Toltomeja and Lego_fan, two Polish builders, have collaborated to bring us this amazing layout. It goes on display for zbudujmy.to LUG’s summer exhibition in Swarzewo, Poland. You’ll be able to see it in person until the end of August!
There are plenty of pictures to go around, so I invite you to pour over this gorgeous little seaside castle and town and take in all the details.
Sometimes, the most efficient way of getting someone’s attention is to light a really big fire. Sergeant Chipmunk brings us an excellent rendition of the Beacons from Lord of the Rings, which you may remember as being a relatively important plot point in Return of the King.
I particularly like the rockwork in this one. And let’s face it: nothing says party like a massive bonfire.
Halhi 141 drew inspiration from Luke Watkins Hutchinson and his medieval building guide to make this beautifully brackish inn. Had I just seen the photo I’d thought the creation was made by the castle master himself.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada, USA for another round of Friday Night Fights! After a two week Brickworld hiatus, we’re back in a tiny way! After seeing all the great mega builds, we’re going micro … Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
In the green corner we have Kristi (customBRICKS) with the very classic 4 tower castle:
In the white corner we have Barton Thinks with Helms Deep:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding who’s the cheesier builder by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Say Cheese, It’s a 3-3 tie – which is appropriate as there was some mischief posting and both builds were actually Grant’s – opps! Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
Set in the collaborative fantasy LEGO world of Guilds of Historica, this ancient lighthouse with middle-eastern features was created by Gideon_83. I like the inclusion of fire and smoke in this build, which is further enhanced by the use of lighting bricks. It looked very nice at Brickworld last week during the traditional “Festival of Lights”!
You could be forgiven for thinking this castle scene by JP_Creations is a work in progress. Well in a manner of speaking you’d be right, because it’s a scene of a work in progress!
I don’t build castles often, but I love looking at them, and what’s better than one castle? Two Castles… together! Castle uber builders Asimon481 and ZCerberus teamed up to create this wonderful 80 x 288 stud diorama:
It’s another great example of builders coming together to achieve awesomeness. The layout is actually comprised of three separate pieces that flow seamlessly together:
Check out some of the great details here.
This landscape diorama by Patrick Massey (MassEditor) conveys a foreboding sense of emptiness and silence. The integration of the rocks and the tiered rise of the landscape is very skillfully made.
I may or may not be a sucker for pretty ships. So this definitely caught my eye. Can I just say how much I LOVE that custom sail? Frankly, this is just pretty all around: the attention to the waves, the stylings of the hull, the rigging…Yep. Pretty.
Bravo, Gabriel (qi_tah). Bravo.
This stately house of drink stands guard above a lovely quayside village market. Flickr user Gary^The^Procrastinator has done an excellent job polishing the diorama and inserting just enough bright colors to make it come alive. It’s always good to remember how important scale is to creating realistic models: an official LEGO tavern would probably sit on an 8 inch footprint, but this model is closer to 30×15 inches. This gives it room to breathe and encompass detail without becoming crowded.
