I've been wanting to build a theives guild for quite a while now and after seeing Thrash's theives guildI was inspired to finally make one.
This was a bit of a break from building Mechs and starfighters.

The model is in two levels ,the first is the street and the second is the guild and sewers.

There are many beggars on these streets.

All of the buildings have a detailed interior

This building is the largest and contains a store that sells stolen goods and upstairs is where a criminal who is being pursued by the guards lives.
Posted Image

The smaller building is a small taveren.
Posted Image

A thief can be seen stealing from a trade cart.
Posted Image

The surface level comes off to make looking at the guild easier.

pictures of the guild and sewers
The Theives guild has a small temple inside and a few targets for weapons practice.

The Dark Sewer is the only entrance to the guild. The smell and Rats tend to keep wanderers away.

Thank you for looking and larger images can be found HERE
This model took me 5 hours of work and searching for pieces but i think it was worth it.

:thumbup: Very good, of course I got to wonder about the archery range it looks like some one is going to hit by a stray bolt.

Neat! We don't see too many creations that explore this side of medieval cities. The buildings' exteriors seem a bit plain to me, but I'm sure that's something that can improve if you continue to build in the theme.

Hello!

Very nice and detailed interior again. :classic: My favourite detail is on the outside, however this time. It's the floatsam in the sewer which gives the environment around the creation a really realistic look. :classic:

Cheers,

It's a good way to keep out wannabee theives , also you should knock first :classic:

thank you
I don't have too much experience with medievil city buildings.
After i finished the sewer section of this Moc i started to run out of brown 6x1 and 4x1 tiles and grey bricks , this made building the small taveren somewhat harder.

I'm happy with the white building but i really need to decorate the corners in some way or add some more damage to the outside maybe?

At first i was miffed by the mix of Dark grey and DBley in the floor, but then I realized it was intentional. Veeerrry nice!

What's up with the crazy beggar's arm?

Interesting MOC.  I like the idea of a thief haven.  Lots of details inside and out, but I think I like the street and wagon the best.  Nice job!

A neat MOC you've got here, Black Rabbit! The mix of colours work well with the ramshackle look of the place to nicely convey setting of a slum, and all the different thieve mini-figures are very cool. I think the 5 hours of work and pic-hunting was well worth it! :thumbup:

A nice build! There are a lot of details! The street looks nice with all those tiles on it. Like Sir Dillon said the exteriors are a bit plain, but the interiors are highly detailed! :thumbup:
I like your thievings guild as well. :classic:

Well they do go to the temple to worship a thief god so you aren't wrong.

Great slum district! I like the way you done the street, it looks real like a gravel. Also the details like the skeleton in the cantina or the ladder onto the roof enjoy me. Perfect work :thumbup:

But there is only one thing, you could do better. The comic-face driver of the coach looks not so good with the other dot-eyes, maybe you could change this?

Very cool man, very cool.

This is something I didn't really notice until I saw your setup but your hidden rooms have what might be perseived as low ceilings, but in reality compared to the minifig, theya re about the right size for a basement or standard room.  Becasue if the minifigs hands are up, they can almost touch the ceiling.

I have to give you props on that aspect becasue you fit more in a smaller space and it still looks good.

The outside is nice too with that lovely cobblestone path. :thumbup:
