    The famous mage Hokus returns from shopping with his apprentice Pokus: ... and this is the hut they apparently live in: (I found the little house not remembering that I had built it...)
  2. [Western] Buffalos

    Hi there, last weekend I was able to present my buffalos at BrickMania Antwerpen. They came across quite well.
  3. Western MOC: Confederate Fort

    Usually people go for a cavalry fort and have those blue guys all over the place. This one is different: This is a confederate fort. This fort will be shown as part of the Western Layout in BrickMania Antwerpen next month! C&C Welcome!
  4. A more elaborate Western House

    Hello, moving on with the development of Western City Houses: Now this house has been inspired by the lego ideas project of Marshal Banana. However, my version is more simplified - more Captain-Braunsfeld-ish. So, here you see the rich banker in his house. And below his wife.... fiancee.... mistress....? Enjoy the weekend!
  5. Pontelli Platoon

    Asma April, Mayor of Pontelli has decreed that more troops are required to protect the city. (The platoon has been registered.)
  6. BoBS CMF - Series 8

    Here are some of my favourite characters of BoBS so far: .... he is waiting for his storyline to continue... ... still searching for the Highwayman. ... I missed the Weelond Octoberfest this year. Pity. ... one of my favourite characters. ... also waiting for the story to continue... (and no, this is not the Highwayman) Have a nice weekend! (Now I need to go back to work on my Western City)
  7. MOC - Western Laundry Shop

    Comic books have told me that there is a Chinese laundry in every Western City. So, here we go: Thanks for watching!
  8. Some More Western Houses

    You have seen the saloon and other stuff. Now, here are more western houses: The Sherriff is not sleeping - just resting! I don't know what she had said to him... And this is going to be the train station: Next train expected at noon. C&C welcome! (pictures of the city houses so far can be found on flickr)
  9. Western: A New Saloon

    Hi, here's my take at a saloon: The Lady is shocked at the sight of the gunslinger leaving the saloon... Inside some guys are playing poker... Have a nice weekend, thanks for watching! (larger pictures and other Western motives in my flickr album).
  10. The Dalton Brothers

    Let's have a go at the famous Dalton Brothers: As you know, they usually end up in prison: C&C Welcome! .. adding some more: (as you can see I am running out of the original heads...) ... the "carrot version".
  11. The Bagpipe Factory in Pontelli

    Pontelli's Mayor, Lady Asma April, had emphasized the importance of tradition. Hence a new bagpipe factory has opened in Pontelli to produce a famous Eslandolean traditional instrument: the bagpipe. The factory itself is quite large. On a sunny day most workers prefer to carry out their tasks outside the factory buildings. The exact production recipe for bagpipes is, of course, a secret. However, it is clear that wood is required to prepare the pipes. And sheep skins are used to create the bags, which are then painted. The pipes are also painted in black. Hence the saying "I see a brown pipe and I want it painted black." All this is part of Lady Asma's aim to make Pontelli proud again. C&C welcome. (And you will never guess where I spent my holidays )
  12. Amongst the wonders of Brickwall Memorial Park the visitor finds the beautiful Crystal Caves. At several times a day the sun shines into the caves and makes the crystals, stalagtites, stalagmites, andyounameit glitter and explode with light. In any case the Brickwall Memorial Park is the attraction to see when you come to Fuerto Unido! C&C welcome!
  13. Sauron Renovates: The New Black Gate

    A happy day for Mordor! The renovation of the "Black Gate" has paid off. Sauron is happy to receive the second prize of this year's "House and Garden Challenge". Behold the jury as they are passing the prize cup and some nice Gondorian flowers to Sauron's mouth. I am always surprised about the things that Tolkien did not tell us... Here is the "New Black Gate" without the minifigs: Constructive criticism is welcome.
  14. Old Fashioned Racing Cars

    Hi there, some of you may know me as contributor to mostly GoH and BoBS, but I took the liberty to create some "fantasy old fashioned racing cars": (old and new gray clashes a bit but pls note the horn!) .. and these made me think of Mario Cart... Has somebody used the trash bins before? I hope you like these automobiles. A few more pics can be found on flickr. Constructive criticism is welcome!
  15. Pontelli's football team has arrived at Trador. The team had agreed to come uniformly dressed ("I'll be wearing green - you too?") which has turned out as a mixture of greenish Eslandolean uniforms. But Oswald Brickinson is undeterred as always ("I hope that some of my boys will at least be putting their weapons aside while we play.") They are practising in the park of Trador - next to the new and extravagant fountain. Everyone is quite happy as they could get away from Asma April for some time. Every player is still running after the ball and no tactics were visible when they played at the fountain. As Brickinson explained: "We are after a lucky punch. Or goal or what the name was. And then the Gods may help us. This is our approach to winning!" Reporter: "Do you favour 4-3-3 over 4-4-2?" Brickinson: "What? Well, I like something that goes 7:1." C&C Welcome - and now I need to register this somewhere, right?

He could not understand that he had not found anything." Lady de Summer replied: "He must have felt quite dejected." "Yes, he must have." "So, my dear Captain, I am still waiting to hear how you got into the possession of this fine model of the 8 Provinces." "Right, right, Mylady. I am owing you the answer. But I will get to it in a minute." He paused to eat the rest of the cookie he was holding. "Well, I bought it at a flea market". "What?" "You heard right. You see, the Red Fandango, or Flynn Stewart - that was his real name - had to admit that he had failed. There was no wreck of the 8 Provinces, no treasure, nothing - just a lot of money spent. His failure went around as a rumour or story told in bars and taverns in every Corrington port." "And?" "Apparently Flynn Stewart got so angry, he destroyed two of the models." "Oh dear!" "Yes, he did. But then he saved the last one." "And?" "He sold it at a flea market. To make some money, maybe to buy himself another drink." "And?" "And I bought it. Simple as that. Bit of a long story, though, ma'am. You look agitated! Did I say something wrong? " Lady de Summer produced a pistol: "Quite the contrary, my dear Captain. You just said what I had hoped to hear." "Hand me the model of the 8 Provinces!" "But why...?" "Just do as you are told!" Captain Cookie took the model ship and carefully moved it towards Lady de Summer. She glanced at it briefly, opened the hull and smiled with relief. "What did you seek?" "The maps, my dear Captain, the three maps. And they are all here, in the remaining model. Fine, fine." "But the maps are worthless, ma'am." "So it may seem. But there was something in your story that I have heard a long time ago." "What was it?" "The second map had partly been drowned in some blueberry juice." "And?" "Well, isn't that obvious? That blueberry juice looked just like the colour of the sea on the map." "And?" "And so shape of the island where the 8 Provinces sank was altered - the Red Fandango was looking for the wrong island." "And?" "If you clean the map carefully, you will see what the treasure island really looks like. And you will find it. Or rather, I will." "If you know all these details about the juice and the modified maps, you must have heard about the model ships and maps before." "You are right, my dear Captain. If I may re-introduce myself: I am Angelina Lancaster - my family has owned the second ship. But I must leave you now, I already said too much." "Thanks for the dinner and the excellent wine." "A pleasure, Mylady." Captain Cookie waited until Lady de Summer had left with her prize. Then he sat back down again, with a sigh of relief and helped himself to another glass of wine. "That was hard work, but it worked out like I had hoped." He took a sip. After a while he looked at the Norwegian Blue again and the parrot stared back at him. "Angelina", the Norwegian Blue croaked. "Pretty bird", Captain Cookie muttered to himself. "Pretty bird." [END OF PART 1] I hope you've enjoyed the story so far. And let's see what the future will bring. A number of builds have been used to create the story up to this point. And some things I have built expecially for the story weren't used in the end... I'd like to thank Kai NRG and Garmadon for their excellent support. Their MOCs made the story shine. Could be a good idea to extend the collaboration when it comes to PART 2. C&C welcome!
  17. Lost at Sea

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 5th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 6th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 7th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 8th Chapter (yes, this is where you are) Captain Cookie continued: At first it seemed that nobody had survived. But then there was a tiny figure amidst the fury of the wild ocean, holding on to an oar. Just one? Lady de Summer asked. Who was the survivor? The first mate, Mr. Errol. Although badly injured he managed to stay afloat and alive. What happened to Mr. Errol? Well, he did make it to some small settlement on the nearby island. Some landlord took care of him and gave him a room where he could rest and try to recover from his injuries. Mr Errol claimed to have been on an Oleon fishing boat and that he was washed overboard by a huge wave during the storm. He did not say a single word about the "8 Provinces" as he felt he could trust noone. His recovery, sadly, came to a halt and his condition got worse. Mr Errol began to see that he would meet his fate there and then. Having been an excellent carver and craftsman he asked for knives, wood and stuff - and he started to create the three models of the "8 Provinces", each in a different colour. I don't know how and where he got hold of the three different maps but he managed to hide them inside the small ships. Apparently he planned to send the model ships to his three brothers, but that could only be assumed as he died from yellow fever before he could ship the ships. After the only human survivor had died, nobody knew what happened to the "8 Provinces". She was considered "lost at sea". She became a rumour, a myth, a goodnight-story for children. The subject of endless speculations of what had happened to her and her silver treasure. What happened to the three ships after Mr Errol had died? Lady de Summer asked. Well, the landlord sold them to cover for the funeral and his expenses. And the brown ship was purchased by a man called Granger Stewart. He was the Red Fandango's grandfather. Years later, the Red Fandango found the ship in the attic and discovered that there was a map. Maybe there was some other hint included that gave him the idea to search for the other two ships. Also there must have been some written account of what had happened to the "8 Provinces". And what did the Red Fandango do next? [to be continued]
  18. Fight to the Death

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 5th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 6th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 7th Chapter Captain Cookie continued: The weather was turning worse by the minute. A terrifying storm had come and the pirates were in hot pursuit of the silver-loaded 8 Provinces: De Ruyter had his men load the guns but the fast pirate ship was moving carefully not to fall prey to the 8 Provinces broadsides. The pirates were using their guns to shoot at sails and rigging... .. but then finally Paul de Ruyter had carried out the perfect manoevre and the 8 Provinces was ready to send the pirates to the bottom of the sea. .. all guns were fired ... ... the 8 Provinces delivered a devastating broadside. The pirate ship was severely damaged and began to sink - but the evil gang of cutthroats was still able to fight back one more time. With a lucky strike they hit the fore-mast of the galleon. It came down with the crash of thunder, rendering the 8 Provinces almost immovable and causing her to heel. Water poored in through the open gunports .... the 8 Provinces was doomed. And so were the pirates... They went down and not a single evil soul survived. "And the 8 Provinces?" Lady de Summer asked. She sank only minutes later. "Did anybody survive?" [to be continued] C&C Welcome
  19. Captain Cookie loves to stop by at Puerto Desafio to purchase a fresh supply of eponymous cookies. "George's Pastry Shop" is the place the adventurous traveller is looking for when it comes to pastry: George's little helpers are scurrying around the shop and the workshop area. George and the happy customers remain undeterred. The shop owner himself is a tall but quiet guy with a rather large nose (nobody would dare to mention this fact in fear of their cookie supply being cut off) who hardly ever says a word. The dough used for the many cakes produced here is of finest brickworld quality. Customers also treasure the wonderful multi-coloured sugar coatings. And although Captain Cookie has already paid a small fortune for his bag of cookies, he feels obliged to give a large tip to one of George's co-workers, as always. Despite the fact that - amongst other ingredients - large quantities of bananas are delived to the shop everyday, banana cakes are not available for sale. As mentioned before the peckish traveller can find "George's Pastry Shop" in Puerto Desafio, not far from the harbour, right in the middle of Brickwall-Jones-Avenue. C&C welcome.
  20. The Pirate Ship

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 5th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 6th Chapter Captain Cookie continued: Paul de Ruyter glanced through his spyglass. "Curses" he muttered to himself. A really mean gang of cutthroats was chasing the "8 Provinces". If there was an "evil pirate contest" these guys would surely have won. "Evil pirates and the weather is turning bad", Captain de Ruyter said to himself. "Can this day get worse?" It could. (to be continued)
  21. The 8 Provinces

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 5th Chapter Captain Cookie continued: The "8 Provinces" was an Eslandolean ship some 50 years ago - aptly named after the 8 Provinces of Eslandola. One fine autumn day she was sailing home to Eslandola - and everyone was in a good mood. The captain, Paul de Ruyter, was famous and experienced. His crew was fine and well trained. And he had a fine first mate he could trust - Mr. Errol. And trust was needed for the "8 Provinces" was carrying a precious load: The ship was filled with silver. There were silver ingots on every deck and the King was anxiously waiting for this valuable transport to come home to port. The weight of the silver made the "8 Provinces" slower than usual. So the captain knew that trouble was ahead when the look-out cried: "Pirate sail on the horizon!" [to be continued] I had some trouble myself with the shooting of the ship as it toppled at the beginning of the photo session and was damaged in many ways. It took some time to repair the model - and, as often in these cases, I could not detect all defects. So some things are still wrong on the pictures, which is why I could not use too many of them here. Well, you will see some more in the next chapter. [edit] Or just now:
  22. The Secret of the Ships

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter Captain Cookie continued: And so the highwayman .... Lady De Summer: Does this man actually have a name? Oh, yes. He called himself the "Red Fandango". Lady De Summer: Hardly his real name... So the Red Fandango finally had three ships in his possession. Lady De Summer: Three? You have only mentioned two models that he has stolen or robbed! Quite right. He had inherited the third ship. Or rather the "first" ship. He had found it in the attic of his family home after his father had passed away. And he also knew what to expect from the models. He just had to take them apart. Lady De Summer: (gasping) Hidden in the hull of the first ship was a sea map. And the second model produced another map - showing specific islands in that sea region. He had to pay attention not to ruin his fine red coat as the second map had partly been drowned in some blueberry juice or so. ... and the third ship? Contained a map showing a certain bay on an unspecified island. I cannot quite follow. What are all these maps about? Well, madam, the maps were chosen and designed in such a way that you would only find the destination once you had all three of them. The first one defined a large region of the sea. But you would not know what to do with it. The second one specified an island - which you would not be able to locate without the first map. The final map then displays the location of a special bay on that island. And what is to be found in that bay? The famous wreck of the "8 Provinces"! My dear captain, you need to help me out: What was the "8 Provinces"? That, my dear Lady, I will be telling you in a minute. [to be continued]
  23. The estate of Mr. Henderson proudly announces the launch of a new rum destillery in Puerto Desafio (former Terra Fin Tin) on Isla de Victoria: As you can see, this is a large factory and will be licensed accordingly. Hr. H. has announced that their production will be second to none - a splendid time is guaranteed for all!
  24. Stealing from the Rich

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter] The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter Captain Cookie continued: And so in the days that followed Corrington troops were guarding towns and noblemen. But despite all of their efforts, our highwayman was unstoppable. And he found something in the attic of a house. "Gold?" Lady de Summer asked. "No, of course not. Another model of a ship." ,,, and then he vanished into the night. I cannot believe that Corrington did nothing about this. Oh, Mylady, they did. And they had to. A lawyer in a bad mood appeared at Colonel Greybeards office. Colonel Greybeard: Hello, old chum, fine fellow, come in, come in. Who are ye? Lawyer: I am a certified lawyer of the high-esteemed Frank, Frank, Frank, Frank and Wrzygrislovsky. Colonel Greybeard: Jolly good, old chum. And which one of them is you? Lawyer: I am Wrzygrislovsky. But that is beside the point. My client demands that this robber be caught and punished. Colonel Greybeard: Good Golly, Miss Molly. Yes, yes, old pal, we're working on it. Horses for courses. Righty right. Never look a gift apple in the mouth. Lawyer: My client is not under the impression that your men are investing the required effort. Colonel Greybeard: Blimey. Terribly sorry, my friend, rest assured we are doing the best we can. Mouse and man. Lawyer: Then that may not be enough. Double your efforts, or you will face the consequences. [leaves] Colonel Greybeard (mutters to himself): Shiver me timbers... I'll send my best men... again. [C&C welcome]
  25. Tiptoe Through The Wheat Field

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter Captain Cookie continued: "So, of course, the Corrington troops were alarmed and set out to catch the highwayman." "Did they succeed", Lady De Summer asked. "Initially very much so. They were able to track him down and chase him into a wheat field..." Sergeant Salt and his men were confident. They would find that evil robbing highwayman. The field was practically surrounded, there was not escape. Sergeant Salt ordered his men to comb through the field. Farmer Giles, however, was furious. He had not seen such outrageous vandalism in his whole life! The farmer cursed the soldiers and maybe this was the reason why they did not catch the highwayman. The highwayman seemed to have disappeared, vanished into thin air. The soldiers searched and searched until nightfall and then returned to their barracks ...
