The Honey Bee Tree in the Faerie Forest! Home to some of the world's sweetest honey and happiest bears. Not only is it an important source of honey, but it is also a Forestmen trading outpost. The Keeper of Bees is also a ferocious ally. Many cities have been captured after a couple of these were unloaded from catapults, to say nothing of the charging bears on the battle field.

This was made for both the Guild of Historica and to fill in some of the gaps in a collaboration coming to a BrickFair soon ;)

Honey! The joyful bee keeper of the Faerie Forest. He is the tamer of bears and harvester of honey. He does all he can to make the lives of the forestmen on the Mystic Isles just a little bit sweeter.

The Faerie Forest is nearing its completion, stay tuned! :D

P.S. Sean's actually been learning to be a bee keeper for more than a year now, and we bought our first personal hive about a week ago :) Yay us... Swing by some time for some honey!

Excellent as usual! Great parts usage for the Hives and the yellow window shutters work perfectly here too. I also like the use of the gladiator helm on Hagrids body, it really works well. Nice addition to your growing land!

Well executed as always. A medieval bee keeper suit and a Winnie the Pooh reference in the same vig.

I knew those pen pieces would be useful! (See this thread for proof.) You beat me to it. Hopefully I can get some for my next build, which may take some time.

A lot of people claim that great minds think alike, but the truth is great minds think differently. I didn't see those pieces as beehives, but as something else (not gonna tell). Still, yours is in inspired parts use.

I believe the hives in the tree are this piece.

The ones on the boxes are this piece.

Lovely scene as always  :sweet:

After seeing you use pen pieces in interesting ways I was looking at them yesterday and saw this yellow piece. Thank you gedren for posting a link to them. I was going to ask how you aquired your beads! Its a shame bricklink doesn't list so many of the beads/pen pieces.

Great details and ideas, yet again.  As everyone else has said, the beehives, honeycombs and beekeeper masks look great!  Excellent work!
