Thanks for noticing, Bruce! I've been trying to find time to post about the Fall For Fairfax display, but I've had my hands very full with child care.
The display was a collaborative effort between myself, Magnus Lauglo, Derek Schin, and Emily Brownlow (Recluce) and her partner, Roo. The castle walls were from Magnus' modular castle
, I supplied the terrain (based on BreadMan's Baseplate Plus Brick idea
), and we all contributed structures.
Building on the raised baseplates allowed me to sink the paths below ground level
, which I think makes for a much nicer look than paths built up on top of flat baseplates. I definitely recommend Baseplate Plus Brick for anyone's next display. I built the goats by stealing from Jens' and Jojo's goat designs
, and the trees came from a similar idea using upside-down bush pieces
(can't remember who that was).
I really had a great time, and I'd like to thank WAMALUG, all the contributors to the castle display, and especially Magnus for coordinating the whole thing. Special thanks to BreadMan, whose Baseplate Plus Brick system was the seed that grew into a pretty snappy display.
