After three years in the works, I bring to you my latest creation.
About this creation
This microscale creation began as an attempt to revisit and expand the style and design of my Stronghold by the Sea, built in 2013. In many ways, this was a freestyle build. Each section took form without much significant planning which made it quite enjoyable and relaxing to build. The final product weighs 7.6 lbs (3.4 kg). Enjoy!



Throughout the building process, my goal was to build a castle that would complement the landscape which I viewed as the focal point of the creation. I wanted anyone looking at the creation to see how any buildings and paths seemed to be either carved out of the hills or exist as a complement to its surroundings. Instead of stagnant lines, I hoped to create merging textures that resemble real life landscapes.


The citadel is built on a firm foundation with its towers and buildings planted on solid rock...


...and guarded by catapults standing like sentries overlooking the waterfall. The catapult is a new design and worked quite well for its scale.


The entrance into the castle is found on the side of the mountain.


Two statues hewn from solid rock guard the hidden passage.


Life-giving water flows down from the fortress to the town below.


The inhabitants enjoy the lush countryside nourished by the flowing river before it empties into the sea.


Down by the coast, the slopes form a natural strategic defense upon which two formidable keeps sit. The royal torch serves as a beacon to the ships. The king's own golden ship is anchored at the harbor.








Thanks for looking!

I love the microscale! It's so nice to see a castle/landscape MOC in bright colors and in microscale. My favorite parts are the windmill and the boats.

Quoting Nick Barrett Beautiful, the castle is a work of art.
Thank you, Nick!
Quoting MCLegoboy ! Geez man, where have you been? This looks great. The scale works so well, and the piece use is crazy like for that catapult. I'm usually not okay with those things because it's not exactly legal, but you get a pass from me.
It has been too long, I know. I definitely follow you. Microscale building is unique in its own way so I've allowed myself to take a few liberties here and there. Thanks for the comment!
Quoting Builder Allan Awesome! A great little micro build. Great work on the citadel and nice use of parts for the catapults :-)
Thank you, Builder Allan, I appreciate the feedback!
Quoting Seaman SPb Awesome!

Thanks all!
Quoting Noel Peterson I love how clean this thing looks! There are few studs, but there are still a ton of cool details to feast your eyes on.
Thank you, Noel. This was exactly what I was going for so I'm glad you enjoy it.
Quoting James Y. Wonderful microscale. Love the details down to the mill.
Appreciate it James!
Quoting Doug Hughes Brilliant work, so many awesome details!
Thanks Doug!
Quoting Werewolff . An incredible example of microscale building, well done! As you stated, the landscape is definitely the highlight, but the castle design is also gorgeous, and the little catapult is instantly recognizable despite part limitation. Nice!
I appreciate the comment. I'm glad the castle and landscape balance one another well.
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Gorgeous.
Quoting Graham Gidman This is a spectacular build! Such detail for microscale. Wonderful job!
