Great work Parr! Very nice design (and lighting). I don't think the tan 1x4s mix so well with the otherwise brown floor, however; it's a little distracting. Your SNoTed 1x2 tile texturing technique is very nice, though; it was something of an inspiration for a portion of my latest moc. :P

I wish we lived close by - how I'd love to see your work up close and personal! Another excellent presentation! Do you ever get tired of the praise?

What an amazing and well built tavern. Love all the choice tile arrangement and colours. The entrance is very inviting and I think I will go and have a pint or two. CHEERS DUDE..

This is such a great build. This kind of build makes you want to be minifigure. By the way the windows in the front give it a very cozy pub look Alex.-cheers

Quoting Aidan Bryant Reminds me of "A Song of Ice and Fire," series, in which a general does almost exactly this, and is quite close to how I pictured the scene.
Haha, awesome, so that's a fantasy book? Sounds interesting. Glad to have captured the moment for ya :) Cheers Aidan.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great Fact: Shields had all but vanished from military arsenals by the 16th century due to the advent of the arquebus in the late 1400s. Nonetheless, this is still very awesome. Keep up the good work.
Thanx mate, hate to argue with a friend, but you will also find that while fire-arms existed in the 1500's, they were not so common that a trumped up warlord would not still enlist soldiers that carried shields. People wore full plate armor in the 16th century, the Austrians were especially famous for their full plate barded warhorses and suits of armor during a busy era spent fight the barbaric turks. I have been to an Austrian Knights display and seen 16th century shields with shot holes through them and it was very interesting seeing such transitional evidence in front of me like that. Cheers mate...

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Dark and Dingy - just how I like my pubs :). Some excellent and detailed scenes. I especially like the lamp post and walls
Hehe, too right. A pub is menat to be somewhere a bloke can retreat to grumble about how rough the world is, not be judged by his hairstyle and shirt! Bright modern pubs are for yuppies!

Quoting Pedro Resendes I think this is one of your best MOCs ever mate. I know, I'm a castle maniac, but the building and the pics are truly amazing. Congrats!
Hehe, I kind of am known for sci-fi, but am really rather a castle nut myself. I just tend to steer away from these types of builds cos they seem unoriginal to me, everyone else is doing them. But you know what hey say, if you can't beat them, join them! lol...

Haha, cheers mate, yeh yellow seems to be OUT, lol. Will do, I actually already have a follow up in mind. Cheers my good friend...

Quoting Mister Bones Good stuff again Parrinington. Great pics with some nice lighting, love teh entrance to the tavern.
Cheers D', yeh it was the original Moc that front, and I was happy enough with it to build the interior just so that there'd be nice backgrounds visible through the windows! Then I figured I might as well go all the way and make the interior vig worth if you will itself. Bout time I did a nice interior like you guys do!

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Perhaps the best accessory is the floor mat. Cool arse MOC!
Hehe, yeh, it's funny I found that in its original cardboard packaging in a minifig tub of mine and thought, hmm, what's this. As soon as I saw it, I thought, cool, floor rug, hahaha... Cheers...

Quoting El Barto ! Great set here, Chief! That contrast on the outside is perfect, and the shot of the bartender couldn't be more realistic! I'm hoping this will appear at the next port in your series, but if not, maybe I can borrow it? Well done, Dude!
Hehe, borrow away! Mate thanx, I'll likely follow it up with something in a similar vein. Cheers :)

Great job on this one Bro. It does look very realistic and you can just feel the words coming off the page if there were any. The lighting is awesome, because you gave it that misty look coming from the outside. Very well done bud and looking forward to the next installment.

Quoting Tyler Halliwell This is excellent! What are those two window pieces on the front? I ve never seen them before.
G'day Tyler! Yeh, they are from a H.Potter set a while back that had a werewolf in it and snowy hide away or something. I can't remember the set no, and having not seen any of the movies can't really think of any better clues to point towards. Hope that helps? And yeh, they are my fave Lego window piece by far, I've been trying to get more for ages but hard to find. The set came with two... Cheers mate :)

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Fantastic! The MOC is excellent, and I like the little details like the street lamp. I also really like the smoky atmosphere, great work!
The street lamp really was a fun accident, I actually had built that while absent midedly muckign around with tables scraps and thought, hey why not build a neat vig exterior for it, before I knew it I had built the entire interior! Thanks mate..

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Come on, be honest, you've ordered these pictures from Barto! :-P Haha. Really fancy stuff, here. The atmosphere created by the lighting and the outstanding building is incredible. Can almost hear them figuring out a conspiracy or an attack plan! ~Cheers

Quoting Thoy Bradley I agree with Thor. These photos are incredible, the build is incredible - and somewhat modernised in comparison to your usual space builds. Really cool. ~Thoy

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Huh, are you the same Parrington? These photos are awesome, so atmospheric and very well illuminated. Also they are not yellow anymore and you don't have any lansflares in it (lensflares are so 90s, haha). Wonderful MOC, wonderful pictures.
Hehe, I tend to have that effect on people when I do something right, lol. Thanks Thor, yeh in truth your comments on my last Moc really got me thinking. And as I uploaded these, part of me was screaming (Enrich the color, enrich the color... but then I forced myself to just try and see how people respond to these. So far so goo, I was really wonderign what you would think of these, so I guess I'm on the right track ;) Cheers mate...
