In the hills on the western side of the port city of Berigora is situated the main barracks and millitary academy of the Peregrinian forces. From this vantage point, the army has good access to both the city and to the causeway road, should an attack come from that direction.

The barracks partly uses the natural defences of the landscape for fortification, as well as an outer wall and high gaurdtowers at each corner.

Posted Image

Today the barracks are a hive of activity. Waisur Iarel, the runner-up of the Mpya Stedor archery tournament, is rolling out his "Evergold archery system" bows to the Peregrinian archers. This is thier first look at the new bows and they can't wait to get to try them out!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Arianna Thunderbow*, a former Nocturnian who sought refuge in Kaliphlin after the archery tournament, was encouraged by Waisur to settle in Peregrinus and join their forces. On her arrival she met and fell deeply in love with Phrixelle, the centaur warrioress who defeated Yavonnel in the Drow gladiator games - the two are now inseperable.

Arianna has her reservations about the new bows, not wanting to give up her beloved longbow. But it's hard to argue with the superior range and accuracy of the Evergold system!

(*Credit for the creation of Arianna Thunderbow goes to the incomperable Angeli!)

To combat the threat of earth elementals, Lord Sansael has ordered the formation of new sapper units. These brave men will use the tunnel networks of the Rakath to seek out forming elementals and destroy them before they have a chance to grow too large and destructive. They are hoping that Professor Mia can come up with a targeting system that can tell them where the greatest concentrations of elemental magic might be - this would make thier job a lot easier!

Posted Image

Spot the new recruit!  :wink:

Posted Image

Here is only one of the many buildings within the barracks complex. On the ground floor are sleeping quarters that are accessed through the tower gaurdroom. The smaller building is an alternitive access route to the top floor - this room also doubles as a small storage space.

Posted Image

Ground floor of the tower gaurdroom.

Posted Image

The top floor contains a small lecture theatre and hallway where one can look over the courtyard. There is also a balcony above the small storeroom and stairway on the left.

Posted Image

A window into the lecture theatre. Here Professor Mia is holding forth on her recent research into "Earth elementals and methods of defence against them."

Posted Image

Posted Image

The gaurdtower has multiple levels within it for observation - a small walkway at the level of the gold windows, a platform just below the roof and then the rooftop itself.

Another excellent piece of architecture and defense within the borders of Kaliphlin.

I really like the window details, the rock formation, the sappers, and the school. Great ideas there. This is an excellent build with all the right visibility built in.

Are you planning on building the rest of the academy?

Thanks captn BB! :classic: I do have some more pics i need to take, so i might add some more in the next day or so. Is there anything in particular you'd like a better look at?

Btw, that is indeed the Pharoah's Quest raised baseplate, well spotted. I love that baseplate, it's so useful!

Thanks for the kind words fellow guildie! No, i am not planning on building the rest of the barracks/academy complex, unless... maybe in microscale?  :look: I do need to practice my microscale after all...

Haha, thanks Axis! Don't worry, you are certainly in the right guild. :wink: Yep, it's a drill - i'm not so good at building mechanical whizzbangs, but it kinda looks ok i think if you don't look too critically at it!  :laugh: I'm planning on taking some more pics of my sapper unit soon, so i should get a better pic of it.

Your builds are always inspiring  :thumbup:  I like that you did the interior of the buildings, and using the bley bracket piece uncovered works surprisingly well for wall decoration. The skeleton legs in the second story windows are a great parts usage too, the curved staircase is also a nice touch.

Very nice.

I like mostly everything that you've done here.

I like the coloration and the texture on the building.  Nice details with the windows and I appreciate that you always put energy into making an interior.  Looks like your stairs could use a little detailing though, but that is a tiny nitpick.  

Great work man!

(dG... I have a few falcons who might make it into a future build.  They are a cool torso to be sure!)

Thanks DeGothia! Yeah, i'm not sure if anyone else uses the falcons as thier home force? I think they cropped up in someone else's challenge 3 moc as a possessed demon army, but i can't remember who that was. :look: Anyway, they've always been my favourite faction, and they do seem to fit into Kaliphlin quite well.

I'm glad you like the cypress, i tried a few different things before i came up with that. :classic: I really didn't want to go with the usual Avalonian looking trees as it wouldn't have suited the climate. Basically it's 3 concentric rings of woven foliage pieces stacked on top of one another, resting on a slightly flared tree trunk. (the green small foliage peices at the top are attched to the trunk also) I'm pretty happy with it, though i'll probably experiment with the form a bit more.

Cheers Zcerb for your kind words!  :classic: Are you talking about the curved outside stair or the short flight leading the small stariwell? Both are a little underdone i agree, although i did try to vary the ground on the curved stairs and it looked too much, so i pared it back again.

I'll look forward to seeing some falcons in your mocs!  :wink:

Thas is absolutely stunning! :sweet:

It took me a while to see all the great things in this moc! Some notable things: The angled rockwork and staircase, the amazing color choice and offcourse all the modular parts. I try to make an interior most of the time, so when it's done by someone else it has my attention even more! :thumbup: And very interesting minifigs, looking forward seeing more Kaliphlin mocs like this.
