    [WIP] Winter Diorama - Update #3 Mountain trail

    Looks great! Your videos are fun to watch, and informative. Thanks for sharing these! I actually like the look of the snow cornice. Overall it looks really good. Maybe up close you can see gaps but I think anybody other than yourself looking at it will just see nice snow on the mountain.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I always thought that a sweets shoppe would be a sensible addition but I can’t see that following on from the gingerbread house. We don’t have any indoor eating establishments in the winter village yet, so my bet is also on a cafe, or hopefully something more akin to a tavern. Whatever it is, I am very much looking forward to it :-)

    Winter Wonderland 2019

    @JeremyJoy, your village is gorgeous! I love the pedestrian bridge over the railway, and the way the railway winds around and through the village. There are so many nice details. I would love to see more pictures. Your video is really enjoyable to watch too, great videoing skills and perfect choice of music. Thanks for sharing 😊.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Ooh it’s exciting! I’m about to sleep (it’s 11pm here in Oz), but I’ll probably wake up in the night, then I’ll check. I always wake uo when I’m excited or nervous about something. I have moved my instagram icon on my phone as a reminder to check Brickset first. I much prefer to see the official reveal without having glimpsed leaked pictures. I find that more enjoyable than grainy half pictures with questions unanswered!! I like the idea of a bookstore and really hope it is a beautiful old-style building with lots of character.
  5. Congratulations! And good luck!! I supported it almost 2 years ago I think, and so happy to see it reach 10,000 supporters. The climate has changed a bit for bigger projects and fingers crossed it gets approved!

    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).

    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.
