Dumnonia 17th Century (Module 3)
The church of St Govan stands on one of the most scenic parts of the Dumnonian coastline, but sinister things have been happening. A gang of pirates has been using lights on the cliff to lore ships onto the rocks in storms, where the pirates can then plunder the wrecks. The bell rings as warning during storms and is a sad lament for the doomed ships and lost souls who fall victim.
This is the best use of BURPs I've seen yet! An incredible build filled with all sorts of interesting details - if you ever try to rebuild it, I think it could be even more spectacular if you hand-built the rockwork instead of using BURPs!
I don't know how I missed this, superb details and great concept for the building. It must have taken many hours to assemble all those round 1x1x1 parts. But you know what? It's a feast to the eyes! Congrats Luke!
Amazing... the amount of detail is simply overwhelming. The entire build looks fantastic, from the shoreline all the way up to the top of the bell tower. 5/5, an amazing build the likes of which is rarely seen.
This is probably one of the best MOTD ever. The detail is stunning, and entire MOC is just spectacular. The rock cliff is superb and the design of the building on top is certainly top-notch. Great job, and congrats on MOTD!
Love the SNIR offset of the building and the fluid (non-straight) fence. The overall detail is very impressive (just the building itself), especially with the entire landscape. Very inspiring work!!! Well done :)

Purely genious. It's made from a very high platfrom too, it must been kinda hard to figure out everything. Even the stained glasses are very well detailed.
I was a big fan of lego in my tender age. I see that now, some adults are still playing with lego and creating very nice things.
Thanks for all of your amazing comments! This was one of those builds that just seemed to flow and come together without any problems, and yes i am a huge Metallica fan and it was named after one of their songs. Thanks
Incredible, stunning! The landscape work is amazing; the design of the church is simply brilliant. I also like the little chef dude in the lower right hand corner of the main photo. He looks like he is holding up the table and reaching for the remote to turn up the volume on the cooking channel.
As gorgeous as it looks, it must have been tedious and painful to stack all them round 1x1's plates. But bravo for the crazy patience and determination to create such an awesome MOC! There's not enough room here to gush at every detail. So I'll leave you with 'brilliant' and 'impressive'!
