Viking hall with watchtower

Postby RebelRock » Thu Nov 22, 2007 9:56 pm

I've recently acquired a few Vikings sets and was inspired to build in that theme. Some of the architecture is not authentic viking style but hey, just like the goblins, it looks good. :P I also wanted to use those blue bricks for something before I disassemble all 4000 of them.

Awesome work Rocco! I like the snow effect you have here. I hope there is interior shots of the bigger building as it looks very roomy. Also, it looks like there could be a lower level to the building since it's raised up. The orcs in the boat make me want them more and more, they look so cool. For some reason, it looks like the orcs are coming to share Thanksgiving dinner with the vikings :lol: . The only thing missing is your sig fig. That would be hilarious! :lol:

This is excellent. You have put together many great building techniques. Are the pieces on the straw hut just set on top of each other? If not how did you manage that? This is a very detail rich Moc, I would like to see more close up photos os the hall itself.

Wow. This is truly an impressive MOC, Rocko! The roof on the smaller building is insanely awesome, the details on the big building and the tower are great, and the landscaping is very good.

I could say much more, but those are the main things I noticed. Great job!

Welp, that's it.

I quit.

Actually I don't, but basically this is ama-za-zing!!!
Sometimes there are MOCs that just make you go
"WOW I wish I could just get my MOCs to looks like THAT!" and this is definately one of those. Super job here Rocko, the water looks great, and the snow is a very nice touch.

I think the best part of the whole MOC, however, is the roof on the small building. It's flat-out brilliant!

Keep on rockin' rocko!

Some of your best work.

At first I thought you were exaggerating about those 4,000 blue bricks... Of course, on closer inspection I realized that you built the entire model on a base of blue! Awesome stuff. The detailing here is fantastic, and while it may not be completely authentic, I don't really think it matters. It certainly fits well with the Viking theme, and it looks great. Heck, how many castles do we see that actually look authentic?

Probably the best MOC I've seen in the past six or so months.

I've had most of those blue bricks assembled since that water tower I did. I figured I should put it to use once more before busting it up.

Fantastic! All that shiny blue! Man I need to buy some new blue bricks. This is has some great action, but I especially like the facade of the main structure with the support beams & the tiles roof on the smaller structure, in fact that smaller roof rocks, Rock. Your use of colour is great too.

A lovely design. I especially like how you created the roof on the main building - very clever. Lee.

Simply amazing! You have incorporated many cool techniques into a relatively small area. The SNOT roof and faces of the hall are outstanding. The roof of the small building is wonderful. And top it all off with the snow effect, wow. This is going to be very difficult to beat.

BTW, you're PM'ed
