Gabe, NM & Kayne
I think this Kaliphlin building idea has some wings.
Perhaps instead of badges (actually they're called ribbons
) we could have some brick built ribbons or something and as you hit more techniques you get to build a bigger ribbon or something.
My other thought is I would love to have some guest lecturers- kinda like mini-DC tutorials - but only on a specific technique.
Sure we might 'know' about a technique - but how do you REALLY use it? and effectively ? Like we all know we can stack dots for walls... but DC took it a step further and explained the proper usage and how to really work with it...
Let's have a thought on this and see where it can go...
maybe we want to make this a Historica wide inititive.
Wow yes - some great ideas Si... i love the "guest lecturer" one. Maybe a good place to start is to come up with a "wish list" of topics and/or potential "lecturers"?
Here is my wishlist to kick us off:
1. Microscale - You could take this one, right Si??
2. Brick built creatures - so many ppl i would love to hear from, but i'd especially love to hear Stormbringer talk about how he constructs his dragons. Blake Baer is another who'd be awesome.
3. Planning Mosaics and patterns - who better but Katie Walker!
4. Incorperating the elements and principles of design in your build - something i reckon we could all use a refresher on from time to time. Lecturer... idk, someone with a art background? Shannon Ocean? Mike Doyle? Cole Blaq?
5. NPU, what it is and how to acheive it - heaps of ppl would be really interesting to hear from, but the name i'd put forward first is Siercon and Coral.
Might be hard to get some of these great builders, but hey, i can dream, right?

btw, my avatar changed to me with sleep clothes on as I am not really active atm at the forum. If everything goes like planned, I'll be back editing and updating everything Wednesday
Wow, you are working quickly on the challenge if you are planning to post on Wednesday!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I have some bad news, I may be absent in the building department for a while. My landlord decided to sell the house that I am in, so I will be scrambling to find a place. So the next few months I may have to have my collection in boxes.
I will still be around the forums and commenting though.
I almost most definitely will miss the 3rd challenge. I am sorry, I know we need the points.
Ah, that sucks dude, i hope you find somewhere else soon.
I'm sure we'll have plenty of guild members to step up and post cracking entries in your absence, but we'll miss your great builds.

Here's the thread for the Myth of Tiafra and Garnafuxo
This is my first forced-perspective build, as well as my first microscale. I think it went fairly well. Those are the towers of the city of Messahmuk, then the moonlit Muktifra Bay, and mountains in the far distance. I purposefully kept the foreground architecture simple so as not to distract from the background view and the story. BTW, I took the liberty of deciding that our world has two moons; makes it so much more interesting.
More to come as soon as I get a chance...
Wow Gex, that's brilliant! I love that forced perspective, so believable.
I'll have to remember that about the moons if i do something similar, great idea!
Btw, i've just posted another free-build: "The grand entrance", you can teleport to the topic (hopefully not in your PJ's!) by clicking the image:
I'm working on another free-build as we speak - i'm trying to work as many Kaliphlin mocs into the MocAthalon as i can!
