My build for Round 4 of The Tourney at MOCpages. Halhi141, Infernum, and Brick all gave me helpful suggestions for this build. Credit for the tree design goes to Brother Steven, and the bird design was inspired by Eklund. This is my second largest build ever at 64x48 (plus the border), and weighing over 21 pounds. It was built over a period of 8 days. There's a full interior, and the castle doors work. Be sure to check out all the details here: brickbuilt.org/2015/Darraor-Castle.php
Dissolution of a Monastery
1536 AD to 1541 AD, all over England, Wales and Ireland. Henry VIII disbands the monasteries, friaries and nunneries in England, maybe just to take their money...

Hello! I'm happy to share my latest creation, the Abbey of St. Delyn. Not based on anything in particular but I did look at some ancient Romanian and Hungarian churches for inspiration. Nothing particularly new for me - more rocks, more round towers and more dark red/dark orange trees - but it came out looking just as I wanted it to. Perhaps my best-looking MOC yet. Easily the most challenging part was the round roofs, and I'm still not especially happy with the lower one. I debuted this…
Two relatively small buildings for the new LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston, designed by Yours Truly. The colors were very fun to work with- the colored lights rotate through a cycle of colors!
Bells echo throughout the river valley. It isn't a deep condemning melody, but one that makes beautiful days yet more peaceful. It welcomes weary travelers to the abbey with open doors, warm hearths, and soft beds. If ever traveling in Avalonia, be sure to take the Abbey road. This is our twenty-first entry for our Iron Builder. against Tyler Clites and Nannan Zhang. It uses the seed part as: Stone windows, bell tower arches, trees, stones, and shield accents.

Bag End at Bricking Bavaria
The main MOC I brought to the convention was my Bag End MOC. I did my best to pack it in the suitcase, but the airport people clearly don't know what "Handle with care" means.

I also brought a few smaller MOCs: my Helm's Deep and Rogue One vignettes and one of the remaining houses from the big Bree layout.
