Caithness Broch Project
19 VII 16

A broch is a round stone structure built in Scotland about 2000 years ago, perhaps built for defensive purposes, perhaps as more peaceful farm dwellings. Most of these are found in the extreme north of Scotland or along the western coast. The Caithness Broch Project, a group that seeks to preserve archaeological sites and educate the public, have commissioned Brick to the Past to create a LEGO display that will be housed in the Caithness Horizons Museum. If you're anywhere in the area, be sure to check it out, and also discuss it in our forum.

Battle of Hastings
12 VII 16

950 years ago this October, William the Conqueror defeated Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings, reshaping English history for centuries to come. James Pegrum (aka Peggyjdb in our forum) and Jimmy Clinch (aka Thomas Arrowford in our forum), both part of the Bricks to the Past collaboration have made a massive rendition of the battleground, as well as a number of smaller scenes of surrounding events based on the Bayeaux Tapestry. You can see them all on their site or, if you are anywhere near northwest England you should go see them in person along with other great builds at the Bricks in Time exhibition. Whether you see these virtually or in the brick, come discuss them in our forum.

Colossal Castle Contest XIII Master Builder
26 II 16

Every year the Colossal Castle Contest inspires great building from lots of different builders, but there are always a few people who excel all around. The Master Builder award is given to the individual builder who enters at least six different categories and does the best all-around. This year there were several people with extremely impressive sets of entries, people like Aardwolf, Jaapxaap, josdu, KyleKreations, Marcu44, and Soccerkid6, just to name a few, but in the end there can be only one. I'm sure this is no surprise if you've looked at the list of winners and noticed how often one name comes up, but this year's Master Builder is ... drum roll please ... Dubbadgrim. Be sure to check out his truly impressive body of work, including those below, and congratulate him on his win.

Arangr Castle through the year
19 II 16

Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, and Soccerkid6/Isaac will be there with this amazing series of MOCs. He took Arangr Castle and then transformed it through the seasons. Look close to see how small details change through the year. You can see this series along with all of Soccerkid6's MOCs on his website (along with his brothers John and Kevin), BrickBuilt, and on Flickr, and then discuss it in our forum.


Brothers Grimm
17 II 16

Markus Rollbühler built this great MOC, the Brothers Grimm for the Brickstory contest on the Croatian LEGO site Kockice. He depicts two main Grimm stories, but says there are references to four other stories hidden in the MOC. Can you identify them all? You can check this out along with all of Markus' creations on Flickr, and then discuss it in our forum.


Castle Tank
12 II 16

Hey, I found another Nexo Knights MOC. Last fall, Carrier Lost built this Castle Tank inspired by preliminary pictures of the Fortrex set, but with a much better color scheme. Check out a head-to-head comparison and see all of Carrier Lost's creations on Flickr, and then discuss it in our forum.


Nexo Knights Origins
9 II 16

This is the first real Nexo Knights MOC I've seen, and it's awesome. Milan Sekiz didn't really fill in the story for his Nexo Knights Origins, but I think the pictures pretty much tell the story: In the dark past, a wizard sent four brave knights through a magic portal. There they find themselves in a futuristic sci-fi world, and the kingdom they found becomes the realm of the Nexo Knights. You can see this along with all of Milan's MOCs on Flickr (be sure to check them all, great stuff from a variety of themes), and then discuss this in our forum.
