Playing around with the Medieval Market Village

Postby Stormy Arthur » Wed Mar 21, 2012 3:44 am

Gah I’m having massive camera problems! Sorry it’s a bit out of focus.

Just playing around with my new Market Village (or my 2 new market villages). The blacksmith shop is pretty much built following directions, as are the trees. The wagon however is my own design. It will be tweaked a bit, widened and another two “oxen” will be added to trail a cannon I’m assembling.

I'll be building the Inn over the weekend, and then using the extra parts from the second MMV I'll be building a variant of the inn and a variant of the blacksmith/stables.

Hmm... that's strange... all of your MMV figs seem to be missing! ;)

This could be interesting. I found/find the trees in the MMV the most infuriating builds as the slightest touch makes them fall apart! Hope you can improve on that design!

I agree. The trees fell apart if you looked at them funny. I'll definitely be following your progress on this :)

I have yet to see or design a sturdy tree. There is always a weak spot, even if it's just the leaves. I hope you have better luck!

Have yet to have any luck with the trees...

I also am kinda disappointed in the Inn, too many gaps! and why is there no door at the top of the stairs?

I had wondered the same thing. The set looks good, but if you get to close it kinda ruins it.
