Awesome! Such a wonderful busy-ness to it, yet keeping it simplistic with the textures. :) Really nice work! Keep it up!
Really nice work Grover! Love that you went for a story tower here! Great story as well. As far a favorite detail, I gotta go with that awesome chandelier using the pirate wheel! Keep up the good work man!
@TheLordOfBricks Just to parry his vote, I normally don't support voting for oneself.

Nice entry! I haven't learnt how to make those crazy angles yet, so I'm impressed every time. I particularly enjoy seeing roofs of different colours in the same (small!) build, I'd have never thought they could work that well
'my favorite spot of texture is hidden behind the guy sitting down' <--- this cracked me up
Thanks En_Zoo! Yeah, I was also kind of surprised it worked with all the colors.On 2/28/2019 at 11:06 AM, kahir88 said:
Amazing build! Didn't know that how many building can fit on 16x16. Good luck in the contest!
Thanks man! Good luck to you too!On 2/28/2019 at 1:55 PM, de Gothia said:
Wow! So many great buildings with crazy angels in such a small footprint!
Thanks de Gothia! Yes, lots of angels. ;) Thanks again!On 2/28/2019 at 2:59 PM, Henjin_Quilones said:
Impressive that you got so much into a small footprint! I am glad to see someone did something a bit more elaborate for the challenge, maximizing the available space to create an illusion of a much larger build. The texture you have here is also top-notch on the stone section. It looks great, and that comes from me, a vocal critic of your previous style! This is clean while still being detailed and textured, without appearing dilapidated and un-maintained. The half-plate and half-stud offsets, combined with some 1x2 plates with rail and the odd closed stud, is just great. I think it might be my favorite texture I have seen in LEGO in a long time. I don't like the tudor section as much, but it still looks nice and gets the job done. Don't forget to post it in the HSS thread if you have not done so already.
Wow, thanks much HQ! I am also quite pleased with the stone texture, took me a few tries to get the textures right. As for the Tudor, yeah I kind of agree, but I have 2 large builds and a few broken down builds which have eaten up my pieces, I wanted to go all dk. tan with just olive accents and reduce the angles some... Thanks again!On 2/28/2019 at 4:59 PM, The Last of Nergoue said:
Great moc! It seems like is much larger then it really is due to how tall the moc is and how much detail you managed to cram into it!
Thanks man! Yep, went tall with this one.On 2/28/2019 at 7:42 PM, W Navarre said:
This is amazing, love the amount of stuff you created with unique layout and angles on the left in spite of the small footprint! There's a little tiny something I don't like about the tower, or rather my eye tells me it could be better, but the rest is pretty spiffy man, keep it up!
Thanks Navarre! Yeah, agreed the tower really doesn't look that great here, but it does IRL. ;)On 3/1/2019 at 12:26 AM, Grover said:
What a beautiful build! Your builds always remind me of the high medieval fantasy computer games, like the old Quest for Glory series. You use a lot of great texture and color in the buildings that look great. I especially love the dark blue roof contrasting with the dark read and black ones. The olive green imitating moss or mold growing on the bottom of the walls is especially nice. As for HSS, I get the inn and the tower... but where is the glass blower? I don't see that in the build, and I'd love to! Very nice work!
Thanks Grover! Heh, I can see your point, but I'm not much of a gamer, so I haven't taken much inspiration from them. ;) Also, as for the glassblower, I decided to change it to the cooper for the same category... I realized I put more barrels and baskets in the scene than I did glass.
Wait, so I'm up against Grover in voting this round? Or is that the for sure matchups next round? Either way best of luck Grover! May the noblest knight win! ;)
Nice work Joel! Really good job for a one day build, the colors are very cohesive, although the tree on the right isn't my favorite. Clever idea to have a dual level scene! Keep it up my man!
Wow, the second picture is so fantastic! Also, really great shelves! Keep it up man!
Really excellent work here HQ, such a wonderfully atmospheric build. Keep it up man! :)
I am really liking this competition! Thanks for setting this up HQ!!! Good luck Emil! :)
"Halgreld, a leader, a warrior, a servant. That's what I see as a good leader of all Avalonia." said a man as Halgreld left the inn. "Ay, a born leader. He's kept the small town of Eldford thriving for ten years." stated another man.
I, Halgreld was born in the years of war, growing up always in defense, yet learning to control my anger at a young age. After my elder brother Heiscard was killed in battle and my father Ingeram injured and sent back to rule over Eldford, I was in charge of looking after my two younger brothers Gerfalst and Fingarfelin. I was afterwards against war forever and only ever wanting peace for those around me. As the war surged again, I was sent to war to fight evil, yet inside there was ever growing hatred against war and harm. Upon returning from the war, I found the beautiful grasslands of Avalonia near Eldford burned and scalded by the malice of war. I returned to my home, with the crumbles of the farmyard and pastures and wreckage all around me. As I entered my old cottage dwelt in by all the former leaders of Eldford, I was relieved to see my family still alive with few injuries. As I embraced my family I decided that whatever I did, I would do out of love and not hate, solving problems through words and not warfare. All I want is peace and safety for my family and country. At first, all I committed my time to was my occupation as a farmer, trying to keep life simple and keep away from the worries of the world. As time passed though, my parents began to age and my father needed me to step up and be the leader that Eldford needed in the future. Being the eldest living son of the family, I was the rightful heir and slowly was taught all the ways in which my father lead the small town. I soon acquired the full leadership of Eldford, helped by my father whenever in a desperate situation. As Eldford began to grow in size and population, it was essential that I expanded the leaders of the village. The mayor of the hamlet Amroth being my father's fellow companion through his years of war. I learned much from his wisdom in leading people and he continually supports me up to this day. One day he suggested that I meet his daughter, saying "You two would compliment each other, she can step into the role that I have served here for years." At first I took nothing of it, as being a leader of a town at the age of thirty years is nothing new to have daughters of men suggested to you. Nonetheless here I am today married to Londaer, Amroth's daughter running the kingdom in peace and prosperity with other towns around in Avalonia. Ever growing in popularity in his own hometown besides the few naysayers, the leaders of Avalonia have began to notice how well Eldford has thrived with very few complaints coming from the people of Eldford.
(Halgreld is the one with the hobbit hair) My entry for the Avalonia Mini-Challenge, also for the HSS(REQ-Hospitality-Lodging: Inn, REQ-Military: Tower, REQ-Craftsman-General Goods: Cooper). This was a ton of fun to build and I am excited to be a part of the competition. I tried to tone down the texture on this one, but unfortunately my favorite spot of texture is hidden behind the guy sitting down. Another unfortunate thing is that the tower doesn't look as good as it does IRL, the angle of the picture makes the tudor of the tower and roof look really square and not smooth. Just know it looks really good from a higher angle. :P
I hope you enjoy!
To Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour be the Glory!

@Exetrius I was looking for something like this but couldn't find it. Perhaps as a new member I'm not allowed to set signature? Anyway, thank you for your help. ;)
You have to have 10 posts until you have full Eurobricks account options. :) So just comment around on some builds and stuff! Welcome to the guilds and most importantly Avalonia! ;)
So can we count these builds for HSS? Also, can you fulfill multiple HSS categories in one build? Thanks as always! :)
Ooh sweet! I'm up against Emil though! I'm dead... Looks cool anyways! :)
Fingarfelin - A Hermit that lives right outside the woods of Eldford. Part of the family leadership of the small town, Fingarfelin is third in line to run the town as a leader if the occasion arises. He loves nature above all else, although he is a hermit, he is somewhat social, but he is welcomed by few. He is somewhat clumsy and the only weapon he is able to wield is an axe. His parents have sent him away to be himself and he sticks to his few friends that he has.
Anyways, this is super rushed and will be updated later, I just need to get a character intro in case I want to compete in the Avalonian Mini-Challenge.
Also, how do I make it a smaller pic?
Wow, this is really fantastic, the colors and details here are spot on, that tree is really nice too. I love the mood of this scene, looks so medieval! Keep it up!
Wow, very awesome!! The colors are really nice, the tan compliments the sand green and red colors nicely! The roof gardens are my favorite though. Keep up the good work!

Woo! Got registered!
Not sure how that works; good luck to you!
Awesome! Glad That worked, I had just made the comment about an hour ago, they are apparently working pretty quick on the last day of the CCC!
I can try and help, they just set up a post in the administrative forum for members to let the admin know when there is someone trying to get in but can't. What username did you enter in, I'll try and contact them over on the forum... :)
Awesome! Hopefully I can scramble something together this time! Definitely intrigued by the 3rd category as well. :)
Very nice! Great build and great story! Keep it up!

Really tough to vote for this round, I assume the finals will be even tougher...
P.S. I think his username is Servertijd, not Severtijd. Small typo ;)
