Song Before Bedtime
A western themed MOC for TwinLUG's display at a comic convention.
About this creation


TwinLUG is doing a group build for the comic con and the theme is western. We were hoping to pull together a town layout but everyone went in a different direction.



I wasn't sure where to go with the cattle drive until I got that BrickForge guitar and planned on using it around a campfire. Cowboys eatin' some grub, nothing more western than that.



At first it was going to be all cowboys sitting around and that guitar palyer would just blend in with the rest. Certainly he wasn't intended to be the center of attention.



While I was moving the cows around it struck me the cows might enjoy a bit of a tune.



That gray horse is from the new Kingdom Mill Village Attack set. It's really nice looking with it's dark gray spots. I'm using it for my hero horse from now on.



I did the chuckwagon first and started pulling together the minifigs that might fit.





Here's the first shot at figuring out what sort of space might be needed.

All those cows came from the LEGO LUGBULK program. We got 200 cows as a group but I couldn't beat the rest of the guys into making something with that many cows in it. Had to settle for 37 cows. see ya. garth

Rex O'Halloran's got nothin' on this guy (there's an obscure movie reference for ya!) -Glad the cows have some entertainment. Now if only that worked on the ladies.
