The SECRET 7th uber awesome tower was of course:
Ra'ad Twur from Tower Lord Wahil Musca!
Yes! Great news, and congrats to Tower Lord Basiliscus/Wahil Musca! Truly such a beautiful tower and a true jewel of the south.
I wouldn't mind seeing a hybrid voting model
Members pick 3 MOCs and Guild Leaders pick 2 MOCs
Each member would get 5 votes they would assign to 5 different MOCs (I know this is normally 3, but I could have voted for 10 towers last round easily!)
- You cannot assign more than one vote to any MOC
- You cannot vote for your own MOC
- You must be a member, with a sigfig/army pic to vote (some proof that you're actually participating)
The top 3 MOCs from each guild would make it to the final round
Guild Leaders would pick 2 additional MOCs from their guild to advance to the final round AFTER the member voting is complete
The guild leaders would then select the top MOC(s) as they see fit.
It would be nice to give a set week of time for members to vote, say Feb 16-22nd for the Embassy challenge.
If there could be a post setup just like the polling posts are, so that you could select 5 towers off that page, that would probably be easier for the Guild Leaders to calculate, instead of just posting written choices. I don't know how feasible it would be.
That's my idea.
Nice idea, rougeang, like a little bit of the best of both worlds. :)
I'm going for a bit of a mix between Kaliphlin and Mitgardia styles; right now it's probably a little more Mitgardia than Kaliphlin. In addition to what you see here, I will try to add some more greebling and minor details, plus will populate it with minifigures, and to some extent, furniture and stuff inside. Here's the overall view from the front, street-side. Note that the tan plates that look like they wrap around the first story are actually the street level; it's got a cellar. The embassy also functions as a trade delegation and has shops for Kaliphlin shopkeepers to ply their wares; those are at street-level, behind the reddish brown palisade bricks.
Comments and feedback welcomed! Is it Kaliphlin enough? Should I add more Arabian influences? Any ideas for further detailing and greebling? SI-mocs, I'm assuming that like other contests as long as the base is 48x48, I can have some pieces higher up that stick out a bit more; is that right?
I'm really looking forward to this, as it will be my biggest build yet (~4500 pieces currently), my first LDD design, and will really set me up part-wise for lots of great future builds.
Wow NM, this is looking amazing - although as always with LDD i am itching already to see it in bricks! I love the tower especially, and the docks area is pretty sweet too. As for trying to make it more obviously Kaliphlin in style, i reckon it's about right the way you have it - the main building itself being Mitgardian, but lots of little touches to make our ambassadors feel at home. Great work! I hope your BL order isn't as bad as you fear.
So decide to make a recopilation for the guild.
Aw Niku! I saw your Avalonian comp and thought "damn, i wish we had something this awesome for Kaliphlin", and then you go and deliver! Thankyou so much for this! Great music too. Are you doing one for all the guilds?
