Okay, I'm sorry I haven't posted any of these sets yet, but I figured this one would be the best to show at the time being. It is the biggest with a piece count of 1780 pieces. There are 10 minifigures included, as well.
I also, but the size messes up the annotations. I recommend watching it on YouTube.
... I have a feeling you just want to get onto the MOC, so I'll let you ...
About this creation
This is a basic view of the front from a straight-on angle, unless my eyes deceive me.
This is the scary guy with a knife, who wants to sell you some "chicken." I'm not sure why I included this stand and the other outside, but I think they help establish the set and make up for its lack of functionality.
This is a statue of some Knight, who was so brave that he got a statue. The end. I actually think the designed turned out quite well.
This lady is selling croissants and pretzels, which aren't very Medieval, now that I think of it.
This is the side.
This is the other side.
This is the basement, where you can see the supports for the roof. They are stronger than they may look.
The innkeeper keeps the rent money here. A nifty place to store your coins.
This ghost is a reference to classic Castle, which had a lot of ghosts for whatever reason.
This is the first room, which is mainly just a bed and a chest.
This is like a lobby or something. All I knew was that it need a fountain and blue carpet. ;)
This room has a bed, a chest and a bird cage.
This room is so lively, with its bright pink flowers!
I promised a tavern! Just don't get drunk.. I'm not responsible for that..
Here we have the shoppe, which has an assortment of knickknacks, most of which are of no use. There are a few personal references in here, like the unicorn horn (Reign of the Knights co-creator Awesomeknight1234 has a thing against the Kingdoms theme because they had the nerve to add unicorns, but no other fantasy elements.) and the skeleton key.
The inside ends up blending fairly well. I realize you have to fly to get to the upstairs, but I imagine they would be on the other half of the building, which was cut out to add playability, lol.
10 minifigures, quite a wholesome amount, if I do say so myself.
Thanks so much for viewing this, I look forward to comments, criticism and suggestions below. ;)
Actually, I completely understand this. While studying certain reference pictures, I would often notice cumbersome amounts of support beams, but in others I would see only a select few. My original plan was to use a multitude of 1x1x5 bricks and a few slanted parts of some sort for supports, but I realized that the palisade blocks would look more detailed and had a medieval feel to them. If I had gone with the original plan, I think I would have included more, due to their being thinner. Even then, I can see where the supports could have been placed to even it out and still keep it stable looking. Perhaps one or two on the side, even.
Either way, thanks! I've been away for a bit, mainly because of my transition to a new laptop, which stopped me from uploading content. I've still been trying to get back into the routine, despite a time span of about 3 months.
Oh hey there! Nice to see you back! Overall I'd have to say that my favorite part is the interior rooms and the little details you added in there. However, you asked for criticism, so I'll be honest: the outside looks pretty bland even for the Middle Ages. Having recently done a presentation on the subject for my Humanities class, I can tell you a building of that size would require many more wooden supports to stay standing. There's just too much wattle and daub for it to be stable. Other than that and some more bigger windows, I think that's my only nitpick. It's a good place to start though, just needs a bit more work IMO.
