GoH 10 C: Mitgardian Village of Skaaldoogh

Recommended Posts

Viking Village (3)

In western Mitgardia, along the coast, lies the small village of Skaaldoogh. Looking for alliances for his town of Dalig Ulv Wyndor arrived to speak with the jarl.

A raiding party had just returned from an expedition into Avalonia. And while Wyndor could not condone attacks on Mitgardia's neighbors he couldn't deny that the festive spirit was contagious.

The warriors of Skaaldoogh had brought back much loot from the elves.

But despite the victory the blacksmiths were already hard at work preparing for the next expedition.

Wyndor hoped to convince them that it should be in defense of Mitgardia against the increasing threat from the minotaurs.

OoC: I have been wanting to build this MOC for about 2 years now. I tried to combine a bunch of techniques that I've been working on into one massive village layout. It's built on 4 64x64 baseplates which can come apart for transport. The water and boat move and the blacksmith forge lights up. Thanks for looking!

Wonderful build.  I really like the landscaping.  The trees and plants look great in addition to the rockwork.  The buildings have nice designs.  That is a big Mitgardian army.

The motion!!  I cannot get over how smooth and beautiful the slight motion of the ship is.  How high up is the base to accommodate whatever gears and stuff you had to use?  Do you happen to have any shots of what the inner works there look like?  How long did it take you to work that out?

As you can tell, I'm really floored by the motion. :laugh:  As for the rest... it's a viking village, of course it's awesome!  The shield roof, the trees, the round tower--great techniques for each of these, overall a really neat build, great stuff.

Glad you like it so much! Here's a shot of what's under the water:

It's a simple net/wave technique on top of rotating 1x2 liftarms.

And this video shows you the movement of the boat:

Feel free to borrow the techniques and make them better! I'd love to see your amazing pirate MOCs fitted with something like this.

I definitely want to try this sort of thing someday... this is a build I'll come back to to see how it's done! :grin:

The way the ship rolls and pitches is the icing on the cake to this beautiful build, I love how true it is to the theme, I haven't seen such an ironically and truly Scandinavian diorama in a long time! Those buildings are sweet. You have a lot of brown shields, which looks lovely. And the presentation also is great!

This is a great Mitgardian Village and ship! A beautiful diorama with great buildings and a great selection of minifigures. The waves effect is very well done I've never seen anything like it before. :pir-stareyes:
