  1. Hi all, This is my entry for this marvellous end of year contest. I made a little house for elves which is on a side of a big rock. This rock was modified by the elves to add a bread oven in a part of it. After that, they constructed a small house to be just aside the oven. I was inspired by old farm here (in east of France) because many ot them had a bread oven 50 years ago. Unfortunatelly today a lot of them has disappeared. I worked hard on the snow because I would like to give it a real shape with curves and some snowslides on the second part of the roof because of the wind. I also add a light brick in the oven, with a "key" to turn it on or off. The key is hidden in the rock. Have a great end of year, thanks for reading. link to the album on photobucket : http://s204.photobuc...village contest

    [MOC] Christmas Winter Village

    Hi everyone. My daughter and I have been working on a Christmas Winter Village MOC. Its based around the Santa's Workshop and the other Winter Village sets. We've also built a large Christmas Tree, a custom Lego Church and a number of smaller features. I hope you like the MOC. If you want to watch the previous 5 updates showing it being built from basic structure, to the working tree lights, to where it is today, click on our Youtube channel link. I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave any comments. Thanks, Mike
  3. A small free-build to celebrate the new season. During the long winter, an important source of protein for the Mitgardians is fish caught underneath the ice of the lakes. This fisherman is both lucky and unlucky, he has found some big fishes but should have made a bigger hole in the ice... I'd like to claim the following UoP credits: Underwater [Hydrology] Fishing [Agriculture and Zoology] (I know that it's a small scene, but together with this build and this build maybe I've shown enough underwater skills to merit the "Underwater" credit? I thought about asking for "life in Mitgardia" as well, but since I've been trying to tell people not to claim too many credits for too small builds I'll save that for another build)
  4. Everybody knows the best vacationing spot isn't on one of the beaches of Loreos or in the forests of Lenfald. No, it's the beautiful, snow-covered mountains of Garheim. And that's where you'll find Gräehm Kendraic spending his time during the recovery period. Until he gets bored, that is. My entry for the Restricted category of the current Global Challenge for the Lands of Roawia game taking place on Merlin's Beard and for Miscellaneous in CCCXII.
  5. This is my christmas display 2014. A lot of inspiration from David Hensel, Luke Watkins Hutchinson, César Soares and Gideon_83, a special thanks for the inspiring MOC´s you share with the rest of us! The santas sleigh with the reindeers are from set 10245 and the dragons head is from set 4507. Feedback, criticism and cheers are most welcome ;) Christmas2014_pic1 by _Majkel_, on Flickr Christmas2014_pic11 by _Majkel_, on Flickr Christmas2014_pic14 by _Majkel_, on Flickr Christmas2014_pic21 by _Majkel_, on Flickr Christmas2014_pic23 by _Majkel_, on Flickr Christmas2014pic20 by _Majkel_, on Flickr
  6. Hi everyone. This is probably my first successful MOC created after dark ages (couple of others are unsuccessful in progress). We had a small contest for members of our BalticLUG living its early days, the main idea was to create a MOC related to winter, snow and ice. No strict rules, except splitting for active and static MOCs. Since joining EB and looking all those awesome crawlers and TT I wanted to create something you can drive outside. So winter is a perfect time for this as there are no mud or sand, just frozen water. I have created a sporty looking tracker. It is almost a C-model of 42006 set, with just like 4 extra parts and PF stuff. C-model idea comes quickly, once you disassemlbe 42006 set and observe the variety of parts it offers, however it limits the number of functions. Build process was fun and a bit challenging, as a space is a bit of an issue. The final result isn't as much as I expected. While model drives quickly on a carpet and flat surface it didn't perform as good on hard snow (slipping) or a softer one (not much of a torque). Anyway it was fun and no damage has been made, even the baterry box on the bottom didn't have a scratch. Specs: 30 studs in length (including spoiler ) and 20 studs in width 2 PF L-motors, one motor per tracks side PF IR-receiver V2 Standart BB Some more photos Instructions (photo sequence) available for download
  7. Hello everyone! As promised to many of you who have followed me over the last few months there are some pictures of my full Winter Village version 2014. The village consists of 24 baseplates, various buildings, over 28.500 pieces and over 120 minifigs. A lot of hard work but that led me in the recent exhibition of Lecco (19-20 July in Italy) a great satisfaction. Thanks for watching and for your comments! The complete gallery and other HD images:

    MOC: Catwoman's Snow Cat

    We're getting some crazy snow weather. What is a Catwoman to do to keep her paws dry and warm? Ride her motorcycle or convertible sports car? Catwoman's rides by dr_spock_888, on Flickr No way. She needs something with more traction that can get her through deep snow and take care of that pesky Batman. Presenting the Catwoman's Snow Cat. Catwoman's Snow Cat by dr_spock_888, on Flickr Batman doesn't stand a chance against the tail claws. Catwoman's Snow Cat by dr_spock_888, on Flickr It has a powerful engine and winch to pull out of deep sticky situations. Catwoman's Snow Cat by dr_spock_888, on Flickr It has independent suspension on each of the track to crawl over uneven terrain or 2x4 ice blocks. Off to Mr. Freeze's dinner party with the catch of the day.
  9. Hi All! You could figure it out from the title, i would like to build an artic truck. The idea came from the model of 2015: I will use 2 small sets: 9391 Mini Crane (218 parts) and 8259 Mini Bulldozer (165 parts). It is far from the 600 parts, but sometimes fewer parts is bigger challenge. UPDATE!!!! Sorry for late, I'm glad to introduce my C model of 9391 + 8259 an ARTIC TRUCK! It counts 342 pieces (80 pieces of track) from 383 pieces(118 pieces of track)(+extra parts). I used some of the extra parts. The truck has a lot of geared and non-geared funtions: Geared functions: Articulated steering front blade up/down boom up/down Non-gear funtion: boom rotating winch bed tipper openable bed tipper rear door Other attributes and details: seats imitation exhaust tips headlights on top and a small taillight the bed is covered, it doesn't loose the cargo Leftover parts: More pics soon! Thank you!

    [MOC] Snow White's wishing well

    This is my first creation after aproximately 5 years of not doing anything with my LEGO bricks (I kept buying sets regularly though). I had to clean up a lot of pieces and as you may see, some pieces are still a bit dirty Anyhow, I present to you all the famous wishing well from Snow White. It's pretty simple but I liked how it turned out "Wanna know a secret...? Promise not to tell...? ...We are standing by a wishing well..." And if you're wondering... Snow White's bow is just standing still there on her hair. Visit my flickr page for upcoming Disney MOCs and custom minifigures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/123167517@N03/

    Daydelon's City Wall

    My phase 3 build for the Wall category in AoM. My main goals for this build were to experiment with making walls with batter (sloped sections), hoardings (the wooden addittions to the tower), and larger buildings than what I generally build. The apothecary hinges open and has a full interior, and I think the windows right under the gables are a new design. Daydelon continued to expand: new businesses such as apothecaries, blacksmith's, and coopers were popping up throughout the city. And eventually the small stone wall didn't provide enough space or protection. As such, a new much larger stone wall strengthened with towers was built. You can see more pictures here: link All C&C appreciated

    Daydelon Stockade

    Here is my Phase 1 build for the wall category in AoM. When Daydelon was first settled, a few houses and a log stockade were all the protected it from the weather and wild beasts: Phases 2 and 3 coming very soon All Comments/Criticism welcome

    Making Maple Syrup

    I'd like to receive one UoP credit for manufacturing [Trade and Law]. Mattiusxavier suggested that I build a MOC showing maple syrup being made, I thought it was a great idea (my family actually makes our own Maple Syrup every year) and after finishing some other builds was able to make this. The process of making Maple Syrup is pretty simple, in the later winter/early spring you tap Maple trees and hang buckets to collect their sap. Then that sap is gathered and heated to evaporate much of the water from the sap and make syrup. There is a full interior in the cabin. Sugaring season is always a pleasant time in Mitgardia: whole families work together to tap the Maple trees and then gather the sap and boil it to make the delicous syrup that is commonly used for flavoring. Any Comments/Criticism welcome
  14. A mini snow groomer. Based on the Tucker Terra Sno-Cat 200 series, and also on a much larger MOC that I created last year. It was a major challenge getting down to 201 parts with this tracked vehicle especially as the track links took up the first 60 parts! One more part to remove!! I think we should have a Top Gear type rule where every additional part over 200 count as a negative point!!! Some LDD pictures below, real pictures to follow. It has front/rear steering (HOG doubles as the exhaust) All four tracks pivot. The pull/push lever at the back raises and lowers the snow plough The Big Brother

    The Gates of Orfdor

    Despite its remote location in the far north, Ofdor has faced determined attacks in days of old. However, the city has resisted every attack since the first erection of its mighty fortifications. The walls are wood pilings, set around a thick core of crushed and compacted stone. Outside, a moat encircles the city, broken only at the gates. The putlogs set into the top of the wall and jutting outwards serve as mounting points for hoardings, temporary scaffoldings that improve the defenders’ field of fire. The stone layer measures over 5 feet thick, running through the entire wall. Although lightly guarded in peacetime, the gates are always manned by members of the city guard. They quickly stop any intruders from entering the city. “Hands up!” Two of the city guard stand watch outside the gate. I'm thinking about getting involved with GoH, so I thought I'd post a recent MOC to see how much feedback I get. Larger sizes of these images are available on Flickr. Thanks for viewing!

    Fortress in the Snow

    Hello, I have posted a few pirate ships but nothing in this forum yet. This has to change! So, here we go with my first wintery MOC: The Fortress in the Snow. The wind is supposed to come from the left side... There is the Monty Python It's Man trying to get to the entrance of the castle: And behind a secret door (based on an old Adventure set) you will find the Yeti: My younger son has built the tree: Have a nice weekend, yours Sir (Captain) Braunsfeld - edit December 2014 - I would like to claim UoP credits for: Architecture wall techniques Landscape Design snow and ice studs up rocks and cliffs Anthropology Life in Mitgardia
  17. I'd like to receive UoP credit for: trees [Landscape Design], flowing water [Hydrology], and river scene [Geography]= 3 credits Fossgard river is famous for its many waterfalls, the most prominent of which is simply called Fossgard Falls. Many bridges span the river, and Infernum and Glorfindel are now crossing on one of the smaller bridges... "What do you think we're up against?" Infernum asked Glorfindel. "No idea, but I imagine we'll find out within several days. The border isn't far now," Glorfindel replied. "And whatever it is, we'll make it wish it had never come into Mitgardia." This was my first time building a waterfall that splits, and I also tried a new tree technique. All C&C welcome
  18. Fast forward a year, the village has become a town, and with the extra people, and extra trade, the guard must expand the keep up. The newbie is now an excellent swordsman, and has even earned a cloak for himself, befitting his skill level. His old comrade is hard at work training the new recruits. A fresh recruit, learning the basics of swordsmanship A spearman practicing under the watchful eye of his mentor Some recruits advance faster than others, nowhere is this more apparent than in the sparring ring Arm strength is very important, and this recruit is working hard to keep it up Every good Mitgardian has a pile of dangerous weapons somewhere, these are no different! An arhitect and a quartermaster talk over the plans for the new barracks I would also like to claim UoP credits for the following subjects: Landscape Design: Snow and Ice General Building: Minifigure Posing Military Science: Military Camp

    Valdrfell Stables

    Here is my Phase III Stables build for AoM. I'd like to gain credit for the following UoP certifications: roofing [Architecture], wall techniques [Architecture] (for the log cabin), roof rakes [Architecture], and raising livestock [Agriculture and Zoology]= 4 credits This was my first try using tilted walls (for the foundation of the tower), and I think they worked pretty well. This was also my first time building a log cabin using SNOT 1x1 round bricks. All three buildings have a full interior and all the doors/trapdoor function. And I tried using a dark grey background rather than white in hopes of having the snow show up better. Any feedback on that? Trained Great Wolves are in high demand and fortified stables have become common in Mitgardia. Valdrfell Stables is a fortified stables located in the Clan Lands of Mitgardia. The fortress has a stable inside, and a corral just outside to train the great wolves in. More pictures can be found here: link All C&C welcome
  20. Here is my phase II Stables build for AoM. This was a fun quick build that let me try building some more viking-esque buildings, and try a pine tree design that I haven't used before (credit for which goes to Blake Baer). The stables has a full interior and all the doors work. Great wolves are common in the clan lands of Mitgardia and some have been captured and tamed. Great wolves are smaller than a horse, but are quite strong and almost as fast. A wolf stable is quite similar to a normal horse stable: There are some more pictures here: link Any comments/criticism welcome, phase III will be coming before long
  21. The Antarctic Snow Cruiser was a vehicle designed late 1930's, intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica. It has a very interesting and adventurous history. Cruiser (known as Turtle), a very innovative vehicle, designed to operate at extreme conditions. Plane (known as Eagle), a Beechcraft D17 Staggerwing type airplane mounted on the roof of the cruiser. (To get the airplane on or off the Cruiser, a ramp of snow was to be built-up to meet the sloping aft deck of the "Turtle".) This set presents the Arctic Snow Cruiser with a correct minifig scale. All the parts connects fine, the whole vehicle is very stable to grant great playability. With tons of features the set offer a very good playing for everyone. You can find it at: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/46670 If you like it, please support it. Thank you.

    [MOC] Winter Christmas

    Hi Everyone! This is my first MOC here. Winter Christmas This in MOC Christmas with Power Functions. Technical: -Dimensions: Length: 112s Width: 48s -Extract 2x M motor 1x IR Receiver 1x Battery Box -Lamps 1x M motor 5x PF lights 1x IR Receiver 1x Battery Box Flickr Brickshelf Unusual situation Here I had some unpleasant situation, the transfer of work (unfortunately before the photo shoot). Movie: I invite you to comment :)
  24. My entry for the Winter Village IV Contest: "Theatre in the Park!" While shopping at the winter village, why not stay and watch a bit of legitimate theatre? UPDATED 12/16: Added more pictures of the vignette. Main View Stage Park/Bench Area Thanks for viewing my entry! LegoWookie, on Flickr
  25. I am in the finishing stages of aking a snowmobile MOC, and thought I'd show the current state of things before I go on holiday, and won't be able to build. I will however bring the model with me, to hopefully shoot a video of it performing on snow It is powered by two RC Buggy motors, through the standard RC Receiver Unit (Gives some range, compared to IR PF RC). It features double wishbone suspension on the skis, and they are steered through the RC Steering Unit. The entire belt/track has a BIG spring for suspension. The belt is driven by the two RC motors directly onto a large sprocket wheel. In it's current configuration it is set on the innermost (fastest) output of the motors, but it is built so that it can be changed fairly easily. I haven't tried this configuration yet, but the "slow" output propelled it nicely along the carpet, and given that the coefficient of friction between smoth plastic and snow is close to zero, I'm not worried. The skis are three studs wide, and made with an upside-down technic brick with tiles on top (bottom), to provide better steering. The skis are also sprung to keep them from digging into the snow, as well as give some flex when driving over obstacles. The steering features ackerman geometry, but that is more du to the available pieces used for suspension/steering, than an actual necessity The steering hadlebars are moved from the front output/input of the RC steering unit, through a lot of U-joints Hey, it works I fitted two 5x11 panels directly under the Receiver Unit, to prevent snow from entering the battery compartment.. (I might have to do something about the motors themselves as well...) There are some more pictures, as well as some VERY high resolution (finally got myself to buying a (cheap) lens for my EOS 50D) versions of the ones I've shown here at my Bricksafe for those interested. Now, I just hope there is some snow in my parents' garden when I get home for Christmas holiday!
