    Darkness in Mitgardia Chapter 6: Fighting Back

    The interior is very impressive, especially considering the ladders and stairs as well as the offsets between floors. The pillars of trans-clear studs detract from it, though - would it still stand without them? If not, even stone columns would look better in my opinion. Those would probably be thicker and get in the way of a whole-tower picture like the one you included, but the rooms could be seen pretty well from the sides, I think.

    Ch II: Team Simon: Cat B: Ereg Durin

    That's pretty amazing.

    Ch II: Team Simon: Cat C: Infiltration

    The rockwork is excellent! I hope you post this on MOCpages, too - a model like this deserves a large audience.

    Ch II: DG Collab: Cat C: Defending the Coast

    Beautiful harbor! Now I want to know what's on the ship.

    Ch II: DG Collab: Cat B: Evacuation

    The finished model looks great, especially the greebled lower floor. I didn't know you were planning a thatch roof, but I have to say it was a good decision. The rest of the scene looks pretty good, too, but I didn't get a good view of the burnt-down house.

    Unrest in Varlyrio

    I can't wait to join that guild when it opens! All of the Valyrion builds to date look like a lot of fun, including this one. I could set all of mine in Illyria without a problem. Anyone else planning to switch?

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    This means that all the Assassin's Creed customizers can finally stop painting their parts! Another blow is struck for purism. What I would like are more capes and rubber bands. Those are my bread and butter for minifig customizing.

    Ch II Cat. C: The Lighthouse of Barqa

    This is a brilliant build (in more ways than one)! The burnt-orange bands look great.

    Ch II: Team Simon: Cat C: Battle at Skergat Pass

    I was looking at the landscape in the first few pictures, but I had a ”Wow” moment when I got to the part without figs.

    Ch II: Team Simon: Cat C: The Betrayal.

    I'm going to have to try an overhang like that! Great build!

    Ch II: Team Simon: Cat A: Gathering Information

    I like that the wall is both curved and greebled - it certainly beats the normal 1x3-and-cylinder technique. The campfire also looks better than most - that circle base was a good idea. The one problem I have with this build is the landscaping - I feel like the convex curves don't look right without some sort of concave transition back to level ground.

    Avalonian Second Task: Departing for Albion

    It's only being judged for freebuild points, right? This isn't my Category B entry to the challenge, it's my second task for joining Avalonia combined with a freebuild. I wouldn't have thought that my minifigures would make a difference in that case.

    Avalonian Second Task: Departing for Albion

    Too late - the barn was taken apart before I started my GNAR entry. I'm behind on my posting. Also, I wanted to show only Lego in the scenes with story to them, but I see your point. Thanks for the praise.
