Life in Nordheim

Postby LittleJohn » Wed Aug 10, 2016 3:21 pm

The completed collab that John and I built for Brickfair VA 2016 where it won Best Castle/Knights. The base is 130×98 studs making it our largest build ever, and it weighs a whopping 87 pounds! Which is 56 pounds more than our next largest build, which was our big collab build last year, Katoren. Every building has a full interior and all the doors actually open. We tried to include tons of little details, and there are some interesting easter eggs to look for: sig figs, thieves, snowball fights, goats, dragons, fishermen, and custom weapons.

Nordheim is a bustling city in Mitgardia. Its harbor and Dwarven mine make it a center of commerce, while its strong walls offer protection from the Northern wilderness.

Lots more pictures on our website:
We hope you enjoy this layout, C&C much appreciated :)

Wow! Gorgeous overall design and lots of fun details PLUS sophisticated building techniques. I would imagine this took sooooooo many hours of planning and experimenting. Only in my dreams would I come up with all this in one display. :cry: A tip of the hat to you.
