This year I have finally completed my Map of Middle Earth. AS you can see here here, I started the project about 2 years ago. At that time I had hoped to complete the map within a year, but it took me an extra year to get it done.
Out in the fields, two guards stand watch over the local storage tower. A small Castle build I made during the summer of 2022. More pictures on Flickr and Instagram.
In a port city of Castonien the “swamp people” have carved out their own section. Creating a place for them to sell their wares to the locals and any traveler looking for something a bit more exotic.
My work of the Middle earth map is going very slowly forward. It has basically stood still for a while when other projects have been taken up my time.
Last year I finally got to do something with all my stone age minifigs. I used them in my entry into last year’s “AFOL vs AFOL” competition, an yearly elimination tournament competition held by the RLUG Swebrick.
The Necromancer and his army has broken through the city’s defenses. In a last desperate attempt to stop him, the king has rallied his men for one final confrontation.
Early this year, the LEGO community I’m a member of was approached by Minivärlden. They asked if we were interested in displaying LEGO models at their premises during the summer.
This year I’m having an early summer vacation and it has been quite busy. So I haven’t been able to sit down and write for the blog as I wanted to do (as usual).
In the later part of 2020, a new LEGO competition was announced on the Swebrick forums. It was a marathon competition, where one could enter one build for each day between December 1st and December 24th.
This year I have decided that my next big LEGO project will be to build a Middle Earth map. A map of the world from the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit books/movie.
