My teammate is Simon S. (Burrli Burri). Each of us built two modules aproximately 16x16 that contain sections of an Imperial Fort. The modules can be rearranged into many different compositions and the fort has many neat features: prison cage, modular house, working cannons, hidden treasure chests, working doors, and plenty of Imperial soldiers and pirate rogues.

Because each 'set' comes with 2 modules, with one set you would be able to rearrange it into 2 different patterns. But if you had both sets, you could rearrange the 4 modules into 24 different patterns, or have two separate forts!

I really like the parts of the fortress wall that aren't square. Excellent geometry.

Great contest entries!

It really shows you have been synchronizing your designs by the very uniform look of both of your entries.

I love the details, I love how the fortress comes in specials shapes (making it not a dull square), ...

Thanks! We wanted to make sure to implement a couple off the grid wall sections, for historical accuracy and for the 'cool' factor Posted Image

Very cool, so much detail! Again, the symmetry is fantastic for two separate builders.

That's some though competition, well-played you two,
It would be cool to actually see all of the modules connected some time Posted Image .
Good luck Posted Image .

Thank you Sebeus! We tried photoshopping the two pictures, so that all 4 modules would be in a row, but my photoshopping skills were too bad... It's also difficult because you can't edit a one coloured background (looks totally ugly with the trans clear water, which then would be way too dark in comparison to the background).

Two very nice MOC's and great consistency between them but from the perspective of the rules which state that you're designing sets that Lego might produce I would have to question whether the builds would pass the technical review that all actual Lego sets have to go through?

The disjoint clear plates to represent water definitely wouldn't pass review.
The rock design might just pass review but the instructions are going to be tricky!

That is a very well thought design and you have really pushed the modularity aspect to the extreme.
I’m not sure LEGO would be willing to use such advanced building techniques on an official set but I’m very impressed by your rock work techniques.

Also, congrats on being the first team to have posted an entry in this tough challenge!

Thanks, the unattached water probably wouldn't be in a 'real' set, but that could be easily removed. The rock are actually fairly simple, as only individual slopes are SNOT, they are attached by headlight bricks mostly Posted Image

Thank you, we figured modular sets are usually a bit more advanced than LEGO's general set designs.
