  1. As I didn't have much time to concern myself with this year's Summer Joust, I decided to just build a few Architecture models, mostly inspired by the African Setting category. They're all UNESCO World Heritage sites, as this year also marks the 50th anniversary of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention and coincidentally they're all (more or less) from the 13th century. Okay, the first one is technically from the the 20th century, specifically 1906/7, as it is the Great Mosque of Djenné in Mali. However, it is supposedly recreating the original mosque that was built in the 13th century but left to fall into disrepair in the 19th century. And while it is debated how much influence the French administration had on the building, it has been built by the local masons' guild using traditional techniques and is a prime example of traditional Sahelian clay architecture. I captured it on the small scale of 1:400 with the primary driver for the design being the 1x2 tooth plate for the characteristic clay design and studs for emphasizing the rodier palm sticks. Then I built a model of one of the rock-hewn churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia, which were actually among the very first sites to be declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1978. These churches were cast right out of the volcanic ground in their entirety in an effort by King Gebre Mesqel Lalibela to recreate Jerusalem in the Ethipian Highlands in the 12th and 13th century. I built one of the most prominent ones, the cross-shaped Bete Giyorgis (House of St. George), which fits quite well into the LEGO grid on a rather large scale of 1:100. It's not a particularly complicated building with a lot of facade detail to begin with, but it is a rather interesting building nevertheless and a neat addition to my repertoire of mostly European churches. Finally and more or less spontaneously, I also built a rather small model for the 12x12 Vignette category. I recently rediscovered my 6-wide octagon technique and it fits just perfectly for a model of Castel del Monte at a very small scale of 1:900. This building, built under Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II in Apulia, Italy is mostly known for its characteristic octagonal design, so gettting that right was the most important thing for capturing it. The towers (although originally also octagonal) then fit quite naturally around it in the correct spots. A little entrance and the whole thing is done. Building instructions for all three models can be found on my Rebrickable profile. I also want to thank the Zamani Project, a research project for documenting mostly African heritage, which among other resources also provides freely browsable 3D models of the two African sites above, which were very helpful in designing the corresponding LEGO recreations.

    Everdell Chapel [MOC]

    @LittleJohn and I worked together to create another Everdell scene, this time based off of the Chapel card. We built it in about a week working on it sporadically. John primarily handled rockwork, animals and some small details, while I built the chapel and helped finish the landscaping. John also handled the photography and photo editing. It’s always a treat building together, and I’m super pleased with how this came out! Our source of inspiration: Plain background overview Details and Characters: There are a few more shots on our website, Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, your feedback is always welcome
  3. My latest creation, The Great Temple of Ulric. It's not 100% accurate to the description, but I still think it turned out alright. also included Ar-Ulric Emil Valgeir. Hope you like it Ulric's holiest site is the legendary Fauschlag, known also as the Ulricsberg. In ancient days, the greatest of the gods were Ulric and Taal; the mightiest and most widely worshipped. Yet Ulric was troubled, for it seemed that his elder brother came before him in all things. To Taal he voiced this concern, and the Lord of the Forests asked his brother what would put his mind at ease. Ulric replied that he desired a domain that he could say that belonged to him and him alone. Taal considered this request and decided to grant his younger brother's request. He gifted Ulric with a great mountain surrounded by harsh forests filled with fierce beasts. Pleased with this, Ulric thanked his elder brother and smote the mountaintop flat with his mighty fist. Here, he declared, would his chosen people, the Teutogens, abide and build a mighty fortress and temple, where his fires would burn eternally and men would journey far and wide to pay him tribute. Thus was born the Fauschlag, which in the tongue of the Teutogens, means 'Fist-Strike.' <a href="https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Cult_of_Ulric" rel="noreferrer nofollow">warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Cult_of_Ulric</a>
  4. Heddal Stave Church is the largest stave church in Norway. It was constructed at the beginning of the 13th century. I visited the church in 2019. Since then, I have been thinking about building a LEGO model of the church. But I had many other things I wanted to build. So it was only this year that I got time to build it. Here are some photos of the real church:

    MOC Medieval Haven

    This is my rendition of a medieval castle and village in springtime. It features a church, blacksmith, windmill, and watermill. I hope you enjoy the colors and textures as much as I do! Here is my Flickr and a video of it on YouTube if you would like to see more. I wanted to add more pictures here but I am having trouble doing so.
  6. Saint Basil's Cathedral is an Orthodox church in Red Square of Moscow, and is one of the most popular cultural symbols of Russia. The building, now a museum, is officially known as the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat, or Pokrovsky Cathedral. It was built from 1555 to 1561 on orders from Ivan the Terrible and commemorates the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. I spent about 2 months to build this LEGO model.

  7. It's been too long! This build started as an Ideas project: I wanted a small chapel for an island town. The stained glass got more and more complicated so the chapel kept growing. Given TLG's hesitation to build religious structures, I decided a large chapel wouldn't cut it. But the chapel would fit well in BoBs, so I added a graveyard, fountain, procession, and here we are. Originally, this was supposed to be a nod to the old Imperial Armada line... note the color choices, crests, etc. Let me know what you think! This was originally going to go to the side of the chapel, but it was just too ornate... so I moved it to the town 'square' Recognize the names? Interior shot of the stained glass and congregation Back of the church. One of the most frustrating things from Studio for me is stickers... I love customs, I had to photoshop it in. It turned out okay, but would have been better with a real sticker on real bricks. Final shot. You can find more on my flickr
  8. With an influx of newcomers to Interlagos, the settlers in this growing town decided it was time to build a proper church (rather than use the tavern as a makeshift meeting place). Field stone was used for the walls, and timber from the local sawmill was used for the roof. Stained glass was brought in from Fuerte Unido for the windows. Some more pics: To be licensed as a small art & culture property. ------ After working on some micro builds recently, I decided to go to an in-between scale, building this mini-scale build that is big enough to qualify for a small property, but not so big as to require more bricks than I have access to at the moment. All C&C welcome.

    [MOC] St. Alexander's Church

    Greetings! I have recently took upon myself the task of recreating one of my favourite buildings lost to the ravages of war: St. Alexander's Church in Warsaw, Poland. It's quite an ambitious project (over 20,000 bricks) that I intend to finish by October. Background information: The church was completed in 1825 and was built in the neoclassical style. In the 1890s, the Russians, who occupied Poland, decided to remodel the building architecturally and expand it considerably. The temple was practically intact following the German invasion of Poland in 1939, and was almost completely razed to the ground as part of the planned destruction of Warsaw in late 1944 (only one of the bell towers survived). After the war, the church was rebuilt, however in its original form, not the one after the 1890 alteration (probably due to a combination of insufficient funding and the opposition to the Church by the new communist regime). My aim was to rebuild the church as it stood between 1890 and 1944. Notes on the build: Dimensions: the building itself measures 132cm x 76cm x 54cm (the build is situated on a 2x4 grid of 48x48 baseplates) Many people may be annoyed by this, but I decided not to build the interior for two reasons; one is practical, the other is technical. As for practicality, I came up with an idea to insert some LED lighting into the church so that it can be illuminated, which should combine beautifully with the trans-coloured bricks that make up the stained glass windows. Inserting a power source, wiring, lights, controlled, etc. may have been problematic with a completed interior. Regarding technicality, I conducted a lot of photographic research before designing the model in Studio. While pictures of the exterior are not difficult to come by (owing to the fact that the church was one of the architectural crown jewels of pre-war Warsaw), I had only found one of the interior, and the quality of it was insufficient to provide an appropriate representation of the interior. Although written accounts of the interior do exist, I wanted to stay true to the original. Granted, one cannot replicate everything in Lego (especially me, a mediocre builder at best), but I didn't want my imagination to taint the build. Photos of the actual church: (The church after being destroyed. Notice the one surviving bell tower. The bricks you can see in the foreground came from the church and were used to build other buildings for the returning population following their expulsion after the failure of the Warsaw Uprising). Renders: Note: the renders aren't complete, primarily because of technical limitations. I'm running an Intel i7 with a GTX 1080 and even that setup struggles sometimes. Also, the angles of the build make working in Studio annoying at times. Some elements that I wanted to put Studio considers as colliding with others (particularly when it comes to the dome), so I've decided to just do them in real life instead. These include the top of the dome, the roofing adjacent to the dome base, the statues on the roof, and some minor details here and there. The greatest challenge will be the walls of the dome; as you can see they're empty, and I may have to resort to non-Lego means. Building: More to follow! Most of the workpace is dictated by how fast the BrickLink orders arrive at my place.
  10. A microscale MOC of one of the most famous symbols of the town of Novi Sad, Serbia. The Name of Mary Church is often referred to as a "cathedral" by the locals despite it being a church in reality. The piece which set the tone was the white hub cap and everything else was done to scale with that. It took me about a week to build it.

    Winter Village: Village Church

    Hello All! Please check out my special creation for the holiday, the Village Church for the well known LEGO Winter Village series. The Church, which is an important part a village has never been released by LEGO, so I decided to design and build my own one. You will see the detailed exterior as well as the interior on the pictures below, and also how well this building fits in the Winter Village atmosphere! The Village Church: The view of the Village: Backside view: The interior: Above the detailed interior of the church. There you will see the benches and a place for the choir and the people. There is a bell in the tower and an altar inside as well. Some additional photos in high res: http://www.flickr.co...hty/8301666540/ Thanks for watching and happy holidays for you all!:) Based on some nice comments I update the first image :)

    [MOC] Church with Lighting

    Hi all, this is a MOC of a small church for my continuously changing train layout. Thanks to @LittleJohn and @soccerkid6 for the techniques used for the door, the upper alcove, and the stained glass. These and many other building techniques can be found in their extremely helpful Medieval Tutorials topic. IMG_0910 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The priest is based on Father Brown, the crime-solving title character of G. K. Chesterton's short stories and the current BBC show. I made his signature clerical hat by grinding and painting a crossbowman's helmet. IMG_0911 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The door, using the illustrious brothers' technique: IMG_0912 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The cross is made using a simple combination of Technic pieces: IMG_0913 by the chestertonian, on Flickr I'm sure others have built a rose window the same way before, but I stumbled upon the method almost by accident. IMG_0914 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The hatch above the rose window conceals a secret. Purists be warned: the following photos contain non-Lego electrical components! IMG_0915 by the chestertonian, on Flickr What does the switch control?

IMG_0919 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The last picture is a bit of an unintentional allegory in Lego: the mess that is the inner workings of the church still brings light to the darkness outside! Thanks for looking! Soli Deo Gloria
