I give a HUGE THANKS to everyone who supported my Medieval Watermill and got it to the 10,000 vote review! The medieval village has expanded to include this Medieval Windmill which is used to grind or mill different grains/corn into flour. 

This windmill would be ideal as a display piece for adults/teenage collectors or to add to an entire medieval village with other buildings such as cottages, blacksmith shop,watermill, tavern, church, castle, etc. I tried to include many details throughout while limiting the landscape for a more realistic piece count. There are approx. 2,240 pieces (not including the power functions).

It was a fun challenge building this cobblestone walls with a unusual style roof. I used several different build techniques to get the desired look. Although it appears fragile the build is very stable. There is no interior to view as a large support structure takes up that area. As an option there is a power functions battery box geared down to 1/5th normal speed with a medium motor all hidden inside and connected to the windmill. The windmill splits apart to access the base or power functions if desired. 

Includes 2 minifigures with a pig and horse with wagon. I also included several barrels which could be used to transport flour. One of the barrels is filled with broken bamboo pieces. Ideally I would like for LEGO to make a new plant piece similar to the bamboo leaves. This would fit into a small or large barrel. 

I hope you like this project and any feedback is appreciated. If interested please check out my other projects and support if you like here:
