Non-Castle MOC: Battle of San Juan Hill
Bruce 22 VI 11

Every so often I want to feature a non-castle MOC that has great building techniqes that castle builders can use. One example of this is Brian Williams' (BMW_Indy's) Battle of San Juan Hill. In addition to things like great fig posing, that billowing smoke, and the use of minifig hands as grass, I especially wanted to call attention to his amazing brick-built horse.

Brian is an AFOL from suburban Chicago, where he is a founding member of NILTC. He was a train coordinator at Brickworld this past weekend, where this MOC was also on display. The Battle of San Juan Hill was entered in the LEGO Military Annual Build Competition, where it won the vignette category. All of Brian's MOCs can be found on Flickr.

Doors of Durin
Bruce 12 VI 11

Ennyn Durin aran Moria. Pedo mellon a minno - so reads the inscription on the West Gate of Moria, here reproduced in Modulex by Karyn, aka ktraphagen on most forums. She is a fan of Modulex and created MiniBricks Madness to help educate AFOLs about these bricks. Like, for instance, there are both matte and glossy tiles, which helps give the variation in texture seen in her mosaic.

Karyn hails from Durham, NC, where she is a member of NCLUG. All of her MOCs, both Modulex and otherwise can be found on Flickr and MOCpages.

Village Houses
Bruce 7 VI 11

ZCerberus, an AFOL from St. Paul, Minnesota, is building Fort Brighton, a European port city. It's set in the 17th to 18th century, but his Village Houses would fit very nicely in a medieval layout. He actually found inspiration on his morning jog, as the neighborhood he runs through has many Victorian and half-timbered houses. He also runs past St. Paul's Cathedral, which is part of th inspiration for his WIP Cathedral.

ZCerberus is a member of Classic-Pirates and lurks a bit on the TwinLUG forums. His MOCs can be found on Brickshelf and MOCpages.

Bruce 2 VI 11

Pawel Ostromecki, aka Zgrredek, is an AFOL from Poland and a member of LUGPol. He's also a fan of the work of Terry Pratchett, which led to Binky and his Master. All of Pawel's MOCs can be found on his Flickr and Brickshelf.
