Watermill functions video
This MOC was originally built for BrickCon 2008 and has sat in a "Mostly finished state for over a year taking over my LEGo table. It's time it goes, so I finished it off quick and here it is.
I'm not particularly proud of the castle, but I think most of the landscping came together quite nice.
There are alot of details in the gallery/set.
Hokay, so here's the story I worked up in my head:
This small border outpost was attacked by some rabble during the winter, only causing some damage to the front wall and burning the barracks.
Now spring has come and the baron in charge of the area is able to pay a visit. He is coming to check up on the progress of the new barraks, while the town patriarch wished to discuss paving the courtyard to quell the mud...
The miller takes a break upon the arrival, while the Inn maid and stableboy finish their tasks.
Not even the stable boy is aware of the secret passage under the stable.
The diorama features a working waterwheel and millstone, secret passage, and more than enough rockwork to drive me crazy...
