  1. Hello, I'm still alive ;-) My actual MOC... still in progress 20180302_124718 by Fabian Kraus, auf Flickr 20180302_124810_001 by Fabian Kraus, auf Flickr 20180215_170317 by Fabian Kraus, auf Flickr 20180206_203210 by Fabian Kraus, auf Flickr
  2. [MOC] Springald

    For the second stage of the Ukrbricks contest "The spring engine, as portrayed in medieval works, appears to have been of simple construction though it was no doubt an effective weapon. This engine is well depicted, together with the slip-hook which releases the arm or spring, when the latter is drawn back far enough to strike the butt-end of the javelin with sufficient force to project it."

  3. The Ruins of Lythell

    The day had started off as any other. The water was calm and the sky clear. Once out to their fishing grounds Leif called out to Isdir to drop the anchor and grab the nets. As the day dragged on storm clouds began to brew to the south. Luck, hopefully would be on their side and the storm would head towards the mainland. However only a few hours later, they were battling with the storm. Their small vessel being thrown around like a child's toy. Waves toward and crashed above them as they struggled to stay alive, almost as if they were caught in between a battle of gods. After a long rough night the water finally began to flatten, and they found themselves no longer being able to see the coast. Praying the gods were on their side now, Leif set sail for wherever fate would take him. He had heard the tales of the origins of the Elves. But that was all they had ever been. Tales. However that all changed when a towering arch rose from the horizon, A magnificent structure large enough to fit their boat through. A prancing horse with a rider top the somehow remain atop of the crumbling arch. behind it more structures rose from the seas depths, weathered but years of of harsh winds and high waves but still astounding in size and beauty. He heard Isdir mumble about the lost cities of the Elves, and I did not doubt him. Finally Leif gathered his wits and yelled to Isdir, we will camp on the rooftop over their, and then we shall sail south, just as the Elves claimed to have done. If they had truly found the Elves homeland, then who else knew what lay beyond? (bonus shot) Entry to Category B: A safe Haven. You can probably see I am no writer but I did not want this build to go with out a proper story. I built this back in October, and kept it to see if it would fit into the CCC. It didn't so I have just got round to post it on here now. I have lots of other builds ready to post on the guilds as well so watch out for them. The arch was difficult to make at first, but came together quick enough. the boat was also quite a challenge as it is my first. Hopefully you guys think it came out ok. The base was inspired by Jaapxaap and Legofin and I think it worked well here. Hope you enjoy and C&C needed
  4. This was the last of my Colossal Castle Contest entries (number 6). The Fantasy Fortress category really intrigued me, and I hoped to have more time to make an entry for it, but still had fun with this small citadel. The colorscheme was definitely inspired by John’s Gondolin build. You will also want to see John's CMF series, and Forest creation, which both give more detail about the Isle of Alnya. Not all Dwelfs (a smaller than average people with pointed ears who are skilled in craftsmanship and animal husbandry; they are also fun-loving to the point of being mischievous) live in the forest, and the nobility of the race often have beautiful palaces built. Such is the case for the Norya family, who have long dwelt in a fine citadel built on Posel Lake. Today Oryn and Ailas had visited The Green Goblet in Allanar Forest. Tanelia was scheduled to perform, and it had been a few months since they had last heard the minstrel's lovely melodies. And while they were there they also enjoyed some of Nyna's delicous dishes - even bringing some home for their father Arun. "You should have come along, Ryfon," called Ailas as they approached the dock. "Another day I would have been only too happy to visit The Green Goblet, but you know I am on duty now," replied Ryfon. He had served the Norya family for years, and was now the head of their men-at-arms. Oryn quickly winked at the soldier and stated, "Well, we brought some fresh treats back from Nyna, and gave her your regards. Rydel said to let you know you can hunt with him tomorrow if your old legs can still keep up." The three continued chattering about the trip as they docked the boat, and headed up the steps into the palace. More pictures on brickbuilt. I was hoping to get more built for the Safe Haven challenge, but unfortunately wasn't able to complete anything else. Still, it was a lot of fun creating Alyna with John, and I'm having just as much fun admiring all of the other new lands!
  5. When I first saw the sets of Nexon Knights I didn't think much of them until looking at the Main Characters. At first I thought Lego was trying to create something to replace Ninjago but after thinking about it it reminded me of an older Lego theme Knights kingdom. While you could say that this can't be true just because one happens to be more Sci-fi and the other more fantasy they do have share a couple of things in common. We already know Lego likes to reboot or recycle their old themes, like they did with Power Miners and Space Police so I thought that Nexon Knights might've been them trying to recycle Knights Kingdom. Lets look at a couple of the similarities that Nexon Knights shares with Knights Kingdom. Both series have a group of knights in both series each knight has a different color and unique crest with animals on them. in both themes all the knights are different styled helmets, in both of the themes the knights also have different names while these aren't all of the similarities in them you can understand where I'm going with this. Personally I think this was their second attempt at making knights kingdom, while most Lego castle themes didn't have many characters with personalities Knights kingdom seemed to try and create unique individual characters just like the characters in Nexon Knights. However I haven't seen much people talking about Nexon Knights being a reboot to Knights Kingdom or having any sort of relation to it, maybe Nexon Knights could've just been created without them even thinking about Knights kingdom and I might just be trying to connect them just because of the couple of things they share do you think this is just a coincidence or did Lego recycle their old theme in a completely new and interesting theme
  6. The Gateway

    This is a project I started in 2011 or 2012, spent about a year-and-a-half building (I was in college at the time, and my summers were spent working away from home), and didn't photograph until spring of 2016. I've obviously been sitting on the images for a while, telling myself I would clean them up, but now I just want to be done with it, especially since I'm in the process of demolishing it. I think I intended to enter this into a CCC, or tie it to an event on GoH, but never had the time to finish it for any deadlines, and wasn't sure if the protracted building schedule would be a disqualifier. The whole scene sits on 15-32x32 plates, and 8-16x32 with 1-16x16, for a total footprint of 176x112. It takes two people and a heavy piece of plywood just to carry it, and to get it through doors requires a third to make sure it doesn't slide off the plywood when it gets tilted sideways. I couldn't even venture a guess at the piece count, but it sure weighs a lot, and it's very difficult to photograph. Anyway, here it is now: an envoy from the Green Dragon faction meeting with the Crownie King at a lesser gate in their grandest city. An overall view from the corner. A side-street and terrace. An overview from the opposite corner. A little stream below the walls. If you want to see anything in particular closer up, just tell me. I probably have a picture of it, I just didn't bother to upload it yet.
  7. Lord Gerard is in a hurry with a report about the annual general military review meeting of all the soldiers in the capital of the Kingdom. Meanwhile, King Edric accepts the work of a blacksmith - sharpened sword, forged from high-grade steel.

  8. Hi Folks, I recently finished my 1st MOC ever and would like to present it here. I hope there are some of you who still enjoy looking at walls in strange angles :-) The cartoony style is done by purpose and I didn't aim for realism. The Front - Fantasy medieval like house front - Lego MOC by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr It features some twisted, huge trees, discoloured bricks and taxing techniques. I'm so glad it is finally finished. It was a little bit to tall for a first MOC. I even planed to build a hill as a socket and a forest, too. But I totally underestimated size and weight. I tried to do it mostly by myself without looking at other MOCs and so It took me ages to fiddle out all thouse angles and techniques. The Front - Lego MOC of a fantasy medieval house front by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr There are no half attached bricks or plates. All the angles were done using hinges. MOC1c by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr Cheers!
  9. MOC: Europa Castle

    A few years back I did a small vignette based on the cancelled Europa theme; a photo can be seen here. Now, here is most likely the main attraction to the theme: Europa Castle The castle is heavily based off the one in the promotional image, albeit with a few modern flourishes. The castle is guarded by three Royal Guards, dressed in white uniforms with red epaulettes and bicornes. A drawbridge spans a small moat, and edelweiss grow wild by the rocky castle slopes. The back of the castle can be opened up to reveal a detailed interior. The lower floor has two suits of armor standing guard, while the upper floor features the Crown Prince's throne room and a ceremonial sword and bicorne for inspecting the Royal forces. The Crown Prince is accompanied in the throne room by his Princess consort. A bird's-eye view of the castle grounds. In the courtyard are two marble fountains flourished with bubbling waters. A demonstration of the drawbridge. A longer one will be constructed some time in the foreseeable future. That's all for now. In the future, I intend to construct more buildings related to the theme, along with soldiers and hopefully the Europa State Railway. In the mean time, feel free to comment and reply. Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:
  10. Tower of Lothern

    Lothern is the greatest city of Ulthuan. Situated within Eataine, Lothern is the political capital city. Human merchants are allowed to trade here and the city has been and is a busy centre of international trade. This tower one of countless outposts in the vicinty of Lothern. Every year a wanted to take part in CCC, but something always prevent me. This time I did it. As I'm faithful admirer of Dwarfs, it was hard emotionaly to build elvish MOC. But Art is stronger than war. As usual, inspired by Warhammer FB and a lot of cool arts from internet.

  11. Eryos Castle

    After years of trading, Prince Kevin the Navigator earned enough to buy a small island on the coast of Avalonia. Eryos Castle is his residence as well as his trading post, constructed on the island and surrounding land. The castle includes a lighthouse and a dock for his ship, the "Compass." Eryos Caslte by KevinyWu, on Flickr Eryos Castle by KevinyWu, on Flickr Eryos castle is protected by an outer wall, and is connected to the islands on a network of bridges. Eryos Castle, Outer Wall by KevinyWu, on Flickr The castle can also be accessed from the beach. Eryos Castle, Beach Stairs by KevinyWu, on Flickr The castle contains a furnished interior, with three rooms (and hopefully four, after I get the right pieces to change design of the Tudor-style room). Eryos Castle, Library by KevinyWu, on Flickr Eryos Castle, Throne Room by KevinyWu, on Flickr Eryos Castle, Dining Hall by KevinyWu, on Flickr The cave has an entrance that leads to the trading storage. Eryos Castle, Cave Storage by KevinyWu, on Flickr This is my first ever large MOC, after making my first orders on Bricklink! It is built on four 48x48 baseplates which can be easily separated into many sections. I built this mostly over the summer and Thanksgiving break, but didn't have time to post it due to high school. Huge thanks to all the castle builders on Eurobricks for making great MOCs that inspired me. There are many things I would change if I were to do this again, so criticism is welcomed! More pictures are available on my Flickr Album

  13. I've been offline for ages, and thought what better way to break my hiatus than with 24 consecutive days of posting?! And it's December 1st! Well, at least here in Australia it is. My kids have got their official Lego Advent Calendars, but what's a castle fan to do? Since there's been no castle theme for years I decided to make my own Advent Calendar. And because I'm such a shameless Viking enthusiast, it's going to be a Viking one! Now much like the 2008 "Castle" and 2010 "Kingdoms" Advent Calendars (sets 7979 and 7952), mine isn't terribly Christmassy. They were really just an excuse to get a bunch of minifigs and minibuilds, and that's perfectly fine with me! Mine will just fit in with the ongoing efforts towards my Viking Village display. So without further ado, let's kick things off with: DAY 1 - Berserker Perhaps a bit of an angry start to the season, or maybe he's just stressed about spending the holidays with the in-laws? DAY 2 - Woodchopping Ah, now the Berserker has something to do with his axes! *CHOP CHOP* DAY 3 - Farm boy This young lad has the eggcellent job of collecting eggs! Ah, I crack myself up... no more silly yolks please... Day 4 - Toy boat When he's not working on the farm, the young lad enjoys playing with his toy boat. Day 5 - Old woodcarver An old villager carves wooden figures - maybe statues of the Norse gods? Day 6 - Campfire A simple build technique that's been done before, but now our hungry woodcarver can cook himself up a tasty meal! Day 7 - Blacksmith I think it's fair to say that no Lego Castle line is complete without a blacksmith! Day 8 - Anvil and grindstone Because the smith needs somewhere to work his elemental magic, doesn't he? Day 9 - Maiden Some traditional Scandinavian hospitality as this young maiden welcomes visitors to the village with some delicious freshly baked bread! Day 10 - Barrel o' mead The hospitality doesn't stop at bread! Skål! Day 11 - Pig farmer Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Day 12 - Haystack A very, very simple build today - just three bricks! But you can stick the underside of a brick onto the end of the pitchfork. So at least it gives yesterday's farmer something to do besides chase that pig around all day! Day 13 - Apiary Hooray, more work for the farmer to do! A couple of beehives (which I made before the new beehive element was unveiled!) Day 14 - Huscarl Personal retainer and bodyguard to the Jarl, he takes his work very seriously. Day 15 - Banner stand Only five parts in this simple build, but I think it looks pretty cute. Plus it gives the huscarl something to stand next to so he can feel important! Day 16 - Cheese table More hospitality and winter feasting with a table full of interesting chesses. Day 17 - Noblewoman One of my custom prints, the noblewoman carries the household keys on her belt. Her cat makes sure the cheese table remains rat-free! Day 18 - Runestone A stone raised as a marker, inscribed with pictures and runes telling of great deeds and the like. If this were a real official Lego set, I'd like to see the surfaces of sloped bricks printed with the inscription! Day 19 - Sacred tree A bit small to be a mighty oak tree, but nevertheless it's part of a sacred grove in the forest outside our viking village. Some wild herbs and a mushroom grow in its shade. Day 20 - Sage And who worships in the sacred grove? Who collects the wild medicinal herbs? The village sage does! Day 21 - Jarl's weapon rack It's a rack. For weapons. Belonging to the Jarl. Day 22 - Jarl's armour rack It's another rack. For... oh you can figure it out! Day 23 - Jarl's throne Sitting. The great leveler. From the mightiest pharaoh to the lowliest peasant, who doesn’t enjoy a good sit? Day 24 - The Jarl Who didn't see this coming after the past few days?! A good jarl would rule not by force, but with the support of his followers. He is a strong leader, an inspirational speaker, and a fierce warrior; generous with his food, drink, and coin.
  14. House Stonmer of Lenfald - Noble Houses of Roawia House Stonmer is one of the younger houses of Roawia. The Lords of Stonmer moved their estate from Loreos to Lenfald only a few generations ago. While their loyalty to Lenfald is not in question, they still keep with the traditions of their former home province: their house colours are read and gold their emblem is the Loreesi gilded falcon. Their current seat is at Stonmer Manor, in Northern Lenfald only a few miles from the border to Garheim. The Lords of Stonmer only rule over 4 villages and their small estate, but trade with Garheim made them relatively rich and important nonetheless: the regions is rich in fish and is mostly forested, with wood being their major export products.

  15. MOC - Snow White Cottage

    My LEGO version of the Snow White and the 7 dwarfs cottage (based on Thomas Kinkade depiction). I watched the movie when I was a kid and I vividly remember how I wanted to live in a cottage in the woods after seeing this one! Although I rushed the build a bit, it was fun to build because I haven't build something "castle" for a long time and I wanted to try some new stuff like the roof or the newer shades of greens or play around with the vegetation using odd pieces and parts. Still some things didn't came out as I planned but I wanted to finish this to make room for other projects. Thanks to Markus for coming everyday to my desk and give me some hints and motivation! :D Hope you guys like it! Just like a doll's house
  16. Cleaning out my stash of LEGO, hoping to send them off to a good home where someone will actually build them rather than sit around in a box for a few years. If interest, please pm me and we can talk. For Sale: 10197 Modular Fire Brigade - MISB 10211 Modular Grand Emporium - MISB 10217 Harry Potter Diagon Alley - MISB 10193 Medieval Market Village - MISB Elves: 41071 Aira's Creative Workshop - MISB 41072 Nadia's Spa Secret - MISB 40173: Nadia's Epic Adventure Ship - MISB 41074: Azari and Magical Bakery - MISB 41075: The Elve's treetop hideaway -MISB 41076: Farran and the Crystal Hollow - MISB 41052 Ariel's Magical Kiss - MISB I also have some collectible minifigure doubles from series 11- 16. Here's a picture for an idea of the extent of it, and to show the condition. The modular's, and the harry potter & medieval market village are all still in the boxes Lego shipped them to me in. In an ideal world, I'd love to sell any two of those sets to someone because I could just reship in those boxes, knowing they are sturdy enough to send them in.
  17. [MOC] Wolf's Watch

    So... I'm not the world's biggest believer in enormous, Windsor-scale castles. Call me unambitious, but A) I like to design something that might be in the realm (for me) of building one day (given my finances, even small MOCs are ridiculously tough to swing), and B) I like isolated, somewhat forlorn fortresses located in the wilderness, as opposed to city-encircling mega-citadels. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to build the starter keep from the Kingdom's and Castles PC game, and while I was happy with the final result, I didn't like that it was based on someone else's IP - I wanted a "castle of my own," so to speak. So, three days ago, I started putting together Wolf's Watch. Originally, I didn't plan on doing anything nearly this ambitious, but the project kind of expanded as I built - I wanted to add a dungeon, and then once I had raised the keep up, it needed additional terrain to give the elevation context. But I am very happy with the final design - it really encompasses the heart of what I was shooting for: an English/Welsh-style small castle with heavy play features and a (relatively) low part count (okay, 5,000 isn't low, but when you're talking about projects like this, you can quickly see the numbers explode into the tens of thousands :P). First, some overview shots of the exterior: The keep itself features three floors, plus an accessible roof. The top two floors lift out over the first (which has a kitchen inside, but I didn't bother taking a picture of it since Bluerender's interior lighting is so shoddy), and are accessed via a swinging side panel. The second floor is a reception room which will showcase a few suits of armor and a throne (not going to cram the suits into the digital model); the third is the King's (and I say "King's," but I never intended this to be a full time royal residence - I am thinking more along the lines of a Baron or poor Viscount) bedroom, and features a bed, chamber pot, crown, fireplace, tea kettle, and so on. The castle has an extensive subterranean area which has limited access via the keep lifting up. Unfortunately, as mentioned previously, Bluerender's lighting for this kind of thing is downright poor. However, the left-hand side of the underground section is an area of haunted caves, with still drip pools, stalactites, stalagmites, and so on. The right side is a split scene, with two jail cells and a brick-built spiral staircase, plus the Forgotten King's Tomb. I intended for the tomb to be accessed via the caverns and not the stairs directly (some imagination is necessary), to give the basement a kind of adventurous, exploration-oriented design that hearkens back to Taran and Eilonwy mucking around under Spiral Castle in The Book of Three. The only independent non-castle-related structure within the outer wall is a blacksmith. I ripped off the mill wheel-powered auto-hammer design from 6918. The bone is part of some exterior scenicking which, along with a buried skull, is intended to represent a fossilized beast. There are hints of the caverns embedded in the sides elsewhere on the model. And that's pretty much it! As always, any questions, comments or critiques are most welcome!
  18. Theramore Castle by Mark E., on Flickr Long time absent from Eurobricks! Thankfully I have some new stuff to share with you guys! Built in just over six months and using more than 55,600 pieces, Theramore Castle is my largest creation so far in my LEGO building experience. It's definitely not my landscape-focused norm, but it was a fantastic and difficult challenge to complete it. This model is built as closely as possible to the actual Theramore Castle in the World of Warcraft Video Game. Sorry the pictures aren't the highest quality. This MOC was so large that it was very hard to photograph! Thanks for viewing and have a great day!

  19. Peter from Germany

    Hi Guys, I am Peter from Germany. I collect Castle theme Legos, and this is why I register here. I am looking for Lego Castle 6073 and 6074 sets in unopened (Sealed, MISB) state. If you have it, please contact me. My mail: bajusz79 at yahoo dot com Thanks Peter
  20. [MDC]-The Wizards Tower

    This was the idea that turned into my witches tower ideas project (which won't make the 100 mark but I can learn from my failure so its still good) I thought I would polish it and share it. I decided to make the witches tower and submit that to lego ideas instead( here ) as this one is a bit on the big side and I wanted to focus more on the landscaping. As with the witch's tower is is open on the back to show the interior which is out fitted with a lounge/dining room, sleeping chamber, lab and cell ,there is also a swamp out front. Thanks for looking. Can a mod change Wizards to Wizard's? please?
  21. The Chronicles of Hesperia Volume 1: The Sky Man Chapter 5: Stopping at Tíre Keep The Previous Chapters: Henjin Quilones stepped out of the elvish rowboat and walked up the dock towards the tower. Though it was only early evening, the flames were already roaring from the beacon post at its top, ready to ward any passing ship away from the dangerous shoals that lined the coast of the island. Tíre Keep, with its lighthouse, was one of the most important strongholds of Avalonia, and one of the farthest, if not the farthest, west, a final stopping point for food and supplies for any Avalonian ship sailing out into the Great Western Ocean. His ship, or rather, Galaria's ship, was moored deeper out to sea, past where the rocks would cause a danger to the fragile wooden planking of a ship's hull. He had been sent ashore to this abode of humans, since he, a human, would not look so out of place as one of the elvish exiles on board the Nagra Luca, or Black Wolf in the common speech of Historica. His brother, Bu'kanjin, or one of their druid warrior companions, could also have been sent, but Henjin had volunteered to come alone to broker a deal for supplies sufficient for an ocean crossing. Of gold they had enough, if pressed, to buy everything they needed and more, but then they would have nothing when they reached the shores of some distant land; Henjin's powers of persuasion had become legendary among his friends, and they all agreed that he would be the best to negotiate a favorable bargain for them. Henjin sighed as he gazed up at the tall tower, its six sides facing every direction. He did not know when they would be back in civilized lands again. Galaria had taken it into her head to travel the world after her father had sentenced her to exile, and she had no desire to stay around the continent of Historica. She had been granted a Historican Title of Nobility for her actions in the war with Raavage, same as Henjin, and would thus find a warm welcome wherever the Ruler of Historica was revered, but she wanted to leave, to see how people lived in other lands. Henjin had agreed to go with her, as he found something about the green-haired elf maiden hopelessly attractive. Bu'kanjin felt similarly towards Yavenna, Galaria's trusted lieutenant among the wolf riders, as well, and had needed little persuasion to join his brother. The wolves. Skoll, the white wolf that was now his, along with Biryuk, who was Bu'kanjin's mount, Laika, who was Galaria's, and the other wolfsteeds of Galaria's band, was in the hold of the Nagra Luca, undoubtedly very unhappy and seasick. Henjin had to get enough meat to feed them, in addition to everything else they needed. The gold in his pouch needed to go a long way. As he walked towards the small door set in the wall, he observed a man fishing from the rocks. "Greetings, sir," he said. "Where might I find the lord of this keep?" The man turned from his fishing with a sigh, saying, "The fish are not biting so far today, I am afraid; I blame the weather. It has been too hot, unseasonably so. We need some rain, that's what we need, rain." "If I could send you rain, sir, I would," said Henjin. "Now, where might I find the lord?" "Right here, my good sir," smiled the man. "I am Sir Kravek, Baron of Tíre Keep, Ruler of the Isle of Tíre, Lord Councillor of Avalonia. How may I be of service to a traveler such as yourself?" "My thanks, Sir Kravek. My name is Sir Henjin Quilones, Knight of Historica. My friends and I need sufficient food and supplies to sail across the Great Western Ocean." "I see. Welcome, Sir Henjin. Well, you have come to the right place. Now, that ship of yours anchored off in my harbor is clearly elvish, or I am an orc, so am I to assume that you stole it, or are your companions elves?" "Yes, Sir Kravek, they are elves, as well as men. And one orc, a refugee that we picked up along the way. Not more than eighteen all told, plus beasts." "Destination? Unknown, I suppose? Well, Sir Henjin, let us step into my office, where we can discuss matters more deeply. I have what you need, including charts and maps, and a suggestion for a destination, a place sure to welcome a motley collection of humans, elves, orcs, and beasts, whose existence has been reported to me by sailors coming through. You, in your turn, will give me assistance (and gold, I am sure). Come, come, this way." ____________________________________________________________ ......................................................................................................................... Thanks for looking, and C&C welcome! This has been posted at long last, my entry to the Summer Joust with @TitusV and @The Maestro. If you look closely at the last picture you might be able to see them there. The hexagonal nature of the tower was a challenge, but it worked out pretty well, I thought. My wife, typically no fan of LEGO, thought that this was my best build, and was genuinely sad when I took it apart. It should be fairly clear where my story is going, what with a 5th Anniversary Challenge deadline just over a month away...
  22. Steinn Fortress

    Micro castles are always something I enjoy building, and this one was especially fun due to being set in the winter. I incorporated quite a few technic parts into the castle itself and was really pleased with how well they fit in. One of Mitgardia's stronger citadels, Steinn Fortress is built into Mount Mitgard and features many soaring towers. Even during the Algus invasion, Steinn Fortress wasn't breached. More images on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, comments and criticism always welcome
  23. Hi All, After 2 years of non-castle building I've finally had time and inspiration to do a small castle build - Woodsford Hold. For this build I've decided to go classic with the stronghold belonging to a crusader knight's lord, some forestmen passing through (and one up to mischief) and some devious black falcon knights observing from the trees. I've also included some internal lighting so that the stained glass windows show up properly. Feedback welcome. Thanks, More photos in my flickr album
  24. "A Summer's Day" (My first!)

    Hello all! I just created this account after two-ish years of lurking. I have created my first MOC, and I wanted to share with you all to get some tips on how to better execute my visions. Well, let's get to it! Thank you for looking, and I appreciate any feedback! Also anything I can do to make this post formatted better, please do tell. The edited picture of the my castle, trying to pull off the look I see everyone here doing with the edit. Did I pull it off? I enjoyed creating the irregular base, think I'll do that again for the next. Thinking if I go three plates deep, then I can save the top layer for more details, like the worn path by the entrance. Would like to try a framed base I see alot on here as well. A view of the top of the castle. Redesigned this a few times untill I got it more how I liked. Still not 100% happy with it, but I think that's normal, ha. A relaxing guard. Shot of the brickwork mostly. I struggled to find a happy amount of detail to add while using my parts present. It is the best work I've done so far (as it's my first), but feels like there is lots of room for improvement. Some happy citizens enjoy the nice day. Not a great shot of the apple tree, but best I took. I really wanted to build a tree, even if it is to close to the wall. I really enjoyed making it, and plan on doing much more. More of a zoomed out shot.
