  1. The Cuboid Castle that Samuel Marron has visited is probably worth a few additional pictures It was probably not my best idea to shoot a grey castle against a grey background... This is where Samuel Marron goes to seek for further support in the battle agains Ravaage. Inspired by La Sagrada Familia I had build two differently coloured glass windows. one blueish - one reddish C&C Welcome, pictures to be found on my flickr album.
  2. "I got it", cried the Garvian privateer. "Steady", shouted the other. "It is mine. I have caught it first", yelled the Marderian fisherman. All of them were pretty ignorant of the large wave that was approaching the two vessels rapidly ... It was a huge wave indeed... This is my "just in time" entry for this category I think I got everything covered: 2 vessels (brick built), fish (brick built), wave (brick built). C&C welcome! (more and larger pictures can be found on flickr)
  3. Did you know that there is a regular apple transport ship going from Pontelli to Nova Terelli? For reasons unbeknownst monkeys have never shown any interest in the ship and the load she carries.
  4. Horror, fear and loathing in Nova Terreli! A nighmarish naval beast has attacked the Eslandolean coast line, destroyed ships and a coastal battery. The citizens of Nova Terreli are in shock... Be prepared for a terrible story of unnecessary violence and bloodshed. Behold Karl Kraken with his latest prize (slightly damaged). I hope I got the challenge conditions right. I was confused about which side to depict. So, if you want me to show an attack on Mardier instead, I will swap the uniform bricks (using orange): More/larger pictures on my flickr account.
  5. Sorry about that title. I would like to present the first part of an Eslandola plantation collaboration of Garmadon & Captain Braunsfeld: The EWTC Oat Planation of Pontelli. If you look carefully you might spy some strange characters: ... strange transporting activities ... .. birds that need to be fed... .. and sometimes, trees are growing overnight: Size of this grand EWTC plantation part: 64 x 64. C&C Welcome. Over to Garmadon.
  6. The Desert King had come to inspect the progress of his latest war machine: The Trojan Camel (named after its inventor Abdul Trojan). Unfortunately this incredible piece of military hardware had not been 100% completed by the time of the inspection. Excellent craftsmen from Mitgardia and Kaliphlin were working together to complete the Camel. An aerial view of the construction site: This is the Trojan Camel: And another view to show the landscape: C&C welcome!
  7. It was a bright day and the sun was beating down on the streets of Kings Port. Inside the governor's hall the temperature and the mood was much milder. Admiral van Draumen had found the courage to propose to her - Princess Vinapptshitshi of Mardier, King Alphonso's beloved daughter. As he kneeled down before her she gladly answered his beaming smile - and his proposal by a softly whispered "yes". Van Draumen had backed his proposal with a show-off of his riches, but it seemed that the princess cared more for him than for his money. Which was good, as van Draumen did not expect the King to approve of this marriage. Troubled times lay ahead, but this was not the time to worry. This was a day to celebrate C&C Welcome.
  8. Shortly before heading off to the docks of Pontelli to check out a new small armed sloop while waiting for his first mate to return from Eslandola's Old World capital of Terelli... Captain Whiffo strode up and down the porch in ecstacy, gazing out across the large, verdant plantation now covered with ready-to-harvest oats. The workers scurrying hither and yon (under the watchful eyes of their monkey supervisors which Mayor da Pontelli had provided, of course) were an absolute pleasure to behold. The East Trade Wind Company had finally taken the large step he had meditated so long, and in no time it would assuredly be as large, powerful, and rich in the new world as it ever was in the old! (One of the monkey supervisors on his courier:) Wheels rattled along the road and the Captain looked up intelligently, if not mysteriously (mostly, you see, because he loved mystery, not because there was any real mystery in the whole affair). For once he was not carrying his beloved cutlass, as he was not sure but that it would get in the way while showing de Chauncourtois' niece about the house and new plantation which she had come out to see (though he was sorely inclined to regret leaving it behind as its clanking was the only thing missing - he thought - to perfect the sensation of mysteriousness) - but he might as well as have spared his pains, for he could have known from previous experience that his cutlass and his habit of rapping it on his hook and smashing it into everything was a constant source of amusement to de Chauncourtois' good-humored niece. The carriage rolled to a stop just before the door - and Captain Whiffo, throwing the cutlass with an effort out of his mind (for the present), bowed slightly and offered her his hand. "Good day, miss, shall I show you inside?" ...Speaking of which! - Let's go inside, shall we? Originally I had only been planning on the hinging wall, but in the end, the roof was detachable as well, so thankfully the interior was very easy to take pictures of! It is furnished with a large kitchen, Some furniture... An instrument - And a good-sized (if not over-sized ) fireplace: A few closeups: The pig-pen (the colors of which were inspired especially by Ayrlego's recent challenge entry, along with the rest of that collab)... And a final overview: And, I've finally finished! Just about ever since the launch of the Brethren of the Brick Seas I've been meaning to build a large plantation for the ETWC, but only recently have I been able to actually get around to planning and building it. Here's my section of the collab with Captain Braunsfeld (be sure to check out his excellent section here) for Eslandola's East Trade Wind Company. It took a great deal longer than I was hoping for (mostly due to RL), but I'm rather happy with how it turned out, and it was definitely fun (and somewhat challenging at times) to attempt to make it clearly part of the same plantation and yet give it my own touch (well, I suppose that last part came pretty naturally! ) Special thanks to Captain B for working on this collab and waiting very patiently for my side here to be complete! Credit goes to Gideon for the door design and to Legopard for the chair (slightly altered here), and the carriage is a modification of the one found in LEGO's excellent POTC London Chase. Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!
  9. The moonlit night was cold and icy. His horse had been shot underneath him and so he was carrying on through the snowy night. But wait: there was a shadow before him, surely one of his enemies. He readied his double-axe, preparing for battle. He did not see the other warrior, standing on higher ground... Some more shots to illustrate the scene: This picture gives a better view of the footsteps in the snow: C&C welcome! ...................................................................................................................................................................... It has occurred to me that I need to depict the late horse too. However, this seems to kill the mood of the scene...
  10. Happy times seem to be over for Eslandola. And due to the recent attacks by Mardier the mood of the members of the Eslandolean Council has changed drastically: Something must be done. Way back in happier times, even a painting of the Council had been comissioned: C&C welcome.
  11. Humans find a strange obelisk on the Moon: They have no idea where it came from... Now secret footage of what happened a few weeks earlier has been found: C&C Welcome
  12. The "Orange Herring" is a famous tavern... .. and usually quite crowded. Thick smoke from many cigars is blurring the sight - of a poker game. That strange Marquis from Oleon was not much of a talker, but he could play extremely well. The dubloons were soon piling up next to the Marquis. Captain Cookie was watching in amazement... .. while cavern keeper Barry the Bald was eyeing whether a fight was about to break out - or not. Another view without the roof (left top: a lady of the night...) C&C Welcome! (I have not decided yet where the Orange Herring is located. Any suggestions? I might license it right there.) A few more pics and larger versions can be found in the corresponding flickr album.
  13. Colonel Brickinson is happy to join the MUG-merrynight-fun: This is an answer to Kolonialbeamter's recent MOC. (Unfortunately a creation in yellow was not possible...) All the best for 2017!
  14. I'd like to present a piraty island that ArchitectureFan and myself have created: "Dodo Island" was part of the pirate layout @ Brickmania Antwerpen in November. That is one of the Dodos (created by ArchitectureFan). Here are a few more from a WIP shot: I was quite happy with the waterfall: Some strange characters have appeared on the island: The island was huge when built at home (and we were not able to take decent pictures). As part of the pirate layout the island was small (and we were not able to take decent pictures). C&C Welcome! ArchitectureFan & Captain Braunsfeld
  15. The Pontellis are getting ready for the Merrynight celebration. That is Alberto, Natasha and George da Pontelli are exchanging presents, drinking hot spiced wine (one of them is drinking banana juice) and eat the traditional banana cake. And then they will relax by the light of their beautiful Merrynight Cactus: (As you may know, there are no fir trees on Nellisa.) This is an entry to the "Nellisan Merrynight Challenge" - Category B - Celebrations. C&C welcome!
  16. SW158 C-3PO - Chrome Gold (SW 30th Anniversary Edition) up for sales.

    You find it at{"showHomeItems":1}

  17. This is my entry to the mini challenge: The gangs of Charlatan Bay. These mean guys mean business: The Red Hat Gang. The boss: Big Red Riding Hood He is usually the one with a plan. His lieutenant: Harold Handbag. In battle, harold is wielding a loaded purse (containing a brick). Iron Carl - the problem solver of the gang. Guitar George - he knows all the chords. As well known amongst role players, bards perform an essential job as they keep up the gang's spirit. That is they sing and dance while the others fight. Dunno why. Must be a strange tradition. Smashed-Bottle Billie - always willing to fight for the right to protect the poor. Don't go looking for them. They'll find you! C&C Welcome!
  18. .. after all the buckets had been filled the Colonel told his men to build: Sand Castles This is one of the small scenes that took place on "Dodo Island" (which actually seems to be a part of the beach next to Pontelli) "Dodo Island" was presented at Brickmania Antwerpen last month. C&C welcome!
  19. This is my entry for the Mini-Challenge: The Grand Road of Nellisa. "Action on the Road" Somewhere near the Terelli Hills things are going to be heating up very soon. The Corringtonean coach and the Eslandolean coach are facing each other. None of the drivers is willing to give way... the passengers are siding with them. Who will be the first one to steer the coach into the swamp? And what lies ahead? Some people on the side of the road seem to be waiting for their chance... [Build contains 8 minifigs and one monkey] The larger versions of the pictures can be found on flickr C&C welcome! [Number of studs: 48 * 81 = 3888] .
  20. With King Fernando gone, everyone was happy in the East Wind Trading Company. Colonel Brickinson found it cool to hang out with the gang and have a celebration This is my entry for the categories II and III: Category II: The Trade Companies’ Reactions Category III: Your Sigfig's Reaction
  21. Things were going well for King Fernando. His dog had stayed true to him. Plus the coins that he found in his crown every night enabled him to keep up a decent level of booze-induced indifference every day. People passing by kept wondering about that strange drunken impersonator... This is an entry for the the "The King's Demise" challenge - Category I: King Fernando’s Reaction (And I need to mention that I used orange, dark orange, dark red, olive green and purple - otherwise this might have been a nice vignette )
  22. Another attraction was built in Pontelli: A renaissance-style bath (sponsored by Colonel Brickinson). From Saturday to Wednesday this was a great place for everyone to go and have a bath... ... like this young musketeer who is about to jump into the pool. For some strange reason Brickinson had insisted on those reliefs that showed a crowned monkey head. Nobody knew why. (Except for the followers of Brickinson's adventures) On Thursdays, Brickinson was practising his swimming skills. On Friday evenings, Brickinson had reserved the bath for his wife and himself. On Friday mornings, Alberto and George da Pontelli carried out complex naval experiments in the bath. For some reasons, no Pontelli citizen entered the bath on a Friday the 13th... C&C Welcome
  23. The wild festivities of the Weelond Octoberfest also feature a Wet Corset Contest The contest was staged by "Shabby Boris" whose job it was to provide the required ballistic quantities of water. His friends were enjoying the show... ... and while the ladies, Penny and Amy were willing to join the frivolous activity ... ... Sergeant Filipe (member of the City Watch) was less amused. C&C welcome.
  24. A large crowd gathered to hear what Mayor Alberto da Pontelli had to say after Nelissa had declared independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that the former King Fernando Augusto has turned into a madman and that every Eslandolean citizen has certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." "We the People of Pontelli, in order to form a more perfect union with Nova Terreli, will join the Eslandolan Republic of Nelissa, establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." "Every Oleander who shall come to us, be it a soldier or civilian, shall be welcomed as a friend." "Every ship sent by the former King Fernando shall be blown into pieces by our coastal artillery, if they do not declare themselves for the Eslandolan Republic of Nelissa." The crowd cheered. Behold this elite soldier. [Second Speaker] This is happening a bit too early according to our plan. [First Speaker] Yes, but madness of an individual will always disturb our calculations. In five years from now we will get Eslandola back into the overall plan. [Second Speaker] There is a guy in Corrington, called Hari Seldon. He claims that he wants to join our mathematical team. [First Speaker] Ok, let him become part of the team, but give him some of the easier calculations. He is a human after all and we should not challenge him too hard. [Second Speaker] Yes , Sir. C&C welcome - a bit of a rush build as things are developing so quickly.
  25. There was a strange cave by the sea. A blue light shone... ... and a blue cookie monster appeared coming out of the cave. Then the light changed to grey: ... and a grey cookie monster emerged - just before the light changed again: to green: And there on the beach was a colourful family of cookie monsters: (I was toying with my new, compatible light bricks)
