  1. I hate it when a group has two of my most favorite collectible minifigures ever... The forestman barely edged out the bagpiper for me, though I am glad to see the popularity of the bagpiper (being one myself).
  2. I thought this was the case. I was able to purchase 12 of these visors for $1.50 on BL about 4 years ago, so I use them pretty freely (with black helmets, as the pearl dark gray helmets were in the range of $3-$4 at the time, and have increased in price since then). I actually like the helmet you used for Stian quite a bit! I am looking forward to what people have in store for Category C!
  3. Nice work on the sigfigs, Legofin! I might note that Stian is not exactly accurate, but pretty close. In the inn picture, the hairpiece from the musician playing the bohdran is the accurate one. Stian looks funny to me with the longer hair. In armor, the helmet should be black with a pearl dark gray visor, but the current one is not bad. Stian also uses a shortsword rather than the longsword shown. Pearl dark gray is a great color choice, though my sigfig picture has the black shortsword in smooth shiny ABS from the classic armor shop set 6041. Not everyone has one of those... Also note that Stian is left-handed, so the sword should be held in the left hand or sheathed on his right side. Just minor adjustments, but still glad to see the inclusion of Stian nonetheless!
  4. Welcome to Eurobricks, Sacha! You have some great photography skills, and I love your CMF baby shots! I am looking forward to your contributions to the community!
  5. @Itaria No Shintaku I do not know of a way to do so, but it would be nice to have the ability to give a half-vote to our second choice. This would help prevent ties.
  6. My vote is for the tribal woman, not just because of the papoose, but also for the excellent arm and leg printing. I just really like the entire design, and the papoose also adds to it! It was hard for me to not choose the elf, though, as that is also one of my most favorite CMF's of all time. (If I went by how many I own, the elf would have won, as I have about 12 elves and only 1 complete tribal woman with additional heads, torsos, and legs from BL)
  7. Very nice house, jaapxaap! The different angles for the dark blue tiled roof are really amazing! I love the color scheme used to contrast the fire with blue landscape and architecture. All the wood details in the walls, windows, and doors give some nice character to the construction! That phoenix is phenomenal!
  8. @rener For connections similar to that, I have used a bar or cross-axle as a push stick through the hole and against the stud. As long as you can get enough grip on the link beam, they should come apart with minimal damage.
  9. Stian Vitr may also be involved for the Alliance, against the Spire! CMF Highland Battler torso with green arms and white hands, white hips with black legs, Babloo's head from the Adventurers theme, black shoulder pauldron, and either black short tousled hair or a pearl dark gray pointed visor on a standard black helmet with a white small plume. Stian is trained in the use of shortsword and poleaxe (custom design) as well as in riding his horse, Solvi, for speed and for battle.
  10. Welcome to Eurobricks, Alberic! Those are some nice layouts you have built! I am looking forward to future builds and your contributions to the community here!
  11. @Didumos69 I see how it is possible and can be done legally, as you can use the double-length portion of the black pins (without the collar) to slide the pins out during pre-assembly and lock them in once all pieces are assembled. Removal of the pins is entirely a different story, as you would need to grip the revealed shaft-portion of the black pins to slide the pins back out incrementally. The "little brother" one does require the use of another cross-axle to push the internal cross-axles out for removal. As a mechanical engineer, I find these connections quite fun to decipher, though I do not build much in the Technic realm. If I had the time and funding available, I probably would expand beyond just LEGO System.
  12. You are not the only one that makes silly mistakes! I just knew that most pin connections that do not stress the parts should be able to be removed without stressing the parts.
  13. @Didumos69 Could you just remove them in pairs by pulling two opposite the other two? There are still two in-line pin connections joining them together if considered as pairs. On each pair, one hole will be removed from a pin while one pin will be removed from a hole.
  14. @Mesabi That is this piece from the Insectoids theme from the mid 90's. It is a genuine LEGO piece.
  15. Interesting sculpture, Gozer! The columns look very Greek! I like the appearance of Atlas, with a simple shaping achieved with some more complex connections. Good work on the world, though I think the corners could be closed in a bit more to better achieve a spherical shape. I have never built a LEGO sphere, though, so I do not know how easy this would be at this scale. It might look better without the supports for the world or Atlas, but I imagine that it would be difficult to eliminate those.
