Flesh And Bones - The Vampire Castle

Hello my friends of the dark,
vampires, ghouls, zombies and other creatures of the night.
The mighty castle, simply known as
"Flesh and Bones", has been a home for vampires since the dawn of time.
In the meantime, some of the servants built poor huts around the castle, forming a small village.
The castle itself looks like painted with blood.
Vampires never clean up, the mortal remains of the poor victims are still lying in the moat, waiting for a burial.
Crows are guarding the castle, are they the only living creatures here..?

This castle really has a vampiric touch to it! And it looks really good! Perfect for vampires, the only thing that we don't have are coffins, but we can download them separately

Incredibly detailed - Candlelight I've already told you what I think of this lot, it is mind-boggling to see just how creative you really are - the pool of blood, the dungeon cell in the ground, the blood drenched walls - chillingly good and fantastically clever. Another awesome masterpiece Candlelight!

Holy Crap! I love this lot. From the sheer size all the way down to the small details. Now just have to get Late Night to get a real Vampire to lake up residence in it.

I would never run a lot this large in my game, but omg is this beautiful! This is extremely well done. The pools of blood achieved with clever paint are my favourite part. Stunning work.

Wonderfully creepy! I especially like the access to the moat from inside the castle and the roof bridge and fountain pool.

Oh, candlelight! This is my favorite creation of yours by far. The purple decor is gorgeous and fitting, and the castle has that all-around authentic feel to it. I'm especially enamored of the skeleton burning at the stake. Wonderfu!

I just have to agree with all the comments. I esp. like that you thought of all the expansion packs (including the new one this fall), rarely do creators create a room to display gems and collectibles. I was going to add that the kitchen is a little small but then I realized that the inhabitants probably don't do any cooking....they like their meals fresh and raw. LOL

Looks amazing and scary! My poor computer could never handle a lot like that, I'm afraid, but you're lot truly is very authentic looking and so detailed.

no, flesh because of the wall-color, bones because of the skeletons in the moat
