Wow, this is going to be epic. I love the bridge. :sweet:
Are you counting the pieces while building this?
I wish I could but it´s to heavy for count every minute.
I try to weigh each chapter at the end.

Here is the start of chapter 3. The rapid river through the terrain

Oh wow, this is quite an awesome project and such a great thing to be able to watch the WIP. I'll be sure to keep checking in, thank you for posting these!  :thumbup:

By the way, I'll guess a hut/house will be going in that sandy area. Can't wait to see though.  :classic:

Well done! Nice WIP, seriously!

Just 1 question: where do you buy boxes of bricks, and how much money do you think your diorama will cost?

Thanks!

Thank you. All my Lego is bought on ebay. I love searching offers of mixed kilogram with special sets in it, based only on specific parts seen on the pictures. I know that green, brown and gray parts are highly recommended for this build so I bought the set 4998 two times today to increase my amount of usefull parts. One of them was complete and I could get it for 20€ and the other one not but must of the parts exist and without any number and/or name of the original set I was able to get it for 8€. For it´s fun.
The entire build would be very expensive based on the fact that gray, tan, brown and even green are more expensive than colours like blue, yellow, red and so on, Imho.

The last week was very busy to continue. My girlfriend was here. So I take only a few boxes of brown and plant parts and try to make trees. One of them is shown on the next picture and to compare a minifig stands next to him. I´m carpenter and I love trees and the original trees from TLG could not satisfy my idea of a nice tree. Not today and not as child.

One of the trees. Maybe I will enlarge the amount of leaves after all trees are done and I can see how many parts are left for it.

That´s a really good kick a** to continue my work  :laugh: :thumbup:  
I will try to up the third section later this evening, it´s half done.

Here are two new pictures for techniques I use.
The first isn´t special, but I try to use not important parts to push the ground and give it stability, like technic and rod bricks.
The other one is build with one of my favourite parts, the log brick. My two pirateships are made with them to give it a real looking plank aspect.
They are brilliant to build a round looking rod for tree trunks for example whitout using any one hinge. It´s a pity that there are only available in a huge amount in brown and gray (in all levels) and tan and only in 1 x 2 and 1 x 4.  :cry_sad:

Looks great so far. The Palisade Brick technique is very nice; I'll have to try that some time.

Looks like the terrain on this chapter won´t be done tonight, or very late.
So here is the up to date pic. I will brick on now.  :wink:

I was impatiently waiting for this update, now I can go to bed!  :wink: no seriously, as many here I'm really excited about this project and am quite curious about how you are progressing. Interesting techniques and all just very creative! BTW, are you planning to make beech trees? I think the grey log bricks should be excellent for that

I don´t have enough of them and gray would be realistic but in Lego it could look strange, what do you think?

Ok, after a change to my plan the missing rest from chapter three is done. Now the forth chapter (the back left corner) comes up to my mind and I will start with him on sunday I think.
I'm excited to the what you think of the rest of the terrain on chapter three.

Here it is.
the eagle eye view

the level up in detail

and the total of all three chapters

and a detail from the second bridge. Another way to do the bridge arch ;)

Btw all the ideas for the sand place in chapter three are wrong :tongue:  :sweet:
But I have to say thank you for all the guess anyway  :thumbup: :thumbup:  

And thank you all for all the positive feedback.

Nice. Bridge arch technique is especially nice. Why have I never thought of that?

Amazing! The landscape is developing quite nicely (special mention to those two rock formations). And that bridge is very cleverly done (love the detailing). Can't wait to see more. :sweet:

Looking good mate, the landscape is starting to have a natural feel now and both bridges are looking nice. Good choice on using normal studded water, makes a refreshing change. I'm just about to start part 3 of my myths &legends series, so I will probably do it in sections like yours as it's a much easier way to work on. Keep the updates coming!
