Holt Windmill

Postby soccerkid6 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:52 pm

Another build influenced by Skyrim, the windmill is based off of the typical windmills seen in game. I also tried to replicate the tundra look that is common in many regions of Skyrim. This was my entry to the 2017 Brickstory contest, for the Early Middle Age category. The model features working windmill blades and grindstone, both simultaneously operated by a crank on the back of the windmill.

Glorfindel and Dedan visit the windmill in Holt to speak with Jarl Arfast.

This is awesome. I particularly like the landscaping at the bottom - the color choices, the color blocking, the variation in height and the variation between smooth and studded. Also the daub part of the wattle and daub. Also, had you posted the ox-mill before (sorry, I've been out of it due to judging)? That's really nice as well.

Oh, I hadn't noticed all of the tutorials on your site. I'll have to update the how-to page with links.

Thanks Bruce! Looks like I forgot to post the Ox Mill here, will have to do that.

It would be an honor to have our tutorials added to the how-to page! We try to keep making new ones pretty regularly, usually at least 2 a month. Especially now that we have a guest tutorial every month.
