Tomarlego 2009

Postby Bruce N H » Wed Jun 17, 2009 5:15 pm

Hey all,

'Tis the season for LEGO fests. Last weekend our Portuguese colleagues gathered for Tomarlego 2009. I see that Tania and Luis were there (or at least some of their MOCs were) - any other CCers? Could you let us know more about what happened?

Here are some galleries. Please link other galleries in this thread.

Lots of great stuff, as usual. I'm loving the forest and then especially the river here.

Hi Bruce, thanks for posting!

This was really a big community Castle layout project, 10 members where involved in creating this overall scene and had several zones, including a battlefield, a medieval town, farmland, rivers, forests, and a lot more! The layout comprised 88 large gray baseplates, 4 deep by 22 long; this means a continuous display of 5' by 28'.
Participants of this display, under Bacvs coordination: alex, eurobot, evildead, lbaixinho, lumiosa, marcosbessa, naneto, tânia and ztp
You can find there my old MOC Heavy Water, it was perfectly integrated, don't you think?
We're already working on the improvement of this layout for the 3th edition of this event!!

Indeed it was! Bem feito! (?) ;)

There's a lot of impressive stuff here, I love the big dioramas. The cathedral in particular stands out to me though, I have a feeling it's been posted here but I can't recall who made it..?

Maedhros,

That's by Romão Santos, forum ID Romas. It was a featured MOC here in May (scroll down at that link.

Tânia,

That's a pretty amazing layout you guys made. How did you guys organize it? Was there some standard or plan agreed on beforehand, or did people just bring things on 48x48 baseplates and you fit them together at the event?

Bacvs was the one that organize all this display (Tânia was the manager of the entire event). We started back on November with a draft/blue-print that showed the main areas of the layout. The town, the battle, the river, the forest and so on. Then the members choosed some "modules/48x48 baseplates" on that draft and begun to build. We had a private board at our forum (like all the others displays*) to arranjed connections points between neighbors and discuss ideas/styles and so on.


*This was very funny, because only members who worked in each display knowed what where being made in those displays. For example, most of our members never knew, until the event, the size of the medieval display or that pirates displays had water :)
