I love a good battle scene and really good, properly posed ones are quite rare. This scene, by TheDonald13, has excellent posing and near perfect photography. It feels like you are right there in the middle of it, fighting for your life amongst the little plastic warriors. Minifigs are suprisingly difficult to pose realisticly and Continue reading →
LEGO Castle models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Dragons! Knights in shining armor! Trebuchets & ballistas! From enormous LEGO castles buttoned up for battle to peaceful village market scenes, we’ve got your LEGO Castle needs covered right here.
We need some more Castle up in here. So I present you with this adorable Wizard’s Shack, posted by Dubbadgrim. It’s simple, and that’s okay. I like the little building built right into the rockery and the tree. I do like these little dioramas
Sounds like bad news for the empire, but fortunately two mighty builders Glory_Forever and brick-a-brack stand against the darkness with their colaborative build “Andormar Pantheon”. Fine details abound, including a a footbridge set at an angle that really helps the build jump the grid. Nice work brothers McCLung, with your continued vigilance the “ancient enemy” Continue reading →
This scene by James Pegrum is wonderfully atmospheric, depicting the origins of the Great Fire of London, which ravaged the city for four days in 1666. More than simply building a cool diorama, though, James has carefully planned his photograph to take advantage of the terrific lighting and the placement of his structures, to keep Continue reading →
London resident -Derfel Cadarn- has “Big plans for 2013!” and this model is Chapter 1 in his master-plan to steer away from the conventions and boilerplate of the Castle genre. If Cobblecrook Cottage is any indication of things to come, its going to be a great year for a new kind of medieval groove.
A new style of collaboration was introduced to the Flickr Lego community when a group of builders (myself included) simultaneously posted creations depicting a tribe of polar bear warriors. Check out our creations on the Flickr group and learn how to build your own polar bear.
This miniature Helm’s Deep from Tolkien’s The Two Towers is impressive in its level of detail. George G has captured the towering might of this mountain stronghold, and it looks ready to be defended until dawn. All it needs now is a retinue of Rohirrim to guard its walls, and a few ten-thousands of miniature Continue reading →
Each year lots of traditional castles spring up for the Colossal Castle Contest, but there are a few that depict more exotic themes in the Castle theme such as Fianat‘s Ras-al-Jabar, which displays a set of great-looking Middle Eastern architectural wonders.
When I was buying sets to review, I had wanted to purchase 70501 Warrior Bike, but unfortunately wasn’t able to get it, so I settled instead for 70502 Cole’s Earth Driller, which is similarly sized. Although I still want to get the Warrior Bike eventually, I’m happy I got Cole’s Earth Driller, because it turned Continue reading →
This time of year, we see a lot of great LEGO castles, so it’s nice to see a really excellent presentation of a wonderful castle. Well, this castle by Ichthuz is actually a monastery, but we’ll allow it. Check out lots more photos on Flickr.
I once tried to build a microscale LEGO version of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but never got very far. Bart Willen has certainly been more successful, with a LEGO rendition full of spires and columns atop a cliff. Via MicroBricks.
Mitah Val Karem portrays this scene of the uprooting of a foul tree in the heart of the forest with a great sense of style. It’s a fantastical tree, and much more interesting than most Lego trees. This creation is part of an ongoing saga-telling at Classic-Castle.com.
This castle by ppao 66 is grand and impressive, and I wish there are more pictures to show it off.
Pascal (pasukaru76) calls this little cottage a shack, but I call it adorable. Demonstrating that repetition of a part can yield some interesting results, Pascal uses yellow arch/fender pieces to build a gorgeous thatched roof for his stone cottage. The little tree-shaped hole where the arches meet is also a fortuitous touch.
Many are familiar with the tale of the Pied Piper, the unpaid man with the magical flute by which he deprived a town of their children after they attempted to thank him for public service rather than pay him his due. Cyrille (TheBrickAvenger) has illustrated the first bit of this tale quite exquisitely. There are Continue reading →
