Medieval Street Scene shelf ornament
Built for the bookshelf in my office at work.
About this creation
It's been a bit of a dry year so far. What with buying a house and also working through some of my backlog of sets to build, I haven't had/made much time for MOCs.

Something I've wanted to build for ages though is a little medieval street scene to go on my bookshelf at work. Over a couple of weekends in August I finally made this happen, so here it is.

Despite superficial similarities this actually wasn't at all inspired by the official Medieval Market Village. It's more based on a few ideas from unfinished MOCs (or discarded features of finished MOCs). I almost exclusively used 'old' parts and colours since this will live in my office and I didn't want to deplete my 'new' part collection too much. It ended up being a little bigger than initially intended - 38 studs long when closed, 67 when open (including overhang). Not that I mind!

On to the photos...

As you can see here the two buildings of the MOC fold closed - obviously the main photo above has them opened out. I'm not sure how I'll display it at work.


Here are a few shots of The Dragon's Den - a smithy and adjoining watchtower, complete with blacksmith Julia (kind of an Ultima reference for those who care).






Panning across the shared courtyard, with a sample of Julia's wares in the first photo.






The Lion's Tail - fine bows and crossbows, run by the brothers Wolfe (my clumsy explanation for lion shields and wolf flag!):


The rear view and obligatory bird's-eye view:




Time for some interior shots, starting with Julia's smithy and tower:




The view from the front door through the smithy proper:


Above the forge:


Working our way up the tower, the top of which lifts off for access to the bedroom on the top floor:








And into The Lion's Tail, where one of the Wolfe brothers is looking to negotiate the sale of one of his crossbows. If I hadn't plonked a stool in the middle of the main shop floor these two might have been able to seal their deal upstairs.




Finally a shot of the courtyard, complete with the other Wolfe and their little hand-cart. I'm inordinately proud of this cart, mostly because I managed to build it using only 9 pieces.


Thanks for looking! Hopefully I'll have some more to upload soon...

Oh man, I sure would like to work in your office with such a fine display. Since I work at home I can totally relate to decorating the "office" :) I just hope you never need to run by the office at night when you need some grey parts or something :D

Very cool, Romany. I didn't see this when you posted it, but I'm glad to see you're starting to post some stuff again. I like the overall look of it. The armor on stands is a great effect. Some medieval mannequins? I also like the splashes of color you've thrown in there. This has got to look great on a bookshelf. Great work!

Quoting Deus Otiosus Very oldschool, but it looks a bit too two-dimensional from the first picture - I have only really started to apreciate it when I saw the aerial shot.
Thanks the for the comment - and I see what you mean. I wish I'd taken a three-quarter view shot before I took it to work!

A good looking scene, which reminds me of places in York. I like the details, such as the anvil and the stones in the main arch. All of the various small stories, hidden in the MOC make it interesting, with lots to spot & notice. Nice work!

Fantastic! This has a really authentic feel to it. I think you should display it closed.
