  2. My participation to the contest organized by Brickcentral on Instagram. I must admit I didn't understand anything about the organisation of the contest, the votes, the winners... The main thing is not there, it was necessary to make a tree and I am very happy to have taken an old moc to achieve this : 8-headed tree with spiders and a bird. Find the bird !

    [MOC] The Black Serpent

    Hello Lego Castle Fans! for starters - it's going to be a long slow project :) Do you remember 6057 Sea Serpent set from 1992? I've never had this set in my collection, I thought it might be worth building a new version... for Black Falcons fraction! One week ago I started building my first ship project - Medieval Cog "The Black Serpent"! This is still work in progress moc, I have a lot of work to do :) Now, has 43 cm long and almost 900 parts (will be more). Then I will make my own sail, so far I have prepared the material (my old pillow), I painted it white, I still have to paint the Black Falsons logo. But it's not over! I also want buils some area, fragment of sea and coast with some stronghold - for Raven Knights. The next steps are: - complete the ship's design, - make a sail, - order a lot of new parts, - hunt few sheeps from set 10775 I prepared the first material from this project, if you are interested, check out my youtube - Edge of Bricks channel :)
  4. Villa Del Balbianello is a lakeside villa in Italy built in 1785 expanding on an existing structure from the 13th century. With later additions added throughout the years such as relics added from an explorer. It was also featured in films such as Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and James Bond: Casino Royale (2006). Also a set on LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/85ec2902-0e20-40a8-9b18-4a79c9f560af

    A-Frame Cabin

    A-Frame Cabin An architectural icon from 1950 to about 1975, the A-frame is one of my favourite rural homes ever, a triangle-design built for lounging on outdoor decks and staring at nature. I built this cabin inspired, in part, by Harlan Hubbard's book Payne Hollow, about living a simpler life in a hand-built home. The author is considered by many a modern-day Thoreau. Two brothers, Dan and Ethan, burned out on modern working believed that stripping away modern comforts and living more simply in nature would lead to a more spiritually an creatively fulfilling life. They looked for a cabin in the woods and finally found out this old wooden A-Frame Cabin. They fixed up it and now they live there happily. It's not my first cabin in the woods but it was very funny building the "A" structure and trying to add many weird details. I also played with the light to let the scene as deep as possible. To build the basement I ripped off the clever hammers technique by Letranger Absurde. Below few pictures Hope you like it!
  6. Hi everyone! Welcome my latest Castle creation - Kasteelberg. You can vote for it on LEGO Ideas here: https://ideas.lego.com/challenges/1f570af2-79dd-44f3-bba3-07978208f97b/application/fe9f6f32-38fc-455a-9222-2977b1feb891 Thanks so much! :D
  7. My creation from the official Lego bonsai for the competition organised by Brickset.

    Ishizuki Bonsai Tree

    Hi all! Ishizuki is a style in which the tree is rooted wholly within (atop or on the sides of) a large rock. Most of the time the roots are exposed and visible. When I saw all the different bonsai trees that are visible in the background of the Lego designer video of the new bonsai tree set I wanted to build my own bonsai tree. At the beginning of this project I was thinking of the right pot to "plant" the tree in. By chance I found this large Belville swimming pool that was perfect for a bonsai pot. It has a very striking color and a special form that gives a nice contrast to the brown and earthy tones of the bench and tree. While going through my Belville collection I realised that the legs and arms of the figures are pretty nice to form tree branches. Sadly, they are not that easy to connect to anything in the Lego system. But I tried out a lot of connections and in the end found connection points for all different joints. The result is this bonsai tree. Build for the "Build a Bonsai" competition at Brickset I think I need to keep on experimenting with these Belville joints. They are fun to mess around with Best Skalldyr
  9. Hello, I got back into Lego during quarantine and decided to try something unique in the holiday theme. Here's my driving, spinning, Christmas tree. The top part is made with three turntables, with rotation driven by motors at the base. Frictionless pins and/or axles allow the "branches" to raise or lower with centripetal force. I know it's ugly, but I was aiming for a freaky vibe so that worked out Here's a short demo, with some videos of the inner workings too: View from underneath: Side detail closeup More photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/191824083@N05/with/50858767061/ Happy to hear your feedback and design tips. I lurked this forum for a while and learned many building tricks.
  10. 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

    [MOC] Ghostly Hideout

    Hi everyone, It all started with a conversation on the LowLUG forum and someone said that he missed both the Wolfpack sets. I said that a lot of people don't know that there are 3 sets in the Wolfpack subtheme. I bought the set (1596) with 5 other special Castle sets (including Forestmen's Crossing) a few years ago. This is my own version of set 1596: Ghostly Hideout. Sander

    Snowy Fir Trees

    My last creation : Snowy Fir Trees Winter is far away but a few fir trees are already covered with snow ...
  15. Entry for Book III Challenge IV, Category B "The Crown in Daily Life". Memoirs. I jumped out of bed, panicked with the pounding sound coming from the other side of my chamber door. No sunlight came from the outside, meaning it was still dawn. I ran out of the room and there, covered in the shadows of the trees, stood a tall man with a thick brown bush under his nose. - Five minutes. We are going fishing. My father was not an early riser. But if something could take him out of bed before the sun casted its first light, it was important. That morning, he had fetched a horse, tied his bags onto its saddle and prepared breakfast so we would not starve on the road. Make no mistake. It was important. The days in our village were cold, frosty, windy, and slippery. Everyday, through the whole year, through each of the seasons. But there were these other days – only a handful of days, when the gods were good and the clouds would clear out, the wind would stop, and the sun was so warm it made our skins burn. Those were the days my father would go fishing. He taught me the art of catching fish. But not only choosing a bait, casting a net and waiting for a bite. No. He taught me to read the tides and the wind. To hear the forest and perceive the scent of the trees. To observe the animals and learn from their instinctive survival drive. That was fishing for him. - Hear that? It’s a cormorant. This big black bird, called cormorant, I learned, was known for hunting fish. According to my father, no animal in the forest could smell fish like a cormorant bird. So, we would track this big black bird and follow him to the shores, only to find a pond flooded with either salmon, trout or bluegill. - Now, just remember to be patient. Move slowly and steady. Put your hands together and dip them into the water. Feel the flow. Just focus. Breath in. Breath out. It could be a matter of seconds or even hours. - You never go for the fish. You let the fish come to you. And when it does... You grab it. But it sounds much easier that it is. __________ Hope you can all find the hidden crown piece. Let me know what you think. Make sure to check my other entry for category A in this challenge: Louis of Nutwood.
  16. Walden; or, Life in the Woods A few months ago a friend of mine loaned me a book I had always heard of but never read. The book is the well-known "Walden; or life in the woods" written by Henry David Thoreau and published in 1854. Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days (1845–47) in a cabin he built near Walden Pond amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period. It is considered Thoreau’s masterwork. Struck by the history and inspired by the cover of the book, in the few past weeks I built Thoreau's cabin in the wood. It´s the first time that I made a woods-themed creation and I really had a lot fun building it. Hope you like it! For more detailed pictures tap here. Thanks for stopping by!

    [MOC] Fus Ro Dah !

    Hi, I've recently (well, more or less, I began working on it late September) built a MOC inspired by the video game The Elders Scrolls V : Skyrim : For those who don't know the game, the name of the scene comes from a power the main character possesses : the Voice. It allows you to use Shouts which have different effects on your character, your ennemies, or the environment. Having appeared in the the game trailer and subsequently become a meme, Fus Ro Dah is the most famous Shout of the game, which sends other characters and animals flying away. I've been wanting to build a scene from the game for a long time, and while playing it a few months ago, I realized the then-newly released Power Burst shields could be a good representation of the Shouts. To make the action visually striking, I knew couldn't place the characters on ground level, so I decided to build a small cliff where I would place the protagonist. A mere rock was a tad boring, so I've added a ruined tower on top of it, and a tree : I wanted, for each of these elements, to try something new. The cliff is made of 21 one different blocks, each attached to the main structure with Mixel joints. I started from the ground to the top, building each block as I went. I didn't have enough parts to build them from scratch, so instead of ordering a large amount of various slopes, I used Mecabricks to build the MOC digitally first. Thanks to this, I can easily show how the structure looks like without having to disassemble the MOC, and show what each block is made of precisely : The tower is built in a similar manner, except the blocks are stacked and not attached to a hidden structure. Each block is then precisely rotated to eliminate gaps between the curved slopes. Here's how the tower is designed : Only the tree wasn't made with Mecabricks, because I wanted a level of randomness that's easier to attain while building physically directly. The design is based on the large pine tree for which you can find a tutorial on brickbuilt.org, but I wanted to add my own spin to the design and used the tree trunk costume to build the trunk. Not the strongest design, to be honest. And, finally, to add an extra threat to our poor thief, I've added a smilodon. Thank you Lego City !

  18. Hi all. This is my first post in this subforum. I'd like to share my first Ninjago themed MOC that I made late last year with you, a raid on a shrine (and defending it!). Overview Ninjago Shrine Raid 1 by Magma X, on Flickr Close up (of bad guys in action!) Ninjago Shrine Raid 2 by Magma X, on Flickr Alternative view Ninjago Shrine Raid 3 by Magma X, on Flickr (Larger versions available on Flickr). I have no idea what the plots of Ninjago are - I just used some of the figs I had acquired to make a little scene based on a variety of Asian inspired influences (like Ninjago itself really). I hadn't bought any Ninjago sets until a few years ago (the Temple of Airjitsu seduced me), and since then I've bought a few more sets - there have been a number of great sets released lately and I quite like the dragons and buildings. This MOC started from an attempt to build a roof using the "cheese" slopes - getting the centre roof section done took the longest part of the build! The rest of it flowed from there and it was an opportunity to use some of the exotic leaf colours I had acquired to see what they looked like in a MOC. This was built for the "Ninjago" monthly build theme for our LUG. Thanks for looking.

  20. Cactus Brick will be putting on a Western Display at the 2018 Phoenix Comic Fest this week. To prepare for the display, we had a building competition to encourage creative thinking. Yesterday we held the competition and voted on our favorites. Here are some pictures of my entry to the display. Come check out the rest of the display this week in Phoenix. More pictures on Flickr
  21. Hi Folks, I recently finished my 1st MOC ever and would like to present it here. I hope there are some of you who still enjoy looking at walls in strange angles :-) The cartoony style is done by purpose and I didn't aim for realism. The Front - Fantasy medieval like house front - Lego MOC by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr It features some twisted, huge trees, discoloured bricks and taxing techniques. I'm so glad it is finally finished. It was a little bit to tall for a first MOC. I even planed to build a hill as a socket and a forest, too. But I totally underestimated size and weight. I tried to do it mostly by myself without looking at other MOCs and so It took me ages to fiddle out all thouse angles and techniques. The Front - Lego MOC of a fantasy medieval house front by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr There are no half attached bricks or plates. All the angles were done using hinges. MOC1c by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr Cheers!

    Isles of Aura: 'Shrooms!

    I realized recently that it has been far too long since I’ve done a build for the Isles of Aura. I also have been wanting to get to the tree tutorial that I promised for the trees in my Allanar Forest build. So I decided to hit two birds with one stone, and make an IoA build with the tree on it. Keep your eyes out for the tutorial which will be coming later this week! Dear Journal, I took advantage of the pleasant weather today to explore among some smaller islands not far from home. While I have been to all of them before, you never know what sorts of new plants or animals one might find. My trip was rewarded with the discovery of some nicely ripened mushrooms – dinner will have an extra treat tonight! ~Little John More pictures on Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, and as always, C&C is very welcome

    [MOC] Modular City Park

    Hi all. This is my first time posting in the town forum. I just wanted to share a MOC I built for our local Lego show "BrickExpo" in late July 2016, which I only recently had the chance to photograph properly when it was part of a recent LUG collaborative display at the Bricks at Woden School show, and then again when I set it up at home a week or so back. I wanted to build a formal park that was in scale with the Modular buildings, with the aim of having a larger display piece that could be used in the LUG's collaborative layouts. I had already prototyped corner and side modules when LEGO announced the Fun in the Park set, and that set inspired me to proceed with it. So over the course of several months in early 2016 I built all the rest of the park modules. I realised later on in the build that I needed to provide wheelchair access for the new fig, so I turned a side entrance into a ramp and made it the focus of an "opening" scene for the new access ramp. I bought the Fun in the Park set on day one of release and had an entertaining time posing figures (I did use all of them from the set, but one is out of sight on the far side), and thought up a few more minifig scenes as well. The Park also gave me the chance to try some different techniques, especially with the trees, which I made from techniques I saw online and with some variations of my own. Jokingly I refer to it as "UCS Fun in the Park". In the following two overview shots taken at the show, one LUG member built the brick-built roads, and another built the multi-coloured row of town houses in the back. Various members contributed sets etc. Overview 1 Modular City Park Overview 1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Overview 2 Modular City Park Overview 2 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr The Opening of the access ramp Modular City Park 3 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Close up of the Statue end of the Park - a tribute to our founders Modular City Park 4 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr I guess I am a romantic at heart...

  24. Elves is the favorite Lego series of me and my daughter (6) at the moment and we really love the dragons! We thought that there isn't enough space for the little Babydragons to be all together. So with a little help of Farran and the other elves the Baby dragons got a cozy place in a big tree. There are different levels, either to be alone under a warming flower or to be together with another dragon to have a little chat. On the top of the tree there is a platform, well hidden by special growed thornes and willow branches, to watch over the dale and start some flying games. I hope my buidling isn't too big for this contest. We started with 8x8 but were very inspired and couldn't stop adding leaves because it looked so lovely. I just read, that it shouldn't grow over 8x8. If you think it is not working for the contest just tell me. Then I will just show it as a MOC.
  25. Ok, so I never feel quite certain which forum to post my MOCs in. I guess this is the most suitable. This is a character I built during two days. It started with me opening the new Chewie set (75530). I just had to build something with all those new parts! - "You want a flower?" While building the brown figure I noticed his posture and expression made it look a bit scared or startled. So I started thinking about different things that would get this reaction from it. I thought of oil cans and chain saws, but it didn't feel quite right. Then I thought about Totoro. The Japanese Anime where a little girl befriends the Spirit of the forest. So this made me think of a kid, lost in the forest, meeting the big Guardian Golem. The kid offers a flower to the Golem, who is totally in chock to see a plant torn up from the ground like that. Hope you like it!
