Nice addition to the Winter Village with modifications
on December 22, 2015
I bought this set to expand my Lego Winter Village. It's a good fit looks wise, with the same European village charm and details that are similar to many of the Village sets (I'm thinking of the Cottage, Post Office and Santa's Workshop sets in particular). This is a BIG set, so good value for the $$, with two moderately sized buildings, eight minifigs (including two women in skirts and one child), a horse, two cows, three brickbuilt birds and an enormous roast turkey which I think is a lot of fun).
It took me several hours (over a couple of days) to build the set, and then I modified it a little bit to add it to the Winter Village. I added lights instead of the torches and wreaths instead of the black decor pieces on the tan building, a string of lights on the blue building and white snowballs on the tree. Also changed out the signs and made the market stall into a "get your picture taken with Santa" booth. Trying to figure out how to get snow onto the building roofs, I may just swap out the black roof tiles for white. Since the minifigs are in medieval dress, I made some them the shop owners in the Market stalls.
Overall a nice addition to any collection. Good value for the money, high level of detail on the buildings, interesting accessories, nice selection of minifigures and animals.
