[COR-FB] A Day Trip to the Interior

Recommended Posts

Based on a tip from his new Onondaga friends, Captain Brickleton and a squad of the 18th Hussars head inland into the interior of Lacryma in search of a waterfall that rains gold. At least that's how the Onondaga describe it.

Deciding that if the waterfall really rained gold the riches would be too good to pass up, Captain Brickleton plans a day trip on horseback. As the group passes over a rickety bridge on foot, they reach the end of the Elizabethville road and the beginning of the Onondaga single-track that preceded it.

That’s a really cool little bridge; although, I’m not sure I’d want to lead a horse over it! Bravo Captain Brickleton! Great color scheme, I love the use of the yellow and orange in the landscape.

That white stripe going through the rocks is really neat, and I love the yellow and orange on the ground.  The tree colors complement the scene well, although the trunks seem a little thick and column-like.  Nice bridge techinque!

Thanks! I was going for a quartz vein or something like that in the rocks. Agreed re: tree trunk thickness - think 1x1 round white/gray bricks and plates would look better? Went with the columnar rounds instead of smooth ones simply because I have more of the striped ones from the Diagon Alley set I parted out a while ago... smooth would have been better.

Yeah, risky business taking a horse across a slat bridge. Yikes! I keep coming back to the bright orange color on the ground because I don't have any dark orange plates :pir-tongue:

I normally rush through these builds in a single sitting so that I can put my LEGOs away before 9MO is on the prowl in the morning. She especially loves the taste of round plates! Some other tweaks I think would make this build better are thinner/more stylized tree trunks and leaves in the water and on the rocks. May revisit if I have a chance over the next few days

I like it. Nice and interesting scenario in an autumn landscape. The bridge is a highlight.
