    [MOC] The Fortress of Falkenholt

    Thank you! I like to build very slowly in my spare time, I build this over 18 months. Yep. Thank you, I really enjoy the detail.

    [MOC] The Fortress of Falkenholt

    Thanks, glad you like it! Thanks, I definitely built this one for nine year old me. There is a little bit of dark grey, but not much. I see a lot of light grey castles built on dark grey rocks, which doesn't really make sense to me as the castle would be built from the stone that surrounds it, but I also made a decision early on to base the colour scheme of my build primarily on the 1980s colour palette (I did break this rule along the way with dark orange and dark tan). I have also tried to use different textures rather than different colours to denote different materials (eg: cut stone versus natural stone). Thanks! Thank you, I had a lot of fun with the cutaway/cross section aspect of the build.

    Here are some images from when I designed them (I did not use all of them in my build): https://harrisbricks.com/2020/forest-guard-shields/ https://harrisbricks.com/2020/black-falcon-shields/

    [MOC] The Fortress of Falkenholt

    Thanks, I particularly enjoy building terrain. Thank you, I'm glad you like it! Cheers, yeah I have used techniques where I need them to achieve particular angles etc, but for the most part it is built pretty simply. I am more about detail and texture than crazy techniques.
  7. This build is a large castle/landscape display featuring The Knights of the Black Falcon and The Forest Guard. First and foremost the aim of this build was to showcase what I love about those classic mid-80s Castle sets and specifically my two favourite factions. I have drawn inspiration from the original sets featuring each faction, specifically what I loved about them as a child and aimed to contrast that with what appeals to me as an adult builder. The build features two fortresses side by side, Falkenholt Castle, the fortress of the Knights of the Black Falcon and an underground network of caves and tunnels that comprise the fortress of the Forest Guard. Some of the elements that I am most happy with in this build are the level of detail and texture, the cross-section style cutaway on the edges of the build showing the internal structure of the castle as well as the geological layers of rock, clay and soil and of course the three varieties of trees that make up the forest.

    Thanks, it was about seven months work I think, but very gradually in my spare time.

    [MOC] Edward's Island (Neo Fabuland)

    Thank you, glad you like it!
  11. This project is a Fabuland inspired café built in a Neo Fabuland style, the idea of employing Fabuland as a visual style, in much the same way that Neo-Classic Space looks to Classic Space as a set of design conventions. You can find out more about my goals for Neo Fabuland here and see more of my Neo Fabuland builds here if you are interested. First and foremost my aim is to reflect the visual style and colour scheme of the original Fabuland sets whilst taking the level of detail up using the range of parts we now have available to us to create a fully realised environment for Fabuland figures (in this case Catherine Cat, and hopefully at least one customer) to inhabit. Catherine Cat's Café takes the form of a small two storey building featuring a curved bay window facade, with an oriel window and two dormer windows upstairs, tiled roof and a detailed brickwork corner detail surrounded by a small garden with a paved path and café table. Inside we find an small upstairs kitchen with an oven and bench and a downstairs serving area with counter and menu boards. If you would like this set to become a reality please support it on LEGO Ideas, and encourage anyone who would like to see Fabuland again grace the shelves to support it too!

    Thanks, I had a lot of fun building terrain (nevermind everything else). Thanks! Wow, that is a great compliment, thanks! Cheers, and thanks :) Thanks! The terrain (though really a background detail) is one of the most satisfying elements of this build. Thanks! Cheers! Thanks! Cheers!
