    Hello! Here I have built an 8 x 8 vig! Everything fits in the 8 x 8 base, except for about a stud on each side with the leaves, which is allowed. :) This is also my fourth CCCXV entry! It will be in the castle vignette category! (duh) ;) Pics: I am limited to three pics for a vig in the CCC, so that is all there is... :) C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    [MOC] Barrels Out Of Bond...

    Hello! This is my ninth of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... This is also my fifth CCCXV entry! It will be in the ye olde switcheroo category! So, about the build. I did skip a few chapters, but I wanted to build this for the CCC, so here it is. :) The final build size is 48 x 46, so it just fit in the size limitations. :) This is my second to last build for the CCC, and unfortunately, I just don't have time to do Beorn's House now, but I will most likely bring it to BFAL. :) It was a lot of fun to build, so I hope you enjoy! :D Pics: Main inspiration is Graham Gidman's wonderful Barrels scene rendition! :) C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    Hello! This is my second of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... This is also my second CCCXV entry! It will be in the small misc. category! So, about the build. This build is actually a redo of this chapter, as I wasn't content with my previous attempt being up to the quality of the rest of the builds. So, this build's size is 31 x 27, and I would estimate around 1000 pieces. It was a lot of fun to build, and I finished it 2 weeks ago, but I am just now posting it. I hope you enjoy! :D Pics: Pretty happy with this build, it took a week to build, and I gotta get a move on things if I am gonna get 6-7 entries in, but, I will be done with my third build today, so that should help. And I will try to have my vig done in a couple days as well... :) C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    Thanks everyone! @runnybabbit223 Yep, that is The Maestro's design. :) @Fletcher Floyd Yeah, agreed. Although, there aren't as many entries in general this year, which is a little disappointing, but good if you are competing... ;)

    [MOC] A Short Rest...

    Hello! This is my third of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... This is also my second CCCXV entry! It will be in the fantasy fortress category! So, about the build. This build is actually a redo of this chapter, as I wasn't content with my previous attempt being up to the quality of the rest of the builds. So, this build's size is 46 x 26, and I would estimate I used around 2000 pieces. It was a lot of fun to build, so I hope you enjoy! :D Pics: Figless to show the floor pattern: So, I like this build, and it was really interesting to create, because I didn't use a single hinge anywhere in this build! :D Yeah, all of these round curves, and not a single hinge... :D So, that wasn't as much a challenge in the main rounded section of the build, but surprisingly, it was tough not to use something in the elvish rounded architecture at the back... :) Also, shoutout to Toltomeja's round path design, and Isaac and John Snyder's bench design that the dwarves are sitting on... :D C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    Medieval Windmill

    Ohhh, my bad, it isn't tan, the wheat looks awesome! My small nitpick is the bright color intermingled with the olive to the right of the rocky section, personally, it stand out a little too much, and it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the landscape. Personally, I would probably have gone with dk. tan, to go with the olive green. Don't get me wrong, this is a really great build, just a small suggestion! :D

    Medieval Windmill

    Looks nice! I love the colors here! The windmill roof looks really nice for a curved roof! Also, very nice wheat fields. :) My one nitpick is the reg. tan in the landscape, I think it is a litte too bright, and looks slightly out of place... Overall though, awesome build! :D

    [MOC] Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire...

    Thanks @sander1992! Glad you like it!
  13. Hello! This is my sixth of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... This is my first entry to the CCCXV, and It is for the diplomatic mission category. So, about the build. This one is at maximum 32 x 57 x 41, but the rockwork narrows down to 20 x 28 at the bottom. I estimate it is around 3500 pieces, and it weighs around 12 pounds! The landscape is kind of unusual for me, and it is a dark green and olive green. While most of it is just SNOT, and some SNOTed off of SNOT, there are a few angles pieces in there, which I am happy with. :P Enjoy! :D Pics: The light grey is for the required lighter colored background in entering the competition: WIP pics can be viewed here, feel free to drop a like and a comment. :) Overall, I am pretty happy with this build. Even though it took a quarter of my building time in the CCC, I think it is worth it for spending that amount of time on it. It is the most rockwork I have done in one build yet, and I like it, the Christmas BL order turned out useful! :D Also, I will be going for 7 entries this year (all of which will be Hobbit related), so be looking out for the rest! :D C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    Thanks! @Andy D, unfortunately no, MP doesn't upload pics in very high resolution... @Leonardo da Bricki, yep, rocks took a good bit longer than everything else. It kinda shows too... @pantelis, Thanks! Glad you liked it!

    [MOC] Sandyman's Watermill

    Hello! Over the past two and a half months, I have been building this scene from LOTR in Hobbiton showing Sandyman's Watermill, The Brandywine Bridge, and the Brandywine River. It is irregular on one of the sides, it ends up to roughly be around 70 x 70 studs, and is my third largest build! As I have said before, this took me two and a half months of on and off building. Overall, I think I worked on it for around 75 hours... I estimate it used around 10000 pieces... Anyways, now for the exciting part: The bridge definitely took the longest to complete, and it was what I started the build doing. The arches took me a couple tries to find, but I ended up doing the illegal technique with headlight bricks connecting front to back to create a gentle curve that worked great here IMO. After figuring out the arches, I began looking at a couple different stonework techniques by great builders all over, I still couldn't find one that fit the look of the inspiration picture I was looking at, so I decided I would make up my own technique, as you can see it is just simple SNOTed tiles with gaps to give it a little dimension. Next I started to build the watermill itself and continued the same stonework style with it. I used the generic tudor style for the build, and put a straw roof on top, which proved quite difficult because of the angles. Next it was on to landscape, where I did your average landscaping, and then covered it with plant leaves like my previous Hobbiton build. Then on to the water, which is trans. clear over different shades of blue. I will be competing in the CCC this year, so expect some builds coming in a little quicker than usual. :) For the WIP journey, and a few more pictures click here: Link. Please drop a like and a comment! C&C Appreciated! I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    [MOC] Riddles in the Dark...

    Hello! This is my fifth of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... Anyways, about the build, this is on a 30 x 30 or so base, and is about 1000 pieces! The rockwork was also quite challenging, the smaller boulders were difficult to fit the sides together because of the limited space, while the big boulder was tricky because of all the strange angles... :D Enjoy! :D Here are some pics of the build: Here are some pics of the main boulder: And of course, some WIP pics: And the main pic again: I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    [MOC] Thane Rori Dulgisson from Karak Zorn

    Honestly, I like the head being big, it gives that feel of he has a big thick iron helmet on. IMO it isn't that bad... Anyways, keep up the good work! :D

    [MOC] Thane Rori Dulgisson from Karak Zorn

    Wow! This is awesome! The detail in the helmet is great! The hammer also has some nice shaping! The beard is also nice, and has a good natural look! Two small complaints, is that the legs look a little short in size comparison to the rest of the body, and the trees should be up to scale of the dwarf... I can see if there was a lack of pieces though... Besides the two nitpicks, this is a beautifully composed moc! Keep it up! :D

    [MOC] Riddles in the Dark...

    Yeah, I looked on BL, and decided that I wasn't gonna get one, just because I didn't feel like I would use it much... :/ Thanks! Yes, actually, I got around 2,400 off of PAB, so, it is the easiest way for me to connect my rockwork, and I have done this with all my rockwork for a long time now... :D Thanks again! :D

    Thanks Kevin! :D Thanks! Unfortunately, no I don't have a Gollum minifigure... :/ The hair pieces are mushrooms/fungi as well as the hats. :D Bones would have been nice, a really good suggestion actually that I completely forgot to include in the build... Thanks again for all the suggestions! :D

    MELO R3: Ithilien

    Thanks! I wish I could redo the oliphaunts and that section of landscaping in this build, and I am not very fond of that section at all, but, yes, there are some periodic supports on the outer edge every 10 studs or so... Thanks again for your support! :D
