Big time. My 2 vigs are both 2 studs high right now! But, our first and biggest quarry shipment just came in. Some fool of a court astronomer forgot to schedule for my son's birthday next weekend though!
Oof, that's a bad mistake on your astronomer's part - i guess he is seeing stars now, right?
Glad to hear you are on your way with your builds though, can't wait to see what you come up with!

Your first scene was incredible. Gutted for you, gabe
, you have put so much into it. Can you post it as a free build?
Yeah, i am pretty gutted too, truth be told... i was hoping to look back later on my time in Historica and be able to say i competed in every challenge.
Still, i have to put it all into perspective - the main reason that i couldn't complete in time was a dream work opportunity i had to take last week, which was awesome and quite financially rewarding too.
It just left me with minimal time for things like sleeping etc, which bumped building right down on my list of priorities.
I'm tossing up what to do with what i've got so far - i have enough now for two completed free builds (including the council chamber), but they do kinda tie into two larger story arcs which i am still exploring, sooo... idk.
I might wait until i'm back and then decide what to do with them.

Oh no! One of our very top builders is out of the challenge! Perhaps his expedition was waylaid somewhere in the Rakath Mountains by a band of sneaky Drow! This is a huge blow to Kaliphlin.
I'm on vacation next week, and currently have the ideas and story ready, but nothing built beyond a few small experiments. I guess I'll have to double down the last week and really work on it. It won't be my best effort, but I'll try hard to get something done.
Yeah, i seem to recall that one of those "sneaky drow" was called something odd like "the MocAthalon"...
I did rather overestimate how much i could build last month. Oh well! I'm very much looking forward to seeing your entry Gex/NM, best of luck with the build!

Good to see some WIPs from Kaliphlin! I hope everyone who has discussed entries here can enter something - it would be great to see a good turnout for Kaliphlin. I am making some progress on my entry and hope to enter at least something! Some great entries so far from other guilds and our first entry from Axel
. I'm hoping to comment on the individual threads over the weekend.
Sorry to hear you can't enter gabe
, these builds do take it out of you. However, it does give us mortals a chance to win something!
Yay, looking forward to seeing your entry Wahil/Basiliscus! Yes, the back-to-back builds sure do take thier toll - 3 weeks of not touching a brick though ought to recharge my batteries.

Gabe, have a great vacation! We'll try to hold the reputation that you have earned by winning each of the first 2 challenges. That is truly a mighty blow to Kaliphlin to miss out on your entry. I am also running way behind on my builds. I will definitely enter, but it will not be to the scale that I had originally hoped for.
Thanks, i'm certainly looking forward to hitting the beach and unwinding.
Best of luck with your build, i'm looking forward to seeing it!

Noooooo!! I have a feeling right after challenge 3 I will be doing nothing but brickworld stuff. When challenge 4 is announced I might have to be out of that one. Did you build a guardian at all?
I have built most of my "static" gaurdian, but haven't got around to the "awakened" gaurdian yet... i still want to finish it though 'cause i do like the idea behind it.
Another for the to be finished pile for when i get back! Good luck with all the Brickworld stuff btw - is it Historica related or something else?

Nocturnus' spies are always working in the background to secretly increase the chances of our dark guild. But I'm personally hunting down the spy responsible for this mess and he'll be getting the lava treatment!
Your teaser was increadible. I hope you'll finish the quest anyway. Perhaps there is some room for lego in your suitcase? :P
Ahaha, alas no; no room in the luggage and my significant other would kill me if i tried!
I might take a few "passengers" along for the ride, that'll be the extent of it i think...
