Court of the Lions

There are many beautiful places in the world, and it’s always a delight to see one well executed in LEGO. pérula‘s Patio de los Leones certainly falls into that category. I like the composition of the photo; the central fountain the plaza is quite recognizable. The micro-scale lion sculptures are excellent, especially considering their size!

Winter comes for the Black Falcons

Temperatures are dropping in the northern hemisphere and winter approaches quickly. Gerard Joosten has helped the black falcons prepare with this lovely Winter Fortress. As a long-time Castle fan, I love the traditional Black Falcon colors which make it highly recognizable. The walls themselves manage to mostly avoid the “great grey wall” syndrome with nice texturing and architectural elements.

What I love the most, though, is this gorgeous Black Falcon mosaic decorating the back tower. The details are fantastic, and give a lot of character to the build.
