My first entry to the Classic set Re-imagined Category of the CCCX.

__________________

So, I was searching around for a good set to remake, and I came across "Knight's Challenge 6060"
I knew I had found it. Though I have never got my hands on a copy, I consider this set a Classic among Classics. :)

Wow, I really love this. Its a perfectly-sized vignette without being too overwhelming, and your tree - Your tree is fantastic! (As is the patterned tile-work behind the throne(s).) You even kept the colors of the factions similar to the original; you really paid attention here, and it shows. What a fun set this would be to build!

Good luck!

I remember that set! You did a fantastic job reinventing it here. I really love the canopies. What piece did you use???

The tree is nice as well. I love the overall scene. The spectators enjoying their ale and everything.

Keep up the good work. I wish I knew about this contest earlier. I always wanted to do this on my own accord.

Really great work, though that's no surprise :laugh: I really like how you kept the bases for each part seperate and the viewing box looks perfect :thumbup:

Great job, in particular the coloring of the barrier separating the two knights! :thumbup: Awesome canopy/balcony/whatever for the King and Queen as well!

Very nice indeed!  I love how you made everything more realistic and detailed.  Instead of square base plates you "rounded" them a bit and built them up.  The seating box with the canopies and checkered patterns looks great too!  It's amazing what some darker earth tones can do to a set when replacing bright red pieces  :laugh:

Well done! You caught the spirit of the original classic set really well, and yet added fantastic details!

Nice reinterpretation of a classic set! I especially like the tree-technique and that you mixed some old minifigs into your set. It's a cool set in its own right while at the same time evoking the spirit of the original. Good luck in the contest!
