Just a bit North of the A.T.C. watchtower the new sawmill has been built. Near a dense forest to have a nice supply of trees.
The sawmill is responsible for a large part of the logs and plank production in Avalonia. And there is never enough construction material in Avalonia! Some lord of a distant land should come up with a quarry to accompany the sawmill in the construction material production. The A.T.C. lands in Avalonia lack stone layers and minerals!

Overview. :classic:

Posted Image
Front view. The mill is 73cm in height.

Posted Image
The stairs which give access to the next level, and a cart with new planks. A mill operator greets the man.

Posted Image
A lumberjacker and his son delivering a log at the mill, while a hunter passes by on his way to the forest.
The sign should say "A.T.C. Sawmill", but I was too lazy to make a whole sticker for it. :tongue:

Posted Image
The mill entrance seen from the minifig eye.

Posted Image
The storage room upstairs in the mill. Supplies for the two mill operators and more.

Posted Image
The wooden cogs of the saw mechanism, and saw at the main floor. A log is about to get cut into several planks!

Posted Image
One of the walkways, just for sightseeing though as the stairs are on the other side. :laugh:

Thanks for watching guys! Cheers to all of you as I celebrate this huge project with a cold beer now. :sweet:

Looks absolutely lovely Blackmoor! The ATC is expanding it's reach.

You always choose a "rare" colorscheme and the color combination on this one is absolutely stunning. Dark green!  :wub:
The scale, design, and details are spectacular, I don't know if there's more to say than that. Some great torsos on the minifigs as well, I especially like the one on the kid with the forestman hat.

Only suggestion is to clean your pieces, some are really dirty!

The shape of the windmill is perfect and the interior has been done brilliantly.  I keep looking over the photos because there is so much that is beautiful in this one model.

The shape, interior and surroundings of this mill are perfect! This is a very good MOC :thumbup: . The fact that you actually added the sawing mechanisms makes this mill stand out for me. Avalonia sure got some good builders.

Nice work Captain Blackmoor! Lovely dark green colour scheme and great sense of scale. The cogs and saw mechanism add that extra wow factor. Keep up the good work!  :thumbup:

Amazing piece of work Captain, very inspiring!
I think you should close the back though, it might get drafty inside.  :grin:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Truely an excellent build Captain! It really does look impressive, with great detail, great color and a playability factor. This is one of my favourite builds from Avalonia, you have tryed a building that itsn't easy to make, and done it on a large detailed impressive scale. Excellent work!

Wonderfully detailed work, Captain Blackmoor!  :classic: I love the dark green and white colours, and the shaping of the windmill is beautifully done. The interior is just the icing on the cake! Great stuff.  :thumbup:
