This is the second set in my series of custom modular Castle sets. It is similar in size and part count to what an official set would be. The wall can hinge and features a breakable wall panel for the ballista to knock down. The ballista actually works and is surprisingly powerful. Total piece count, including figs is 168 parts. See the ballista in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLqT9A29F90
All prices include shipping to anywhere in the US. Price for the complete set is 25$ Without the minifigs: 19$ For just the wall and defending soldier: 18$ And for just the ballista and attacking soldier: 10$

Great job on the tumble-down wall effect. And with the hinge, it looks to like it can function as either a segment of a 4-wide wall, or a cap to an 8-wide - or am I off-base with that? Anyway, it really looks like something TLC could take some notes from.

@Sir Erathor: Thanks

@Azaghal: Thanks Azaghal, here is a picture showing the wall hinged all the way: http://brickbuilt.org/Castle/2014/Ballista-Strike/closed.JPG Because of the hinges it wouldn't really work as a section of an 8 wide wall.

@Brickninja: Thank you, I'm selling these for the prices listed above if you're interested :)

Great Work again Issac! I think the whole idea of building and selling your sets is awesome and I think you will do great. There are so many useful parts, I hope the LEGO company takes a hint and starts putting more useful pieces in their sets. By the way, congrats on the CC frontpage! :)

Happy Building,
Sir Valiant~
