Ulm Minster
29 VI 15

Ulm Minster is the tallest church in the world, begun in Ulm Germany in 1377 but completed only 125 years ago. As part of the anniversary celebration, two Legoland model designers, Vera Feldmann and Anastasia Trautwein, built a 2.3 meter tall LEGO rendition. It was originally displayed at Legoland Germany, but is now installed in the church itself for the rest of 2015. Check this out and then discuss it in our forum.

Byzantium Contest winners
27 VI 15

A couple of weeks ago (sorry for the delayed front-page announcement) Maedhros announced the results of the Byzantium Contest. The honor goes to Mark of Falworth for his Battle of Nineveh 627-AD. Maedhros notes "the fact that we got a glimpse of an actual historical battle and its main players here and the build was excellently executed, with an inspiring and dynamic posing of figs which makes me long for the old Battle Contest that Josh used to host. The choice of figs and accessories was also well done, highlighting the Roman continuity of the Byzantine Empire." You can see the runners up and congratulate Mark on his win in our forum.

Brick Time Stories
