    Love Castle

    So we continue to march over the lands of Historica, burning every city we came upon, enslaving everyone, making our armies larger We left many red Drow castles when we left, and many are ocupied now with unworthy creatures. We make easy deal of them. And then this - what fraction paint their castles and pink? Mitgardians? they wouldn;t care about the color. Puny Avalonians? All they care is about green and niceties. Kaliphilians? They like tall things, but no. That strange fifth fraction we heard trough wispers, Valrylians? Pink? Really? We care not. everyone will feel the chains and blades of Drow, our fires will burn until the center of of land Drow Rule supreme! Pink? Really? We will burn this castle just because of principle, it doe4sn;t mater it was originally Drow! Don't even send soldiers, send monsters! Hi guys :) This is my second 8x4 creations I wanted to share with you I got my hands on some pink bricks and they looked amazing when combined with red, so I built a castle to combine them The castle is 2.1m tall with few hundred minifigs in it. I especially like how minidols are incorporated, as they can wear minifig helmets, they fit nicely Like with every tall castle, my main issue was if visitors are going to reach over the display and break it, but it never happened, for any castle I also got a million (not literary) puppies in pbb box, and I waited for some happy diorama to use them - this was ideal Here are few pictures:

    GoH Book III

    wait, what? Nocturnus is no more? It can not be :) We have returned :) We will take what is rightfully ours - the rule over everything dark and evil - Drow rule supreme :D And in the mean time, find likeminded individuals to re-flame the glory of Nocturnus! I think you forgot how hazarderous and dangerous Drow can be, and we are here to flame those memories ;) Hey guys :) Nocturnus is no more? No problem, we will make the Nocturnus land alive again (well, "alive" is not the right word if we raise a lot of unded, but oh, semantics:) ) So what happened? I guess not much activity in the guild I remember when we started the first civil was in Nocturnus, trying to rule everything and everyone, but ah, we lost :) But we are back again, and with games and war we will try to make Nocturnus a powerhouse again :) Buidlign evel characters, dark and unfrielndly terrain and unfriendly houses, dark castles and similar can be a lot of fun, and I am sure there will be interest in taking that part of the story :) In adition, I plan to re-flame the old games, like Drow Gladitator Games (68 gladiators - and just look at the names of those builders:) and Drow Beauty Contest with all the (hopefully) nice rewards :) Next context will be up as soon as I clear with moderators what is what as I was away for so long, and how we should preceed, find some time and set aside some cool prizes, in the spirit of GoH :) In any case, Drow have returned, and we are ready for war and parties!

    Colossal Castle

    We don;t know the name of the island. We don;t know the fraction this city calls their own We don;t know the masters, the dreams or the desires of soldiers defending it But we know the cries of the beaten, plea for mercy, and smell of burning towers - and we have returned This island is just a stepping stone on our way to Nocturnus, where we will unite enslave all the warring fractions, and then march to the green and awefull West After a decade of gathering our strenght, stealing, buying or crafting new weapons and armor, after years of scouting the land that become complacent during our absence - we have returned Hunderds of wariors, bests, siege machinery, and new castles that we were building in silence And we are here to declare war to whole Historica, but first, let's mold Nocturnus into one big fist that will smash the others - let us take what is rightfully ours - power over dark land of Nocturnus! Drow are back ;) And we start big with this 8x4 48x48 diorama of Drow sacking an (I would think) Mitgardian outpost? They don;t build them as good as in the past :) This diorama is 2.1 m tall, it has several thousand minifigs in it, and my favorite detail are Schreder helmets (from Teenage Ninja Mutant Thurtles), as I got hundreds of them in a pbb box, anbd decided to use them sooner or later on Elvish army - they do look amazing with capes and quirrels or samurai armor I also had a lot of Chima saberthoot tiger banners that fit in nicely in diorama, as I had it for years without real oportunity to use them In truth, ever since my first exhibit I desired to make a diorama where a thousand soldiers would clash :) and even before, as a kid, my desire was to take all of my minifigs, firefighters, spacemen, pirates etc and put on them same helmet, armor, sword and shield and make them unified army Truth be told, for December 2021 I am planning 24x12 diorama with 10.000 unified soldiers trying to sack a 3m tall castle, but let's wait, as it could become LOTR diorama easily, depending on the mood and general feeling of the day I start building :) In the build itself, I wanted to wall it off from all sides, but reazlied that I need to keep one side open so visitors can see what is happening inside Also, I wanted two tall towers on front, but deadline was close, I was out of bricks, so I improvise with two gold areas. Those towers would have had strips led in them, and a broken gate Here are few pictures:

    Dark dwarves

    Drow were bannished from the world of Historica. They fought, they burned, they made war a sport - and they lost. For years only stories about them were left, and here and there individual. And in the Underground of the Dark mountains, it is quiet. The Dark Dwarves become relaxed, not watching over the gates for dark armor of the Drow, and they began to have loud banquets, to establish their place in the Nocturnus - nobody cares about them, just few underground spieces ...and the long shadow of the Drow has not been seen in almost a decade, so why be complecent? Until it is too late. And you become a plaything in the Drow dungeon. But more on that in future builds Hi guys ;) Long time no see, almost a decade ;) well, less, but still, Drow are ready to return from the exile and start some conflict, take some lands, and rule supreme :) As start, here is a Dwarf outpost, somewhere under the (insert name, I forgot, and it is not so easy to find information anymore:) Nocturnus mountains, just being leisure and being on the open, as Drow were not a threat for so long ...well :) Until now :)

    Game of Thrones

    well met, friend :) Part of a HUGE 3000 m2 exhibit, where 95% of creations are done by Beokocka crazy team :) to make things interesting, there is another exhibit 2500 m2 large with 100% our creations, and another one, but this one is measly small, 200 m2 :) and from my side I have poured in 20.000 minifigsand and around 1000 48x48 baseplates, around 1.5 tons of LEGO bricks :) - I don't know for the rest, but I think around 3 tons of LEGO altogether Imagine that :) I think we have on those three exhibits seven world records, six unnoficial and one Guinnes Book of Records official I think by 2025 I will (or we will) have enough funds to buy enough bricks to make the largest LEGO themed exhibit, not counting official LEGO exhibits, that they make with partners - and creativity is trough the roof, whole walls made into creations, water pumps, fire breathers, etc. I really hope it wil be one amazing show - and it is directed to AFOLs :) Thank you :) The issue is always what bricks I have more then what I can build with them :) I don;t consider myself an artist, my things are cool as I have many bricks, byt I find true art in creations of amazingly talented AFOLs who use only handfull of bricks - and create wonders :)
  9. Hi :) Maybe I am late with the answer, but I hope it will help others with similar issues: to find LUG (LEGO User Group) in your region, use the LAN (LEGO Ambassador Network) community locator map (link)- just find your region, and you will see all (reckognized) clubs that are close, with contact of ambassadors, and usually a club site Next step would be to contact ambassador and ask about the info you desire, and you can also broswe trough site On a personal note, joining community can do amazing things for an AFOL - you meet a ton of adults with similar interest, you get included in project and activities, and you (possibly) get access to bricks (essecially trough reckognized or rogue LUGs - reckognized means TLG (The LEGO COmpany) has reckognized them as LEGO User Group and provides special oportunities to buy bricks (for example lugbulk, where you can choose certain amount of lots for very good prices, but know that prices are sensitive information and secured only for those who participate in program, good example from your country was Sheffild LUG (SLUG) who later merged with Fairy bricks, also reckognized community), and rogue means clubs who used to be reckognized and used to be involved, but lost reckognition, yet kept connections with CSRs managers,(Certified LEGO Store) sellers, re-sellers, dark-sellers, Networks around PaBs (Pick a Brick service in Original LEGO Stores) and other sources of bricks (when we are talking about bricks), and other communities (when we are talking about activity and socializing) (sadly my community is example of it, Beokocka) In any case, I wholeheartedly recommend joining community, as benefits are huge, and so many of diferent kind, especially when friendship and activities are in question

    Hounted House

    thank you. Expanding on a set is always fun, as you don;t have to have a lot of bricks, and you can still have a lot of fun I am not a set collector, but this is how I do it - when I get a set, I build it using constructions, to learn from LEGO designers, as they have become crazy good in last decade, with amazing techniques that even today, with all the AFOLs out there still manage to suprise me with NPU, but once it is built, I eather give it to club member to do the same, then he/she gives it to another until the set returns to me (se we can all have the buildign experience, as bricks are SO expencive where I live, Serbia), or I dissasemble it never to be build again, as bricks are used in mocs Sometimes I upgrade it, like with Betmenomobile, delorean or SW superstar destroyers, I chimalized them and (made them into Chima vehicles) and everyone hates me from the club because of that :) But sometimes, the sit is so awesome that I simply can;t make it better, like the bug from Galaxy Squad: In any case, I suggest to everyone who has free time to take one set and improvise on it, and modify it in some crazy way, or to build around it and add thigns :)

    Smurfs

    kids love diorama when on events. It is so accepted, that we stopped putting "not real lego" remarks when talking about it (we love to interact with visitors on events). It was so well received that I even brought it on professional events, and nobody bet an eye, other thet it looks nice. This got me really thinking about possibility of actually combining LEGO with other things - not clonned products or cloned type of bricks, but clay, wood, plasteline, paper and similar, for artistic touch It is a pitty I am not much of an artist outside of the LEGO brick, so I can't experiment, but I have few people in club who are, and when this situation with pandemic tunes down, we will try to build something together, mixing our hobbies

    Game of Thrones

    thank you both :) the build is also done in a way that allows it to be disassembled and packed in boxes that are max 60cm high, so the towers are cut somewhere in the lower half, and they just "slide" in the premade holes made from other bricks:

    Chima Fire

    thank you, David :) wait until you see Chima Ice :D Actually, saber tooth tigers are my favorite minifigs from Chima, I think I have hundred of them, and I tried to customize each one to be diferent (impossible task :) I will post my Chima Ice creation during weekend and make link here I agree :) But you kind of have continuation with CMFs costumed minifigs, just change a head to plain colored head of the color of the mask (yellow for girafe, for instance). There are other anthropomorphic minifigs, like rocket racoon from Guardians of the galaxy or Nestle rabbit (link to bricklink) hehehe well, somebody is old scholl here on Eurobricks :) I can;t believe you remember :) Yes, and those are the same red bricks :) But I preoriented on white, and after white on dbg, so you can expect a LOT of new large scale creations for Drow in the future from me :)

    Celtic girl

    I actualy measured :) I needed 13 minutes per one 48x48 baseplate, but it was focused, work-like building My boys and girls needed around 30 minutes when building it relaxed, and when we had workshops, kids needed around 45 minutes, but they played abd run and laughed a lot :) So aproximatly 15 minutes per baseplate, or 4 per hour, as there are 100 of them (10x10), it is 25 hours of intense work for one person, or one hour for 25 persons In reality, 20 people can build it in four hours of relaxed and fun building Yes, the whole point was artistic touch. I have done other projects, but all were with pictures not of my choice - this is the first one I could actually choose (the amount of bricks is amazinlgy large - done with 2x2 bricks, it is (48*48)/4 = 576 2x2 bricks per baseplate, and for 100 baseplates it is 57.600 2x2 bricks I use only five colors because of practicality - you can have extra bricks for five lots, but if I used 20 colores, I would nee to have 4 times more extra bricks - and they are expencive As an aditional note, If I used 1x1 brick, the resolution of the picture would be 4 times better - but 1x1 bricks are just half cheaper then 2x2, meaning the whole mosaic would cost me double with it - so I lost on resolution, but I saved in finance As a personal note, I am not into mosaics, as one (usually) just follows instructions, but when it was built, the "wow" efect was... amazing. The feeling of watching something so large buitl with your own hands, that looks so good - really fills you up with awe :) I would recommend it to every community who has resources, it really brings members together, when making it together
