Miniature version of 10193 Medieval Market Village

Postby eti » Wed Feb 25, 2009 1:37 am



I'm not a real castle builder so I don't visit this forum much - but I'd like to show you my miniature version of 10193 Medieval Market Village.

Here are some detail views - first the tavern, with some furniture inside:

And here is the smithy:

Image Image Image

Here are a few close ups of everything thats going on outside - the blacksmith, the table and the market stall:

Image Image Image

Finally an image of all the animals (two cows, a horse and carriage, three undefined brick built birds) and the tree, and a picture that shows the houses when they are closed with the hinges:

I haven't even looked up yet whether somebody else has done this before, maybe I'll go look for that....

Bravo good sir. Bravo. I think you've captured the full size version remarkably well!

Darn, you beat me to it! Well done though, especially the details of the blue tavern. That's a lot of cheese slopes all over the place. I like your use of the headlight brick for windows, and adding the hinge feature rounds it all off nicely. Again, well done!

This is just amazing. The amount of detail you've got within the size restriction of mini really takes mini to whole new level. The tree, the cows, it's all impressive. I'm not to into the figs and the birds but if you're looking to recreate a set I guess there's no half measures.
Well done,

I already commented on this over on the Lowlug forum, but it's so good, I'll comment again here ;)
Brilliant job on capturing the set in that scale. It looks more recognisable than I could ever expect!

Thanks all!
i agree the birds aren't that good - but a round plate + claw plate looked equally silly at least so I ended up just putting a little claw in a headlight because it looks about as chunky as what they made in the set....

Wow this is great. I like the detail. You should put it next to a minifig for scale comparison.

Wow. :shock: This is stunning the amount of detail you have included in such a small MOC is wonderful. :D

This is really cool, eti. Wonderfully creative design, especially the walls and interiors. I quite like that little stall too.

Too bad the interiors have to be so cramped, but it can't be helped.

This is brilliant, and I agree with the other posters. I particularly like your cows.

Well, this forum is for Castle creations, right?
If there's one thing I am NOT good at , it is creating MOCs that stick to a certain theme. Even my Job Muller entry had a robot in it... so the first robot I ever made was for a Castle contest... well, you see what I mean.
So that's why I normally post in generic forums like Eurobricks, Lowlug and 1000Steine, that are not theme specific...

But I recently started a fairy tale series (well, just Little Red Riding Hood thus far), I don't know if that's castle-like enough for here...
