Mountain Border Outpost Main image

Newer Older

Finally done...
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...

    ^I'm able to both click all sizes and note. It's probably because he hasn't marked you as a contact.

    I love the way the snow is spread!
    The small waterfall is really natural

    Wow, so awesome! I actually got out my Legos (not my son's usual Duplos) and played with him the other day. He's a little young, but still loved pulling off helmets and putting them back on. Of course he made me build three firetrucks.

    But this is a really awesome creation. Love the landscaping.

    I remember making my dad build firetrucks and trains when I was little with LEGO still. It's a great bonding 'tool' and creative outlet. I'm glad to hear you busted out the brick, I hope you have many more great builds with your boy!!!

    Just the texture of the landscaping alone makes this an epic LEGO presentation. Four thumbs up!
