I don't actually have any Lego, so I'll be using LDD, but I can make pretty good photo-shopped close-up minifgures:

Here, hows this?

I like it very much! That is an amazing entrance gate, possibly suitable for a dwarf kingdom entrance. I would add a heavily built gatedoor though to block out the cold wind and Drow raiders.

My, my, the Mitgardians are becoming almost as aggresive as those eastern dwellers. Our caravans are still willing to do trade with the other guilds but should this attitude continue, you may leave us with no choice but to establish an embargo.

Wouldn't Drow raid a Dwarven city from the caves instead from the surface, though? That large gate wouldn't stop them at all, while it would hinder the dwarves from escaping if they're overrun.

On another note, reading through the different guilds is really fun and provides both inspiration for own creations and a good laugh, especially when Drow tourists get accused of being spies :laugh:

On second thoughts, yea maybe it wasn't Southern pesky nomads that were looting our mutual trade routes. It might be more Drow tourists dressed up in Mitgardian and Kaliplinian attire, trying to decieve and fool us into attacking each other!!

Maybe I build a replica of 1 of the Kaliplin caravans this week, and incorporate into a Mitgardian trading town vignette. A possible Moc idea?

@: TR, I've worked in your suggestions, looks much colder now ...
As for your tower, I guess bringing in some more structure would help it, e.g. make the slopes more even and the actual outpost more accesable for the minifigs (stair, laders etc.)
@BAP: eccellent gate you created there, if you could cast this into real bricks it would simpy be too great

Good day Guildsmen,

It's great to see advice and ideas being passed around.  :thumbup:

As far as the drow incursions, it is the will of the Court that all Guildmsmen should only take defensive positions against intruders into Mitgardia. We do not want to provoke a war before we can defend our borders against a much larger force, and we certainly don't want to sour relations with the neighbors and bring upon us the fury of the high king in Cedrica.  :wink:

LDD creations are great for WIP purposes but in the long run we want to see some brick-built creations. Only brick-built will be accepted as a final product, just something to keep in mind so there are no surprises.

Just so I'm aware of the numbers, how many of you who haven't already stated so are planning on building a tower?

Long live Mitgardia!

I am building a watch tower but I shall be leaving my entry pretty late as I have a few bricklink orders on the way (my viking collection was non-existant prior to this competition). Hopefully I can get a WIP shot done in a week.

I like that mini-moc of Urkcape, Darkdragon!

Seeing that many watchtowers are now in the midst of construction, and improving on mine before a vote by the guild for the 5 best.

I have taken the time to introduce some new characters..

Peace has lasted for centuries in Historica. Trade and commerce prospers between all guilds.
Mitgardia is no exception. Rich in timber, ore and fur, she grows strong and mighty with wwealth of colonists, Norse, Orc and Dwarf empires sprouting.

In wealthy Hykerbia, Baron La Flaga commissioned the setting up of a financial and trading company to exploit the lucrative trade routes that ply the Rakath mountain valleys into the Great Oil road to the South, and for daring interprid merchants that travel through Krela Labyrinths and can afford the Minotaur's tolls. As such, he appointed his youngest brother, Mr Seaburn La Flaga, to act as CEO of the consortium. With him are First Mate of the EMTC fleets of merchant vessels, and Mr John Timberman, a renown businessman and good friend of the dwarf kingdoms.

Posted Image

The East Mitgardia Trading Company, EMTC in short, operates a medium sized fleet of longboats and medieval cogs, sailing  the Eastern coasts of Mitgardia for the rich fish shoals. They also travel between the ports on the Eastern coastline, supplying valuable trade and goods from North to South.
Posted Image
Posted Image


From the Southern Kaliphlin and Nocturnus they bring black oil, precious jewels, exotic and medical potions, tropical and desert delicacies to kingdoms as far north as Northridge Castle, Pikesteel mountain etc. From these North ports, they bring back mineral ore and gold, to be smelted and minted into gold coins that are used throughout Mitgardia. Of course, this minting is done at Valholl under the very very close supervision of the Minister of the Treasury Pengus Penguinus  :tongue: .. Every 6 months, the ships do the "Barrel Run", loading up on the high good quality annual production of Dwarf Mead, beer and Ale form Omurtag and Pikesteel and transporting them back to the Southern Mitgardia where it is worth its weight in gold!

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image


Also, by the permission of Jarl Nibelung, the EMTC particpates in the Bi-annual Seal hunt in the Bay of seals, along with the native Norse clans and Tundra peoples. This keeps the seal population under control. The seal fur pelts are highly prized amongst the noble elite in Valholl and the freezing sentry guards at Hergelstorpe.
Posted Image

Lastly, the EMTC knows that the other great trading company in Mitgardia, the World's End Caravan owned by Hvar Icewind, has wealthy and vast caravans that travel West and South via other routes, hence they do not compete, but rather cooperate to fill up all aspects of the Mitgardian economy..

The next exciting venture for the EMTC is the opening of a textile and garment mill in Hykerbia, using green dyes from the pine forest leaves and cotton from the temperate farms in Urk'cape to make green sleeved torsos for the armies and citizens of Mitgardia guild, at afforable prices! :)

I just wanted to say I'm sorry for my absence of lately, but I'm very busy doing my teacher trials (or whatever you call it in English). I'll have to pass on the watchtower challenge, I think. I'll try to cook something up if I have time, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass up on this one.
