[MOC] Nag-Hum Keep

Nag-Hum keep is a medium-sized stronghold. It was build by the followers of the god of death named Krag-Dysh. Lion Knights have conquered it after a long siege. They rebuilt and renovated the rear part of the keep. The bridge and two black watch towers in front left untouched.

They also left untouched many religious symbols of Krag-Dysh. Many locals still believes in him so it seemed to be good idea. There is even small chapel at the top of the keep.

It has been 3 years since the siege ended. This is the first time in many years when important guests from Far East arrived on these lands. They are feasting together with the king and discuss sensitive issues for further conquests and conflict with Black Riders.

Lower rank Lion Knights are hunting for the Wolfpack members and Forestmen. These two scattered factions do not want to accept any king and their members are fugitives.

Building process of the keep took me around 1 week. It was total freestyle without buying new elements. I just wanted to relax and build from LEGO bricks I had. Mission was a success ;)

When I finished I was thinking about rebuilding the rocks. I abandoned that idea because I couldn't do that without demolishing most of the castle...

To be honest the most hard work was making photos of the keep. It was much harder then building it ;) It was before I build and photographed Isla de Kranium - Pirates' Skull Island. So it was my first attempt to make photos of such big LEGO object. It took me 2 days! I had some failures too. The towers and the bridge felt on the floor after falling lamp hit it... And no, that lamp wasn't there because I need it. It was just random lamp which shouldn't even be there ;) After the reconstruction I left with one extra light gray brick 1x2. I have no idea where it came from. I don't see anything missing from the keep :) Anyway I learn a lot that day. Shooting the next MOC (Isla de Kranium - Pirates' Skull Island) went pretty smooth :)
