After not uploading for an extremely long time, here it is: The winter outpost.
We may be ready to head into summer, but I began work on this moc with a winter theme in mid January. My goal was to go for an outpost in a swamp which looks as f it were built among the natural terrain. With the rock formations, pools of water, and the trees in close proximity to the blacksmith shop, I believe that in my mind, I captured this feel quite nicely. I originally intended to build this mod using only parts I currently own. I sadly was not able to stick to my $0 budget and ended up spending $144 to complete it. Another challenge besides the cost was the fact it is built on a baseplate. When attaching new sections or even single parts, whole other sections would pop off and force me to start anew. I did not use minifies in the final photo shoot because I thought that they would distract viewers from other details. Overall, this was a very frustrating though rewarding build which taught me one lesson: Don’t use baseplates in the future!
About this creation
Here are some photos of the exterior of the blacksmith shop and the surrounding terrain.
The shop does have a fully functional interior complete with an anvil, hammer, fire pit, and even a rack of completed swords.
Here is the main rock formation out of which the outpost walkway was built.
The king’s throne and a market stall.
A view of the watch tower by itself.
A view down the center, and a final overhead view.
Thanks for viewing and please leave a comment with your thoughts on this build.
