I am a relatively new fan of Lego. We couldn’t afford them when I was a kid, so I never really had a chance to get interested. After we got my son the skeleton tower I was hooked! I am a HUGE fan of history and anything fantasy/medieval so this was a natural fit. I started on craigslist gathering bricks and LDD and did some Starwars MOCs (Snowspeeder, ATST, Probe Droids, BSG Vipers, and a Tank) until I had enough bricks to start my first castle MoC.
I just completed my first Castle Moc about 3 weeks ago; it’s a Blacksmith Shop ( http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=451527
), but I think I went a bit overboard with it. I just posted it in the castle mocs section
My next project I just started on is a Medieval Inn/Tavern and it’s going to be pretty big. I just discovered Brinklink a little over a month ago, so I’m having a lot of fun this time! I don’t really know many building techniques, i am just learning as I go, but some of the projects I have seen on here are truly humbling... I swear I could stare at some of these for hours!
My son loves both the castle theme sets and Starwars so we have a lot of fun together

I haven’t posted much yet on BS, but I finally got some pictures of what I have done so will be putting a bunch of pics up there soon!
Here is me when I was first starting out with my first moc (ATST) about 5 months ago.
Glad to be a part of this community!
