Here we go:

Elven Wagon

(exactly 100 pieces! *skull* )

The elf uses his wagon, pulled by a captive troll, to navigate the haunted, mythical forest. There are monsters and creatures lurking everywhere. And the troll's buddy is watching from behind the tree (look at the tree closely ;-) ) and is ready to attack! Who will win?! YOU decide! Comes with Elf, two trolls, landscape, and wagon! *skull*

This was a bit of a challenge being that I didn't really have the suitible peices but I managed to do it. It took me a couple of ideas using the wizard which gave me inspiration, but I decided to go with this one being it suited the them the best.

The whole idea is that he is taking refudge inside what I tryed to build is the ruins of an old castle that has been eaten up by under growth and nature over the years. I hope you enjoy it! Don't be scared to leave comments!

Awesome contest, heres mine:

Elf Hut Attack

Can the Elf warrior protect the crystals that give the forest life? Or will the trolls burn it down with their torches and functioning catapult? You decide!

p1220753.jpg

Elf Hut Attack comes with two trolls and an elf mini figure, as well as elf forest hut with forest crystals and vine ladder. Also includes troll torches and a real working catapult!

Set include exactly 100 pieces.

p1220754.jpg

I tried to make it as much like a real set as I could, so no illegal techniques, and a realistic minifig number. There needed to be some sort of "playability", so the catapult was included. The 100 piece limit was incredibly hard, it looked a lot better before, even now it contains exactly 100 pieces. Hope you like it, I had a grat time building it :classic:

Hi folks - I've long been skulking around this site, but this contest has really got me going so here it is - my first ever post! I've dusted off the Lego and built my first MOCs in about 5 years, and I was really happy with what I came up with - until I did a brick count :sad: Curse you and your 100 brick limit! :tongue: So after some radical reductions in height, figures, accessories and scenery here's what I'm left with...

Set Name: Elf Queen's Throne

Pieces: 100

The Elvish Queen surveys her Forest Realm from the (recently reduced) heights of her tree-top throne room. You will notice that Elvish architecture is very organic, and forms more of a sculptural structure (integrated with the native flora) than a regular 'building' does. The throne too is natural and simple in style reflecting the Elves' rejection of material wealth in favour of a symbiosis with their surroundings.

P.S. I'll see if I can post a picture of the pre-reduction version somewhere just in case anybody is interested, because it captures my original concept better and includes my versions of some male Elves preparing for battle.

OK - here is the link to the original creation that I had to reduce for the contest:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/j.markham/elves.htm

I'm now going nuts and working on a much bigger version - I'll keep you posted!

Lego Elflands: Naiad Attack

Piece count: 100

There have always been rumours about the Dark Forest among the elven-folk... rumours that something even they cannot fight hidden in the depths of the dark dark trees... Innocently gathering mushrooms, an elf scout stumbles across a sparkling stream. Upon closer examination, the elf spots golden treasures lying seemingly abandoned in the crystal waters. Excitement at this amazing discovery mounting, he reaches out to grab a golden goblet...

pic1-again2.jpg

But as his hand closes around the goblet, the elf recoils in horror as the calm waters of the stream, now frothing violently, rise up and suck him below the suddenly murky waters. He cries in horror as he sees what is hidden below...

pic2-a.jpg

Beneath the waters rises up the evil form of a naiad, or water nymph, to drag the elf to his death. Quickly he releases the goblet and tries to swim to the surface - but it is too late, and he has already seen the skeletal remains of one of his brethren who has met a similar fate. The naiad smiles as she lets loose a water lightning spell to kill the elf. Her golden mermaid's tail glints in the dark waters - it is covered with golden scales made from the treasures of the fools she lures to her doom. Sadly this elf had no valuables to adorn her underwater lair. But the naiad is patient. She knows that all too soon another traveller will stumble across the stream... and she will wield her dark magics again!

pic3-a.jpg

Design Notes:

I wanted a small set with some good parts (gold pieces, new dark brown slopes, dark green leaves and bricks) and simple play value (the rising waters are hinged with a technic pin and when fully raised sit against the trees.) I also wanted the figs not to be soldiers so I chose a civilian elf and as an enemy, a water nymph. The nymph is attached to the underside of the water and is only visible when the plate is raised.

Elven Woods set: Tricksy Elves Can Hide In Nasty Woods.

A little slice of life from the viewpoint of the trolls and why they fear even a pieceful looking stump.

I really liked the thought of a brickbuilt version of the stump that was in the wild west sets for people to hide in. I hope you like it too.
