going to have to dig through my photo archives for that castle. That build is long gone.

I'm hoping to enter something for the CCC (clearly 80s influenced), but it's too big except for the misc. category. It's just one more Bricklink order away... (of course, I've told myself that five orders ago).
