My first medieval MOC

Post by AnitaE on Sat 29 Oct 2011, 2:36 am

Over at Eurobricks, the amazingly talented Derfel Cardarn is developing a tutorial on how to build a medieval building. Here is my first attempt

Here is a small barn at the base of the cliff (you can kind of see a staircase cut into the cliff in the background

Here is a small shack using a flipper roof that I have seen someone else use

Absolutely brilliant, Anita.

I love the flipper roof and the cliff; great work.

That tutorial on Eurobricks is fantastic and is a must read for all of us who inspire to make a MOC.

I must complement you on the trees AnitaE, where did you find the apples/fruit? It looks like the perfect spot to send a lazy afternoon.

Thanks to both of you.

I have a love Lego food so will buy sets, just for the Lego food (belville had some red ones if I remember correctly). I also just buy them off bricklink. I was one of those crazy people who bought an earth orange turkey (before the dark orange one came out).

On eurobricks they have given me some ideas to improve it, which I will do.

I can definitely see the Derfel Cardarn influence which I guess means you are successfully following the tutorial. I might have to check it out for train layout scenery ideas. The Sydney train AFOLs seem to be way ahead of us Melbourne ones in scenery, so I'd like to improve.

I quite like the result, my only nitpick being the sharp corners on the stream, I can well imagine that is due to available parts limitations though. I have hardly any wedge plates so I'd be in the same situation.

The flipper roof technique is great, and I'd love to have enough flippers to use it for a modular building. Now to try and avoid going to bricklink ... legosmile2

Thanks Peter, the tutorial by Derfel is great because I also wanted to improve my landscapes. I agree about the stream, it does have really unrealistic sharp corners, I will think more about how I can resolve that for my next try.

I tried some more ideas (trying to apply some of the building techniques in a different landscape).

Anita, that MOC is great.

It certainly looks EVIL.

How did you get the black cones to jut out at angles?

Thanks Brickie.

The black cones are placed on top of brown grass pieces.

Hey Anita

I have also been keenly following the build tutorial by Derfel. For my Xmas build you will see some of the same "cobble stone" technique for the chimney on my Rudolf the Red Nose Airship. I think that tutorial will inspire a real leap in building techniques for anyone who reads them.

Your landscape looks great and maybe we can incorporate something like this for our display next year as part of the "train through the ages" display?

Regards

Brickton

I have just checked the price of brown grass/ flower stems on Bricklink; I might pass on this one.

They only came in cloud city I think. I can't remember how I got them, I assume bricklink because I never owned cloud city (although I wish I had a cloud city Fett (I always forget which Fett is which) he is worth so much.
