Giorgos Solomonidis calls this build “A Typical Cottage” but I think there are a number details that really make this stand out. I love the rickety look of the fences and the ramshackle aspect of the roof really catches the eye. The color palette was well-thought out and is colorful without being garish or too busy. The brick-built cows are a nice touch too!
This caught my eye and I just had to share. Isaac S. has built this lovely little wall section, complete with tower. The lines on the corner are just lovely and I like the combination of different brick types to give a nice “wall” feeling and avoid a plain grey wall.
Just as impressive is the apothecary behind the wall:
The traditional LEGO vignette (on a 6×6 or 8×8 base) seems to be less in vogue these days than it was a few years ago, but this slightly larger vignette by Matthew Oh has such a great sense of motion that it instantly caught my eye. Depicting the Biblical miraculous destruction of the ancient walled city of Jericho, this vignette makes excellent use of implied motion to draw the viewer in.
Inspired from the Warcraft video games, Ilia (Combee) has created this wonderful little ogre camp:
He’s done a fantastic job of capturing the visual style in the game, not an easy feat given the round nature of the tower and hut.
César Soares (csar_soares) says that this medieval tavern is his first Castle-themed model, and only his fifth LEGO model that he designed himself. That’s frankly a bit hard to believe given the detail and the polish, so I’m going to make myself feel better by assuming that César means that it’s the fifth he’s posted publicly. Because look at that roof and those walls!

And since we haven’t featured César on The Brothers Brick before, here’s some lovely microscale landscaping, with a train heading into a tunnel under a mountain, atop which perches a very precarious castle:
It floats before you, a bulbous body with a central, unblinking eye, and a large maw filled with daggerlike teeth. Smaller eyes, attached to wriggling stalks, sprout from the top of the orblike body.
Such is the Beholder, one of the most legendary and feared monsters from the annals of the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual. This incarnation, brought to us by Guy H. (V&A Steamworks), may look a bit cuter than Gary Gygax had in mind, but is no doubt just as deadly to your party.
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.
