I made A'tuin using primarily pieces from the Ferocious Creatures (5868) set with only a few supplemental green pieces.

Awesome first MOC posted!
The proportion are great, and I like your brick-built elephants (your design?). Is the mountain the place where the gods live?
Pretty clever the use of the green hinge parts for the "toes" of your turtle.
I see you're new, why don't you go present yourself in the dedicated topic?
Hope to see other discworld MOCs, have fun here!
And! don't! pay! attention! to the numerous "!!!!!!!" in my posts! I can sometimes be full of enthusiasm =)

The elephants were my own design. I built them after I had completed the turtle, so my biggest challenge was building small enough elephants.

May I also commend you on getting the geography absolutely correct! The only thing I might change would be to put in a bit of tan rimwards of the Circle Sea to represent the Klatchian Desert.
Once again, excellent job! I look forward to more Discworld MOCs!

It's an absolutely amazing creation of this series! I always love to see other Science Fiction and fantasy worlds being created in bricks.
It's a pleasure to look at! Thanks for sharing.
See you around,

I'm a big fan of Sir Pratchett's work and this does it a incredible justice! You have a superb eye for making microscale models; all the lines in the elephants, turtle and the world are natural and realistic despite their small size! You have picked the perfect bricks/color choices for every single stud it seems and some incredibly subtle yet effective techniques add up to an amazing build over all! A+++
I hope you do more of these!

I am sorry to say, that even in the construction, the Great A'Tuin's sex still remains unknown.

As for the inclusion of features like UU, I think the scale of this model is much too small to do anything other than a gray tile for Ankh-Morpork. However, given the strength of this model, I would be very interested to see how you might handle a micro-scale AM as per the map at the front of Night Watch.
