Mill 'n' Mine
To some of those BrickFair '09 members out there you may remember seeing this one. So here it is. Enjoy!
About this creation
Mill 'n' Mine

Definitely up there on my best creations list, Mill 'n' Mine was really from a lot of sources. I could give you links but as that would take a couple pages I won't. Enjoy

My ever popular birds nest.

My one and only shot of the waterfall. It was very impromptu job. Looks like it too huh?

As you can see the Dwarves guard the mien day and night. Of course they don't want anyone to get hurt.

Child abuse!!!

The mine elevator that ascends from the mine bringing all kinds of treasures.

Heres a good shot of the Ivy running up the side of the mill, the flower garden, and the rushes. Notice the water lilies and cattail.

The old carpenter is cutting some boards for some more fences.

The gatherers in the wheat field. I couldn't get a good shot of it but the guy on the left is holding a scythe.

Deborah is feeding the hens. They must love her.

Theres some sheaves of grain being stored up for winter.

The sweeper cleans the freshly paved roads under candle light.

The Dwarves begin to tunnel toward the surface as they pave the roads behind them. Cute, eh?

The tunnel connecting the elevator and the shaft.

An old Knight who fell into a hole that closed up. Notice also the clever little design for the roots of the tree which was right on top of it.
All in all this creation is over two feet tall. Also this was voted 5th for all Castle Creations at Brickfair.

I have left the group so no need to worry! You have made a MOCpager feel very UNCOMFORTABLE!!!!

I am so sorry I do not have all the money you have to put together my models. I added them 6 and you removed all of them, you commented please refrain from submitting contest entries. So I went to the MOCathlon page to remove my 4x4 only to find you erased all 6! If you look at the rules it says: There are no rules - hence - I find what you did distasteful!

again WOW =D, well I will start with windmill what is absolutely great, but what I really like is that your head is full of ideas, and that you can use in very nice way, especially nature (tree, birds nest, waterfall, river, flowers, wheat field... ). I also very much like interior of mine, elevator and that poor dead knight :(

Quoting King Borether Although you disobeyed the giant red warning sign on my homepage, I just couldn't resist leaving this uncommented on. Cool idea for the crows nest, and the roots for the trees are genious!
OOPS My b man I'm sorry. Thanks any way.

Quoting Blake B. Love it, you're an incredible builder. The mine rocks. You have some extremely rare pieces, such as that French Bread loafs, and I've never seen those mushrooms before. Not even Kelso has those, he uses Construction Helmets on tubes. I'll spread the word of this MOC to my 'Friends in High Places'. You'll be one of the best MOCers here.
K man thanks. I would appreciate that being new here. BTw the Shrooms were from Brickforge. I got them at Brickfair so I am not sure if they are on the website.

I was there, and this was one of the nicest high-detail-density MOC's of all. I just cannot get over how you nailed the cat-o-9 tails with the antenna and the brown 1x1 cylinder!!!
