Hi!

Me again. So for spamming so many topics, but I am just hyperactive in building LEGO these days. I know the Embassy challenge is over, but I was no Guild member at that time and I wish to add my own Embassy to Historica. I would love to place this Embassy in a nice town or even the capital of Mitgardia! I hope I find a Lord who accepts this design and opens his land to my builders.

The building is great! I think it'd be complimented with a small (3-stud extra in each direction?) garden and surround. With maybe a pair of guards.

Nice little build.  Looks like you had several interesting ideas and details here.  I like the interesting roof shape, but I am not so sure about the stripes.  One of the things about the embassy challenge was we were trying to meld our style of building with the environment of the place we were building.  Mitgardia is cold and snow covered, so I am thinking you may need to get some snow up on that roof!

Well yeah, I used this build as an excuse to try some different ideas. You can see for example that the two ends of the roof are built differently. This little build is sort of a study for myself on how some things work and look like. I need to see if I have the bricks to make a little surrounding and some snow on the roof. It's frustrating that I have to tear down things to build. F.y.i.: I had to sacrifice my MMV for MOC-ing.

That is the nature of the game!  MMV is such a great set for parts though.  I did notice a lot of different techniques.  I haven't tried anything in the snow either, but then again my embassy was in Nocturnus.

That's a nice creation, I really like the roof and the woodwork. But it could indeed use some surroundings. That always adds a lot to a creation! :wink:
