  1. Well, 2.5 years later it's *almost* finished! Here is our moc of Elvendale and the Dragon Sanctuary. What started off as a fairly simple moc of the village quickly got out of hand and grew to include a mountain, our version of the Dragon Sanctuary, a goblin village and more! We took inspiration from the Animated series and the original sets, but added our own twist. Elvendale village includes the bakery, a mining store and a little house. Behind stands the Elvenstar tree. The Dragon School can be found high up on a rocky outcrop, by a high waterfall The Elvenstar Tree Follow the road East of the village (past the mushroom stairs into the Elvenstar Tree) and you'll come to the old windmill that sits above Naida's cove: Take the path west up the mountain and you'll find the entrance to the crystal mine. If you don't like the look of that, cross the winding stream to reach the mountain meadow, but beware - you might be being watched! Look up and you'll see the floating islands... And reaching into the clouds, the Dragon Sanctuary itself... The sanctuary had stood empty for as long as any elf could remember, and a huge tree was taking over. But when the goblins were saved from Kronan, they came to work for the elves and they soon had it back up and running... A bit of plumbing here, a fire there... The queen egg sits on top of a magic pool. The water is piped over the water egg, collected and used to water the branches round the earth egg. The goblins collect the wood and use it to feed the fire under the fire egg, and the hot air rises to turn the fans by the wind egg. Keep going West, and you'll come down the other side of the mountain. Rosalyn's healing hideout stands by the beach, and a mysterious entrance... ...which leads into the underground goblin village! The plants look fearsome, but they're friendly really... Maybe stop for refreshments in the inn? Ah, so that's how they get in! Keep going and you'll find yourself right back where you started - back in Elvendale Village! Of course, walking is fine, but it's much quicker to go by dragon! And here are a couple of bonus pics: Whole thing from the front (sorry about the background, I don't have anywhere big enough to properly photograph it!) And the back: Thanks for looking! There are lots more photos on my Flickr, including WIP and comparisons of the original artwork/sets and our versions. https://www.flickr.com/gp/160994572@N02/535Fa1
  2. I would appreciate your vote on my Lego ideas MOC especially if you like the castle theme, dwarfs and Lord of the Rings Legos! You can vote for it here on the Lego Ideas website. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/eef9bd2f-282c-4613-b70e-c64b7072093f My children are my inspiration for this Lego build. The dwarfs are some of our favorite castle minifigures and there are not many sets featuring them. This build is intended to feature the dwarven race and their unique home set robustly within the natural elements.

    [MOC] Tyrolean Mountain Refuge

    Hi and thank you so much for accepting me on your forum! I am a beginner moc builder and I mainly build alpine themed MOCs. I have just made my first submission in Lego Ideas, a Tyrolean mountain hut to have a break from all the hiking. Rest and eat some homemade cheese here! Please tell me if you like it and if you do, please support me on Lego ideas. It would mean the world to me to know you would enjoy such a build. I would love to have Lego develop an outdoorsy alpine theme. Thank you so much for reading and click below to vote! https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/2e842258-824c-4b4a-a46a-1ad8007aef08

    River Canyon Railroad

    Hi all, I've recently come out of my dark ages and decided to get back into Lego trains! One thing I've always found fascinating is mountain railroading. I remember looking for the old railroad grades in the mountains on family trips to Colorado, and I enjoy reading about how they were constructed through the mountains. (The Denver, Northwestern & Pacific's standard gauge line over Rollins Pass is pretty incredible). This project takes inspiration from a Denver and Rio Grande Western Line between Buena Vista and Leadville, CO as well as the Yosemite Valley railroad in California. I'm planning on creating five sections for this. The railroad will pass over the river at some point (still playing with a couple ideas!). It won't be a full loop, but I enjoy making dioramas. With the space I have available, I can add a lot more detail to a diorama display. Two questions for you guys: 1) Getting the slopes to line up is pretty tricky. What's really tough is making the supports line up to brace the upper mountainside. Has anyone made any references for these kinds of things? I was thinking of making some basic models to really figure out how to line things up. I was hoping to avoid going into calculating LDU's and such, but with all the angles, it might be necessary. 2) Has anyone made wide radius curve L-draw files (R56, R72, R88)? I searched the forum and found links for the ME-models library and R104 Bricktracks on Lgauge.org, but I found the ME models ones to be kinda finicky. Let me know what you think! I played with a couple different methods for detailing and attaching the trees and grass, etc so I'm open to feedback and to other ideas as well! I plan on updating this thread as I finish the other modules. Thanks!

  5. IMG_20200430_204832 I build this MOC long before the conclusion of the "Hunted"-Season from Ninjago and kinda imagined the Armor being propped up in an old shrine in the middle of rocky wastelands instead of just being placed in the center of a huge dragon`s nest. Oh well, at least it was a reason for me to use that neat raised baseplate from the Bionicles theme.

    A Meeting With The Dwarves

    previously After being manipulated by Erdan so many times Eoin had decided to rethink what Erdan had said after talking to the bartender. So, he had gone back to his room and talked with all of his soldiers and had decided to go confront Erdan, but when they got back they saw Erdan had taken control of the fort Cander. In the battle that ensued they managed to defeat him. So Eoin left all his soldiers to protect the fort then talked to Jarl Olaf he got orders to take Erdan to a nearby dwarven prison. Jarl Olaf had also said that after bringing Erdan to justice, he could keep commanding Fort Cander even though he had not performed his duties as a Karl. However, Eoin had refused the offer and instead decided to go back to his cottage in the woods to escape the stress of commanding. So finally back to being a lowly ranger of mitgardia, and away from an old friend and traitor. Here is a picture without minifigures: Unfortunately I couldn't make it into category A, so this is what I did instead. C&C welcome!
  7. This train is named the 909 National Limited, a (fictional) early 1930's steam-powered train run by Brick Railway Systems. This transcontinental train has it's respective east or west bound sections leave New York (or Los Angeles) on Monday at 9-AM sharp for the 3-day "Day" trip to the final destination, 72 hours distant, at 9:00 AM on Thursday. Then, after that train is cleaned and restocked in less than 12 hours, than it, or the standby train if their is delays, can be sent back as the "Night" section on-wards at 9-PM Thursday to 9-PM Sunday night. At 9-AM Monday morning, the whole cycle repeats anew for the next week. Their are five complete train-sets, two being used at any one time, two being cleaned and restocked on a bi-weekly basis, and one for standby in case of breakdowns. Also, coaches are in ready to use condition in several yards in large cities, just waiting to be dropped into place if a car needs to be worked on en-route. There are seven of the streamlined 4-8-2 "Mountain" type engines (numbers 4307 to 4314) assigned to the 909 National Limited, with a rotating pool of rolling repair and preventative maintenance schedules vigorously followed. Here we see engine 4312, it was built in the late 1920's by Lima locomotive Works. It was one of the lucky few of the 50 engines bought by Brick Railway Systems to receive a complete streamlined casing shortly after being assigned to 909 National Limited in 1931, along with six other's of it's type. It is painted in reddish brown with a fluted black side stripe on the engine and black box stripe on the tender to keep it in line with the passenger cars of the 909 National Limited, it's assignment for the foreseeable future. In reality, this locomotive was inspired by the South Australian Railways 520 class 4-8-4 and the hover mono-rail engine from the Legend of Korra TV Show, while the train coaches were inspired by a vintage 2009 LEGO model of "Galaxy Express 999". (Link to Brickshelf here ) The real story behind the of the name 909 Limited is a combination of this fantasy train and the Beatles song "One after 909", which is sort-of about a train. This is where the food is cooked and baggage is stored on the transcontinental journey. I don't know if such a car type really exists, but if not, I'm not sure what to call it... any suggestions? One of these cars is a sleeper, one a dining car, and one is a coach. But YOU get to guess which one is which! (Answer: They are exactly the same externally and there is no inside details. Only my imagination provides the difference!) The observation car at the end of the train has a viewing platform for looking at all the wonders this country has to offer as they go by. Builders Notes: So I looked back through the forum archive, and didn't see a topic posted for this train by itself. I saw one with other trains with it, but not one by itself, and it wasn't even in real bricks... so here is my updated for 2019 pictures and detailed description for this revised model. Also, the three day journey each way is plausible, as I asked Google, and it spit out a map from 1930 that said it took a train three days (72 hours) to get from Los Angeles to New York City. Now, I know that most trains headed to LA started in Chicago, but I'm ignoring that fact in my alternate reality LEGO-world here steam never died off completely, Amtrak doesn't exist in the semi-corporate mess it does today, and the electrification of the Milwaukee Road reached from the Twin Cities region to the Pacific ocean and are still there today. On that note, the North East Corridor wires stretch all the way to Chicago. ...anyway, kinda got off topic there. As usual, if you have any questions, comments, or complaints, please post them below!

    Calbridge Castle

    This is my fifth entry for the Colossal Castle Contest XVI. I always enjoy building microscale castle scenes, so I certainly wasn’t going to pass up the Micro Medieval Mountain category, even if the prize wasn’t very desirable for me… The micro ship design was inspired by @Henjin_Quilones, though I did modify it slightly for us here. The fortress of Calbridge is built right into the Fjall mountains and its mighty walls protect the harbor and village along the coast. Looking for a better pictures of a specific detail? More images available on Brickbuilt. I had a lot of fun with this build, hope you all enjoy
  12. This loco is a 1926 oil burning 4-8-2 "Mountain" type, (4 leading, 8 drivers, 2 trailing) that was made surplus in 1951, donated to the Museum of Transportation (of St. Louis, Missouri) in 1959, and restored to working order in 1988 for it's excursion career. It's new lease on life lasted until 2002 when insurance costs and a failing boiler made the engine enter it's second retirement, while will be probably be forever. This may not be the best interpretation of the Frisco 1522, but it seems to be the one of the few I've seen built out of Lego. (this loco is the only other 1522 I've found and it really blows mine away. ) The model you see here has been my dream ever since I was 5 or six years old and rode behind the steamer on one of it's last public trips. (I don't remember much of the trip, but I do remember the sense of awe and respect for the power of steam after seeing the loco pull past us on it's journey back to the museum and into what looks to be permanent retirement.) The cab walls on both model and real engine have the name of the railroad (Frisco) on it's side, while the number of the loco (1522) goes on the tender sides. The way to do this is using printed 1 x 1 tiles. The real engine is publicly displayed at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. The Lego model of the loco is sitting on the front of the loco, just above the cowcatcher. Here is the most recent LDD file for the engine and tender. NOTES: Hopefully next year the Frisco 1522 and Milwaukee Road Bi-Polar will be built in real bricks, ready to be displayed beside the Southern Pacific 4460 and the GM Aerotrain that I already own. Please, if you have any complaints, praise, questions, or anything like that, please post it below. Feedback is always welcome, and I would like some advice on things I could improve on. Thanks in advance! EDIT 9/28/17: Updated ldd file and added new pictures. The device in between the two domes (I forgot it's technical name, "feed water heater" maybe?) is now more like the real engine, with two cylinders instead of none like I had before. This engine should be built by early next year. EDIT 10/6/17: the parts for the Frisco 4-8-2 steam loco + '57 Plymouth Fury parts are finally here! NOTE: Two tender wheels and all the letters / numbers are not here because I need to place that order separately later on by myself. So it's really not all here, but it's about 99% arrived. EDIT 19/29/18: Here we can see my newest brick-built model, Frisco 1522 (4-8-2 "Mountain" type) meeting my long-built Southern Pacific 4460 (4-8-4 "Northern" type). Above you can see it next to my other already-built Museum of Transportation models. Ever since I went on the last Kirkwood to Hannibal trip behind the Frisco 1522 in early 2002 at age 8, I've wanted to own a model of the famous burly Baldwin. I've tried many times over the last 16 years (mostly in the last 8) to recreate her, until finally getting it right in late 2017, in LEGO 6-stud-wide format. Then, the museum in which the engine resides opened up the cab for the 16th anniversary of the last ride on the 22nd of September of 2018 (they had never opened up the cab to the public before then and may never again). I tried to get in, but didn't due to unforeseen complications. That is, until a helpful employee let me into the cab to take a couple pictures with me and my model this Saturday, the 29th. All I have to say is, thank you to Sam, who helped me out to get the above photo of me and my model in the cab of the Frisco 1522. Here is a closeup of my LEGO model of the 4-8-2 steam engine in the real-world Frisco 1522's cab it is modeled after. I believe the model is sitting on the diesel link-up computer that allows for the steam loco's engineer to simultaneously control the following diesel locomotive that provides electricity to the train and emergency motive power in case of steam breakdown. Any thoughts, comments, complaints, or suggestions are always welcome!
  13. Hey Eurobricks! Here is my latest build based on the Disney Frozen movie we picked Arendelle Castle for my 2 daughters to enjoy. The castle is surrounded by water and a massive 4 foot tall mountain in a 7x8 baseplate layout. There are 5 waterfalls that light up in addition to the main castle building. Getting ready for Brickworld Chicago in June. Hope you enjoy!

  15. Thulgard by David de Rijke, on Flickr Few of the ships of the once so mighty Mitgardian expedition survived their voyage, but the brave survivors joined up and found land! On the vast continent of Vela, yet unknown to Historica, they founded their new home, Thulgard. As the wood of the ships was used for pallissades and watch towers, the crews went out to forage and build some structures to survive the incoming winter. They did not go unnoticed, however... Their new settlement of Thulgard seemed to be placed in the domain of the Empire, and some imperial officers already stood at the gates to reclaim it, diplomatically. Not a single change however that Mitgardian captain Amkyr will let that happen! Thulgard lays in the Westerlands, the -obviously- western region of the Empire, ruled by the house of Glainthes, who have their seat near Bunnock's Barn, half a day's march away. Bunnock manor by David de Rijke, on Flickr Thulgard might be my most detailed build at this scale. At least it has the best rockwork I have ever produced :p The mountain had been under construction for, like, a year, so I am kind of glad that I am done, for now I sorted out my lego, I can't wait to build much and much more! Alas I kind of forgot I am studying abroad now for some weeks, so I had to hurry with the photography before I left. I might wanna make better pictures when I am back!
  16. HI guys, I want to share with you this interview we did to the builder of this MOC. As it is in Italian, turn on subtitles in English. Let me know if you are interested in other MOC videos exhibited in Italian events.
  17. This was built for the Colossal Battle Contest V, specifically the Dread Ambushers category. I have always enjoyed building dwarven style creations, and had wanted to do another for a while. The tower was somewhat influenced by dwarven towers in skyrim. This also gave me a great opportunity to use the polar bear in a build. The dwarves of Staor have many small outposts around the mountain that serve as defensive bastions, and gates into their underground kingdom. Some unfriendly neighboring trolls have planned an ambush and scaled down the craggy mountain slopes in an attack on the dwarves. Little do they realize that they too may be on the receiving end of an ambush. More pics. Thanks for looking, comments and criticism welcome
  18. I wanted to create some different areas based on the four elements represented by the four main elves, I've mixed parts from all kinds of different sets to create these places. This one is the earth themed home for Farran the Earth Elf. I wanted it to be part cottage, part treehouse. It's mostly parts from The Elves Treetop Hideaway and the Ewok Village sets. I attached my waterfall cave alongside the treehouse I also made a fire themed volcano cave with a tall treehouse/tower neighbouring it. It's mostly made from a Lego Friends set that has a cabin and a waterfall. I kept the cabin and built the tower above it and changed the waterfall into a volcano. I've created a workshop for the Air Elf Aira in one section of the tower with a bedroom above it, an observing platform with a telescope above that and a turret room on the top. The webisodes show that Azari the fire elf is homeless and just crashes with the other elves, but I've given her a warm place to sleep inside the volcano. I kept the camp beds in the cabin for the humans to sleep in when they visit Elvendale. And here's some random pictures..
  19. Hi guys, after doing a large build for the SJ17 I did not have much motivation for a new large project immediatly. Then I remembered how I have many uncompleted Age of Mitgardia builds left to do :P Here is my take on the tower phase one! My first focus was on the rockwork, and when I started the tower I had no idea where it was going, but im quite pleased with the result.
  20. This past week, the local LUG, Cactus Brick, put on a display at the Phoenix Comicon. The display contained a new pirate section, a large town with an enhanced railway system, and a large Star Wars collection. Here is a video highlighting the various builds.
  21. So this has been a REALLY long-term project of ours but we're finally making some progress. Godwins Hollow was originally conceived as the place that the LEGO Agents would defend from the menacing henchmen of INFERNO! All respectable evil-doers need a secret lair and this is the start of theirs! Once it's completed we're hoping to have two full levels underneath the mountain, trap doors revealing weapon systems, launch bays, and all of the other despicable stuff an Inferno HQ should have. Once you scroll thru the pics below you'll be able to see we've made some significant progress on the base level both inside and out. The main hover jeep garage, mountain exit, and repair bay are all in place. There is a personnel elevator to take you to the command center and eventually on to the next underground level, and two mech bays for the Inferno mechs. So please take a look at what we've done so far and feel free to leave any feedback you'd like. Enjoy! As always, there are more pics on our Flickr page and over on MOC Pages. Thanks for checking it out.
  22. [GBW] - CP 1 - EROTEMA – HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN INVASION There is a meeting at the Erotema´s Army Headquarters. Two officers of the Army Staff give instructions to prepare Erotema against an invasion from Briolui, and there is an officer of the Combat Engineers Brigade and another from the Mountain Brigade. There are also orders to improve Refnor´s and Filace´s land defenses. PREPAR1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Combat Engineers have many main functions: provide protection for their own troops by building shelters and other useful structures; provide mobility by clearing mine fields or building roads or bridges; and impair enemy movements by laying mines or preventing the use of bridges, roads, etc. This is what our 4-strong Combat Engineers squad is doing today. They have to prepare explosive charges in a bridge that leads to the capital town of Erotema, located in grid D4. It will be not the only bridge being prepared for an eventual invasion, of course. All the main bridges are to be prepared for an invasion (in grid E4 also). IMG_20170401_095522 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr IMG_20170401_095541 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr This bridge can hold the weight of a 70-ton MBT at a time (no more than 70 tons at the same time), so it is strategic for the defense of Erotema. Here we can see the squad leader discussing where to place the charges and the amount of TNT to set. dialogo ingenieros by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr They decide to go down rappelling. The bridge is completed and ready to be blasted if necessary. This other bridge is easier to sabotage, and they use the zodiac to set the charges. ZODIAC1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr They are struggling with the water to complete their mission. zodiac2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Beaches must be prepared too, in grids C3-C4-B4-B5-B6-C6. They are laying an anti-tank mine. The Erotema Army has 2 types of anti-tank mines. Those which blast by pressure and anti-handling land mines. The latter can´t be moved and will blast if a heavy vehicle passes by very close. IMG_20170329_205909 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Walls also provide protection. These group of builders have selected a place close to the border with BRIOLUI to raise a wall, in grids E4-E5 and in the borders of REFNOR with other RON nations (grids E5-E6-F6-F7-E7-D7). The wall also covers the borders of EROTEMA with the allies FILACE and REFNOR (C3-D3-D4-E4-E5-D5-D6). IMG_20170401_113817 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The wall is very high, more than 3 metres, and has machine guns, grenade launchers and detection devices all along it. IMG_20170401_114058 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr In another part of the country we have a brave squad of the Mountain brigade. They have the order to set up an anti-tank sites in a hilltop, and this is only one of many. Grids G3 and E5 in Filace, Erotema and Refnor. HILLTOP1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr HILLTOP2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr One of them must climb first and secure the way for his comrades. HILLTOP3 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Of course, it is a hard climb. HILLTOP4 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr It´s a hard work. Why? HILLTOP5 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr After a few hours they have finished. HILLTOP6 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Another view. HILLTOP7 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr And they show us how to deploy in case of a threat. HILLTOP8 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Close up on the Anti tank missile launcher. Inspired on the TOW, it has the same features, with a Night Vision sight and possibility to engage slow helicopters. The other weapon is a more conventional grenade launcher, with two types of warhead: HEAT and fragmentation. The first one is against “hard” targets (tanks, not able to destroy but able to cripple; APCs can be blasted) and the second is for “soft” targets (HUMVEES, trucks or similar). Without wind, they can target a slow helicopter too. HILLTOP9 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr
  23. For the last KockeFest exhibition, I really wanted to try something new and not just bring along modulars buildings. I had fun building this diorama, although I admit the initial plan was much bigger than this. But then I ran out of bricks and space, and left it like this at 48x96 studs size. However, there's still a chance of continueing this MOC further as planned. I got the two Elves' sets with the dragons mostly for the parts, but then I really enjoyed playing with the dragons (thanks to my 2-year old son), that I saw a bigger potential. That's when the idea started forming, and the MOC was slowly shaping. In addition, I wanted to try different approaches building the vegetation and water features. This was my first attempt at building a waterfall, and I'm ok with this version, although it was challenging mostly because a lot of my bricks is currently unsorted, and finding the right parts (knowing I have them) was taking a lot of extra time. I recently got some trans-clear Technic bricks, and I thought of using them as support for a flying dragon, that's why I set the green dragon up in the air flying above the forrest. Another challenge of this MOC was taking pictures. Since it takes up the width of my kitchen table, it was not easy to set up a white background (the wall) and get the right light from the window on one side. I want to expand this to include also an Elven village, and perhaps add more dragons, and improve the display further, so any comments are welcome.
  24. High in the mountains sits a small temple above a serene lake. Disturbed only by the sound of the falls, the mountain is home to a peaceful tribe of monks. This is a very large piece that I've worked on for several months now. See the flickr for more information: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nxtquy/31952169970/ Other side and overview shots:
  25. I was on vacation some time ago and I stayed with my family. They had some old LEGO from the 90's, mostly City and Western. Of course I had to tackle this mass of plastic to see what can be done :) So, it's not my usual build, but it gave me a lot of fun and some appreciation for the parts palette we have today :) I'm sorry for the picture quality, I did not have any white background save for the table cloth with lots of patterns on it ;) Full gallery is here: http://bricksafe.com/pages/Mestari/mountain-hut---retro-style
