This fantasy scene by Jonas Wide is so well made and designed that I mistook it for a recreation of an actual European town at first (until I saw the Orc with a cane). So many cool details, like the brickwork on the houses, the big pots in the alleyway, the market, and the excellent usage of micro scale lights to create a mood.
Dwalin Forkbeard unveils a rather well designed microscale castle and accompanying landscape creation. What instantly caught my attention was the excellent execution of the castle's curved walls, and the main gateway. It's also really nice to see the inclusion of the different buildings that would house important figures, considering the small scale.
This medieval scene by Graham Gidman is everything you could want in a vignette. The Summer Joust 2017 medieval building contest is challenging its participants to create a captivating scene on an 8x8 stud base, with minimal overhang. There has been a steady flow of submissions for the category, but this one made me stop and look more than any other. Not only is it just a plain good scene, but its design is executed very well by Graham. There's emotion captured by the minifigures, the action is clear and amusing, and there's just the right amount of detailing here to really make you feel that it's part of something bigger. I also appreciate how the rock formations aren't built in a simple way, rather they have just the right amount of angling to look organic and disturbed. A small build that speaks volumes, for sure!
No one can deny the beauty of an all-LEGO scene. Gid617 has spotted a castle ahead, perched on a hill above the forest. Excellently crafted with simple parts, this castle must be visible for miles. With its many towers and flags, it looks like this castle will stand the test of time. A lovely scene!
