Capt Wolf

Post Mill, Puerto Desafio, Isla de Victoria

Recommended Posts

Another property for Puerto Desafio: a post mill to grind grain into flour. This will be licensed as a small factory.

When we first starting discussing the microbuild prizes from Challenge V, Captain Braunsfeld asked "you mean, like, no more than 8 pieces?" or something like that. So for this microbuild I decided to see if I could in fact make it with only 8 pieces. Alas, with the technic pin that holds on the sails, it uses 9 pieces. So close!

All C&C welcome!

You could have left out the cheese slope on the opposite- you don't see her either from this angle. 

So what else to say? I call this a perfect micro build because there's absolutely nothing you could have done better. It's instantly recognizable. Even the colourscheme is excellent in this scale.

Thank you very much! Looking back now, I could have left out the base. So technically the windmill itself is only 8 pieces.

Thanks! I think windmills are the forgotten factories for the BoBS time period.

Thanks! And I'm definitely curious to see what you could do with the "8 piece challenge"! :pir-grin:
