A fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt built a phenomenal replica of Kaer Morhen with LEGO. Since the official LEGO set for The Witcher are nowhere to be found, and the demand for them is obvious, enthusiasts have created many of their own models over the years.
Kaer Morhen was originally built by the Nords centuries before the events of The Witcher 3 and loosely translated from the language of the elders means "Old Sea Fortress". Located in the Blue Mountains, far from the eternal wars that tormented the regions south of it, it served as a place of rest and training for witchers. After the events of the anime The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which recounts Vesemir's early years when Kaer Morhen became the scene of a disastrous battle. But the castle continues to serve as a refuge for the surviving witchers, although it needs repairs.
The image, courtesy of Rampart87, shows a detailed replica of the dilapidated castle, replete with fun additions that are unique to this version. For informal work, the adherence to a uniform color scheme is admirable, and the encircling base perfectly represents the rough, dangerous mountain structure on which Kaer Morhen stands. The bridge, which is the only entrance to the castle, leads to a short stretch of the "Torment Mill" - a treacherous path that spans Kaer Morhen, which must be overcome in order to reach it.
The damage caused by the destruction in the end of the 12th century is worked out in great detail, the partially completed towers represent large-scale acts of vandalism. In the comments, where some lamented the low resolution for wanting to see more, several ancillary elements were noted to be highly acclaimed, including Yennefer throwing her mattress away as a nod to a hot moment from the game's third installment. The unofficial set was unveiled at Brick Days earlier this year, a LEGO convention in Nebraska, to much-deserved praise.
The work weighs 45 kg, consists of 80 thousand parts, and is estimated at 7000 USD. It took six months to create this masterpiece.
