    Me very excited.

    Summoning gone wrong

    Haha, clever build and story Orange Leader! Excellent introduction and quite amusing too. Also, your English is perfectly legible (and better than 99% of the native English speakers I deal with every day ). Glad you joined Nocturnus, can't wait to see more from you. The Darklands welcome thy dark and terrible self!

    Oasis Retreat

    Fantastic, simple but elegant. I love creations such as this which prove you don't have to have a giant MOC to make a really fine one. Everything is great here, the color, composition and techniques (the light shining through the boards of structure, though perhaps unintended, are a great effect!). The grass under and in front of the structure is great, as if the shade the building creates allows plants to grow in what would otherwise be a scorched, lifeless environment. The only suggestion I could share is to increase the depth of field of your photography (using a smaller aperture) to increase the sharpness of the photograph's foreground. Otherwise, flawless!

    Shinmizu Village

    Wonderful creation guys, lots of little details to enjoy and appreciate. The rockwork is fantastic, you two have developed an awesome and very realistic technique here. I'm so intimidated by SNoT rockwork but, man, it can bring a whole new level of detail as evidenced here. The mixed Asian-Venetian architecture is a neat idea. Good call building the structures at an off-angle. Always a great touch!
  5. I was going to post that photo too, but, considering we both have significant others, I'd hate for all the ladies around here to get their hopes up! Well Texan, where were you? Also, two freebuilds for the glory of the Darklands! Foyodran Tower Moruth Swamp Outpost Redux

    Moruth Swamp Outpost Redux

    To love Nocturnus is to love the swamps. In my mind’s-eye, there aren’t many landscapes that so embody “wild” as a swamp: dark, waterlogged, chirring with insects and frogsong—or, in northern wintry mode, a frozen-over backwater of tussocks, deadfall, and horned owls. Should you doubt the healthful stimulus a swamp provides the human spirit, just dip into Henry Thoreau's writings. “I enter a swamp as a sacred place—a sanctum sanctorum. There is the strength—the marrow of Nature” (“Walking”). Or, from the same essay: “Yes, though you may think me perverse, if it were proposed to me to dwell in the neighborhood of the most beautiful garden that ever human art contrived, or else of a Dismal Swamp, I should certainly decide for the swamp.” Here, here! So, without further non-GoH ado, here is my Swamp Outpost Redux. Some of you old timers may remember my swamp outpost from a few years back. This one fills pretty much the same purpose: respite for the weary swamp travelers, a place to re-supply and a staging point for Resistance forces operating throughout the Moruth Swamps. With lighting and smoke from a half-broken fog machine (it finally bit the dust on me!): Thanks for looking!
  7. Deep within the Rakarth mountains, where even Raavage's foul servants fear to go, lies a vast and forsaken land known as the Void Valley. Nothing inhabits this wicked realm in current times, but the Void Valley was once the site of an ancient and great power. All which remains of this dark kingdom is an edifice known only to a few as Foyodran Tower. Located in far within the Void Valley, Foyodran Tower rises above the surrounding lava lakes as an imposing artifact of an age long forgotten. Only a few know of Foyodran's existence, and even fewer know the dark and fearsome power which still resides in its corridors. The last one known to make this journey was Senurhem Nogad, leader of the Covenant of Nocturnus and ally of the Black Spire. He sought the tower's dark powers as an aid to crush the rising Resistance. He was never seen again. Some suggest Foyodran Tower betrayed Senurhem and that the evil powers within consumed his body and spirit. Others say Raavage, fearing a dark power greater than his own, appeared before Senurhem and cast him into the fiery pits of Void Valley. One thing is certain, however: the evil and terrible magic which lurks in Foyodran was never unlocked, much to the benefit of the Free People of Nocturnus. After setbacks forced the Black Spire to relinquish its control over much of the Rakarths, the Void Valley is now firmly in Resistance hands. Its entrance has since been sealed up in hopes that whatever dark power lies within will never be released. ------------------------------------------ Hello! Geez, here we are, another build from months ago, just now posted here. I hoped to fit this somehow into Chapter V, but other, more daunting priorities kept my attention elsewhere and I pretty much missed the entire challenge. Nevertheless, here it is my friends. Better late than never, I suppose! I actually had this thing together for more than a year before I was able to get any decent pictures of it. We Nocturnians are plagued by the difficulty in photographing black, and Foyodran Tower was a particular challenge. As the months wore on, I developed an intense hate for this build. It's just so ugly. I took it to several LUG displays, secretly praying I would drop it or some other disaster would befall it. But Foyodran's luck held out and it survived each trip (though, of the 12,000 orange neon bits in there, I'd say at least a thousand are scattered around convention centers in Arkansas and in various vehicles). I couldn't have been more excited to get these few pictures and finally destroy this evil and monstrous creation for good. Though, to be completely fair to this MOC, it truly looked much better in real life. These photos really don't do justice to the scale and design. But all things, good and evil, must come to an end. Like sands through the hourglass, Foyodran too has passed through time and into another realm (well, back into the proper plastic containers, anyways). Thanks for looking y'all!

    @Henjin_Quilones There he is, looking fine as hell! Just noticed your little trick putting 1x1 bits under the glasses. Genius!

    Tíre Gatehouse

    Ah, so there is more to Tíre, wonderful! What a wonderful collaboration, and from three builders on three separate continents! That's some lovely rockwork Maestro, especially the way it curves around that wicked gatehouse. I love all the sand green, risky to use that much I think, but it looks fantastic! It's a small detail, but the texture and color on the exposed portion of ground in front of the bridge is awesome. I certainly don't think the tudor section ruins the build, though I can see where it doesn't really need it. In fact, without the wooden section, it might look quite a bit more intimidating. Nonetheless, the overall gatehouse is very nice and well designed. Again, this looks too good to be Avalonia... where's the pink, where's the bright green, where are the FLOWERS?!?!

    Tíre Village

    This can't be Avalonia, it's way too awesome! Outstanding village scene, Titus. Nicely designed, from the little details to the overall dimension. The layout does a great job making this build look bigger than it actually is - especially with the close up shots. It's a really immersive design, well done! I always loved Jacob Nion's builds for this quality. He could take a 48x48 baseplate and build an entire city on it! The colors are great too, I always love the light bley/reddish brown/dark brown combo. The sand green accents are a great touch. I've tried several times to build a medieval style house using dark green, but I never liked how they looked. Your dark green building is great though! There's some great shapes to this build as well, the gate arch, the twisting boardwalk and the irregular rock border. It all looks incredibly realistic. If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to place a tree or two behind the foremost house in the overall picture. A big one that came up over the house and filled in some of the blank area to the right of the gate house. But that's only if I had to make a suggestion. More to the point, I really think you should have joined Nocturnus.
  11. Welcome new members, the Dark Land is always welcoming of fresh blood! Gal-Turok (blufiji) and Lord Anfauglir recently enjoyed a chance to meet in real life at Brick Fiesta in Dallas, Texas. It was an epic rendezvous. It kind of went something like this: (Except blufiji isn't as good-looking IRL as Gal-Turok would lead you to believe)

    "Safe Haven" Challenge Cat. B - Yureishima

    Nice work dude! A fun but difficult challenge, yet you created a very unique set of characters unlike anything we've seen in GoH. Too many to pick a favorite, but the snake woman is totally and delightfully creepy!

    Khadiran Barracks

    Sweet looking troop! The various skin tones work considering how multicultural Kaliphlin is, so no sucking anything here. The angled will is a nice addition, adds a bit more dimension to this small scene. Your photography could use some improvement. A solid white background that went behind and below the build would help a lot. Not sure what photo editing software you have access to, if any, but cropping the edges and brightening up the white background would be major improvements too. Otherwise, I am certain the southern lands are fortunate to welcome Khadira into the fold!

    Green Abyss

    Oh man, I saw some great WIP shots of this build but they fell way short of highlighting how awesome this is. Absolutely one of the finest swamp scenes ever. The vegetation is wicked and the rounded huts are ingenious. Fine work as always my friend! How great it would be to see tgis village surrounding a mountain with a castle on top... I love the back story, Nocturnians are often too busy scratching out a basic survival to worry about sides and leaders and glory!

    Lyrviora Bridge

    Quite a treat you've presented here, Ecc! As Mike said, it's been ages since we've seen something from Varlyrio (Gideon's Unrest in Varlyrio being the last, I think?). Very refreshing. So much to enjoy here, not sure where to begin! The late-Medieval/early-Renaissance structures are fantastic. You've always been great at bring builds to life with crowded streets and marketplaces, bustling activity in all corners. This one does not disappoint, either. I love the crowded waterway and all the street angle pics you took. Awesome work my friend!
