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.
Vorkosigan posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesI'm going to post several smaller MOCs together in this thread to avoid cluttering the forum. If you click through the image you should be able to see larger versions and more pics at my imgur album. First, this is my first attempt at a battle scene. The scenery of the small falls, stream, stream banks etc is a bit simple but it is 95% from one trip to a pick a brick wall. The wizard works his dark magic on one of the crownie knights. Next I have some modular additions to the King's Castle. First is a blacksmith. I took the black somewhat literally in the color of the walls, it sticks out a bit but I think it makes the smith look like a specially built more industrial part of the castle. I thought the guards could use a spot to relax up on the walls. Extending that idea, the next modular section is a mess hall. The last MOC is a barracks and training ground for the Lions / Crownies. This is my first attempt at a substantial tree.
Hey there, this is the chosen Minifigure with a big topic: The value of the lego castle sets. Not PPP value, no. Fun value, moc value, and Minifigure value. Let's hypothetically say that I have NO castle, fantasy, Viking or other medival sets of any kind. I wish to get into the theme, already loving some other themes. I get to the store, with enough money for any of the sets, but I only want to buy one. Which set should I get, with the best Minifigure/fun value? Or, say I'm a moccer. Which set would be best? Lastly, on a personal note, Dragon mountain or Kings castle?
