Does anyone struggle with MOCs?

August 17, 2014 by

Interesting discussion going on Eurobricks about how to let the creativity flow and start building MOCs.
I struggle myself sometimes to translate into bricks the ideas I have. Most of the times, I’ll use pictures of real buildings (usually historical monuments) as inspiration for my constructions.
How about you?

Here’s the link of the thread: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=99045#entry1971902

To War!

James presented this wonderful ship representing the arrival of King Richard at Acre during the Third Crusade.
I really like how James built the wooden hull of the ship! Well done and another great historical entry on the blog :)

To War!

Here’s the historical context given by James on Flickr.

1191AD, June 8, King Richard lands at Acre during the Third Crusade

The Third Crusade had begun after Saladin had conquered a great part of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The Crusaders afterwards controlled only Tyre, Tripoli, and Antioch. A new Crusade is called by Pope Gregory VIII in October of 1187AD.

Richard had become King of England on 6th July 1198AD and began preparations to join the third Crusade. On his way to the Holy Land he fights in Sicily and Cyprus, gaining control of Cyprus an important Island for the Crusaders.

On arriving at Acre, he arranges a meeting with Saladin, and an armistice of three days is agreed so the meeting can take place. However, both Richard and Philip II of France fall ill. There is no meeting.

Afterwards Richard and his forces help capture Acre, despite his serious illness. Although sick from scurvy and being carried on a stretcher, he fights, picking off guards on the walls of Acre with his crossbow.
