Very true, but I don't think a third of a minifig would sell very well. :-P

Let's say you have a minifig in your entry and he has legs, a torso, a head and a hat. That's three pieces.
Just out of curiosity, why doesn't that count as four pieces?

Heck, I'd buy that!  *skull*

I'm working on my entry now. I've got two projects on the table, but I can enter this one ~ 'specially since it's got a piece limit.  *y*

Also, for inspiration, may I suggest collectobil.com (a playmobil fan site.) There's a nice Magic Forest theme there: (MAGIC: In the second column)

It just gives a little freebie for figs so we can concentrate on making cool MOCs. I count the torso and head together as one piece...

  Sounds COOL! *sweet*  But I don't understand this part^  how can there be no minifig limit if each minifig counts as three pieces? :-/

In the Pirate's Life Contest there is a specific limit of mini-figs that you're able to place on the MOC.
In this competition, you can place 99 giant trolls or 33 minifigs  on one base plate (which wouldn't be very interesting  X-D ).
You can put as many as you want, but there is still a limit to the piece count.

Giant trolls count as 1 piece? If so, why can't we use 100 of them? :-D

Edit (x2) by imperialshadows: Edit by Hinckley: Even in the post you quoted didn't read :-$ , there seems to be a 100th piece already...

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

I haven't entered a contest on Eurobricks yet, but I think I might enter this one. I have a good idea... heheh.  *knight*
Also, does a hat with, say, a small feather in it count as one part or two?

I have now modified my avatar with Lego Castle colours to make it more 'castley' in some way, too.

Hey guys! I've very nearly finished my entry which was a lot of great fun. Are there any other interesting things to happen in Castle month?  Anyhoo, I found some hair which works great for elves if you're interested, it's the Qui-Gon hairpiece, I've used one for my moc and i think it looks great.

Thats alright, hey you are right too, I like that Anakin hairpiece for that use, In fact, it does seem very much like a "medieval" style hair, thanks  *classic*

No, although that would be logical to count them as six, let's keep all regular size figs as 3 pieces and giant trolls as 1.
