Ryan Hauge, of BrickWarriors, just posted this fun little scene of an assassin training their apprentice. The timbered roof is cool and the crazy green flames in the fire make me smile, but the archways over the doors and fireplace really make this standout. I also have to mention that four-poster bed. The finials on the bedposts? BrickWarriors’ Magic Wands. Nice touch.
Ryan told me that this is a scene from his new book, now available on Amazon, also called “Riddle of Regicide (Pentavia Book 1)“.
Henry F. (AKA Dubbadgrim) has risen from the dead and created this hilarious little scene. I love the effect of the creature bursting through the floor! It’s really extremely well-done.
The CrazyBricks Mouse Guard Kickstarter project has fully funded and is on it’s way to cool stretch goals! If you want in, you have less than five days left. Go get your Black Axe!
Vitreolum has some shenanigans going on in the shade of this wonderful, Middle-Eastern inspired fortress. I especially like the use of plate hinges to texture the walls and using orc swords to replicate the hinges on the door is brilliant. I also have to comment on his fig posing. Without those three figs, this build would be nice but dead. The simple placement of the guard looking over shoulder and the “traders” on the ground below really makes this come alive.
This macabre scene by Letranger Absurde strikes just the right chord. The subdued colors of the landscape, the superb stone arches and the sense of suspense all come together nicely. It gives me the chills…
Mark Erickson has done it again. Mark is one of the best Castle builders out there and he doesn’t stop. This particular creation is loaded with lovely details. From the waterfall to the trees, from the rockwork to the styling of the castle itself, this is a very well-thought build!
Flickr user kumpel kante presents a gorgeous build featuring ruins (a personal favorite) of ancient civilizations, re-purposed for more nefarious uses.
There are tons of great details hidden amongst the ruins. I invite you to spend some time looking at the great architecture and sculpting he used to create this!
In recent years, “Castle” building has begun to encompass more and more non-military scenes, which is a pleasant change of pace. Well-tended gardens, so prevalent on the estates of the wealthy during the middle-ages, however, are still relatively rare. That’s why it was a nice surprise to see this lovely garden diorama by Joshua.
I particularly enjoy when a build just grows organically, after you sit down, and start putting things together. The idea just flows and in the end, you have something pretty amazing.
This particular idea started out just with the broken wall at the very back of this old, decayed manor. It grew from there, and eventually worked it’s way into what you see now.
This was a fun project for me to figure how to take something so fragile and get it safely from one corner of the country to another. So the base is entirely modular and comes apart, and the rockery can be moved around.
