You've really piqued my interest in HMM more and more with each tid bit of the story.  The decals are awesome but I like the paint work the best. Gelu looks to be an exceptionally complex and interesting character I need to find out more about. You've captured his demeanor beautifully with the armor and Ginny hairdo. :tongue: Good job sir.

p.s. oh yeah, I like the paint on the plumes too. Must have taken awhile to get in those nooks and crannies.

I look forward to seeing more from you soon!

Amazing customs as always ThePenguin! Nice decals too commndr_neyo! :thumbup: My favorite among these are the Elves, particularly Gelu - that's the most clever and radical use of Ginny's hairpiece I've seen so far. Impressive work and keep it up!

Thanks, KielDaMan! )  :thumbup:
I'm glad you liked it. Yes, Gelu is the fig that turned out to be really interesting. And quite complicated while making. Since I tried to be as close to the character as possible. Even with his tattoos.

Great figures Pinguin! I love the paintjobs, and Gelu looks awesome!
Will you use the other decals too? And thanks KDM, I'm glad you like them too.

Oh, you just had to give it away that there are other decals, didn't you?  :hmpf_bad:  :laugh:
Thanks for the decals again. Yep, I'll use them, though not now. )

Yes! Awesome 'figs! I LOVE HMM. I've been playing since it came out, and I still do occasionally. Nice work on these, but the crusaders are my favorite-I always liked the "guys in armor" best.

-Santhor

Thank you very much! ) Yep, one of the strongest 4-th level units in the game. ) not to mention awesome looking! Stay tuned for more HMMIII characters! )

By far, this is the most amazing and incredible batch of Heroes 3! One of my all time favourite character was Gelu in Armageddon's Blade, mainly because of its special upgrade abilities. Thanks for sharing!  :wub:

Oh, thank you, WhiteFang! )  :blush:
You're too kind as always! Yep he was a great hero!  :thumbup:
I remember plaing some campaign map. I met him with a small but relatively strong army. He had an army like one centaur, or something l;ike that. He destroyed me with one blow! He had the first turn and an Armageddon's Blade!  :hmpf:  :laugh:

You know how I value your opinion! Yep, this part required much time for painting, still i did enjoy it!
it's a shame that the number of sited, dedicated to HMMIII is declining. Still you can find some around. But the best way to learn about it is to start playing HMMIII: Restoration of Erathia. )

Catherine Ironfist (née Gryphonheart) was the wife of King Roland Ironfist and daughter of King Nicolas Gryphonheart, whom she succeeded as the Queen of Erathia. She restored the Kingdom of Erathia from the brink of collapse after it was invaded by multiple sides following her father's death, and later played an instrumental role in the war for Armageddon's Blade.

Nice job :thumbup:  I especially like the unicorn, good to have an animal between all the minifigures.
The other ones look excellent as well but Queen Ironfist may be a bit too slim for a normal torso. But on a normal torso, I think this is the best one could do.

Thanks, Admiral!  :thumbup:

Yes, the unicorn turned out to be pretty ice, even better than I originally expected. I guess I just got inspired with all the chat around new horse-molds in the History forum.  :classic:
Well, I tried to follow her game look, and in the game she's pretty tal and slim indeed. It's really hard to achieve that on the LEGO fig, still thanks for rating it si high.

Very nice work penguin,just spent about 45 minutes looking trough the whole thing :classic: =)  i love it,specially the creatures,like the naga or the efrit. Also your mages are very good looking,i might try doing some off my own,based on yours :classic:
As for ideas the only HMM i played was 3,not familiar with the rest,but you should definitely use your great painting skills and present us with a dragon. a old lego dragon(not fond of the new ones) painted in gold :cry_happy: or the hidra.Could also try to make golems,and a nightmare(some i´ve been thinking on doing,it would make for a great paint job)
Anyways keep it up,this just got on bookmarks on my browser :tongue:

Well, actually nightmares are not present in HMMIII, but as for golems, that may work. Actually I am goind to try to make all units from castle and tower towns, an it seems I have the ideas how to do them, except for the titan. /  :hmpf_bad:
Still I hope I'll find some way!  :classic:

Well what was that in your first post it looks to me like random nonsense? also before posting it might be nice to introduce yourself in the Hello My Name Is fourm and please check where you post before you do as this topic is over a year old.
Other than that as long as you use english on the fourms you will be ok.
(Its probably best i warn you now before the MODs come around) :wink:

EDIT
I am sorry I do apolagise i just put what you said into google translate and it comes up with this.
I am the organizer of the online league for the WCL Homm3. would like to buy toys for my son Erathia. is it possible?
If you are looking to buy lego please try Ebay,bricklink or the Buy and Sell fourm.buy and sell
This is not the correct place to put a post like this but we should let the MODs handle that.

@ SAG1933 - As a new member, it would be nice from you to introduce yourself in this part of the forum, instead of bumping a 1+ year old topic. :sceptic:

Moreover, as an international community, Eurobricks has English as its language, please try your best to post in English.

Finally, we do encourage our members to share their interests and have feedback for their LEGO 'quests' from each other, but we do not take kindly on members who only join EB looking for bargains. Hoping you'll still want to be an active member in this community, I suggest you to check the Buy, Sell, Trade and Finds section of the forum in answer to your question.


@ The Joker1 - No need to mini-mod other members. Just report a post and be patient. The Staff will handle it asap.

1) i'm sorry for breaking some forum rules. actually it's not a problem for me to write in English. I've posted my previous message in Russian just because question was addressed to ThePenguin and it's mentioned in his profile that he's from Russia.
2) thanks for links, i will check them and most likely will find an answer there
3) i was registered here only because i would like to buy few Penguin's Castle Minifigures (Heroes of Might and Magic III Restoration of Erathia minifigures) for my little son - if this is possible

You need to have 10 posts to be able to see member profiles and PM them. Just have a bit more patience and make worthy posts (not just to rise the post count, else you may get into trouble :wink: ) and you'll be there.
