About this creation
As Derlin approached Crows Nest the smell of rotting bones left over from the last hangings entered his nostrils and warmed him. not difficult, when one considers the blistering temperature found in the midgardian peaks. How they survive up here is a mystery, and how they're going to cope with the warm humid atmosphere of the swamps is equally so...
The knights of the crow are were banished from Mitgardia some one or two decades ago, however simply relocated to one of the uninhabited hills. Brutal as they are anyone who got on their nerves was killed, the stench that warmed the deranged druid Derlin attracted crows, feasting on the carcasses left by the blood-thirsty warriors. A small village has been brought up on the hill, and the nest, as they call it lies dead centre. it is the abode of Graὐf, The current chief. Derlin was greeted to the hill with his wolf being slaughtered by hunters, but he hadn't the time to kill them, he was here on business, recruiting for the black spire...
Well, im gonna be honest, im not exactly interested in this category, but i had the idea and heres the result, bringing me 1 build closer to getting qualified for MB. Also simon, ice cream is more than just smoke and icecream! Inspiration from Derfel Cadarns "dedication" and most of Soccerkids MOCs.

Simply amazing in every way. The angles, the shaping, the layout...it looks fantastic. There are, however, a few nitpicks I hope you don't mind me sharing. First, grill bricks. Those bricks with lines of them almost never look good as dilapidated masonry. They can be used for pillars or as other details, but they're too uniform for this kind of stonework. The second is open stud sockets, like on jumper plates - similar issue. And last (and least), the clip piece in the rockwork looks pretty unnatural. But aside from those three things, this build is pretty much perfect. :P

I honestly can't take my eyes off this. Those details are mind blowing! I love the roof! The walls and rocks are also very well done.

astounding detail. I can't even imagine the level of headache endured, creating such odd-angled shapes and color patterns.

I just love that stuff. I tend to do rather square MOCS but I really admire the shabby, wobbly, shaky rendering that must be very tricky to achieve.

The realism of your builds always astounds me! The textures, colors, and angles are stellar. The snow work is outstanding and the bit of wood exposed underneath the stone is a master's touch. Amazing!

Amazing offset and off-level texturing. It's got Miyazaki-ish charm just everywhere! Amazing forced curvature-work on the gables. 5/5! Cheers!~ =D

Thanks guys! @leda and chris, probabably not next cbs, but the one after i hope to have a collection that enables me to build say 3-5 four wall houses (this is only two walls)

The way you create angles and curves out of Lego is astounding. This has so much life and character, I'd love to see an entire village of your buildings on display.

Well, this is just wonderful. The realism you have captured here is pretty remarkable. The little pieces of vegetation on the ground and the dead tree look great. What I really love is the snow hanging off the roof. Excellent attention to detail.

The snow on the roof is marvelous, the angles and curves are delightful and the textures are rich. The only thing wrong with it is that you only included one photo.

The snow on the roof and the boarded-up corner are excellent! Also love the atypical angles of all the walls, windows, etc. to show wear and age. Amazing techniques and detail!

Amazing. This looks so realistic but still conforms to what we know as "fantasy" - it's the perfect blend between realism and stories, and the techniques used are one of the best ones I've seen! I want this thing on my desk. forever. but as that's not an option, a few more pictures (possibly on flickr) would be grand :D

Incredible! This is a real study in the use of texture and angles. I don't think I have ever seen snow represented in LEGO as well as you have done here -- the clear pieces around the edge of the patches of snow really help to make it convincing. The use of color on the walls of the building and the texture in the stonework and on the roof is just perfect. It doesn't look like there is any detail that you haven't put a lot of thought into.

I can't get over how cold it makes me feel. The snow and ice work is phenomenal. The fact that the snow doesn't cover the entire roof tells me that there is a biting wind. The textures everywhere give it a wonderfully gritty quality. Even the hinge joint in the step riser makes this whole thing tactile and realistic. I love the patch in the roof, it's so subtle but it gives it a "lived in" feel. Amazing job!
