- Love the lego reconstruction. A nice added bonus.
- That's the damn biggest moat I've ever seen.
- Great job, but too bad that all the pictures are from the same angle.
- Lovely. I'm so sorry to hear it isn't yours. Almost as sorry that it isn't mine.
- This place is just begging for a siege.
- Should be international law that all privately owned castles can be sieged. You have to use period appropriate weapons though. And file the appropriate paperwork. The defenders are of course allowed to fight off the siege as long as they also use period appropriate weapons and methods. So watch out for the hot oil.
- So watch out for the hot oil. Just wait for me to get my fries out. Seeing as it's in Belgium and all.
- You want to vandalise such a cute little cottage-castle as this? Brute.
- I don't. But I do have this Scandinavian friend who is itching to do some pillaging.
- probably get more pillage-profit from stripping metal off roofs.
- It's pretty unlikely medieval castles used hot oil for defence as much as the popular imagination holds. Oil was a pretty valuable resource, especially during a siege, and would have been reused multiple times. Dumping it on attackers would be a huge waste. They definitely dropped big rocks, boiling tar, quicklime, and hot sand on people though, so watch out for that.
- Balistas, trebuchets, catapults and wooden badgers at the ready m'lord.
- I wonder what a castle like this is worth, let alone if you can actually accurately calculate its worth. Absolutely beautiful, thank you Hoohill.
- It's worth exactly what the owner wants for it.
- I don't know how you know so much about castles, but you're awesome.
- Different people know different things. Some people know how to tie their own shoes or know the correct technique for kissing a badger. I know a few things about history and I know how to use google. Read more comments
