I've seen a few great Discworld creations on this forum, especially from L-Space, as well as around the web, but all the ones for the Ankh Morpork City Watch have been quite small and a bit outdated in terms of pieces and availability. I decided to make myself a large version of the Watch House at Pseudopolis Yard, or the City Watch headquarters, earlier this year, but haven't got around to posting the photos yet. For those unaware of the Discworld books, the City Watch is a send-up of the modern police force, living and working in Ankh Morpork, a thriving multicultural metropolis with people from every species on the Disc there. As you might guess, the Disc is the world. It's flat. Like a disc. There's a sort of renaissance-y/victorian/steampunk aesthetic. For those who are aware of Discworld... well, this should be a treat. There's a lot of named characters and references in the build, as well as a few who aren't typically associated with the watch in some of the little vignettes added onto the sides. Anyway, photos... Wide view of the entire model. Wide shot of the back of the model/interior of the Watch House (floors are fully removable!) Side view. Outside the main gates - the Guild of Fools, Otto Chriek, and wizards from the Unseen University. More of the streets. Sir Sam Vimes and his family (along with Mr A E Pessimal) in his office. Because there's a basement level, and so the street is raised, there are three small vignettes built into the side of the model to give it some variation. Death comes visiting. Granny Weatherwax, Magrat Garlick, and Nanny Ogg, heroines of the Witches books. Sir Terry Pratchett himself, author and creator of the Discworld, with his assistant Rob. For anyone who'd like to see the full scale and detail of this build, with details, there's a full imgur album here, in higher resolution and annotated. There's also a youtube video with annotations more specifically pointing to and labelling each of the characters.Thanks for looking!
