Discworld MOC's

monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,392
I know this is not a hard-core MOC showing sort of forum but there are a few popping up here and there (I know i have loaded up a few over the last year) and it is one of the end results of all the purchasing we all do after all - Anyway i hope no one minds too much.

After a long time planning i finally got around to building some Discworld MOC's and for once they actually turned out exactly as i planned.

There were two steps to this:
1st - The figures. For the most part these are all standard Lego parts mixed and matched to create unique figures. There were a few custom bits needed and I sourced these through firestartoys, namely the orange paint job on the Librarian, Rincewind’s Red hat and Susan’s white hear.

2nd - The locations. I really wanted to keep the builds 'micro' sized, 8x6 max and had this idea that each could stand on its own or be linked modular style to another so as to build out a larger display, which left me working out which were the most iconic location and figure combination I could realistically create.

And so we got:

Granny Weatherwax with Grebo (technically not her cat but hey) in a 'Classic' witches setting

Death and Susan in the black and white bathroom in deaths house

Rincewind and the Luggage on their travels somewhere on the disc

Samual Vims on patrol in Ank-Morpork

Lord Vetinary at his desk

The Librarian in the Unseen University Library

Anyway hope you like them - I do :)

    That's superb, I'm a massive fan of the Discworld books and you've recreated it very well with Lego.

    Did you paint the gorilla?

    Thanks

    @CCC no, the gorilla was painted by a chap called jasbrick ordered through firestartoys. To miss quote Blackadder – I have the artistic talent of a blind hedgehog in a paperback. I am hoping to get him done on a printing machine next year (price dependant) so he can actually be handled and moved about a bit, the paint is nice but makes the figure purely decorative.

    I wondered as I have a similar one that I have "painted" reddish brown. I did it with a lego brick dissolved in acetone, where you paint on many fine coats to give you a good colour match to lego's palette (I think I saw something similar on eurobricks). I'm going to try doing a tan and dark flesh one to make a Dr. Zaius from planet of the apes. I still have to test it properly under play conditions, but it seems to hold up quite well without chipping.
