  1. 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..
  2. Here's a quick overview of the MILS standard. For those who haven't heard it of it, it is a standard published by the Hispabrick magazine to help coordinate diorama building between Lego builders. It also is a great foundational tool for learning how to make more advanced builds. Hope you enjoy! I have other videos on my channel with instructions on how to make the various modules.
  3. [MOC] Rivergate

    I built my first Japanese themed MOC tp try out some ideas. It's just a smal scene, I hope you like it: Full album: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=568715
  4. Previously in the story: Bull's Eye (Prelude) This still takes place long before Raavage Davok: "We gathered our forces rather quick, and then marched for Falconstone. The supply train would arrive later, 'cause I wanted my vanguard to move freely.". "We were only halfway through the Frozen River fords, when some riders blocked our path." Unpleasant encounter (1) by David de Rijke, on Flickr "Three riders from unknown origin where standing in the river. One of them was their leader, obviously. He seemed to be some sort of wizard scum, given his hat and his staff from which icy sparks were coming. Never liked this kind.. The worst part, was their faces. They did not seem to have any..." "The wizard could speak, however. Immediatly when we saw these fellows, I raised my shield and took a defensive position. I saw my men do the same while my chieftains looked at me what to do. But the wizard told us about that messenger I spoke at the Bull's Eye. He said they were sent to help us. They lowered their weapons to prove it. I started to get an uneasy feeling about this whole mission. Who was our client, and why did he venture with wizards of this kind? Might he be some sort of wizard himself? And WHO is this stranger, if his value is so big these... powers... are sent in to deal with it?"
  5. These diesel F7-like locos were inspired by set 10020, (Santa Fe Super Chief) and my dark bluish gray with white / light gray stripes train cars. The cab and booster units feature no interior details because I have no need for such items on my layout.. that and retrofitting all my trains with inside stuff would be quite costly. The name of this train these engine's pull is a play off the Missouri River Runner, a real train that Amtrak runs from Kansas City to St. Louis. The Meramec River runs next to the Wabash Frisco & Pacific, so I switched the name to the Meramec River Runner for my railroad. The number 7301 goes on the sides of the nose just before the windscreen, while BRS (standing for my railroad's name, Brick Railway Systems) should go in the middle of the cab unit's sides, just above the fuel tank. (I don't have all the tiles yet, so their is a blank spot for the railway name) The nose features two headlights and a split windscreen. The rear of each of the locos feature doorways to the next engine compartment, and / or the passenger train itself. Combination baggage and passenger car. (I built these cars a while ago, (about 2 years) but they needed better pictures and go with the newer diesel locomotives, so here they are.) three identical passenger coaches The observation coach of the Meramec River Runner. This car lacks the letters BRS (standing for Brick Railway Systems) but it is owned by that line. The train cars by themselves are inspired by the Wabash Frisco & Pacific passenger cars, except these are dark gray and not blue. Their is no LDD file for this train, but comments, questions, complaints, and suggestions are always welcome!
  6. Forest Cottage

    My fourth entry to the CCC XIV, for the Woodland Hideaway category. The layout and design of the house were inspired by this image. The bottom-right window lights up, and the river is made of SNOT cheese slopes. Herbert the hermit lives in a cozy cottage nestled in the Western Woods. He lives a secluded life, preferring to spend his time tending to his gardens, and feeding his many animal friends. More pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  7. Hi! This is my third MOC, it's a Pagoda Temple on a little creek. I wanted to build a winter situation, with the temple on a rocky base. I don't know if i do a good job with the rock, I'm not convinced. Also the water, there are some trick to improve it? What do you think? I can improve it? (sorry for bad english)
  8. Avalonian Village

    The landscape for this scene was built as a commission, and then I finished the build by adding some houses, the fences, and figure activity. After learning that medieval roads often had fences or walls to allow animals to be moved effectively, I wanted to include that detail here. Brother Steven inspired the woodwork on the water mill. This is an entry into the large miscellaneous category of the Colossal Castle Contest. Market day makes for a lot of traffic on the village road as animals are taken to be sold, or purchased and brought home. The watermill is also a popular location as villagers purchase flour and bring grain to be ground. As usual, there are more pictures on brickbuilt. Your feedback is always welcome
  9. Resistance sympathizer King Zalgel has sent Urkan, his chief general, from his city of Griznâg in the depths of the Enchanted Forest of Avalonia to join with his royal cousin, Frykka the Brown, in Nocturnus in battle against the traitorous Black Spire. To get there, the band of orcish soldiers has had to brave many hazards, from fierce-eyed Elvish hunters, roaming human cavalry patrols, deserts, fell beasts, and now, at last, the towering Rakath Mountains. On the eastern side of those lofty peaks runs a river, red as freshly spilled human blood, called the Sayn Gwinos River by those who have made the maps. A single bridge crosses the that crimson stream, passing through the ensnaring webs of many deadly spiders. Will the orcs make it to Frykka's warband alive, to swell the ranks of the Resistance against Raavage's tyrannical reign, or will they perish in the mountains, struck down by noxious rivers and venomous arachnids? Time alone will tell... ___________________________________________________ ...................................................................................................... Introducing my second build for the Nocturnian Minichallenges. The photography hopefully looks quite a bit better for this one as I took some advice I was given and took the pictures outside in a shady spot with my old point-and-shoot digital camera. All the grey for the rocks makes me appreciate LittleJohn's Nordheim Fjall that much more...
  10. This is one of 4 micros I built as prizes for the Guild Creation category of the Summer Joust. This particular model was focused on the landscape of Rauor. Rauor is just a fictional land I made up, and tried to develop the culture and setting of with these 4 micro builds, the rest of which will be posted soon. If you'd like to see more details about the Summer Joust, check that out here: link. Thanks for looking, C&C appreciated
  11. Crossing the river

    A second installment in my story, the first of which you can find here. Again, just messing around with techniques, this time for water. I used decals made by ED 209 here on Eurobricks because I have no Black Falcons. Comments & Criticism appreciated.
  12. Fight at Hunter's Bridge

    My latest castle-theme build; hope you like it, along with the story. The build was inspired by the photo at this link here. Click on the picture for a larger view. ----------------------------- Story ---------------------------- Stepping out onto the boulder, Sir Caelan Munro glanced at the Wyvern River fifteen feet below him and noted how fast the water gushed through at this point. Here the river narrowed greatly into a chute, and with all those rocks amidst the rapids, a fall would equal a watery death indeed. Precisely what he had always heard about this place… ‘Hunter’s Bridge’, they called it. Here a massive boulder from higher up in the Dragonscale Mountains had slid from its perch hundreds of years ago and rolled down until it lodged here, forming a natural bridge over this narrow ravine. It was the only point where one could cross the river safely for dozens of miles up or downstream. Safely being a relative term. Some hunters and the especially-daring had even crossed with horses, but only the most well-trained animals could make it over. His unit of archers, the Scout Snipers, did this when necessary. And today it was necessary. Except it was Caelan’s first time here at this location. “What a place to have to fight Areani,” he thought aloud, refering to the enemy's elite troops. “Why you doin’ that?” Tavish asked him from behind cover. “Why're you always makin’ yourself a big target?” the archer chided. “What’s wrong with an ambush for once?” “You know me,” Caelan replied as he found his ready position on the high rock, “no patience for it. Besides, you’re the ace in the game, remember.” He took in the serene scene; heather in full bloom, gentle wind blowing, sun rays gleaming through the trees, all with the sound of the rapids rushing below him. Hardly fitting for the violence undoubtedly close at hand. Just a few minutes later, two men in dark clothing emerged from behind the dense foliage on the other side of the river and made to cross. Both were armed, covered in mud, and obviously winded from the chase; Sir Caelan knew full well that a posse of his own Scout Snipers were pursuing them. The one with the crossbow hung back while the leader stepped cautiously onto the rock. He was the one they needed, for around his shoulder was the stolen satchel. “Mind if we cross, good sir knight,” he tried the easy way first, “as we must make Durrough by nightfall.” “Come on through. Don’t mind me. But I’ll need what’s in that satchel as a toll.” There was the briefest moment of tension, and the leader made a slight movement with his head. The second man started to raise his crossbow but Tavish’s first arrow flew in from the trees. These men were Areani however, and the man actually managed to deflect it with his own bow. A third Areani now appeared in the background, the one they had left in reserve for just this situation, and he came forward with his own crossbow. Caelan and the leader unsheathed their weapons and went at each other at lightning speed. With no maneuvering room on that boulder-bridge, it was a straight up slugfest, with both men fighting two-handed. As good as he maybe though, the leader was weary from the run. Caelan was rested and had his best armor on. The Areani hung back therefore to let his henchmen help him take care of the ‘obstacle’. They never got the chance however, as Tavish was well-aware of the presence of the third man, having gotten a full report from an advance Scout earlier in the day. His second arrow was already crossing the river as the man stepped out of the shadows—only to catch the expert shot full in the chest. He never even got his crossbow shot off. The other Areani crossbowman was able to recover and, not seeing Tavish’s location had shifted his aim back onto the knight when the archer’s third arrow slammed into his forehead, settling the issue. The leader noted his grim situation, and backed up enough to potentially run back into the trees. Caelan looked at him with little pity, and advised, “Tavish has no problem shooting an Areani in the back. Hand it over.” The leader seemed to come to a new conclusion. Staring coldly at Sir Caelan, he snarled, “Witness how a real man dies!” and jumped into the rapids below. Tavish appeared at Caelan’s shoulder, staring into the gushing water. “Drama queen.” “At least we didn’t have to drown this one in soup this time,” Caelan answered dryly in reference to a past fight with the Areani. “Let’s find the body.” “Oh joy.” Thirty minutes later they came across the body on the eastern side of the river, battered so badly he was now unrecognizable. The satchel however was nowhere in sight, and it took them another two hours to find it. When the archer found it at last, he reached in and retrieved a sopping wet book. “Well lookee here, the diary of one recently-deceased sailor!” he declared. “Poor man,” Caelan stated as he came up alongside. The sailor had been killed by the Areani in their mission to steal the diary. Fortunately he had not gone quietly, there had been witnesses as a result, and the Scout Snipers were alerted in time to pursue what everyone assumed were Areani spies. “Poor idiot, you mean. It’s one thing to keep a diary of your voyage to newly discovered islands, and quite another to brag about it’s existence to the wrong kind of lady friend.” Caelan took the book and thumbed through it. “Spies are everywhere now.” Even though some of the ink had run from the soaking, the book still had enough information to make it worth stealing. “Right,” the archer said wearily, “well let’s get to that little tavern in Weiller village before all the supper is gone. And you’re buyin’.” “What?! You owe me this time!” “I got two Areani today. You’re zero for three.” Incredulous, Caelan blurted out, “And the leader…?!” “He self-eliminated. You just stood there a-gawkin’.” In feigned disgust Caelan slammed the soggy diary back into the satchel and muttered, “Oh you’re all wet….” ------------------------- Comments welcome. Cheers!
  13. Teensietown is a modular LEGO microscale city based on the "Micropolis" standard published by TwinLUG but with some slight amendments that suit us there and then better. It is a growing thing, and most impressive when exhibited. Anyone who cares to look more closely can find an old LEGOLAND-Set, as well as a model of the televisiontower of Prague. Everything else was built from inspiration and imagination. Here you can find a lot of the buildings extracted from the whole thing as well as info on the co-builders: http://teensietown.weebly.com/ Sherv, a fellow of my local LUG, has ignited the whole idea, I am responsible especially for the waterway management, and more recently railroads and highway. The easy thing with the project is for me, that one can build with the parts that one has and doesn't have to buy too much bricks to make it look good. Thanks to the modular system, the city looks different everytime it gets exposed. Some more pics can be found now and then at our LUG's forum (german) here: http://forum.lgoe.at...hp?topic=3563.0 Hope ya like it!
  14. MOC: Rivergate

    This is my second entry in this universe I have devised :D The Rivergate - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/98977 Phantasy Realms The set This set is composed of a fortress like sturcture built over a river. The gates open to let the boat cross but the gates can also close trapping the unaware travellers inside. Four trapdoors open to let the captives be taken or they can also work as traps if someone invades the fortress - making the figures fall into the river. The story In order to protect the entrance to their capital city - Rainbow's End - the Wizards of Colour with the help of dwarven engineers raised a mighty fortress over the Tears of the Peak River, the only way into the magical valley where fairies and wizards dwell, among many other fantastic creatures. The wizards bought a mighty power crystal from the dwarves and draw power from the magical stone in order to activate the fortress' magical defenses. A group of sentinels dares to approach the Rivergate. They bring bad tidings... but Wizards and Elves are very suspicious of each other since the Magik Wars - a very old and long conflict between each other. Will they be able to cross the rivergate or will they fall prey to the wizard's magical trap? P.S. - first entry in phantasy realms is here - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/97483 - if you want to check it out. Cheers
  15. My build for WZ1. While patrolling along the banks of the Arkbri River, two of Aymeri's men find some rather lost Ulandians, that they quickly take prisoner: Figless: I'll wait until I've coordinated with my faction before choosing the next warzone (should I win). All C&C welcome
  16. MOC: Riverside Apartments

    Hi everyone! My latest creation is a much more modern concept than what I have previously built. Its inspired by 1950/60's concepts of what architecture might look like in the future. I had many different ideas of what I wanted to do but the scale was just too big so I've settled with something a little more concise but with varying levels of height and depth. I wanted to have to have lots of outside space hence using the balconies and a stepped design for the building. There is a Cafe/Restaurant on the ground floor, a parking garage underground and several apartments on the upper floors. The interiors are minimalist as I would imagine the future would be. Other features are a greenhouse on the roof for growing food, a high wall to keep out rising river levels and a road where wheels are no longer needed! The hovering bubblecar was a great excuse to use the trans-clear dome I've had for ages. There are so many more ideas I had for what I envisage for the future but couldn't fit them all in so perhaps it'll have to wait until another MOC! Anyway on with the pictures, apologies for the quality, I found the white very difficult to work with this time upon editing! The remaining few can be found on the my flickr stream here https://www.flickr.c...th/16176627059/ Any comments or criticisms welcome!
  17. Black Swan Tavern on Market Day

    The Black Swan Tavern serves the best food in the City of Durrough, especially on Market Day. Click on the pics for greater details. Thank you for your comments & cc, Cheers, Gary
  18. I'd like to receive UoP credit for: trees [Landscape Design], flowing water [Hydrology], and river scene [Geography]= 3 credits Fossgard river is famous for its many waterfalls, the most prominent of which is simply called Fossgard Falls. Many bridges span the river, and Infernum and Glorfindel are now crossing on one of the smaller bridges... "What do you think we're up against?" Infernum asked Glorfindel. "No idea, but I imagine we'll find out within several days. The border isn't far now," Glorfindel replied. "And whatever it is, we'll make it wish it had never come into Mitgardia." This was my first time building a waterfall that splits, and I also tried a new tree technique. All C&C welcome
  19. Built by my 12 year old brother. Kendrick and Basil were walking by a river, Basil was jumping around on the banks as he always does, while Kendrick enjoyed the lovely scenery. Then Basil slipped off the bank and fell into the river... My brother would appreciate any C&C. The next installment in the Kendrick Chronicles will be up soon
  20. This was built by my 12 year old brother. As Basil was carried downstream by the current, Kendrick sprinted along the bank. Soon he saw a fallen tree trunk that lay across the river. Quickly climbing onto it, Kendrick reached as far as he could, straining to catch Basil as the goat swept towards him My apologies that Basil isn't clearly visible in the pictures, I forget to take a close up of him. He's just upstream of Kendrick and the fallen tree. My brother would appreciate all C&C
  21. This was built by my 11 year old brother. Conwy Castle is his largest build yet. Kendrick and his companions marched their captives to the nearest castle: The lord of the castle is entertained by the jester who is juggling some pies: The great hall and kitchen The stables: More pictures here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=535252 He would appreciate any C&C
  22. I made a new Matt Smith: Enjoy :)
  23. A Humble Crossing.

    Mark of Falworth returned from the Magic Isles with the infuriated Desert Prince, who promptly ordered his lords and vassals to fortify the province from any outside attack. Like many other Loreesi nobles, Mark traveled north to the border of Lenfald. Moving along the river that served as the dividing line between the nations, Mark and his companions found a small and overlooked bridge. One of the knights remarked, "We could destroy this bridge, but then our cavalry would have even fewer places to cross over. Yet if we leave it be, the Lenfels or Garhims could have a whole army over this bridge and into Loreos in a day. What shall we do?" Mark replied with a broad smile. "Change the bridge so that we may cross at any time yet prevent our neighbors from doing the same. " "But how shall we do that?" "I will show you, step by step." A freebuild intro to my LC IX entry. Thanks for viewing and have as great day!
  24. Here is My entry to The LCC Global Challenge three Part 2. Please excuse the bad pics.
