    This is really nice.  I love the way you did the base.  That little pond is neat.  The stone work and roof on the cottage really stand out to me, the stone looks great the way some of the bricks are crooked, looks real.  The chimney is layered well.  The little brown mushrooms are fantastic.  The vegetation on the roof is a great detail.  Nice bird nest in the tree too.

    This is such a wonderful build, and certainly idyllic!  Lovely house, and all the details around it.  The path is nice, great base and foliage, and as already noted those are some wonderful deer!  NPU with the wands throughout, those little brown mushrooms, things like the paintbrushes used in the timber framing of the house - all so delightful!  :wub:

    That's genuinely incredible. How have you managed to make deer so recognisable with such a small footprint? And is that a bird's nest I spy in the tree? Love it.

    That's beautiful! I love the timber framing on the house and the design of the base!

    Thanks to all of you, glad you like the build :)

  2. Hi,

    Unsure if I'm posting this into the right category, but my build is kind of apocalyptic so it might fit the best in here.

    My build is highly inspired by malaysian artist Chong Fei Giap, I recommend to check out his illustrations . They are an amazing source for ideas if you plan to build some stuff which could also fit to the Ninjago City to name another inspiration.

    I've built the towers modular, four-side-viewable and as sturdy as i could, because i'm planing to bring them to the Skaerbaek Fanweekend, which is just around the corner.

    Hope you enjoy..



  3. Thanks, I'm glad that you like my version of the burrow!

    Keep up the good work! I will definitely look at it for inspiration.

    I'm interested in your version of it. The color is definitly about personal taste, probably a mix between grey and brown would look just right.

    This is superb! How long did it take to build all of this?

    About 4 months, while I tried to build about 3-4 hours a week.

    Amazing, simply amazing! Where is the MOC being exhibited?

    Exhibited it at ComicCon Germany, with quite a few LUG Buddies. It was great, combined Lego and several geeky stuff. Hope to get something done for the next year.

  4. Hi Eurobrickers,

    After the Harry Potter Vignettes you may have seen in the past few months, I'm now ready to present you my biggest MOC ever created: The iconic home of the Weasley family, in my case I focussed on the version in the second book. I used a Artwork featured in a "Magical places" book for inspiration. It's pretty close to the model used in the film.

    Ron: "It's not much, but it's home."

    ....Harry: "I think it's brilliant."


    A few more pictures could be found on my Flickr stream(following the link above), I try to take a few more, was bit in a hurry while the MOC is exhibited in the moment.

    Hope you like it,

    Regards Marcel

  5. Hi to all of you,

    I've been away from GoH for a while now, I still had an eye on the Guilds but just wanted to build various other stuff.

    I'm back with a small (not quick) free-build, with a more than lame titel since there may be dozens of Kaliphlin Outpost's :laugh: ...

    I've tried to incorporate a few new (for me) interesting techniques:

    26076988283_518364eabd_c.jpgKaliphlin Outpost

    I've recognized a thread listing up all the free-builds, should I do a post there?


  6. Very good work! I like the way you've made the harp in the first picture.

    Thanks! I just missed a way how to represent strings without cutting anything ;)

    So...while there are a few members following this thread, I want to share the final builds finishing the series:

    #027 - The great hall

    So, the series is finished, i hope you enjoyed it as I did building it!


  7. I like that you went small and you could technically display a lot together if you so chose to. I was thinking more favorite/most momentous scene in each movie and scale it out to fit a 32x32 baseplate per scene. So then I could have 8 dioramas (1 from each film) and have a nice display for LEGO shows our LUG does. We will see. But I will definitely look back at this for inspiration or ideas.

    Keep up the good work.

    I, of course, would love to see more HP! As you said, they might be good to display at events. Right now I dissamble them right after taking the Pic's but I already got plans to rebuild (and display) a updated, four-side viewable TOP 10 out of all builds...

    As usual there are a few more with my answer:

    #020 -(The)Fluffy awakens

    25378392203_d97aacb9ed_c.jpg#020 - (The) Fluffy awakens

  8. Wow, these are GREAT! I love the Wizard Chess one and the effect for the Invisibility Cloak is cool too!

    Thanks! The Invisible Cloak is probably my personal favourite one...

    Man I totally missed that Hogwarts Express vig on flickr! Now I'm glad that I've seen it here.

    I just want to say that I love what you're doing here. The Potterverse has become so huge over the years that it's impressive how you do your journey through it. All these vignettes are such excellent depictions of all the iconic scenes. Thank you for bringing back all these memories.

    Yepp, there are lot of memories...I removed the dust from 'The Philosopher's Stone' and found things written/drawn into the book about 15 years ago ;)...

    I got 5 new Vignettes to update this thread:

    #015 - Norwegian Ridgeback Norbert

    25207864283_10a4ea95cc_c.jpg#015 - Norwegian Ridgeback "Norbert"

    #019 - Brawl!

    25956521026_61e9a7c73d_c.jpg#019 Brawl!


  9. Thanks to all of you, nice to see that I can 'transport' what I planned while building the vignettes.

    As a word to the inspiration: I read the books, I saw the films (I like them (...a lot)), and I played several games on PC, Gameboy or similar in my "not so long ago" childhood. First book released when I was five years, read with it's more like having several views on scene's and places. I freakin enjoy the Book: Harry Potter - The Book of Magical Places.

    these are very cute indeed - i really like the bed-construction in #007.

    i was trying to built a "king-and-queen-sized" bed for a game of thrones room, but the build got bulky really easy.

    are you ok if copy some of your ideas for my bed? =)

    Of course, go for it! To be honest, I used four Flex Tube Leftovers to connect the bedposts in this inverted way. 3L bars should be a tad to long...Oh and my creations tend to fly apart pretty easy :grin:

    As a short update Vignette #008 - #010:

    #008 - Madame Hooch's first flying lesson

  10. Good evening Eurobricks Members,

    I want to present you my current project: I'm creating a series of Vignettes featuring the adventures of Harry Potter, hero of my youth. Right now, I plan to upload a Vignette (nearly) every day in March starting from the beginning of "The Philosopher's Stone" to whereever I might end with.

    Main goals of this series are presenting Vignettes with a high quality photography, showing various techniques and NPU's and following the rule: "Small but cool" or however you say in english :laugh:...

    So let me take you on a journey...

    "Curious indeed how these things happen. The wand chooses the wizard, remember... I think we must expect great things from you, Mr Potter... After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things — terrible, yes, but great."

    —Ron Weasley, to Harry Potter

    I hope you like my progress so far, daily updates on flickr, I will also update this startpost from time to time.

    Kind regards from Hogwarts,


  11. Hi,

    so here's my weekly freebuild:

    Located: E03 - Ertauq

    Tags: Exploration, Land vehicle


    - Measuring Ertauq -

    Collab with John Hannibal


    19453408668_6290307c51_t.jpg''Woooohhh, what a ride. These aren't the best shock absorbers Octan ever invented!''

    19634395032_f137de2868_t.jpg''Grrr, we came a few moments late, all speeders we're already lent. But I think we reached a good spot. Hop off!"

    19641446195_b0df2553bc_z.jpg deliver

    19453408668_6290307c51_t.jpg''Urrrghh, what is this instrument about?''

    19634395032_f137de2868_t.jpg''It's measuring the emissive gas and sends these informations to Dr. Long. She has the code to acess to this instrument from wherever she wants.''


    19634395032_f137de2868_t.jpg''That should be fine now. Let's get away from here.''

    19453408668_6290307c51_t.jpg'' *Cough* That's the sentence I waited for. Out of here''


    Hope you like it...

  12. Nice, that Micro-Hangar is my favourite part! Beside that, the floor-design with the inverted plate is creative. This could probably get improved with some pattern. Have to try it myself once ;)

    Btw: Is

    famous outside of Germany? Haha

  13. Thanks, to all of you :sweet:...

    I really like the clean and minimalist look of the landscape. There are plenty of awesome little details all over this build, too.

    I really luv this build, clean with a stunning scenery and the building stands out perfectly.

    Even if it's space/Sci-Fi we're now building for, I didn't build that crazy so far. I think I won't use yellow or red landscape, but I also own some of these lavender leaves, I probably HAVE to use in one of the next builds...

  14. Hi Eurobricker's,

    my weekly free build:

    Loctated: F02 - Lesser Drigo

    Tags: Building, Civil, Vehicle, Land/Water Vehicle

    ~ Sample Delivery on Lesser Drigo ~


    // Outpost owned by Octan Coop.; Located in the arid, volcanic area's of Lesser Drigo.//


    19364094106_7db913ca6e_t.jpg''Oh, Hi! Welcome to our new Octan Base here on Lesser Drigo!"

    19147893172_f88346283b_t.jpg"Yeesh, this is what I'd call an arid planet. I won't be surprised if you don't get many guests around here."

    19364094106_7db913ca6e_t.jpg "To the contrary, you're the second one today! So, Sir, should I refuel your vehicle?"

    19147893172_f88346283b_t.jpg"Oh, I would appreciate that very much! My starship is located just a few meters west. Make sure to refuel it with 'B.I.E.R.'! That's the only juice my ship'll take!


    19364094106_7db913ca6e_t.jpg *thinks for a second* ''I never heard of 'B.I.E.R.', hopefully his ship will take our 'Nitro Oc.' for extra mph.''


    19394291261_016160b373_t.jpg ''Glad to see you, marcu!"

    19147893172_f88346283b_t.jpg "Hi, ummm... I didn't expected you here Doctor Long. But, by the way, it seems you've gotten a nice tan since we met the last."

    19394291261_016160b373_t.jpg"I had to leave my laboratory for an inspection of this new outpost. You wouldn't believe how much sabotage she's suffered already. If only MANTIS could understand that everything would run so much smoother under Octan control. So here I am. Do you have the samples from Jurin II? Since we're both here, I can collect and catalog them personally."

    19147893172_f88346283b_t.jpg"I do! Here they are..."

    19394291261_016160b373_t.jpg"Wow, that is just amazin.... I mean... *ahem* Upon cursory glance, this specimen does appear quite interesting. Certainly worthy of further observation in our geology labs..."


    Additional Picture (credits to Patrick Massey, who teached me about the sense of figless pictures :thumbup: ):



    I hope you like my build for this week. I invested a lot of time in taking and gimping picture's to present some nice stuff.(Sigfig Picture for every character :wacko: )... Last week i forgot to mention Danny Longlegs who corrected all my dialogues, like this week. I appreciate that so much, it improves my english and i get into the ''slang''/spoken language we definitly do not learn at school :laugh: ...

    Regards, marcu
