Color and texture can go a long way in making a model look realistic and properly aged for the context you're trying to create. Log bricks show up in the walls here, and a mottled use of colors (note the darker grey color mixed in on the walls) does a good job of making the castle look old and worn from a distance. Other highlights include upside-down boat studs as stones and stunning water detailing. The inside of this castle doesn't look bad, either - but why are there Star Wars tauntauns in there?
