This is our family build of a Medieval Village. The idea was to make it a real looking as possible but to leave the back walls open for play purposes.
About this creation
The scene opens with the King's army marching off to battle a rising evil in the East.
The army is made up of knights, archers, and foot soldiers from all eras of LEGO castle sets. Many of the villagers stop their daily routine to see the procession.
The army first slogs past the run down buildings at the west end of the village. The market is also located in this area.
Then they pass the center of town, which features the "Whatsa Ale'in Yah" Inn and Tavern.
Finally they pass the merchant's homes in the east end of the village.
Beware of barking guard dogs. They can cause horses to boot their owners in the behind!
Also in this scene a foot soldier stops at the armament vender and considers a new broadsword. The merchant's wife and daughter have just purchased sausage for dinner.
Look closely at the veggie stand. While the woman is attempting to sell a maiden a carrot, a rat is busy eating his fill.
These two houses were a challenge. The gray house with the roof that needs repair was made only from bricks from LEGO Land Knights Castle 6073 from 1984.
The Viceroy's house on the hill was made only from bricks in LEGO Sytem Black Knights Castle 6086 from 1992.
Come inside the "Whatsa Ale'in Yah" Inn and Tavern. You will notice that the prince and princess from the LEGO Castle Jousting Tournament set 6083 from 1979 are having their favorite ale at the table. The house jester has had a little to much meat and grog and is trying to dance it off. Gandalf the Gray and Froto have stopped in for a bite to eat and a place to rest their stressed out weary heads for the night. They need to find the Inn keeper (She is standing in the doorway flirting with the passing troops).
"I'm only half way home to Roma from Britania and I thought this was a peaceful place to rest my aching body. I want my money back!"
Nice! A nice scene with plenty of room for play. The old sets bring back memories, i remember having a few of those as a kid. Also, nice work on the yellow house with the old timber-supported walls :-)
