A Medieval Street (inspired by RebelRock and Darkspawn) laden with medieval buildings and a coach.
About this creation
This creation started with the the carriage. I built it as a whim...but after driving it around, and placing figs in and on it, I wanted to expand the fun. I looked at some different creations built by RebelRock and Darkspawn , and built a small street, flanked by three buildings.
I wanted to go with that down hill look, and thought it would be neat if the buildings were along that idea as well.
An overview image shows the whole street, coach, and buildings.
Without the wagon...
The third and last building I built was the yellow prison...Looking at those walls would make any criminal turn from his life of crime!
The second building I built was the Public House, or PUB...One of the favorite buildings of knights and peasant folk, throughout the kingdom!
The first building I built was a medieval style house, I think it turned out really well.
The interior of the Medieval house...
The upper level shows one of the weapon trained men of the town, he has just risen from slumber and slipped into his clothes for today...off to work!
The lower level shows his table, stove for warmth, and the stairs to reach his room.
The interior of the PUB...
The upper level shows plenty of fun! These fellows may have had a bit too much to drink, and one is about to fall down the stairs!
The lower level shows a fellow chasing the barmaid up the stairs and another fellow eating some cherries and drinking some grog.
Another view of the lower level.
The interior of the prison block...
The upper level shows a prisoner...and the upper floor.
The lower level shows the Sheriff (Whom is thinking if the noise and racket, from next door, doesn’t stop soon, these prisoners will have some cell mates!) and another cell, also alive with a prisoner.

Another one...but from a different view...
OH, looks like Garrett "The master thief" has targeted the duke's coach...
That guard is about to be yanked off of the carriage!
The "Trunk" of the coach is full of the driver's supplies.
AH, the duke he seems to be having a nice outing...
...His company may or may not be having so much fun though.
That coach sure is loaded down...must be all those boxes of illegal arms...
"Riding shotgun" This is one of the dukes oldest and most trusted guards, he has been "Riding shotgun" and guarding the Duke's coach for years, and fought off many a bandit! In one of these battles, he lost his left eye, he has never thought of leaving the Duke’s service, but not many others would hire him. His best friend is the driver, and is never far from his side.
The extra guard was hired after one too many attacks from bandits and thieves, the duke was fed up of loosing profit, so he hired this fella'. This is his first ride, and he hopes to make a big impact on the duke!
The driver of the coach is the oldest of the dukes hired men, the first person the duke ever hired actually! The driver knows horses better than humans, which sometimes gets him a slap in the face. His best friend is the "Shotgun rider" and is never far from his side.
Garrett (From the "Thief" video games), will, soon, either be very dead, or very rich!
Very good village, and it captures a good theme too. I really like the slope effect. You don't need to use fancy piecing techniques to make good roads, I can say. I never would have thought of some of the great parts of this.
This looks really great overall! Love the slope effect. The carriage looks cool too. As for the interiors, the pub was my favorite. Interesting bit of trivia: back in Russia (my nation of origin), the words “public house” were slang for “bordello”. I’d love to see a fight scene between the thief and the guard who’s riding crossbow (the redshirt newbie will be inevitably PWNed by someone). In my opinion, the biggest thing that keeps this MOC from looking its awesomest would be the yellow color scheme of the prison – it just looks so out of place that it distracts attention away from the rest of the MOC.
OOOOOH! I like this, like, a lot. The street is great, and the buildings are totally awesome!
I like it

This is a really nice scene. The buildings are excellent and I like the cart and your choice of minifigs.
My feedback though would be that the road looks a little bare, how about some foliage or rocks etc? But don't let this detract from how great this MOC is!
This is a nice little street. I'll iterate on the fellows below that the slope effect is pretty neat. I don't know if you've been to europe before, but that type of thing is pretty common. Now the yellow building... are you color blind or what? :P
That's gotta be the coolest midevil town street I have ever seen. If you take away the sloped street - please don't, it's awesome - and stick a hay wagon in there, it'll look just like a scene in a book I once read. =)
Ok, this is seriously COOL! And I was going to mention about it being the first sloped medieval town moc I've seen but Youngy beat me to it. A wonderful job alround mate. I think the only thing funny about the yellow prison is that the roof is yellow too; maybe it should contrast with the yellow walls and be dark grey or something (depending on your bricks of course). Well well, if only TGL made Castle sets this good...
That yellow and white building looks a little odd, but the other two are very well done. And arraying them along a downhill grade is a nice touch, I don't think I've seen that done in a medieval town slice. You have a lot of dark gray and dark blay plates...
