    Fright Knights

    Hi everyone, I have build a landscape of 1 by 1 meter based on the Fright Knights. The landscape will be shown at Lego World in the Netherlands in October. In the landscape is a ruin on the right back corner, which is based on set 6087. The Castle is based on set 6097 (of course) and I wanted the rocks be similar to those in the catalogs from 1997. In the left part of the rocks is a dragon head that can move forward and back. If it moves forward the mouth will open. It is powered by PF. On the top are a few small houses, which are based on the houses in the Lego Game: Lego Racers. In the front is a forest which is the territory of the Dark Forest. The Royal Knights are attacking the Fright Knights. For more pictures, go to my Flickr album. Feedback and questions are welcome. Sander
  2. This was a favorite childhood set of mine. I'm glad I grew up when I did. I would call the late 80s/early 90s a golden era for LEGO for sure. Castle and Pirates were my favorite themes, but Castle always pulled ahead. You had the Crusaders, Forestmen, Black Falcons, Black Knights, and Wolfpack. All great themes with fun builds. But maybe I'm biased. I built a remodeled/updated version of Skull's Eye Schooner a few years ago (I still need to photograph it) and I had a lot of fun making an official set "better." I told myself I wanted to do this more. I wanted to have more fun building instead of stressing out about picking up official sets before they retire. So I decided to go for the River Fortress first. When looking online I came across a few others that have already done this and as inspiring as they were, I definitely saw areas I wanted to change, so I decided to MOC one myself. I hope you all enjoy these photos. I know they aren't the best quality. I only had access to my iPhone 7. Any criticism is welcome. I've already tweaked it a little here and there since taking these photos. And next is to build more groundwork sideways to incorporate more of a forest (and maybe a group of crusaders pulling a cart of gold they can rob). Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr From another angle. Closer look at some of the mushrooms. Nothing too special, but it adds a little something extra. Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr The rear of the building. I took a lot of cues from how I would imagine the official set to look. (and yes, the back does open like the original). Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr Straight on Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr Interior shot. It is like they cut off part of the tree to build around it and it just kept on growing. I want to eventually add more of a small armory and some beds.

I like how the leaves angle a bit. (And just now looking at the picture, the front hinge should actually be angled down more) Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr And the whole gang. Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Little John, and I assume they would have a pet, why not? Forestman River Fortress Redux 2017 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr I hope this was fun enough to get some good reviews. I enjoyed doing it and I hope to do more like this. Maybe Black Knight's Castle next. Thanks! Oops! It appears I did something wrong. I thought I followed the tutorial correctly, but I'll have to check back when I have more time. I hope you can wait for pictures a tad longer. Edit: Hopefully fixed the picture issue.

    A Bargain of Mead

    Finally the Crusaders had enough of the Forestmen waylaying carriages, high jacking barges, and poaching the king’s deer. The king ordered a wagon loaded with his finest mead and dispatched under white flags to one of the occupied crumbling watchtowers near the edge of the forest as a peace offering in hopes of starting negotiations to end the Forestmen’s harassing activities. This was one of my entries to the CCCXV. For some reason, I never got around to posting it here! Some more pics here. C&C appreciated.
  4. 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 https://www.flickr.com/photos/brickknight/albums/72157687277962034

    CCC XIV: Forestmen Rescue

    My fifth entry to the CCC XIV, for the ‘Pit of Despair’ category. The landscape was largely influenced by Dubbadgrim’s builds. The majority of this build was built in two days, as I wanted to take it to a LUG event. The castle features a working drawbridge, and a full interior in the tower. The doors of the prison carriage can open as well. After some forestmen were captured by crusader knights, their compatriots hatched a clever plan to free them from the dungeon: disguise themselves as crusader knights, bring more ‘captured forestmen’ to the castle, and then break the others free! But will they be successful, and slip through the castle guard un-hindered? Or will their clever plan backfire? Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!

    Forestmen Camp

    A free-build placed in Avalonia, and also part of InnovaLUG's 'Ye Old Merry Battleground' collab, for Brickfair Virginia. This was a really fun build to make, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I’ll definitely be doing some more Forestmen themed builds in the future. Inspiration for the rockwork goes to Brickvader. The Forestmen's camp is hidden well in one of the many forests in Avalonia, and provides an excellent base of operations for them. They have scouts placed at various locations a little ways from the camp, and a few outside of the forest to keep an eye on the neighboring Lords and Barons of the land. Most recently, they learned of Sir Ruari Leanin leaving for a tax collecting tour, which they took full advantage of...

  7. I took my last castle build and made some major changes. I added a drawbridge and put a moat around the castle. I changed the keep, and added a nice looking library/ tower. Added a market village inside the walls as well. And made the dark forest outside the castle with a watch tower. The first picture was an entry for summer joust. The rest of the castle follows, I probably should have put minifigures in the pics, but i always like to take pics without the minis so you can see more detail and not be distracted.

  8. There once was a tower near a river in the woods of Avalonia, an outpost of soldiers. The outpost is constantly ravaged by nature and bandit raids, so after many years, the commander finally decided that it is not worth the effort or resources and ordered his troops to another location, abandoning the nearly ruined outpost to its fate. Due to its strategic position nearby a busy road, Forestmen wasted no time to take over the abandoned tower. As skilled in stealth and marksmenship as Forestmen are, they aren't expert carpenters or builders, so the tower never reached to its former glory, but after a few repairs and extensions the place became livable enough, as well as allowing its new occupants to flee into the safety of the forest through the bridge if needed.

  9. This is my fourth and final MOC revolving around Robin Hood, featuring Will Scarlet and Gamble Gold at an outpost, along with one of Prince John's soldiers. This outpost features a fake rock wall in the back which can be raised up to reveal two crates of treasure and two small barrels of food. These merry men can also raise the ladder to prevent any intruders. As with my other three Robin Hood MOCs, any feedback is much appreciated. If there is enough interest in this and my other Robin Hood MOCs, there is one more set I am considering making. This MOC is also a project on Lego Ideas. Feel free to support it here if you like it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/110260 You can also see these and additional pictures in higher res on Flickr at https://www.flickr.c...157655824432309
  10. This MOC features a peddler's wagon with several different features, including compartments for swords, bows and quivers, and Merry Men. Robin Hood and Little John are riding the wagon, and the Sheriff of Nottingham is off to the side ready to check the wagon's contents. There is an additional member of the Merry Men in the tree to the side of the wagon, which includes a catapult and hand and footholds to climb it in the back. Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions! This MOC is also a project on Lego Ideas. Please support/share it if you like it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/115547 I have a lot more pictures of the MOC on Flickr, with better resolution: https://www.flickr.c...157657993256465 [
  11. While we wait to see what Nexo Knights has in store for us, I thought I would share another MOC I just made. One of Robin Hood's Merry Men enters the village ready to give out stolen treasure . . . since his cart looks to be carrying refreshment, he is able to smuggle the treasure in without being stopped by the Sheriff of Nottingham's men! This MOC includes a horse-drawn cart featuring a barrel full of treasure, and two minifigures: One of Robin Hood's Merry Men to steer the cart, and a village blacksmith ready to gather up the treasure (as shown in the last image). This is also a project on Lego Ideas, if you feel inclined to support or share it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/113997 You can also see these and additional pictures in better quality through Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...157655165310134 Feel free to add any suggestions or questions in the comments if I missed anything.

    Lego Men in Tights

    Being a big fan of the Mel Brooks movie, Robin Hood Men in Tights, I thought I'd update some of my old classic Lego Forestmen with new heads to look like the characters from the movie. There are a few new figures as well to round out the mini scene. All your favorites are here, including Ahchoo, Blinkin, Robin Hood, Maid Marian, and the Sheriff of Rottingham. And in the back is Little John, Will Scarlet O'Hara, and two other Merry Men. I'm working on Don Giovanni, Latrine, and Prince John.
  13. A group of forestmen enlist a dwarven engineer to help them rob a keep, owned by the red king. But the 'merry band' eventually discover that nature can be just as formidable as the defences they tried so hard to avoid. Built for the 'merry band' category.
  14. Hi! I would like to present my new MOC - Forestmen´s Outpost. It was inspired by the Forestmen theme, especially the sets 6054 Forestmen´s Hideout and 6066 Camouflaged Outpost. I had also an idea of combining the warg from The Hobbit theme and the Wolfpack faction. I hope you´ll like it.
  15. Hi! This is my first MOC-post. The MOC itself was a 4 set challenge and I have only used parts from set 6077, 6066, 6054, 6273. This is the result after a few evenings of building. The castle is "openable" so that it can also be used as a gate/wall. Overall i'm quite satisfied with my first MOC, it's just the gate tower i'm not that happy about and by the time i was building it I was running out of parts. Anyways, here are some pictures of it! Hope you guys like it! Tell me what you think :)
  16. [CUUSOO] The Forbidden Pool - Combining Lord of the Rings and the Classic Forestmen Dear all, this is my very first CUUSOO project. The Lord of the Rings has taken me out of the dark ages, but one thing that I find lacking after the first two waves was a representation of the men of Gondor. Faramir, in particular, is my favourite Tolkien character, and I hope to see an official LEGO version of him in the future. This project is based on Henneth Annun, The Window on the Sunset, as it appeared in The Two Towers. I experimented a lot with the set and exchanged some play features - from a changing coloration of the inner waterfall (as featured in the book) to the current version with a secret entrance. My favourite LEGO sets as a child were the Forstemen sets, and Faramir's Rangers and their hideout reminded me of the green forest dwellers of the late 80s. I think this set is a realistic proposal for CUUSOO since it is not overly large and has the potential appeal to audiences from Lord of the Rings fans to young LEGO fans. I appreciate any comments! Cheers, Michael Link to the CUUSOO project: http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/45646 Overview of the set. Henneth Annun by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr I initially played with the idea of having a two-layered pool with a lever that shot fish around but abandoned it due to ever-incraesing piece count. Gollum in Pool better by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr Secret entrance through the Waterfall. Henneth Annun - entrance through Window on the West by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr Secret side entrance. Secret entrance by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr The floor can be pushed down to create a slope leading into the lower level of the cave. I intend to improve on this section once I have more bricks at my disposal. Ideally, I will have more furniture on the upper level and a hidden trapdoor leading down.This would also free some space on the bottom level for weapon racks and a smaller chamber to interrogate Gollum. Secret door by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr This play feature features the Ranger ambush on Gollum. A sliding plate moves the Ranger out of his cover to face Gollum. Ambush by Elessar II Aragorn, on Flickr I'm not satisfied with the look of the map on the crate, yet - again due to limited space caused by the larger than intended slope.

  17. Hey all! This is my first Castle - themed MOC. I have always enjoyed this theme, as some of my first sets as a kid were Castle sets. After seeing many great MOCs and scenes from builders here, I thought I'd have a go at one. I decided to do a forestmen type creation, as they have always been a favorite LEGO faction to me. Anyway, here it is. This is the overall scene, built on a 32 x 32 base. And that's it . Thanks for viewing, and as always, C&C welcome. EDIT: More photos and full set on Flickr
