Recommended Posts

We'll finally start with the last of the challenges by celebrating the Guilds of Historica's anniversary properly. We have three categories that fit the Guild's history perfectly. And because it's all about creativity in building and storytelling we have a long time frame to give Guildies plenty of time to build to show the world that Historica truly is "The castle MOCers paradise"!

We also have the largest prize pool to date. Sure it's about worldbuilding, but it's always a nice incentive. So behold and feast your eyes:

So without further ado:

GoH 10 A: Life in Cedrica

Built a part of Historica's capital on a 32x32 base "Ninjago City" style. So make sure it has a part of water, connector bricks at the right spots and of course interiors! It can be a rural part, fortified barracks, harbor, etc. It can even be 2x 16x32. For example:

1st Prize: 31120 +Awesome printed commemorative bricks and some goodies.
2nd Prize: 71735 +Awesome printed commemorative bricks and some goodies.


Goh 10 B: Old but Gold

Pick one of your previous Guild mocs and rebuild it showing the progress we Guildies made as lego builders over the years. It must be clear that it's a similar setting or building!

For example:

Old watchtower next to a river compared to a newer version:

2nd Prize: 76205 +Awesome printed commemorative bricks and some goodies.

Just... go... nuts! It can be small and glorious or big and impressive. Just make sure it tells a solid story about your sigfig!
 

1st Prize: 21325 +Awesome printed commemorative bricks and some goodies.
2nd Prize: 71746 +Awesome printed commemorative bricks and some goodies.

Oooh, here it is!! I'm liking the Old but Gold category in particular. And what a prize pool! :pir-stareyes:

Three questions to further flesh out the rules:

  • Do entries have to be completely new, or can you finish WIPs that you started before August 1?
  • Can you post multiple entries for the same category? 
  • Are digital entries allowed?

Awesome, great to have so much time as for me that will definitely increase the likelihood of time for building an entry or two :wink: .

I have a question too:

For the « Old but Gold » contest…

can we change the scale of the Moc? A vignette becoming a 32x32 baseplate is allowed?

Math is not my strong point, but it seems to me that the example builds given in the prompt increased the size of the footprint from one to the next (I didn't count, but just eyeballed it...). I would say, go nuts. Make it bigger, more detailed, more elaborate and fancy in every way. Because why not? It's a celebration!

  • Anything that hasn't been shown online before the start of this contest can be used. I have a few wips lying around, never posted, that could serve as base or inspiration for any of the categories.
  • Yes, though focusing on making something for each categorie might be smarter if you want a better chance on winning any of the prizes.
  • Sure, no elements in weird colors allowed though!:sadnew:

Hi there!

I have another question:

GoH10a : Life in Cedrica - Is it ok if there’s a bit of overhang or should it fit perfectly in a 32x32 baseplate (roofs, trees, vegetation)

I don’t have any overhang at the moment but I prefer to ask before it happens.😉

Edited by Sympatik Brick
it happens!

For the Cedrica category, it would be great to have the "Cedrica modular standard" defined.
I've gotten questions from LUG friends who are thinking about building for this, and we are used to clear CB interface standards (e.g. Castonia 2.0 as displayed in Skaerbaek)

From photos on Flickr, I interpret the standard as:

  • 3 studs water (baseplate + dark green + trans-clear)
  • 3 studs walkway (2 bricks + plate at the interface) 
  • Technic brick at stud 10-11
  • Technic brick at stud 22-23, with a walkway on top (2 brick + plate high at the interface)
  • 9 studs water (baseplate + dark green + trans-clear)

Not a bad idea… except that people should have began their Moc already (mine is really advanced)

I guess it could be cool for you and your Lug friends to choose a standard… it could became a big diorama of Cedrica.

By the way. Where could I read more about Cedrica’s description. I don’t remember it should be a Venice-like city!?

A little overhang is allowed, as is shown in my examples and even in the Ninjago City sets. Keep in mind that it should be more on the back and front, because on the sides it would prevent it from being able to connect to another building.

Not much is written about Cedrica, that's why we are giving it attention now. I do find it funny that it's being compared to Venice. Plenty of old cities used to have canals as it was a perfect way of transport. Cities like Amsterdam and Utrecht for example here in The Netherlands. And those aren't located in the middle of the sea like Venice.

Oh, I love this, I'll definitely revisit an old build!

Have been quite inactive but checking for new challenges every now and a while, glad that I stumbled upon this :)

That seems to accord pretty well with the Ninjago City standard, though the water color is different there (black with trans-light blue on top, which is the color I would use, since I don’t have nearly the trans-clear collection to pull it off with that). I suspect that the amount of water in the back, whether 9 studs wide/deep or more, or less, is changeable, given that it is on the Ninjago City sets, even if they do line up with each other pretty well still. But three studs wide/deep of water on the front seems standard. The lower, water-level Ninjago walkway looks to be 4 studs wide, which is what I would go for myself. The height looks like 2 bricks plus 2 plates on top of the baseplate, though I would likely do 1 plate and 1 tile, given that I don’t like so many exposed studs.

I started as well! It also might be a good example of how little water you need to make sure it meets the "Ninjago City"(and now of course Cedrica City) standards.
