The Town Musicians of Bremen.

It's an old fairy tale and quite unknown outside of Germany. But it has always been one of my favorites. It's about about working together to reach a common goal.
Is it really that unknown? I come from the Southwestern United States, and it's actually fairly well known here. Did a play on it in first grade, actually.

Oh well Ithought it was quite unknown... Appears I might be mistaken!

Chapter 10


The mines are dark, really dark.

And dwarfs are scary, with their pick axes and shovels.

It’s hard to see where you are going.

Suddenly we see a bright light.

It’s coming from the crystal disguised as a tiny candle.

It's burning bright enough to illuminate the entire work space of the dwarfs.

I grabbed the crystal and we ran as fast as we could.

Leaving the dwarfs in complete darkness.

Too bad we didn't know that dwarfs have excellent night vision…

Six of them jumped in mine carts and had a seventh dwarf push them towards us!

They were actually gaining in on us until Alice threw away the peel of her banana.

The carts rolled over the peel without effort.

Luckily the dwarf pushing the carts slipped on it and we managed to escape.

I'd like to introduce you all to the 7 dwarfs:

Glad you liked it! Originally I didn't have the carts and the banana in my story but it was too hard to make 8 characters with non movable legs look like they were running so I came up with the mining carts and the banana followed after that.

This last chapter was a awful to photograph. Must be because of the dark colors.

Thanks! Glad you like them. For most of the characters I instantly knew what I wanted them to look like. The dwarfs are most likely the characters I assembled, took apart and reassembled the most. I wanted each one of them to have a personality quirk which would reflect their names.

Thanks! Each one of the dwarfs represents one of the seven deadly sins:

Greedy - Greed
Toury - Envy (a bit a stretch, but what the heck)
Doc - Wrath
Clumsy - Sloth
Druggy - Lust
Chef - Gluttony
Draggy - Pride

Hahaha, don't be so sure. We're a bizarre mix of backwoods and modern where I live.

These really are fantastic. I really like how you manage to arrange the minifigures on all of these creations. :thumbup:

Chapter 11


Apprentice used some kind of Hocus Pocus to temporarily blind the dwarfs so they couldn’t follow us.

Since we nearly got caught Pinocchio suggested to lay low for a while.

So we are not travelling by road.  

We shall travel the forest to our next destination.

My godmothers raised me in the forest, so I know this place by heart!

Suddenly Alice stops and points at a shimmering between the bushes.

She found an old oil lamp on the ground.

Apprentice nearly had a nervous breakdown when Alice wanted to rub the dirt of the lamp.

She snatched away the lamp claiming that where she comes from, such lamps contain magic...

Any guesses on the Apprentices true identity?

Thanks! Adding the vines was a last minute decision, but I'm glad I did it!


They look great, and are integral to the original story. In that they should be rose vines, and I believe the Aurora character is more classically known as Briar Rose?

In the original Grimm story the princess is named Briar Rose. In the Disney version they named her Aurora, when she goes into hiding with her Fairy Godmothers they rename her to Briar Rose. I chose Aurora cause it goes along nicely with Alice.
