Classic Lego Build: 6094 Guarded Treasury

In today's build report we have a Castle set which I really love.

Released 16 years ago and counting 95 parts, this build compromises of two small towers, but they actually "tell a tale" for my taste as part of the Kingdoms I subtheme.

The set comes with two minifigures, namely a man-at-arms and a rather rough looking soldier.

Now, this is the era Lego used a lot of those 8x8 bricks as bases, the Harry Potter range for example comes to mind, and a green one of these serves as the base for the first building.

This is a sort of prison cell block, and we raise the backwall fist, including barred windows.

A heavy celldoor is then placed at the front.

The top of the building is then added, and we can have the man-at-arms stand guard there, before moving to the second building.

Also starting on a green 8x8, this one has a higher groundfloor.

The tower we are now putting together holds a mystical sword in a holder, and the building is actually build around this.

I love those lionhead elements...

As the pillars are raised, we start closing off the roof.

A small tower is then placed on top to complete this little building as well.

The tower comes with a trapdoor, that makes short work of thiefs trying to steal the sword.

And the full set stands completed:

I really, really like this set.  For something so small, it has some cool play features, and tells a story.  Can the heroic man-at-arms capture and lock-up the ruffian?  Can he steal the sword?  Great fun!
