Wow Angeli!  *oh2*

That is impressive in both scale and design. I love all the tran pieces anchored to the arches; it creates a very neat light effect.  :thumbup:
This will be a sight to behold when it's done! Am I correct in assuming this is your biggest city so far?

nope, Menzoberranzan was my biggest castle (

And by the amount of bricks that I have left, I think it will stay the biggest...

But :) I do think that Lith My'athar will be the most complex one, and if I have enough bricks for tall, slim tower, the prettiest one ;)

few new things:

church of l'Loth (realy, I am building it like it is a real one, so much time:)
Posted ImagePosted Image
Posted Image

New keep, entrance and the moving bridge will bee leaning on it
Posted ImagePosted Image

New rooftop
Posted ImagePosted Image

Ambient pictures of the one of the towers
Posted ImagePosted Image

New window (the light felt so beautiful while I was building, I had to take a picture:)
Posted Image

Part of a spider body that will go atop the sacrifite pit
Posted Image

And finally new minifigs :) (pictures are links to larger ones)
(Look at the first one enlarged - fearsome, reminded me of some of the Night Watch (but he would need a normal body) :) and for the other one, I've tried to use new heroica helm, but I can not find a head that would fit really tight. Any ideas?
Posted ImagePosted Image
Yes, yes, it is a flying axe :)
Posted Image

In here I am particularly satisfied with shield :) And this little underdark forest spirit, he is much nicer enlarged :)

Everything you have done here is beyond "mind blowing". Is this a lifetime project that will never end? Sorry, if you already answered that question. I  haven't read any replies.

Building with lego is a lifetime project ;) for everithing else, from what I will build, when and why, I do not have the slightest idea :) And by doing so, i.e. haeving none, I enjoy building even more :)

An interesting update once again, it's becoming more and more apparent that your city will be rather crowded. I haven't heard of the Blood Elves yet, so I wonder what their alignement is supposed to be. I doubt they're all that friendly towards the Drow, but a common enemy sometimes creates interesting yet fragile alliances.

Concerning your previous update of the city itself, I especially like the tree and the pyramide, as their colour scheme will make them real highlights between the black and red buildings. The pyramide itself is a superb building all on its own and could easily double as a recreation of the great egyptian pyramides of old :thumbup:

To tell you the thruth, I invented the Blood elves; while I was looking at that elvish minifig, later called "Blood-elf bladedancer" Ithought "he is so evil battel-hardened looking guy, that he should have his own speaces :)

Anyhow, I've added more the 60 new minifigs here so take a look :)
here are few:

Hi friends :)
Due to the fact that new guilds are forming, I have few new minifigs, but all with guild-colored flags - red and gold

There is a lot of txt going into the story, so check out Valsharess as avatar and new species

They are part of the growing city of Lith My'athar, and here are just few photos, without text:

So the queen of the Drow is only known as Valsharess and her currently favoured male is called Veldrin? I wonder where I've heard that before. Let's just hope that this particular Veldrin doesn't do the same things as his relative whose visit in Ust Natha didn't end well - for the Drow, that is :devil:

But I guess the people of Lith My'athar aren't that easily infiltrated :laugh:

That demon of unkknown kind looks fierce and I agree that the Drow are justified in being happy that he - for now - allied himself with them. The half-dragon really looks like Madae and if I were part of any guild, I certainly wouldn't want to oppose him/her without proper equipment. All in all, those new figures look really great and Lith My'athar certainly isn't lacking in diverse inhabitants.

YES :) Madae (from Icewind Dale 2) was the inspiration for halfdragon ;) bravo :)
Veldrin is from Baldur's Gate 2, the name you get when infiltrating Ust Natha (by the way, the first Drow city that I've made was Ust Natha
Valsharess is the main antagonist from Neverwinter Nights 2 :)

There are other famous names in mocs - Bodhy, Viconia deVir, Drittz and others ;) go trough "Drow" thread :)

Aside from Neverwinter Nights, I've played the classic RPGs situated in the Forgotten Realms (Baldurs Gate-series and Icewind Dale-series) and I agree that these are a great source of material :thumbup:

The Veldrin I hinted at was the same you mentioned and, although some of them lived to see another day, after my visit Ust Natha needed a lot of new citizens, especially a new queen and princess :devil:

Think no more :) it is just perfect, install the game with expansion set, and start playing. I must admit that I didn't like it so much (I thought that there it is different, in part one you go to the edge of the screen and open a new map, and there were SO many of theme, here, it did not seem so, but... It is much bigger game, with much more connections. And pay attention, when some of the characters star making love suggestion to you, if you refuse them, they will not try again ;) When I played as a girl, I've passed on everyone (naturally:); but when I've played as a boy, I had a child with Viconia; and on a second playtrough imagine, somewhere during the play Aerie came to me and sad that she was pregnant! :) I wanted to release her from party, but she was my great mage/cleric, and I liked her innocent comments on everything; but she sad that healing is working on child to, as resurrection, so, we played along later, and I've become a dad :)

Just perfect game, the best one I've ever played. You have mods which put both parts in one continued play, which is even better :)

------------

And not just to talk about non lego stuff, Lith My'athar has stirred things in Historia, so check out pinned threads in this (history) part of the forum :)

This is Drow cavalry:
Heavy cavalry:
Posted Image
The sturdiest Drow ride on cave trolls, smashing trough enemy ranks both with trolls immense power and sharp dark Drow weapons
Light cavalry:
Posted Image
Fast to came and go, easy on their feet, this light armored Drow are riding giant lizards piercing trough enemy ranks with sharp Drow steel
Bet archers:
Posted Image
Few centuries ago some Drow realized that far away things looks bigger trough a tiny hole, so they made special masks and trained giant bats to carry them thus how becoming an immense threat from the night sky, swarming enemy with arrows. Little note: the big bets are vegetarians, even do Drow tried to teach them to eat meet and thus look more frightening, but black giant bats with a wing span of two grown elves eat only apples and grapes. Though luck  :)
Magic riders
Posted Image
Huge power of the magic troll and ruthless magic of its Drow wizard's power is a terrifying site on the battlefield. Casting firewalls and fireballs, those magic riders can make huge difference in battle.
Fury dragons
Posted Image
There are few species of dragons that are part of Fury family; Drow are using quite a lot of them, and the first one is Black drake, famous by its robust display of muscles, and giant Green serpents, with wings so large that can fly ogres to battle. Here we can see one Green serpent with heavy armored cave ogre, and on second picture detail - ogre's helmet:
Posted ImagePosted Image
And now, posing all together after the successful pillaging of the Northern borders. Those yellowed guild bunnies are easy prey even for Drow children, how not for such a might in display! :)

Now it's easy to know why Drow rule supreme!

Due to the new guild game that we are playing, building of the city came to the stop, but, I tried to merge the two, so... the watchtower for Nocturnus will also be Lith My'athars watch tower, etc :)

For now, see how the preparations for photographing go: check out sea-star monster, who could be a pet of that Drow that is feeding it, and check out preparations for the lava flow; note that all that lava is coming from the watch tower (and pictures of it will be done by tomorrow, complying with the first challenge dates); also, it took me a good 12 hours to cover  about 10 baseplates 31x16 with lava trans bricks - I simply could not believe how slow is random cheese slopes building ;)

You can notice burned up trees still smoldering, but more about them later;)

Wow! What a monumental build! This thing is looking amazing, nightmarish, but amazing!

I had to study that pyramid for a while to figure out how it was made, great job.

And that lava is looking wonderful! So many great details I could go on and on about.

I'll have to watch this one, keep amazing me!
