  1. [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]1. Are you still around? [i]Yes. I haven't been around for quite some time, but I try to check the forum at least once a week.[/i][/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]2. What are you working on? [i]Lego related, nothing. Just busy with real life - but times will come, when I miss my little plastic bricks more and I will surely build something again. But I can't promise you a MOC soon...[/i][/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]3. Where is the best play to see your work? [i]Flickr: [/i][/font][/color]https://www.flickr.com/photos/buurli_burri/ [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]4. What Challenges and tasks have you completed? [i]I didn't keep track of it. I might update this post, when I looked it up...[/i][/font][/color]
  2. I already admired this on Flickr. The tree looks very nice and the landscaping around it is simply beautiful. The springlike atmosphere you created is fantastic. I also adore how you put foilage in the whole build, but let small spots open so that we can still se all the work you put in the ground. Keep it on!
  3. Nice to see photos of your part now! I agree with ME, your photo is very nice (way better than mine of my part). Seeing this in person, I can say that I simply loved the abbey and the moving minifigures were a nice addition. Great work my friend, I'm looking forward to meet you again and see more things you'll build ;-).
  4. [quote name='Petric_G' timestamp='1458547898' post='2507326'] IdS,... :-( [/quote] Hey I can see that weeping smiley right next to IdS and I know that it's there (part of) because of me . I rather used my build for "Die Neun Reiche" than for GoH (as it was planned), so I won't post it here on Eurobricks officially, but I'll let you see a picture in this thread: [url=https://flic.kr/p/EAFfN4][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1468/25333977183_d4a6b5fbd7.jpg[/img][/url]
  5. Hey [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Blufiji[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]This is an awesome build . I already saw it on Flickr and now finally found the time to comment on it here in the "correct" forum ;-). The way you did the snowscape, the greebles in the walls and the mix between wood- and stonework: They are all perfect. I also like how you broke the dull colours up with the bright flags and the green arms, but I also think that it could have used some little bit more of it(for example a green torso on the second minifig).[/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]he second thing about which I can (try to [/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]) give some advice: The door seems very small. Is that intended? If not, I recommend to make it a little bit larger next time.[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Again, this a a beautiful build and the idea to build it next to a hot spring is very nice and well executed.[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Greeting[/font][/color]s [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Simon[/font][/color]
  6. Very nice! I love the classic feeling you get when you look at the build. The house is clearly the highlight of the whole build. I like the roof and also the walls have a good amount of detail in them. From the outside I like it very much, but I'm not a fan of the interior. The unattached tiles are exaggerated for my taste and the whole room seems rather plain. As advice I can say this: I'd rather make a clean, flat floor and put more furniture in there to keep the eye attracted. I'd also use a brickbuilt blanket instead of capes. All in all, this is a beautiful build, which shows us that we don't need the newest pieces and colours to create something great. Keep up the good work and kind regards, Simon
  7. Very nice LV! The base and the gate both look very good . I also like that you kept the colours simple and monotonous (in a good way!). The whole build also reminds me a lot of SoT's work... I guess his builds and stories will always be a great source of inspiration. Great work, keep it up !
  8. Hey guys, it's been quite some time since I've posted here. I thought I'd write some words simply to show that I'm not dead and that I'm also still interested in GoH . Building my greek city (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=122276&hl=%2Bclassical+%2Bgreek) has taken most of my free time. And when I haven't been building I explored the german community Imperium der Steine, because they launched a new RPG there. It's a lot easier to write in my mothers tongue and so also more enjoyable for me . Now I started reusing the landscape of the greek city for a castle diorama, which will be a collab at an exhibition. My part should be finished in a week (because the convention starts in a week ) and will fit well in Avalonia, so I will post it here too. Also welcome to all the new members who have joined since I posted in this thread the last time . I hope you can have a nice time here in GoH and improve your building skills. Greetings to all of you! Simon
  9. I know I've not been very much around here lately... so I checked the frontpage from time to time and saw that I didn't won. Now I just took another look at the subforum and at this thread and realized happily that I still won a battlepack . Thanks a lot for hosting and congrats to all the other winners!
  10. Thank you all for the kind comments and especially Ecc for frontpaging my build!
  11. Hello After a long month of building, I've finally completed my latest MOC: [b]A Classical Greek Polis[/b] [url=https://flic.kr/p/DnTsY9][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1583/24532888264_eafb148323_z.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/DnTsY9]A Classical Greek Polis[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/buurli_burri/]Simon Schweyer[/url], on Flickr Description: In this build I tried to show the Greek culture in a small city. I don't claim that it is realistic or even 100% historical correct - I rather tried to put in there as much elements that are typical for (ancient) Greece. Yeah, it's very clichéd. So I included (from the right to the left): - An oracle (θόλος), inspired by the one in Delphi - A herder with some goats. Not something special Greek, but in very many tragedies (for example: Oedipus) and myths (for example Pan, God of the sheperds) they play an important role. - A trireme, which is a typically Greek war galley - A vineyard: Who doesn't love Greek wine? - The house with the tan dome: Inspired more by Santorini (also known as RedBull's Free Running City) than by anything ancient. But still fits in here. - Behind it is the Agera (Ἀγορά) with a statue on it: It was a free space used mainly for public meetings (best view in the third picture) - Behind it, a Greek theater. In the classical Greek Era, they didn't have any backdrops yet. Of course this theater is way too small, in comparison to the other buildings and the minifigs, but who cares? - Last but not least (actually in the center of the build): A Greek temple (νaός), built in an ionic order, like the Artemision in Ephesos You can view more pictures of it in this Flickr Album: [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/buurli_burri/albums/72157664858180846]Ancient Greece[/url] Thanks for looking and have a nice evening! - Simon Schweyer
  12. Welcome Luckypat and Asad! @Asad: You did everything right ;-)
  13. Lovely tower . Those fancy oriental arches with the two windows behind them give a fantastic look! And of course, Tatooine makes a great doom. The landscape around it is also very nice, I'm especially fond of your unique palm tree design. It's always good seeing people trying something new and achieving great results . Great job, keep up the good work! Greetings Simon
  14. Oh wow, that trees look so nice! I was about to say that the photography isn't that good, because we can barely see them, but you just posted the pictures with tan background . The foilage looks also nice, especially with the brown carrottops and that cute little bush in there. I also like that you made the rocks and the path very simple, otherwise the build would have been overtextured. Of course the trans-clear water fits the colour sheme too (way better than blue one would have done). Keep up the good work! - Simon
  15. Welcome back, Angeli :-). We missed you and it's so great to see you here again. This build is very impressive! It's crazy what you have done with such a small part selection. Your photography is also top-notch. It inspires me to try something similar... I have bought a lot of trans clear bricks recently and thought many times about building a MOC just with these, but still haven't done it. For advice I can say that it totally lacks in colours . No, seriously, there's no way to execute that brilliant idea better. Well done! Greetings, Simon
