Before the release of this set I purchased the larger gates from bricklink. The low brick count limits these sets and something has to give, Im glad it wasn't the minifigure count. Compare for example against tower raid 7037 that has plenty of depth and is basically two individual three dimensional units.

I always thought this would be a good set for a young builder to be able to purchase and put together with Royal Kings castle.
I think this set with 8821 Rogue Knight Battleship are the pick of KK2 match them with the viking chess set and Royal kings castle and what a complete castle range for 2006.
