About this creation
I suspect Ian, in the Lego room, with the piece separator.

So I've been wanting to do another sepia interior for quite sometime now, but lacked good incentive. Well, upon joining ABS Forever, I found (to my great delight) that they were starting a room contest! I immediately jumped at the opportunity, and voile, here's my entry! That's what you call hitting two birds with one stone.

This MOC is a spin off of the board-game Clue (also known as Cluedo). The classic "who-done-it" pastime presented bucket-loads of Lego fun! I had a blast designing each of the notorious characters. And for whatever it's worth, this creation also wins the award for most jumper plates used out of all my works to-date (and I'm not just referring to the ladies' dresses). If you look carefully, you'll notice that the build's front and back measure an uneven number of studs. This is due to the fact that the carpet technique spans seventeen. As a result, I had to free-mount or jumper-plate every elevated brick in order to give the creation a centered appearance. It was quite a complex feat, but I think it paid off! I thoroughly enjoyed expanding on my crate/wall technique too. I love the paneled effect it creates.

Before going any further, I'd just like to say a massive word of thanks to my good friend Max Pointner. He kindly supplied me with some sixty pieces that were essential in completing the build. Thanks a million buddy! Max has also designed a brilliant set of Clue characters that he will hopefully post sometime in the future.

Now, onwards!





The victim: John Boddy (a.k.a Dr. Black)



Miss Scarlet, with the knife.



Col. Mustard, with the revolver.



Prof. Plum, with the rope.



Mr. Green, with the wrench.

Don't know about you, but I've got my money on this guy.



Mrs. White, with the lead pipe.



Mrs. Peacock, with the candlestick.



The candlestick, in all its glory! I confess I'm quite proud of this simple technique.



So that's how she did it.

Some pics of the build as a whole (below):











The back was an experiment in brick-writing! The plates' original purpose, however, was to keep light from escaping through the inevitable little cracks between the crates and masonry bricks.

Thanks for viewing!

&

Soli Deo Gloria!

Quoting Oscar Sandford Nice candlestick by the way, simple, but I love it! Do you mind if I use something like it in one of my MOCs?
Go right ahead! Of course I wouldn't mind a little credit, but don't feel pressured. :) Thanks for the comment!

Quoting A Sargent By the way, which character do you like to use the most, if you've ever played that game? I prefer Colonel Mustard, I guess. Once again, superb creation!
I like to play as the Col. too! :)

I swear I commented on this, but looks like I didn't. This is really great, Ian! Its like four of your 1800's room combined to make one big one! The use of the crates for the textured walls looks great as well as the new masonry bricks (I wish I had that many!). For some reason, this moc gives me the kind of sherlock holmes feel, sort of like baskerville hall. Anyways, This is a very fine moc you have here, keep it up! Oh, and good luck in the MO's!

Quoting Linnea Stevens Really excellent build here, Ian! You got all the characters really well, and the tiny details on the furniture are great!(a fold-down side on the table?! Awesome!!) I don't even want to think about all the work you had to do with jumper plates. I probably would have flipped the table over in frustration, haha! My ONLY complaint would be the plainness of Mrs. Peacock's dress. She looks pretty basic compared to the other figs. Well, you've certainly given me some great competition, may the best MOC win!
Thanks Linnea! I've got to agree with you about Mrs. Peacock, she was my least favorite of the figs too.

Quoting Tim C I don't know how I missed this absolute masterpiece. There is so much good going on here that it's hard to hit on just a few, so here goes. First off, I love the carpet! At first, I didn't recognize the pieces. I thought it was some strange tile I hadn't seen yet. When I caught on, my jaw hit the floor. Very impressive technique. The overall interior just screams Clue, (though, I've never heard of Cluedo). Love the brick work. The bricks that look like bricks...or whatever. Excellent fireplace and I love the backside of the MOC. Fantastic work on the figs. Especially Plum. And that ain't no ordinary cut on his forehead, a mark like only comes when you been touched by a curse;) Sorry, had to be done. Moving on. I would like to feature this MOC sometime in the future on the Pick of the Week section on my page. Would I have your permission for that?
You've got my full permission! How could I turn down a generous offer like that!? Thank you very much for your support. Oh, and as for "Cluedo," it's just the European name for Clue. I thought is sounded more artsy, hehe.

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy I enjoyed this MOC as much as the board game and the 1985 movie (my most favourite movie of all time). One day I'll build a LEGOŽ boardgame version based on that movie. One day, when I have more time ... (hahaha *sniff*). Anyway, your creation matches the right atmosphere perfectly, interior and figs are spot-on.

Thanks very much Stacy! Although I can't, in good conscience, take full credit for the carpet. I'd seen similar ratios used before. The carpet was just my spin on the technique. Anyhow, it was nice meeting you at BW. Thanks for leaving a comment!

Funny you should mention that. I sent a teaser pic to a couple of my friends early today, and one of them (Paul Vermeesch) said something similar. The answer is: not really. I drew most of my inspiration from the Toad Hall design in an old clay animated show of Wind in the Willows (original story by Kenneth Grahame).

By all means, go right ahead and use the technique! Of course I don't mind if you give me a little credit though. ;) And I think I have played that Clue extension, although I still prefer the classic version. Heh, I know, my descriptions are always slow in coming. Let's just say, I'm a perfectionist. Thanks for commenting!
