Medieval Farmland
The surrounding farmland.
About this creation
Just a small addition to my Medieval Market town...
This WAY to big to use posterboard while photographing! I built the surrounding Farmland, which also completes the river. Don't worry, I'm planning on expanding it downwards more, to create a forest and finish the path...
Now for some history of the area!

The farmland surrounding Harnsford has been tended to by peasants for hundreds of years. When in the year of 1030 (First age), the population of Harnsford grew to large to fit inside the walls, the poorer peasants started to build outside. This area stretches on for many miles around the town. The southern border of the Farmland is the great forest. The northern border is a great range of mountains. The farms and hovels also serves to slow enemy forces who are attacking, for these homes will be the first destroyed in case of assault. The path stretches on south, deep into the great forest, where bandits lay...












A top view. I'm happy on how the river flows smoothly.









Instead of just adding the farmsland, I also added some stuff to the original creation. For example, I thought that the wall ended to abruptly, and so I decided to make it look like some peasants are still building it.










The crossroads. There are some soldiers escorting a Troll for punishment! Well, there are lots of those in the woods...










The first building. I like the Tudor styling done here, but I don't like the roof. I ran out of roof slates though...
It still looks good for such an unorthodox roof method!
There originally was planned a large Castle here, but I destroyed it for two reasons:
a) It looked really ugly and ramshackle because I didn't have enough pieces to make it.
b) Then the whole MOC would look too crowded. Now the wall is the center of attention, and the outside looks really peaceful.










The inside of the second building. As you can see, this is a weapons shop, and the storeowner bought his wife the most expensive dress in the market! That's about a month's wage for him!









Some firewood by the first hut.









A travelling merchant. I'm really proud of all of the bags on his horse.









Another view of the wall construction.













Another view of the Tudor hut.











Another view of the MOC.




I am planning on making another section, or two, or three, or four, or...
Anyways, they will stretch down, so that there is more of the forest and path. When I'm done with this, it will be huge! (of course, these sections will come once I get more green bricks...)

Great job, I can't wait to see it finished. Sure I'll judge. (though I'm not sure how a MOC-off works) But I'm gonna delete your off-topic comment on my Duel in Drawing. ;)

Awesome! That's so cool! I wish I had enough bricks to make that. Really looking forward to seeing more sections! By the way, I've started expanding my Market Village set, kinda like how you've done your's. I think I might include it in the Epilogue of Season 1 of my Comic!
