    Wow, this is simply beautiful and so clever. I love the inverted corner and the fact that despite that there is still so much room on the inside. I really like sweeping staircase and reception rooms, the awnings over the door and window at ground level and that lovely round tower, as well as the overall look and all those cosy, welcoming bedrooms.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I remember seeing one as well and I think it was on Instagram. However I’ve just searched through all the people I follow and all posts with the tag #31097 and I can’t see it...

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The mini gingerbread house that was a GWP three years ago was so popular that I think it is a very safe bet by Lego to do a full size gingerbread house. It would work very well on its own as a stand-alone decoration. I hear you on wishing for a proper village building, I do too, but I am still pleased with the idea of a gingerbread house and I don’t think I’ll have any trouble working it into my village, except for that whole issue of space (or lack thereof).

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I believe @LegoDW is just referring to the fact they just purchased the carousel and will add it to their winter village display this year.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think a gingerbread house would be perfect for the Winter Village, being a part of Christmas, and the winter village being synonymous with Christmas for those who celebrate it. Those who prefer realism could always style it as a tourist attraction. I like a bit of fantasy in my village so I would love to site a gingerbread house in a bit of forest, with a ‘friendly’ looking old lady living in it.... i look forward to this year’s set, whatever it is. I agree, a village hall would be excellent and would make for a wonderful 10th anniversary special set - something that brings the whole community together!

    Winter Village 2018 Full Diorama

    I absolutely adore your winter village and I have pored over the many wonderful details in your flickr albums many times over the years. I would love to see it in person but that is unlikely to happen since I live in Australia!! it is a true work of art. Magnificent work on every level.

    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC entry thread

    Thanks Cop Mike for hosting this again! Santa is actually an Elven dragon queen who flies through the wintry skies and drops gifts down chimneys. The magical heat radiating from her dragon keeps the frosty night air at bay. She also delivers parcels of food to the forest animals.

    White Base Plates

    The white baseplates are fairly expensive. I use the 16x16 plates which I have ordered from Bricks ‘n’ Pieces, which work out cheaper. Design number 91405. You can then also use them for building up terrain underneath.

    Thank you! So I should have searched for claws plural. Definitely nice parts usage there!

    Winter Village Cottage recolor. Best cheapest color?

    Tan would look good and hopefully not be too expensive? And you could change the door and window frames to be the cheaper reddish brown colour. It has been done before, though this one still has the green windows: Whatever you decide, it would be interesting to hear what you decide on and to see the recoloured version.

    Hogwarts Express Micro

    What is that part used to create the mountains? ( I looked up claw elements on bricklink and couldn’t see anything resembling them) Love this build. Love the mountains and the smoke.
