The big golden meat cleaving type swords? they're from the Ninjago set 9441 Kai's Bike.
What exactly are you stuck with the roof? do you have any wip pics of it? If you're really stuck then use overlapping plates, that's if you're bothered about studs showing.
. For context, my Nocturnus House next door is pretty big, I don`t want a tall roof as it might overwhelm the embassy. The basic problem is, the design I like, I don`t have the right bricks in the right colour in the right quantity..
If anyone has a strong idea for the upper floor wall design, I`m open to all thoughts. I am torn between the mage scene I have planned inside, or making room for a staircase, and that would impact the upper frontage.
This is the house front and side views
The Embassy roof, I am really happy with. I would like to do something like this little red roof for the Nocturnus House, but my black roof tiles are all the conventional ones - I could use the Ollivander`s roof I guess, but it would be too tall...
here are my other fragments so far - the front gate and the ballroom floor. If we have any mosaic experts here, I am not sure I have got the mosaic calculation right so any advice appreciated.
front gate - where to put the bouncers? Ballroom floor - what to do about the gaps?

It will be on a 32 x 96 base, and it is going to be a crumbling fortress built into the great escarpment. I plan to have it partially crumbled and inhabited by a clan of mummies.
Looking forward to this, Kayne
. Sounds awesome!

I'm beginning to think this whole Historica thing was organized by a bunch of BrickLink sellers to boost sales
definitely! I shudder to think how expensive the Embassy will be! Expect all my other buildings to have very similar parts from now...
I am going to enter my kitchen as a free build now, just in case (perish the thought) I can`t finish in time.
