    5m long Millennium Falcon

    thank you :) You live so close, come next time when we make Lugs United (hopefully 2022, if pandemic passes), every year there are fewe people from your country, and "hobby" enthusiasts are there too - every single one of them is an AFOL :) imagine that :)
  2. the perspective changes once you have children :) I got a boy 2 years ago, and my focus shifted from "I want to have amazing time here" to "I want him to have amazing time here" and that also presumes clean enviroment as a prerequisite Speaking with kids on events on this subject is amazing on events (or at least was, before pandemic). Most of them are aware of the concept of ecology (most, if not all), and are more then ready to give their own , meaning throw trash in garbage, recycle and similar - one can;t ask more from kids But discussion with adults is oposite, adults are mostly suprised with the bad state of our climate, they have no clue (they heards something somewhere, but they didn;t think it was "that bad"), they never recycle, and they have "this is just one small plastic bottle, it won't be a difference if I throw it in the park" attitude. The only way we can make an impact is if we all make some contribution, even a minimal one. Me, for example, do not drive a car. Imagine that, I never drive a car. If 10% of population in Western cities who drive did this - what kind of impact would it have? Well, 10% less CO2 and other bad materials cars emit. Btw not using a car impacts the amount of profits I make, but having less profit for cleaner future is acceptable (check my next paragraph) This was my main point of disagreement with The LEGO Company, as I wished they focused at least as much on ecological issues as they do on social issues (an ecology focused set would be amazing, nature is awesome and can be great inspiration - but really focused on ecology, not something with a tree), as they tak and talk, but shelves are full of sets where bricks are packed in disposable plastic bags. I buy a lot of LEGO, and every week, amount of plastic bags I throw away is suprising, to say the least. The solution would be to recall all sets untill other way of packaging is developed, but that would hurt profits, and profits are more important then the future of our kids - and that is, by definition, evil, someone who puts money in front of wel being of a child. The LEGO Company is working on a way to remedy this, and that is commendable and a step in right direction I shifted to gray and white in last couple of years, take a look: thank you for kind words :) I used to tell that the worst enemy of an AFOL is dust :) First, I never keep creations exhibited other then on events Second, on events, most of them are in displays, where they are protected from dust (and sticky fingers of adults and small fingers of kids who would like to touch, which would be fine, but mocs tend to break) But sometimes mocs are so big they don't fit inside displays. If they are flat, like mosaics, I use vacuum cleaner that has some kind of barier (female nylon sock does just fine). If I don;t have access to it (I usually do not), and creation was exhibited in a place where I don;t have displays, I use very strong hair dryer that is set on cold. I can go trough several baseplates in few swoops like that. It is interesting, almost nothing gets blown (when I build diorama, I build for transport, so there are no flimsy connections, and if there are, for beauty, I put them aside before blowing (like very tall trees and similar). Most dust goes on horisontal surfaces, meaning most is on the "ground" of diorama anyway Special note: I used to blow using just my mouth and lungs, but after tearing down 2000 m2 of event that was 3 months without display, I got really sick for a week, and I decided I needed an upgrade Sometimes the dust is there for so long it becomes sticky, or like you mentioned, there are spiderwebs involved and blowing air is not enough/ I use brushes then. First hair dryer thenbrush. I have several, from large, for wide surfaces, to very thin, to small places that bother me :) PAcking to protect from dust is something that is a must, but pack in boxes that open verticaly, check my post about custom made boxes (link)

    21328 Seinfeld: The Review

    What I would love to see is How I Met Your Mother, one of my favorite shows :) Edit: what an amazing review :) strong, simple, honest and done with love
  5. wow, those are some great suggestions, and I often get that both bussiness and lack of good photography chip away from the enthusiasm of viewrs online, although feedback live is amazing I was purposly going for the bussy ambient as the life under the sea is like that, especially in clean waters where there is not lot of human trafic. And that is the issue, in person (live), I have watched people spend 20 min in front of the display, just searching trough every cravise, trying to spot every animal that is hidden (some are repetative trough whole display, but some are unique and there is only one of them, or they are rare). It is hard to transfer that "feel" trough picture, especially with larger builds. And even so bussy, there are areas that feel plain and empty (when watchin it live) So there is always a choice, do I build it for show, or for internet (pictures) I have seen this choice mase over and over with the best of builders, when their builds look amazing in picture, but just ok on show (usually technics robots, mecha and some of the most amazing npu builders) because with photography,m you can choose an angle and light, in real life, you just approach the build as visitor and builder has no controle on what you are focusing on, where you stand when watching etc Additionaly, most of them are flimsy and if touched, parts will fall off, so they are not suited for transport and setup on events, especially if builder is not present, while things that are made for exhibit are usually modular for easy transport, and some beauty is sacrificed for mobility and sturdiness Coral Reef is built for live events, but I still hoped pictures will bring at least some of the beauty of the build, enough to make a wow effect I will try another approach in October, I will hire a proffessional photographer and try to make some really good photos (I made all of these with my phone). Hopefully this will show moc in another light But other than that, your observation is spot on, thank you thank you very much for kind words :) Where do you live, what country (city)? I am planning to send Coral Reef on a tour, and maybe your town is on the list of those I will visit with it Actually, where I will go deneds a lot of where I have great AFOL friends :) This is how I usually plan those kind of roadtrips :D And mostly Europe :)
  6. thank you very much :) This is my favorite build, yet it doesn't attract any attention :) Yet I believe it is the most beautiful thing I have ever built :)

    5m long Millennium Falcon

    Thank you :) Every year we have an international LEGO (AFOL) convention called Lugs United (link) where clubs and individuals from all over the world (yup, world, not just Europe:) come and visit us for 4-5 days of non stop parties, fun and creativity. And the best part is - we pay for almost all expencess for international visitors (Depending from year to year, on our financial state and number of people visiting), or, at least, help with costs and provide good hotels with insane low prices :) It is invite only event, but everyone can visit us, so it is actually open event. People tend to have a lot of fun, as we are adults, we are not sponsored by anyone so we can dance naked on our raft and get drunk everynight in the local pubs, as far as anyone is concerned - if it is something to your liking :) Joking aside, it has been going on from 2012, and 2022 (if pandemic allows) is going to be an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G one - and anyone that likes cute and deadly crabs is a friend of ours :D Sned me an-e-mail to nemamime@yahoo.com and we will discuss further Btw, we had two LEGO clubs visiting us from Greece :)

    I am no lord, call me just Brienne of Tarth :) Joking aside, beautiful compliment, thank you :) Regarding future projects, and I never considered myself a SW builder - SW is VERY popular amongst visitors, both kids and adults, even more with adults, but this built was at a request from a friend, who thought it is impossible, or possible but so expencive that it can;t be done by a regular person :) Truth be told, my next desire is Enterprise, and even more, 2x2x2 borg cube, with green LED strips and EL wires. Imagine that monstrosity that is 2x2m in base and 2m high, floating - anmd with such a scale, I can call it minifig scale and even put some minifigs in it. This is the desire of mine, I have other obligations until November, then I will build the largest LEGO aquarium in the world (I have been gathering bricks, animals ans fish for years now, you inspired me to make a new topic, I Will, after I finish the reply), then I am resting until oktober 2022, then I am building those two, Enterprise and Borg Cube. Keep in mind I do this for joy, meaning I can change my plans in any moment, it depends on financial situation, pandemic situation, family situation ( I have almost 2 years old kid that requires more and more time together (and what a joy that is), my regular job, and general mood of the day :) Do you have any suggestions what you would like to see being made from SW in sucha large scale? I have several hundred of Ewoks minifigs, that I have been gathering for a large giant Ewok forest village, for example, and I am also making 2x4 (48x48) Hoth diorama at the moment, but with a twist (Christmass on Hoth, fights are with snowballs, lots of cookies and present making with robot-line, all vehicles and ships are colored with Christmass colors and there is couple of hundred puppies just for "aw" effect :) long time no see, old friend :) Thank you for the wonderfull compliment During 2022, I was planning of making a Terminator (robot) in 1:1 scale, that moves - maybe we could play on it together, if you are still in the country. I am guessing left-right head movement will be easy, but up-down movement of the hand will be tricky. I want to make a board with buttons for kids, and when ever they push a button, something happens, from lights to movement. I have an amazingly talented metal frame worker in club, and there is nothing he can;t make, and metal frame will make construction easier, moc firmer and more suitable for tranport on events, and I have also been gathering technic parts for this, and I have a lot (well, for my scale, probably I have very little when compared to true technic lover). I think this would be a great challenge and could be a ton of fun building together

    thank you :) It is actually not so much a work of art, as how much it is big, which steals the show :) thank you :) LEGO is always coo,. even if you step on it :) well that is an amazing compliment, dear friend :) It gives inspiration to build something new
  10. Angeli

    5m long Millennium Falcon

    that is an exelent question :) and thank you for the compliments :) My main desire is to look as much as original. But, I deduct from that desire in regarding to several factors: - Time that I have to build, if there is a deadline (and there is always a deadline, sometimes event is approaching, other, a holiday could be finished, other obligations regarding regular job and similar). Time is a main reason I opted to add satelite dish and cannons later. Also, if I build something, and try to attach it and it breaks, chances are I will not rebuild it, but improvise - Money I have available for pieces - this is a huge factor :) I usually do not plan that I want to build something, then buy bricks, but buy bricks when there is a good deal, then think what I could build with them. For Millennium Falcon, a friend expressed desire to have it on event several years ago, but said it was impossible, as price for doing it would be so high, no one would do it. I saw his designes, his Millennium Falcon was spot on, but was several tons heavy, and VERY hard to break in modules. And also VERY very expencive, when he put numbers in bricklink - literary several apartments could be bought for amount of needed money. So when oportunity to buy a lot of lbg parts for very good prices, I took it, and was stockpiling for some time, until I thought I have enough (I didn;t have enough :D But, few more purchases (mostly bricklink at the end), and I was ready - Complexity of the part - sometimes something is so complex to build (not only building, but transportin, attaching, making it modular), that I just opt to disregard it completly (or ignore it). Legs are example - it is on the bottom, and adding legs would make everything so much complex, that I opted not to have them. Sometimes something is so complex (angles, position) that I simply don't have skill to build it - Stupidity is a facor also :) |For me, at least :) For example, I made plating of the hull, both sides, up and down, and then remembered that I need to make holding area for legs - but I already built the whole half ot hte ship - i simply opted not to include it in this version, as I didn;t had strenght to open model, add extra metal, and build everything from scratch for the bottom (including dissasembling already built, and trust me, plates of that size are holding like their life depends on it :) - Estetics - sometimes the original is not as beautifull and what you can make - my Millennium flacon actually has more details on surface, as othervise it would be just plain hull of the ship. It is just that ship is so big, that if you come closer, there are patches of only baseplates on it, with minimum bricks. I opted to add lines made from 1x4 trans light blue tiles, as they look cool and futuristic, although they are not present on original Those are factors that come to mind :)

    uhhhh, I have been planning for years :) I have made few ships that are few meters long, but they were never spaceships , always fantasy :) Sci Fi is somehow not my domain, but, I will try to make one ship during July, so I will keep you posted :) here are few ships that are more then 1m long: thank you very much :) what a nice compliment :) Thank you :) thank you, old friend :) Long time no see :) Drow have multiplied, and as soon as I catcha moment, I have few addons for GoH :) Here is a sneakpeek :) thank you :) There is actually an anegdote about it, the transport crates were to tall for transport docks, so when it arrived, workers there had to mannualy take EVERYTHING out, and unload, then return in crates to wait for AFOLs to setup And imagine this: not a single brick was taken from it's place :) I bet those who unloaded it loved to play with LEGO when they were kids :)

    actually, it is unbelivable hom much is possible if you give your best :) You really wouldn;t believe what people are able to achieve if they manage their time and skills to the best - we actually do not know where is the limit of a person :) Building a ship made out of LEGO bricks is just a small thing compared what people can do :) Trust me, try something, for example, made a 1m tower (castle, Sci Fi, steampunk, anything that is close to your theme of preference :) When you do, we will talk about 2m, then 4m - within a year, we will be discussing techincal needs of your future 10m tall tower :) You just need to start :) thank you very much :) it was not hard, it just needed some planning, and experience in building and acquaring of bricks yessssssssss, thank you very much :) The angle was very important for me, and inner construction is thus made so strong so it can support it - actually, an average weight person could climb on the ship and it would not move a milimeter :) It is my experience that, no mater how many "please do not touch" papers you have, there is always some (parent, not kid) that will desire to touch it, then push it, then ride creation :) I made Notre Dame, and after event I;ve noticed people rebuilt some of the parts, one person actually added some brick of another color to the vitrage glass :) So it was important that it could wistand mendlings of more curious AFOLs and visitors (kids are usually very nice and caring, never had a problem with a child visitor, always if there is an issue, a parent is doing it :)

    I had a proffessional metal worker weld the metal frame together. He also modified my design so it is possible to hold that much weight, and also to be able to dissasemble it in modules This project didn't need any assistance other then few guys lifting it. The project I am refering when goverment is in question is 100x100 48x48 baseplates mosaik (or 36x36 meters) This is 10.000 large baseplates (48x48) with 5.760.000 2x2 bricks. The weight of this, just LEGO would be 7.76 tons for 2x2 and 2.3 tons for baseplate - so, 10 tons (10.000 kg) would be the weight of this creation (alone, without packaging) If the average price on bricklink is 0.05 eur for 2x2 and 12 eur for baseplate = 288.000 eur for bricks and 120.000 for baseplates, which equals 300.000 eur for the whole project. 100.000 more or less, depending on colors. Keep in mind that shipping for 10.000 baseplates would be huge, as you can;t buy it from one source, most one seller has on bricklink is 168 in this moment I need 13 minutes to build one baseplate with 48x48 following mosaic instructions. From my experience, people build 2 to 3 per hour. So to build 10.000 of them, one person needs to build 30.000 hours. If he builds 10 hours per day, it is 3000 days ( almost more then 8 years, every day, for 10 hours per day. Meaning 8 people will do it in a year, 96 people (8*12) will do it in a month, 2880 will do it in a day. Let's round it up to 3000 people if you do it in a weekend, you need 1500 people to work. You need work stations, you need food, water, refreshments, medic, printed instructions, coordinators (10 people should have one coordinator), then team leaders (30 coordinators should have one team leader) and project manager, with at least two assistents. You need people who will carry bricks, setup the working stations, you need vehicles for transport (keep in mind it is 10 tons of LEGO bricks, you need packaging for finished modules, you need media team that will record, etc etc etc - the list goes one :) And truth is that you will most likely have 150 people working for 20 weeks :) still, you need good structure and good logistics for such a project Even a simple LEGO themed event done by a club requires certain level of structure and logistics, of organisation, people who make those events know this. And this requires resources, some of them are time, money, skill and love for the brick. thank you :) I acquired briucks legaly, I gave example of possible routes, damn, I must refraze it somehow so there is no confusion :D

    the truth is out there :) (disclaimer, younger AFOLs will not know this is from X files, amazing TV show:) But no, there are no dark deals and soul selling moments here, I was jast talking how bricklink is not the only source of bricks :) mafia, goverment or rouges had no involvement in building this moc :) just one small room, bins of bricks and loud music :) heh, I actually ment it as a warning, that shady characters get to be shady even in doing business with AFOLs, I thought I made it clear with " Note that buying stolen goods is not ok, and people who steal are bad people who can easily become bad to you too. " But nothing to fear, average AFOL will never come in contact with these type of characters Funny story, when I did my first international event where I wasn;t present in person, I organized a truck to transport (then) all of my bricks in creations (some 300 baseplates under creations). I was so on the edge that someone could pick up the mini-truck clean when he was stayign the nigh between travel, that I organized another car with two guys who followed it and kept an eye on it, making sure the transport goes ok With years, I got relaxed and today I don;t have armored armed escort to my mocs :D but in time, it was all LEGO I had, and I was edgy and nervous about shipping it to unkown person, for safekeeping until event setup Today, all of my creations are insured, mostly from theft and burning/melting (fire, sun), but only bricks, not the artistic side (work of art, time and effort invested in building). The insurance company didn;t wanted to insure it that way What is Scomo? :) You know, if you have a project that will bring good to your global community, I am sure they will coinsider giving you funds, but be aware, not only bricks come into price, you have manpower and many other administrative costs, especially if project is going to last several months (year). I have costs projection, very detailed, for a project I plan to do with my goverment, and I can post it in a separate topic, where we can discuss, if there is interest
  15. Angeli

    5m long Millennium Falcon

    hahah, truth be told, I almost never use bricklink for large amounts of bricks :) I buy from re-sellers (sometimes they buy large quantities of brick and it just sits in seller, and when I offer to buy everything, they reduce the price - I once bought 10.000 1x2 new bricks for 70 eur :) or 0.007 eur per piece I buy from dark-sellers (those are sellers that keep 2m tall bags full of bricks literary in their sellers, and you never ask them for the origin of those bricks, as many "fell out of truck". You need to know them for being able to buy, and they have SO MUCH. Dark sellers also have access to The LEGO Company's (TLG) special projects (Certified LEGO Proffessional, Merlin Entertainment, Local LEGO Officies) and can buy - I once bought 100 cammels for 0.5 eur each. Imagine that, guy had a working relashionship with Merlin (they own Legoland parks and have access to everything - or they used to have:) Note that buying stolen goods is not ok, and people who steal are bad people who can easily become bad to you too. I buy from PaBs (Pick a Brick wall in original LEGO shop, where they sell on cups and is measured in volume - amazing for 1x1 elements) I used to buy from LEGO programs (Lugbulk, Project support, Projects, Events support) - all those are part of the LEGO Company support to AFOL communities. As a respect for what they do, we never discuss pricess, but I am allowed to tell you that they are amazing. How to become part of a reckognized community, check lan.lego.com But they do not support commercial projects, and bricks acquired there should not be used for commercial projects, even if you leave community - out of respect for what they do and support they offer (and because it is in interest of global community that support continues) I used to buy trough Local LEGO Office (mine is in Hungary, but I made contact with several working with LEGO bricks in other countries:) They also have amazing prices, sometimes better the LEGO programs, all depends on how much merrit they see in what you do - and although LAN is heavy focused on love, feeling of belonging and community, most of Local Officess are heavy focused on results, good PR and profit - which is better depends on where you are :) But most of bricks you can get trough Goverment support - one million euro is nothing to goverment of your country, and you can buy more bricks then you can imagine with that amount of money. So make a good project and approach someone sho is responsible for decidion making, or someone who is a link to someone who is decision maker :) And there is so much good you can do with support, bricks and team - there is an endless line of socially responsible projects that can be done, that can bring something good to community around you. I think this option is best for real impact --- I built it in a month, but I am 43 years old, and I have been building all of my life. I have very good system regarding storage and accesibility, I have a lot of experience in logistics and building for transport (I have organized or participated in more then 200 events, in 23 countries). I am extremly fast builder (when I am inspired), and I have feeling in hands, so rarely I have to fix something. It is just experience, goes for any field - the more you do it, the better you become :) I don;t think that I am a great builder, as I know many, many AFOLs who can do wonders with handfull of brick :) I am more of "I build for my own joy" and I am aware it does not have the beauty of artists who create with bricks. Sometimes scale of things I build "buy" attention :) -- At the moment, the display is exhibited in Stockholm, Sweden, and will stay there for couple of months (or at least until the entry ban because of pandemic is lifted and I can enter (without carantine, as I can;t afford to sit 14 days in a hotel room not working:), and I can come and transport it to another place. My possible next stom is Warsaw (I love Warsaw, people there really love visiting events where I exhibit:), and after that, we will see --- In the past, I always re-used bricks, as I didn;t had many. But today, I have around 4 tons of LEGO bricks, and I almost never re-use bricks, as it take time to build something, and I would like to exhibit it for couple of years. That being said, I never use glue, so all my bricks are re-usable, and I have a dream of bringing all of my creations home one day (I am exhibiting in 7 diferent countries at this moment), and building one large scale Castle diorama, with 100.000 mionifigs all with same armor, helmets, swords and shields. I love minifigs and have ammased 40.000 of them already, and the only reason I don;t have more is because I don;t have money for it - but I guy offered to sell me 25.000 fully equiped minifigs (new) for 9.000 eur - how he got them? They were promo that was done with some newspaper - meaning they were legaly obtained, as he works in that paper company. I just didn;t had money :) But that is something regarded to where to buy bricks - you need to have connections, and after a time, people will approach you themselves. For example, when Fairybricks headquaters (humanitarian organisation that sends LEGO sets to kids in hospitals), I contacted their owner and LEGO representative with idea to lep my tendrils out and feel, as someone was boud to offer me what was stolen - but nothing happened, unfortunatly. I was so sure they would contact me. Once, I guy offered to sell me a truck full of stolen LEGO sets - the issues is, other then the obvious that it was stolen, the fact that I had to gather it outside my country - and I still have borders. But when people hear ou are possible buyer, they will contact you, good and bad people. Good are always better choice for doing business, as bad people are bad to everyone. I do not support stealing, but what I hate even more are copycat brands. But that is a story for some other time I am here and available to answer any questions (link) Someone asked me what is my favorite photo, and what is my favorite moment of building Millennium Falcon - this is my favorite photo, and also my favorite moment, as we were sharing love for LEGO as father and son. It was my dream come true. My lovely (very smart, very pretty, very strong and agile - he has everything, mine is not to mess him up with upbringing :D) son Aleksandar, 18 months when picture was taken, now 21 months old - imagine when your age is measured in months :D

    Thank you :) I was always planning to add a lot of lights in some crazy color, so when lightet it would look like some crossover, like Borg (green) or Cyberpunk (pink). It is just an idea I will toy around next time I have free time and ship and me ar ein the same country :D Take your time, friend :) I like being active on Eurobricks, and I love talking with AFOLs (Adult Fan of LEGO:) so win-win At the moment, it is exhibited in Stockholm, Sweden. Funny story, while I was working with Swedesh embassy here in Serbia for proper papers fro crossover, they were impressed to the point they offered possibility to think up and realize project we would do together :). It wouldn;t be the first time, I have done projects with Danish and USA embassy before, and exhibited twice in Danish embassy and once in USA, and at the moment, there is a large 4x4m mural inside it, on the wall, I made from LEGO bricks :) Check it out: (link)(link) (link) - I am the one with the white hat, and the person with black one is Kyle Scott, at the time ambassador of USA in my country (Serbia) So I am hoping that the background of already done projects will allow the next one to be truly amazing, and with a social responsibility touch (working with kids is always rewarding:), and most out the activities I used to do was with or for them

    I needed 3 hours to code the post :) I haven;t done this for a while :D Take all the time you need, and let's discuss one of the best things in the world - LEGO :D thank you very much, the mandibles were epsecially hard to build, as they have trapezoid sides, and also a circle side on one end, where they meet the ship - it was hard to combine pictures to hide the wholes where metal connects with metal, but the thing is so big, you can;t even notice unless you are standing just next to it :)
  18. Hi :) I just noticed Masters of the Universe is going on air again, with modern animation (check out trailer) on Netflix So, is there a possibility that we get this theme in LEGO form? :) I know there are some (very cool) custom made minifigs (I have a set, but I somehow keep it in a bag, it is not official, after all, and that is important to me:) How likely do you think that we will get this theme? I loved the figurines and lore when I was a kid - I strill have few :D It would be so cool to have official LEGO ...and Sauron :D but that is another story :D
  19. Angeli

    Masters on the Universe (wish:)

    now I have to google it minifigs are not LEGO-like, so maybe there could be room for magic :) In any case, maybe their licence is close to ending, or they do not have good sales and they end it - who knows :) One can hope - I hoped for The Lord of the Rings minifigs - and they came trough :) My only sadness is that I didn't hade any money then :) But I would love to have had all the minifigs and make a huge diorama :) (Actually, I did, it is 12x12 48x48 baseplates, but more on that in another topic, I will make one today:)
  20. So much happiness. So much light. And bah, the green is everywhere - you become complacent while we were exiled. You brawl, but you don;t know the meaning of the word evil. You don;t know the darks of the underworld of Nocturnus But you will remember And dark of the Drow will mark you all. Drow rule supreme! We were exiled. You can;t imagine the dangers and hardship of hellish lands we landed - but we managed to stand tall, and subdue. Our armies have multiplied tenfolds. Our armor is beter, our weapons sharper - and we are here to bring glory to the Nocturnus, the forgoten guild. We have landed in the Porth Wrath in Butcher's Bay, or what is left of it, and we spread trough the country under the cover of darknes, rebuilding our fallen forteresses under the dark of the night. Behold, the new tower of Elostirion: Well now, hello there :) I am back, with ton of new reations :) Tower of Elostirion (named as one of the towers in Middle Earth, Tolkien) is 2.1m tall, and all in black. It is massive and very detailed, but black is notoriously hard to take picture of :) My boy (one year and four months) is helping with setup, and is also super for scale :) The Drow are back, and will burn trough the GoH :) And also some nice contests will be in the future )(remember the Drow Gladiator Games or Drow Beauty Contest?:) What do you say for 100 armor, 100 helmet, 100 swords and 100 shealds for your army? And many other prizes, once I handle real life obligations of moving into new place, we will get with the new contest, totally similar as previous two - you build a minifig from your guild and add a back story and I will write the story for contest, and pure fandomness (luck) will determine who will get the prize and who knows, maybe a badge, or title or color TV set - we will see :D Joking aside, it has been so long since I took part in GoH, I could be considered a green Drow (nothing green is good, damn those Avalonians in their green tights and all that song and happines!) The Drow army is ready to saw some conflict, 10.000 strong (in real life), pictures will come in April link to larger pictures (link) (when approved by moderators, if that is still a thing on brickshelf:)

    Nocturnus - The Drow return

    thank you, go trough Goh, there are many of my old builds, although, from the start, book 1 :)
  22. Why is Nocturnus so hard to find on a map? Why are people so nice and cudly, and no real evil is featured here? Why are everyone so relaxed in here? And why is everything so green and light? It doesn't mater. We are back You know our name. We are back from exile. Multiplied in thousands The Drow rule supreme! For Nocturnus: Elostirion
