    [MOC] Medieval Watermill

    Lego medieval watermill by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Lego medieval watermill by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Lego medieval watermill by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Lego medieval watermill by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr I'm building a large Robin Hood Display in "medieval style" with Nottingham Castle, Village, and Sherwood Forest. Here is one of my latest designs, Medieval Watermill, which has a power functions motor hidden inside and geared down to move the watermill. I've also submitted it on the ideas page if anybody cares to vote here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/159800 Thanks for any support/ feedback and viewing!
  2. Hi guys, I would like to present my latest creation - Guarded Inn - based on the classic LEGO Set #6067 Guarded Inn which is one of my favourite sets ever :) Here's the link for the complete album on flickr including a comparison picture of my MOC and the classic set I own. Unfortunately I lost the knight minifg but beside that I think the set it's complete! yay! Comments and other kind of feedback are welcome :D Cheers!

    Watermill

    Hello all, i wanted to build the medieval village what Derfal Cadarn build in this topic of his: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/60907-detailed-guide-to-building-a-medieval-village/ I started to build and soon found out that it is a HUGE project which requires a huge amount of bricks. I do have bricks though but not as many that are used in that project. So i decided to do the landscape first and build the watermill. All is based on his excellent guide so all credits go to him ofcourse. Mind you, its not nearly finished but i managed to build some. Hope you like it and please comment ( but be gentle, this is my first ever build) I used a baseplate of 48 x 48, laid the foundation and started to build away.
  4. Hi, I'd like to present my latest MOC - Eastern European Castle based a bit on concepts from upcoming game "Kingdoms Come: Deliverance". It is also my entry to XIV CCC in Miscellaneous - Large Creation Full gallery is in my album on flickr.https://flic.kr/s/aHskPcg1NX
  5. Hey all, it's been quite awhile since I was last able to build, but I just couldn't miss the Colossal Castle Contest - especially with a warship category this year. So, Instead of building a handful of rushed entries, I decided instead to pour my heart and soul into a single entry. (Pictures link to Flickr) I decided to revisit an idea I had when I built my first ship a couple years ago. I hadn't managed to make it work then, but I have come a long way as a builder since then. The technique ended up working even better than I had hoped, allowing me to build a sturdy, frustration-free hull with multidirectional curvature and minimal attachment points. This enabled me to make the sides of the hull removable, and to add an interior. The walls you see belowdecks are actually attached to the backside of the ship's frame, meaning that no matter which side is removed, the cabin will always appear as a complete cross-section. In addition, the entire ship is modular, allowing for the removal of the mast and rigging, forecastle, stern decks, hull, and even the main deck, which slides up over the mast. I really wanted to go all-out this year, and, inspired by JKBrickworks' working torsion-spring ballista, I decided to add a functional artillery piece to the deck. This was very challenging, as JKBrickworks' model is over 16 studs wide (much too big for mounting on the ship). Effective torsion springs took up too much space, so I instead lashed together flex tubes and built a scaled-down winding/ratcheting system that is similar to JKBrickworks' original design. It worked, and the ballista you see will wind, hold, and launch multiple projectiles across a desk. Finally, the ship features a working rudder and tiller, all-LEGO rigging (including the rat-lines, which are cut and sewn-together nets), deployable anchors, three projectile types for the ballista (bolt, harpoon, and ball-and-chain), crow's nest mounted crossbow, working doors and hatch, and a full crew including the VIP passengers, captain, navigator, sailors, cook, naval warfare officer, ballista crewmen, marine detachment commander, marine boarder, "Leatherhead" marine sharpshooter, and expeditionary marine. I hope you enjoy this build as much as I enjoyed building it! As always, comments and criticism are welcome and appreciated, and there are (and will be) more pictures on Flickr. Happy New Year!

    [MOC] The Resting Tower

    “Weary from the long journey, our heroes find the toppled great tower looming before them. An unspoken question haunted them: had the daughter of the Duchess been in her quarters? Should she no longer breathe, the mission would be for nought. Once a floor hatch, now a door. Once a door, now a floor. Her room was on the 4th level. They entered the 9th.” -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My initial attempt at bringing the resting tower to life ended in ruins. I made it too large, and I began running low on the necessary parts. About a month ago I made the decision to tear it all apart and start afresh. It was a hard decision after all the hours spent on construction, but it was worth it! I had just received a much needed bricklink order, so the timing was good. The smaller size was much easier to manage, and I had enough parts to spare for the large chunk of wall the tower fell through. I would have loved to spend more time on it, but I knew I could go on endlessly, so I made the call after about two months of part time building. The big challenge on the second go at building this MOC was fusing the odd sections together so it wouldn't fall apart every time I touched it. Watch this short video to get a behind the scenes glance at how I build and document my MOCs: https://youtu.be/edeZsEzeXBA - Loreman RestingTower_02 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_03 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_05 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_06 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_07 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_09 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_10 by The Loreman, on Flickr RestingTower_11 by The Loreman, on Flickr
  7. Merry Christmas! When snow is covering the towers and rooftops, you smell the scent of cinnamon and ginger and hear the jingles in the distance, you know that it is a special time of the year… In this medieval town, the people are busy preparing for Christmas Eve, gather together in the town square, and waiting for the man with a white beard. Enjoy the 24 days of waiting as the story unfolds, starting on 1st December! P.S.: Enjoy my other two Advent calendars also Batman Advent Calendar City Advent Calendar
  8. Hey everybody, this is my last build of the year and the last one for at least a few months as I've said in my flickr account a few days before I'll be moving to Billund on January. This build was actually started a few months ago but I never got the chance to finish it until now. And as I got a big chunk of my collection unsorted and my time is very limited right now, I didn't manage to get the results I wanted. A river was planned as well as a richer landscape and more leaves on the upper part. Anyway, hope you like it! :) Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House

    [MOC] A Family History

    I have always wondered of what exact origin my last name “Klapheke” stemmed from, and what exactly it means. I decided to research it, and, being that some in my family are dedicated genealogists, it wasn’t long before I found the story behind it… Circa 12th century, somewhere in Müschen, near Laer, Germany. Hubertus de Rode, a knight who lived on a fief that was owned by a local bishop. The knight’s property (a mill and a house) led to some farms of a church-village, all of which was surrounded by a fence. It is speculated that Hubertus de Rode’s property was close to the edge of this fence, and that he might have been the gatekeeper, opening the “klapheck (a type of opening gate)” to visitors and townsfolk. It is most likely then that Hubertus de Rode then earned the title “Hubertus of Swing-Gate,” or “Hubertus Klapheck.” Klapheck would later change to Klapheke as the ages passed by. So there you have it. A dedication to the first Klapheke. MOC-wise I didn’t want this creation to be “run-of-the-mill” MOC (heheheh…), so I tried my best to add as many details as I was able. Special thanks to Atte and Cesbrick for heavily inspiring me. Also, big thanks to my workplace Bricks & Minifigs for supplying me extra parts to build this MOC. You guys are awesome. :D

    [MOC] Lions and Dragons

    Hello all! I build these vignettes as both a nod to Classic Castle of the late 80s/early 90s and the 2010 Kingdoms-theme, which features a new take on the old antagonism between the two powers.The sets of the 2010-incarnation weren't great (well, mostly!), but the minifigs were just awesome! Anyway, enough blabla. Lets have a look at the Throne-room of the Dragon Queendom: For the Dragon Knights I had a distinctive, quite archaic look in mind, which pays tribute to the often harsh and inhospitable land they live in. A clear geometry with straight lines and steep slopes to give the impression of the Queen’s throne room being made of large black stones cut into simple shapes. Quite a imposing fortress-like architecture really with inspiration from ancient Babylonian temples and the city of Windhelm from the game Skyrim, with a little bit of Saruman’s throne Room thrown in. I also decided to give it a more asymmetric layout, to make it visually more interesting and slightly unsettling. The fireplace is made from a transparent Nexo Knights minifigure-base and a light brick I got from a Prince of Persia set. It turned out looking quite naturalistic and required no fancy effects added in post-production at all! Meanwhile, at the court of the Lion King: The Lion Kingdom got a more welcoming throne room, which impresses rather by its elaborated decoration than with brutalist geometry. It is in every respect a more conventional setting, with typical medieval decorative elements and a warm colour palette and a quite symmetric layout to emphasize noble rulership, justice and stability. The striped columns are inspired by the throne room of Emperor Charlemagne in the cathedral of Aachen, as my King himself is inspired by the life of the real-life ruler.
  11. Underground mine entrance in the mountains of Erilea. Selecting the mineral from the gangue outside the entrance of the underground mine. A messager coming... = = = = = = = = = Here we are with a medieval MOC I created for a little event there in my places. Had fun working on it, hope you like it guys! Enjoy!
  12. These were my contributions to the Ye Old Merry Battleground layout at BFVA. The Vermillion realm (red) and the Cerulean realm (blue) are at war! The land's greatest heroes go head to head in many epic battles where breaches are made on both sides. The forest men who dwell outside of the two realms' protection acted upon the war's opportunity and planned their own schemes for riches. As you cross between the realms, beware of bandits, swindlers, and dragons. Be sure to check out the full write-up of the display on InnovaLUG.com.

  14. After a long absence, that I am presenting today it is the single largest MOC and challenging I have ever done so far. This MOC represent a medieval winter district with 4 houses, a cemetery (on the back) and a rock mountain with a castle used today for tourism visits. Around the block it consists of 6 Baseplates 32x32 and will be part again of my famous Winter Village. This project took me nine months of work and the use of 16,000 pieces. All the houses and the whole castle (and the basement of the castle) are embellished with furnishings with many scenes and details. The entire moc consists of 45 Minifigs and there are various curiosities scattered to embellish the work. I put on Flickr over 100 photographs to observe every detail of this moc. You can ask me all the curiosity and I will try to fill all your questions. This MOC will be presented for the first time in Lecco (Italy) during the two days of the exhibition at the end of July 2016. Flickr Complete Gallery: Greetings to all! Sandro ....The Winter Has Come!!!
  15. The Summer Joust is a castle contest with 6 different categories that is open May 1st-June 30th 2016. There is a large prize pool with prizes for each category plus some individual awards. Categories: Natural Beauty: Show us a beautiful landscape, whether that be a peaceful forest glade, thundering waterfall, or blistering desert. The emphasis is on nature, so man made buildings shouldn't be the focus. Ruins being overgrown, or such like, is permissible. Faction Action: Take an existing Lego castle theme/faction and tell your version of their story with the build. Something like the Dragon Knights catching a dragon, Forest-men robbing the rich,or Crown soldiers defending the royal castle. Any Castle faction is fair game, even Collectible Minifigure Series factions. Historian: Recreate a real historical event, or building from medieval times. Ideas include, battles, castles, manors, houses, treaties, and feasts. Reference what your build is based on. 476-1500 AD is the time-frame we're looking for. Guild Creation: Assemble a team of builders, and create your own faction and develop the buildings, landscape, and lifestyle of this group through multiple creations. Realistic, or fantasy factions are acceptable. Teams should consist of 2-4 members, and a maximum of 4 builds is allowed for the category. So if you have 4 team members, each person would create 1 build. If you only have two members, each can create 2 builds, and so on. Castle Interior(s): Show what goes on inside the castle with an interior scene. Anything from daily life to holiday celebrations, as long as it is inside the castle. Building an interior and exterior in the same build is permissible, but the focus should be on the interior. Vignette: Create any medieval scene you can imagine, only one catch, it has to fit on an 8x8 base. Minimum overhang allowed, for things like tree branches and fig accessories. Some of the prizes that are up for grabs: Check out the full rules and details in the dedicated flickr group, Then get to building some great Castle MOCs!

    Benoic Watchtower

    Thanks to de Gothia for letting me place this watchtower in Benoic. Having recently acquired quite a few dark green plates, I wanted to try a landscape in that color and chose to put a small tower/cottage combo on it. There is a full interior, though because of the small size the furnishings are fairly frugal. Both doors are functional as well. The corner stonework was inspired by Dwalin Forkbeard, the cottage was inspired by Legopard, the ‘gear’ mushrooms were borrowed from Captain Flint, and the tower windows were inspired by Gideon. Benoic has many stone watchtowers within its lands to provide warning in case of attack, and also as bastions of defense. This particular tower also has a small cottage to serve as living quarters for the soldiers stationed there. More pictures can be seen on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, your comments and suggestions are always appreciated
  17. ”And then from the rampart came a guffaw, he he he… because one or another attacker got inpaled…” with these words the late professor Władysław Filipowiak of ancient Slavic history, took up the story of first settlers on Polish soil. The lecture was about one of the first settlement from the Iron Age – Biskupin. The Biskupin settlement has been discovered by accident while draining marches in mid. 1930s. The age of this particular settlement was estimated as old as VIII century b.c.. The settlement was established on a slightly wet island of over 2 hectares and consisted of ca. 106 oak and pine log-houses, of similar layout and measurement (appox. 8 x 10 m each), built in 13 straight rows. Each house accommodated one family of 10–12 persons (in total over 1000 people). An open hearth was located in the centre of the house. Because of the damp, boggy ground the streets were covered with wooden planks. The settlement was surrounded by a tall wooden palisade, set on a rampart made up of both wood boxes filled up with earth. The rampart surrounding this grid town was more than 450 m long. The settlement was most probably consumed by the lake when the climate change, and thanks to that fact was well preserved to our times. For that, it is called the "Polish Pompeii". Nowadays, a full-scale entrance gate, part of the rampart and two house rows were erected on the site. Such settlements were called "grody" ("gród" in singular). They were build (in this or similar forms) on Slavic areas of nowadays Poland till the early medieval times, when location of dwelling shifted in favour of towns around or close to castles (first wooden, later on stone / masonry). It took almost half a year for this Lego model to become reality. First works began in late December 2015 with initial drawings and virtual construction in LDD. As it was my first virtual project, it took some time to complete. Each hut is, despite same frame construction, slightly different (wall arrangement, thatched roof). Here and there some details like dried herbs, woven cloth or tools mark the hut’s wall. One of the huts is open, and with a bit of luck (the aisles are – as in original settlement – very narrow), one can see the interior and hearth. The MOC took over 36000 elements to complete. It measures 5x4 baseboards, divided into two modules (3x4 and 2x4) – otherwise due to size and weight it could not be moved out of my flat :). The not-planned in LDD technic boundary runs alongside one the aisles, so fortunately for whole process, I encountered no construction drawbacks. The settlement is accurate build from historic point of view. Of course there is a limitation towards the number of aisles (9 instead of 13) and houses (the longest rows had 10 huts, mine are 5-4 huts long). The one visible exception is the statue of Światowid (Svetovit, the pagan Slavic god of 4 faces), which stands on the main square of the village, while it would be better of in a chram (a temple) outside the settlement or amid a sacred grove. As our historic settlers took up hunting, fishing, root and berry gathering, perhaps some early farming on the mainland, and crafts such as weaving, pottery, fur tanning – we have all those on the Lego counterpart. The minifigs sport custom made decals. Many thanks for Jetboy for his extensive support with the photo shoot.
  18. Hello Here is the latest for my work-in-progress village, and my favourite so far. I reckon the colours work well together, and I'll stick to bright colours for my next building. I'm pretty happy with the rocks, but they are so parts/labour intensive! I have a new respect for large-scale landscaper Mockers. I might have to rethink the scale of this village... Anyway, I hope you like it. Simon Crystal Tavern (1) by simon crocker, on Flickr Crystal Tavern (2) by simon crocker, on Flickr Crystal Tavern (6) by simon crocker, on Flickr
  19. Who does not know Leonardo da Vinci? Probably the greatest genius of all time. Passionate about everything from astrology to painting, writing to weapons, invented and built the most diverse machines. He was responsible for the most incredible inventions and genius of history. I present these are the summary of the passions that characterized Leonardo: the technological innovations in the military and civilian spheres The Hammer, the Tank and the Ornithopter The hammer was created as an aid to the blacksmiths of the time, thanks to a rotating mechanism, he was able to deliver powerful blows with the hammer that rose and fell on the workpiece The tank is on top of my preferences regarding Leonardo's machines... together the helicopter ... Pushed (manually) from 4 independent wheels positioned inside that allowed to rotate on its axis, was equipped with cannons on 360 °, was equipped also have an observation tower and accessible by stairs. As regards the model the wheels are functioning and are equipped with handles for easy rotation. Protection is totally removable to find out what is hidden inside. In the Ornithoper model you can move the wings up and down as you want. Here you can find the complete album: https://flic.kr/s/aHskAzngrZ
  20. My brother John and I were inspired by Mark and Steven’s fig brawls to have one of our own. The theme was medieval bandits, and these figs will be used in John’s next build. My 2 bandits: John's 2 bandits: Which pair of bandits is your favorite?

    Summer Joust [MOC]

    Typo in the title, should be Summer, if a mod wants to fix it This was made to serve as the announcement poster for the Summer Joust contest. I took a lot of inspiration from Mark and Steven‘s Grand Joust of Giscellicburg. I tried to achieve a festive atmosphere with lots of bright colors, and large crowds of spectators which was quite a lot of fun. More pictures can be found on brickbuilt. C&C welcome

    Land of Raur: Castle

    This is the last of 4 micros I built as prizes for the Guild Creation category of the Summer Joust. These 4 builds were meant to fit the category, so I focused on different aspects of the same civilization: castle, town, farm, and landscape. I chose to name it the Land of Rauor, as Rauor is the Norse word for red and I used red roofs to help tie all the models together. All 4 together: You can see more pictures on brickbuilt Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated

    Land of Rauor: Farm

    This is the third of 4 micros I built as prizes for the Guild Creation category of the Summer Joust. This particular model was focused on a city of Rauor. You can see the first and the second builds already. Rauor is just a fictional land I made up, and tried to develop the culture and setting of with these 4 micro builds, the rest of which will be posted soon. C&C welcome
