Finally I have finished my first real MOC. All that I have been building so far were made out of spare parts just to keep me busy. I've started this MOC in January. Out of financial reasons it took me until today to collect all bricks needed for this MOC. First I had no idea for what I want to "use" this house, but than I've joined Avalonia and seen the Albion: the capital city of Avalonia thread. I've seen that building No. 12 happens to have the same "L" shape, so I've decided to dedicate this build to Albion.
This House serves as a Barrack for the city guard. Barrack in the meaning, that the Guards off duty live and rest here. No training or drills are held in here. This MOC is pretty much based on Derfel's guide, but I added few little ideas myself. For example I made it modular. Later on I will add interiors.
You might wonder why the tooth pieces on the wall alternate red-white-green. The reason for this is simple. I have to get the maximum out of such MOC-es regarding "usefulness". I will take this House to LEGO exhibitions and meetings here in Hungary and our Flag is made of red, white, green stripes.
You might find it interesting that I made an approximate brick count and I used ~3300 bricks for this build.
Enough talking. Here are the pics:
I hope you like it :)
