In the city of lord Jakon Ritight of Konogourd, Mitgardia, is Konolar thoux, an Avalonian embassy.

Posted Image

This embassy is the home to an Avalonian family with one child and 2 gaurds. It is a trading house and many Mitgardians (and the few Avalonians) from the area come for some of the finest Avalonian goods available in Mitgardia.

apologies for the bad image quality, it was a rushed job as I only just unpacked the LEGO (and went on a building spree) :sweet: will photoshop images eventually, just making sure its up on time - thanks to my friend Sean for helping lay the snow.

Looks really good! It has a real classic castle style to it and I like that a lot!

The snow on the roofs are really well done, looks like the snow have melted a bit, only leaving some snow on top of the roofs!

Fun to see the kids play in the snow!  :laugh:

I like this building. It looks a little like a church: the tower, and the broad hall. Very nice work!

Good work m'boy!

I like the half timber portions, the yellow and dk brown is pretty cool together.

I also like what you did with the snow.

The gray on the bottom though does look a little bland.  I see there is some variety in there, but it could use a little more.  I understand you said it was a rush job, but it certainly still looks pretty polished!

Overall, another good design by you.  You remind me of MikeyB, a fast riser and a quick leaner!

This is what I like! :thumbup:
The embassy itself looks great, nice transitions between stone and woodwork, the yellow works very well in here.
Perhaps the bright red looks a bit too 'clean' as Mitgardia is a harsh region for buildings. And some small amounts of foliage would break up the snow nicely.

But I guess the best of all is, I had a good laugh about the dwarf and his catapult, and the XL (!) barrel of ale.
Ale is delicious, especially Avalonian Dwarven Ale, especially in XL barrels! :wub:

Great stuff!

Really well done.

And the Snowball fight is instant fav.  :iamded_lol: :laugh:

Indeed the snow on the roofs is very well done! And the hit by a snowball face is a nice touch! Also the yellow and brown turned out great!

Great work, snowball fight is great, colour scheme is interesting, not your standard avalonian but certainly a classic castle feel, infact the colour scheme is of a nocturnus orientation.  Great snow work too.  :thumbup:

Thank you all for your kind comments!

@Zcerberus: I wasn't to sure about the stone walls but it looks much better in reality as whiile it doesn't stand out much in the photos the stone is made up of a mixture of new and old bricks which look pretty cool.
@Captain Blakmoor: I just bought the roof tiles (two packs) as i didn't have any and the still look extreamly new. I'll try to improve it in the future. as for for shrubbery I only have 6x5 leafs and seaweed parts and i found they didn't look the best on the snow.
Sorry about the index, i haven't much time now that the school year has started and my new internet is quite limited.
Once again thanks and I'm glad you liked it!

I like all that you've done with the snow.  The snow on the roof has a nice 3-Dness to it, and the snowballed face is brilliant.  I really like the brown and yellow floor, both for the color use and the paneling design.  Nice MOC!

Excellent work, Legonardo!
I, like everyone, have noticed your clever snow design! Your embassy also conveys our guild's overall feel, but transported to another locale, which is exactly the point of this challenge. You do your guild proud!
