Waiting on repairs
Sir Klumsay didn't mean to break his sword, so waiting for it to be repaired was boring indeed.
About this creation



Whilst practicing the honorable act of swordplay, Sir Klumsay misjudged his swing and bent his trusty blade on a stone pillar. Out of action and out of a sword, he spent his time at the smithy's forge playing with the smith's pet chicken.



Hey, they didn't have TV back then, so what in the heck was he supposed to do?



Seriously, these are some test shots for an upcoming scene in Glomshire Knights. I wanted to modify the Blacksmith Attack set so it looked as though it were set up along the city wall with water flowing in from the moat. It should do the trick. Now to get back to work on the comic... unless I decide to do some more MOCing!

You're right, the finished version in the lounge is better, but this idea is sweet in general.

Scratch that last comment... I really must learn to research things before I comment :) Just checked the set out on Brickset. I like it very much.

That water wheel is gorgeous. Is that from the set or your own design? I admit I don't actually know what set this is you're referring to.

Quoting Chris Phipson He's not gonna choke that thing in public is he? (agree with the placement ideas from below but looking good on design!) ~ Chris.
Finished version is viewable in the GK WIP thread in the lounge.

I agree with Mr. Ice Cream below me. Maybe if you rotated the mill or moved the water a bit it would make some sense. You could even make the water flowing into a fountain farther along in the castle if you continued it on a perpindicular path from the wall. Just some ideas. Either way, I can't wait for the comic.

Quoting I Scream Clone The problem with the water course Dennis is it takes a 90% turn. It doesn't seem like it would have sufficient directional power to turn the wheel well enough. Perhaps make the water area extend into the castle at least where the wheel sits, you could even run a small via duct to above the wheel and have water flowing onto the top of the wheel, utilising gravity as well to drive it?
Yep, you're right. I'm going to modify it some more with your idea in mind. The idea for the joke came into my head while tinkering with this, so I hadn't thought it all the way through. Dang you, comedy!
