Lionshead Tavern (Brickvention Collab with E.B.)
Here we have my collaboration with E.B at this years Brickvention (way back in January) a Lego convention over in Melbourne Australia. The MOC is a fantasy castle MOC of a Tavern in the countryside. Hope you enjoy :) Also BIG thanks to Instant Noodles for making that awesome cover photo!
About this creation
I had a blast at Brickvention and will be there next year with Eli, so come if you can next year :D
Anyway to the MOC!



Here we have an overview on the whole diorama, half of it is Eli's and the other half is mine, I'll point out who's is who's in the pictures below. My side has the Tavern, and his side has the river.



While we were there we won Best Under 16 MOC, Very happy we won that, lot of work was put into this!
Yes that is my real name too. Also the number of bricks is very wrong by the way, it's more like adding another zero on the end.



Here is a close up of the Tavern on my side, a lot of my side was based off the very talented Derfel Cadarn check out his stuff, probably the best castle builder out!



Over onto Eli's side, here is his sick waterfall, looks great huh?
You can just see the line between the two sides, just by that dwarf.



More on Eli's side, here is his windmill and river, everyone loved that windmill.



My side now, here we have a swamp and a little farm. Funny the pigs with the mud on them are Eli's, despite it being on my side :P



My side again, a rich couple walks over to the Tavern.



Another angle of the swamp (On my side)



Inside the Tavern, sorry about the meh quality in this picture, these were taken at the convention so not the best conditions for photos.



Another angle of the outside. Also you can see Zethlin, A Bioncle MOC of mine next to the diorama, he was there too :)



Grass and weeds (Still my side)



Here you can see some werewolfs about to rob the rich couple. On the second public day we made them actually attack them :P (my side)



Yet another angle of the swamp (My side)



Sorry for bad quality picture again :/ Anyway still my side, just by the swamp here.



Same thing, different angle.



Close up of the mini farm (my side).



Over onto Eli's side now, here is a horse and cart :)



Here in this picture we have all of Eli's side, the rest (that you can't see in this picture) is my side.



A close up of Eli's windmill, gotta love how he used those minifigure hands!



On Eli's side we have a troll under the bridge, we bought that guy at the shops there.



The path away (Eli's side)



Pedo child at the top of the waterfall :P



Again Eli's cart.



Eli really did a great job on this waterfall!



Onto my side now, here is the entrance to the Tavern.



Another angle.



The Ewok in the window there was a challenge for the guests.



Elf in the window.



A guard and signpost on Eli's side.



A birdsnest in Eli's tree.



Eli's farm.



My pig farm.



Tree by the swamp on my side.



Back inside the tavern.



Close up of the bar.



Fireplace.



The icecream as smoke was a last minute thing, I originally had Ninjago white snakes as smoke, but I left them back in Perth (facepalm) so someone lent me these.



Another bad quality picture, sorry about that.



The Dragonborn has a drink.



A brawl waiting to happen!



Dovahkiin watches the Orc's



Some Dwarves outside the Tavern, off to get a drink.



And here my side sits back home in Perth :)



And here's a little teaser for my next post :)


Fourth Wall Commentary:
I really enjoyed building with Eli (Who by the way is in another side of Australia, we did all the builing and communication through Skype :P) I'm looking forward to working with him again on next years collab.

Well this is my first proper castle MOC, I'm very proud of how it looks and I hope you like it too!

Next post will be that Bionicle above :)
Thanks for viewing folks!

Well, that was FREAKING AWESOME. ahem... Sorry, lost control there. I like the house and the river, they look very cool! I like the minifig hand-thatched roof thing, It looked pretty cool. But... THERE'S ICE CREAM COMING OUT THE CHIMNEY!!!! XD (I apologise, I don't know enough about system building to offer proper critique, everything just looks awesome to me) Anyway, well done for winning that trophie thing, can't wait to see the Rahkshi

Glad you like it man :D HAHA the chicken thing was last minute, I actually left the guy who was meant to be there back in Perth with the Snakes for smoke :P But that looks so much better :P Anyway glad you like it. I will be doing another collab with Eli next year for Brickvention, so stay tuned for that. Plus I will do other fun castle builds :)

Very, very nice build Ben! Good to see more bio-MOCers building castle! Love the interior of the tavern! The best part is the cyclops being served a (live?) chicken. XD. I can obviously see the DC influence, but it still has a little of your style too. Anyway, awesome work! Do you plan to make more castle creations? If so, I can't wait! :D

Congratulations on a fantastic collab. Very well deserved. All the landscaping is stunning and that tavern is wonderful. Love the idea that taverns are neutral ground for ally and enemy. Except for droids, "We don't serve their kind here." ;) Great job.

All those little details around the Moc itself. The water is very cool! Since I'm not much of a system builder, I really couldn't say more. Nonetheless a WIN well deserved! Also Rahksanne looks pretty cool! ;)

Pretty good, I myself like the medevial era and I happen to have more castle than any other theme I have. Looks great .
