December 26th was the day I joined MOCpages one year ago.
About this creation
I built over 50 different MOCs this year!
The main photo is a collage of some of my favorite builds yet. (Please excuse the bad photo quality and editing)
This year I was able to attend my first two LEGO conventions, Bricks Cascade (in February), and BrickCon (In October). Next year, I hope to complete another large Middle-Earth themed project, and focus more on adding detail into smaller builds. Unfortunately, I might not be able to build as much because I am currently quite busy with school work and music. I still plan to upload at least once or twice a month though, and stay active in this community.

Here is a recap of my builds this year:

I started when I joined at the end of 2015... I posted a few builds that I had worked on during that year, including Medieval House and Stable, Medieval Forge, and Medieval Watchtower.







Mini Forest Ambush was my first small vignette. I focused on fig posing and basic landscaping techniques here.



Chemistry Lab was my first posted LDD creation.



Next came Shoretower Castle, which I actually built the summer before but never got around to posting until January. It was built on a single 48x48 baseplate, making it my largest build at the time, and my personal favorite for a while. Also my first to get 20+ likes.



Miner's Hill was a fun quick build. I worked on forest landscaping, and even included a cutout in the back!



In early February, I ordered a ton of trans-clear 1x2 plates. I decided to use some in Waterfall Chase.



Medieval Prison was a fun build, and I got to try out a sand green tudor style upper story, which I think turned out pretty well!



My first microscale creation was Micro Medieval Citadel.



In February, I joined The Lands of Mythron, a fantasy RPG. My intro was titled Leaving Home. It featured some crazy angled rockwork and landscaping, and was extremely fragile.



In late February, I attended Bricks Cascade, my first LEGO convention. It was lots of fun, and I got some great prizes! I suggest checking out the convention here! In 2017, it will be March 9th-12th.

The Dwarves Meet Bard the Bowman was one of the MOCs that I brought to display at Bricks Cascade. It was my largest build at the time. It was also my entry into round one of MELO (Middle Earth Lego Olympics), which was my first contest.



I wonder how many people actually read the full description on these things... If you're reading this, let me know.
Anyway, my next build was my first freebuild for LOM. Check out the full story here.



This was my first UC for LOM, and one of my better builds at the time. I used an angled wall technique for the wall, and added some detail in the back of the build as well.



An Evening Stroll was a quick vignette.



My second contest was the Mocathlon, which is a team contest where you enter as many categories as possible. I was able to produce a few builds for this one:







Soon after the MA, the results for round one of MELO were announced. I barely moved to round 2, where I faced a formidable opponent, D H. Here was my entry:



Unfortunately, I did not move on from round 2, though I eagerly watched the rest of the contest, in which my round 2 opponent ended in 3rd place!

Here are a couple more small MOCs that I built afterwards:





Forest Watchtower was a build in which I used a round tower technique, and a fun 10-sided roof.



Some more small builds:





























The Western Gate remains one of my favorite smaller builds of all time. I really liked adding all the trees and shrubs around the wall, and overall I think it came together very nicely!



Norhall Keep was a build that I worked on slowly over the summer, and finally posted in September. Spanning two 48x48 baseplates, it was my largest and best build at the time. Meanwhile, I had been working on an even bigger project, and my main build of 2016.



I kept Norhall together through BrickCon, where I displayed it along with Helm's Deep. Helm's Deep is currently my largest build (Ten 48x48 baseplates, over 6 feet long), and also my most liked on both Mocpages and Flickr.



Helm's Deep was my main project over the end of summer, starting in late July, and ending in late September.

At BrickCon, I did a live collaboration with Justin Li. We built a snowy cottage, which you can check out here.



Finally, I ended the year with some fun entries into the Collosal Castle Contest:







Overall, it's been an amazing first year, where I've met so many new people, and shared tons of new LEGO creations with this great community! I can't wait until next year!


Phew, that was a lot of writing! Took me a couple hours to finally upload this... Thanks for looking, and happy early New Year!

I read through it all (I don't know if I am alone in this custom). Great MOCs, though I must say I liked Norhall Keep better than Helm's Deep (which needed a little work on the rockwork). Overall, though, really good building. It is easy to see your progress over time as well! To a great second year!

Fantastic work all around Classic Bricks! You've come a long way in just one year and you should be proud of your accomplishments :) And that Helm's Deep... Yikes. I did indeed read through the whole post. After all, if I'm going to write so much on mine, it's only fair that I should read others' ;) I've only put together 67 builds this year (down from 75 the year before), but the fact that you've made so many stellar builds in just one year is quite astounding. Ha, I've been on here two years and haven't posted a MOCversary yet. Probably should ;) Anyways, keep inspiring. Builders like you keep me going and growing... Well done, God bless, and here's to a fantastic new year! ~Promar~

What a year you've had! I remember the first month of all-lowercase "lego beethoven" as your username. The difference between your first and most recent build is so substantial and I never expected to see such a huge transition. You are one of the many people who inspire me to keep building in the Castle theme. Best wishes for year two! If only I could take a 16-hour flight to actually see your work...
