Here is one of my entries into BrickCon 2009 in Seattle! This is a dwarf mine in the form of a big ant farm. Some knights followed a lizard in there too, and there are some Power Miners as well. This model won "Best Castle" at BrickCon 09.
About this creation






This dude is checking out what's going on from behind a secret entrance used for transporting ore. He also runs the crank that lifts the carts up the shaft.











These guys seem to have burrowed into the mine.










A small dragon has eluded the knights and has found it's way into the tunnels.










So the dwarfs allow the knights access via a secret rock trapdoor.










Here's what the scene looks like.










This is part of the mining operation going on.










This guy empties the buckets and moves the carts of ore along the track.











A little blurry, but this guy collects the carts and sends them up the shaft.










Here's a photo of the model at BrickCon in Seattle. Everyone seemed to really like the concept behind it. Photo is courtesy of my good buddies over at The Brothers Brick.











Here's the trophy for winning the Castle category. Isn't that a cool trophy!

Awesome build. I am a Dwarf and I'm digging a hole!

AAAHHHHH finally another Dwarf enthusiast with talent. Daniel Z was the first to capture my interest but this cutaway is definitely quality. I especially like the pattern to tunnels though it seems a bit zigzaggy. Perhaps if you put an elevator shaft in there. However this is a lovely build and I will not detract from it. Well Done!

Seems a bit needlessly convoluted, don't you think? Of course, they're dwarves. Why go to the trouble of sinking a new mine shaft when you can just cobble together a crude elevator? Workplace health and safety? What's that?

I've studied this thing and all I can say is wow! I don't know how you people make stuff like this! I've made my own Dwarves Mine, can you please check it out and comment on it? It's nowhere near your skill level, but it's cool.

heh, it looks like one of those ant farms! Good work, I especially like the rock formations carved from the dwarfs. I love it, but more pictures would be nice to show more detail. Other than that, great work!
