durazno33 posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesI put together this build for the Flickr group, Lego War, which held a contest during August and September. It is a scene from the book/play/movie Les Miserable where the students build a barricade and fight against tyranny in the June Rebellion of 1832. Behind the Build I'm a firm believer that Lego MOC's should be sturdy and playable, so I made each of the buildings in the image able to open up and included internal details such as furniture, wall hangings, internal walls, and doors and in some cases stairwells. This was helpful to me as builder since to make the scene, I could empty the furniture from the surrounding buildings to make the barricade to join the rebellious minifigures in their fight against the "National Guard" minifigures. Making the plaza and street sections took a lot of round tile pushing and left me with sore thumbs. The good part about this is that now that the tiles are on the plates, I can reuse the plates! For those of you familiar with some of castle Lego sets, you might see that I styled my buildings after the buildings from Lego's Medieval Market (set 10193). In fact, you can see the top of the tan building from the Medieval Market included in the background of the image. The National Guard soldiers are using muskets and hats purchased from Brickwarriors.com which I hand painted to highlight the metal parts. Funny Fact Though, this is the "June Rebellion" which in France would have been at the start of summer, I portrayed the plaza as if it were taking place during Autumn. Having myself only seen the TV Movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077936/), I didn't know the time of year that this was occurring until I did more research on the topic. Apparently in my version of events, June that year was particularly cold and caused the trees to turn colors.

Bonjour! I love the musical Les Miserables, I've seen a stage performance of it, and seen the movie a lot of times. So I made a scene of it, I must apologize, some of the pictures aren't great, and the good ones I photoshopped to be a bit dark and with rain, etc. If you don't have time to scroll through everything, the spoilers contain the best pictures. "Do you hear the people sing?" Next are two pictures, an overview of it, and a blurry picture showing that it can be disassembled easily. The whole thing is constructed on a 32x32 plate. and a 16x32 plate. Also, the buildings have open backs to see inside. On the ends of the buildings are technic holes and pins that allow me to add on more buildings and plates to make the street longer. (Sort of like the modular buildings) Speaking of interiors: "Master of the House!" A side alley between the buildings. I can add on more to either side because of the pins. Also the tan building's credit goes to my brother KingoftheZempk He's working on his ship right now (it is coming really well! I hope you see it soon!) so he couldn't focus all of his time on it. This is perfect with Les Mis in the background. "Fallen from Grace..." \ "At the end of the day!" Here is a front view. This is without the barricade. (All of the buildings have tables, boxes, etc. that I can take out and set up.) Also, note Gavroche and the sewers where Marius and Valjean escape. I'm really proud of that wall, "Red! The blood of angry men!" Last picture, in the middle you can see a grey hinge. The tables are connected this way. It's semi sturdy. I hope you all enjoyed! C&C welcome!
TimothyFrog posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesI built this for the Sydney Brick Show running this week. It's my first MOC since I was a teenager. I have always loved Paris, and always loved this scene in the book and movie of Les Miserables, thought it was time to make a LEGO version. But as I love Star Wars and super heroes I thought it needed a few touches. :-)
