    [Freebuild] Out Through the Market

    @Puvel @JintaiZ @Otherworld @LEGO Train 12 Volts @Servertijd @Brickwolf Thank you all for the positive feedback! @MAB, if Disney buying LOTR means that we get more LOTR Lego, then I'm all for it! @Grover, glad you're enjoying the story; hopefully the next installment isn't far behind... @Goldiebricks, if you're looking for some unsolicited snot advice, you're in luck: Brickheadz - on sale - are your new favorite theme. And do everything you can to become familiar with the geometry of the brick. Otherwise, just keep tinkering and be prepared to re-do your mocs a lot.

    [Freebuild] Out Through the Market

    Thanks for the kind words! I had a lot of fun with all the minifigs, so I'm glad you noticed them! I'm glad you like the cloak, it took a lot of attempts to get to this point! And how could I pass up an opportunity to get AoM credit in a freebuild? Thanks! That's why it's called the Watchman's Way, right? Thank you! I love the collars, but they are difficult to use because of how high they sit on the back of the minifig head. There are only a few hairstyles and headgear pieces that work with them, and most of those are still not entirely seated on the head. Thanks for the good advice, it's been rectified! I do love the rotated 1x1; it's a very simple motif but adds a lot of character. I just need to be sure I'm not over-using it...
  3. Another great story installment, and fantastic work on the layout from both of you! Your buildings fit with @adde51's so seamlessly, it's hard to tell where one moc ends and another begins. Keep it up!

    Age of Mitgardia (free-build-challenge)

    Inn Phase 2 and Store Phase 2 are both present in this moc:
  5. Previously: A New Post at Gammeltårn Party Supplies Perils Old and New Unsought but Welcome The autumn sun had nearly reached its zenith as Kjell and his father made their way from the stronghold and down to Førstlys' harbor. Avoiding the prying eyes of the High Road, they took the Watchman's Way and picked a path through the bustling Lower Market. "Father, know that I do not question your judgment, but I must know why you entrust me and my task to this envoy," Kjell pressed as they walked on. "You speak as though you are old friends, though I have never heard his mention." His father was slow to respond, pacing deliberately through the crowd with his guard behind him. "When I was young, perhaps not even half your age, we hosted this very same elf in our halls. He spoke little of his origins, though he told many tales of our own island, as if he had lived several lifetimes upon our shores already. During his short stay he taught my siblings and me to read books and scrolls from my grandfather's library that even our most learned scholars could not decipher, and he showed my father and me many of the island's secret and forgotten places. He was among us for but a few seasons, and then, quite abruptly, he departed and did not -until this day- return." "So why return now and entangle himself in our domestic affairs? While I am grateful for his aid, I am loathe to let a new friend fight our battles for us with so little a commitment of our own strength." Kjell grumbled, his legs aching to reach their destination with more urgency than his father would allow. "As he told us earlier, he believes that this domestic affair aligns with his own task, and coincides with his purpose in returning to these shores," his father replied. "Though, as to our commitment, fear not my son. Some of your compatriots returned from their ranging this morning, and have volunteered to join you in relieving your cousin. Ah! Here comes one of the very same hardy fellows!" The lord of Førstlys halted and waved as a tall, swarthy, mail-clad man cut a path through the crowd, his heavy grey cloak billowing behind him. Kjell recognized Ulrik Dunwald and his confidence swelled. It would truly be a boon to have a company of Skygger at hand. Ulrik reached them, stopped, and offered his sword as a sign of fealty. "My lord, I am yours to command!" Kjell's father inclined his head in acknowledgment, and Ulrik turned to Kjell. "My captain, it has been to long since my Shadows and I have ridden at your side. We are happy to do so once more." "And I am happy to have you at my side, old friend," Kjell replied, offering an outstretched hand. "Then let us make haste," Ulrik exclaimed. "Glory, and a ship, await!"

    [MOC] SHIPtember: The M.O.C.H.A.

    Love all the angles on this thing, it's got a really funky exterior that is still somehow completely cohesive. Very nice work!

    [MOC] LL885- New Coalition Repair Freighter

    It was really cool watching this one come together on your flickr, but the final product is so much more than the sum of its parts. Another excellent addition to your very impressive fleet, and kudos for banging out such a beast in under a month!

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I've always wondered about the large order service - do they apply any sort of bulk discount, or is it still the same price per piece as if you bough through B&P?

    Folwin's Garden

    Nice scarecrow, and I appreciate the subtle slope to the landscape you’ve got going in the background. Glad to see you collection is growing with lots of fun colors and pieces in Billund.

    [Custom CMF] Ladies of Historica

    Another wonderful series of figs to further flesh out the guilds! You have a truly enviable collection of minifigure components, and a great eye for combinations. I'm also a big fan of the fire dancer, and I love your take on Ylspeth. Keep up the good work!

    [MOC] Sannhetens Fjell - The Mountain of Truth

    Wow. I love the steady change of colors to the top of the mountain, your clouds are excellent, and that tiny, huge dragon is awesome. Great job!

    [MOC] Dwarven Barber Shop

    This is gorgeous! I love all the little details you've included to make it feel as lively as an official set, and the usual bits of information on flora and fauna are, as always, a wonderful extra dimension. I have to highlight that mirror: a perfectly dwarven vanity product and an excellent design. Well done!

    [MOC] MR2400 Horizon

    It's always cool to see what other hobbies AFOLs pursue, but it's rare to see anyone integrate their hobbies so seamlessly. That SHIP is amazing, fits perfectly the rest of your fleet, and is all the more incredible for housing what seems like a pretty stout computer setup. I just wish I could see this thing in person!

    Snowy Hike

    Is this the lead-in build for you pitching an official GoH theme to the creative directors in Billund? They'll probably request one of Eryl's friends be included, plus stud shooters so they can have a snowball fight, but this is otherwise a perfect little scene!

    [AoM Farm Phase I] Fir Tips Season

    I love that all of your builds have helped to expand on the culture of Mitgardia and add so much more dimension to our guild than our reputation as fur-covered, frostbitten, beer-swilling, ax-swinging, ungodly-smelling barbarians would suggest. Well done!
