The centaur mould introduced in last year’s Harry Potter sets has been put to great use in the latest batch of blind-bagged characters, offering up a more traditional interpretation of a centaur than that of the Wizarding World. That means it lends itself well to a nonspecific vignette – the kind that lets this incredible minifigure take centre stage.

Sometimes you just want the minifigure to be the star of the show, and that’s certainly true of the brilliant Centaur Warrior. When that is the case, though, how do you go about building an environment for it?
The trick is to come up with something that accentuates and emphasises the character without pulling focus, which is exactly what we’ve aimed for in this vignette. Subtle touches like the textured landscape and base keep things interesting, while the trees use a simple technique to bring out a sense of the surroundings without overpowering the minifigure.
- I'm long-time LEGO fan who fully emerged from my ‘dark age’ in 2014, after three children and a lot of LEGO building reignited my interest. My first love is Classic Space – they're the first sets I owned – and this passion is reflected in my creations as a recurring theme.
