so, to kick off my village, I started with the Blacksmith, one of the most essential things to all villages and towns, he makes weapons,and tools, he repairs broken objects and a great many other things

I would have thought the most essential building of every town and village would be a tavern, especially in Mitgardia  :tongue:

Looking good so far, the trans red bar and holder is a great idea for the red hot metal ready to be smithed.  It's kinda hard to not associate everything Mitgardian with Skyrim but, this blacksmiths does remind me of one.  If you plan on adding more things to the smith area, I've seen a cool wetstone somewhere and you could do a workbench too with a piece of armour on or a finished set of armour on display or something, I'm sure you've got plenty of ideas.  The forge fire looks good I think the anvil is a bit big though.  The house is coming along nicely, I do like that fireplace and the axe above the mantel and ooo pretty lights  :laugh:

The standard is pretty cool but I think the axe needs reworked.

I look forward to seeing it completed perhaps we can sell some of your fine armour and weapons in Samrd'dha :thumbup:

Thanks! I actually just put in the workbench and whet-stone you were talking about, so those where great ideas, but, what's wrong with the axe?

Ha! Finally someone else that also uses cheese slopes for roof building! I'm curious, how yours will look like in the end!
The current version is a bit too flat in my opinion but maybe thats just because I like them a bit steeper. But: I definitely like the fireplace - great idea!
(I'm currently working on my own town (also cheese slope roofs) but i think that i will have to build everything apart. Still have too few of them (~3K) Expensive, expensive ;) )

Best regards, looking forward to the finished blacksmith and your other planned houses (is there a list of what you are going to build? Just curious..)

I have several hundred dollars to spend and I'm afraid those white cheese slopes will rob me blind, of and for the buildings, all on this map.

To me it looks a bit styalised, it's just my personal taste but I think something more like this would look good.  If the handle were slightly wider and the blades have more of a curve it would look nicer and maybe a spike on top too.  Just an idea but if you're happy with the current design it's fine.

Done.

Or something like the one above the mantle.

Thank you, very much, I'm hoping to start a overall theme for my village with this.
Any advice, criticism? If so, I'd very much like to hear it.

Are you going to be able to finish that roof? You could probably achieve a very similar look with a lot less parts.

You know, it's not a bad MOC you have there. But your photography leaves much to ask for, it's out of focus and lacks clean background. If you improve your pictures, your MOCs will looks much nicer too.

I agree with beerbeard, but if you have that amount of cheese slopes than it does create a cool look. I myself dont have that much cheese so I like to use them on different things. Some ideas are very original! Like the use of a red lightsaber as hot metal and the big oven. Looking forward to THE completed Moc, but etzel is right, better pictures really improve a moc, as strange as it might seem.

The houses will be varying styles, cheese for colonists, planks for the Norse, slate for the dwarves, and thatch for the druids and hobbits. I am currently also in the process of getting a tripod, as my hands are only steady when holding a firearm.

Looking good but can't wait to see it in completed form!
