    Ah, thanks. I thought it looked like Nya but didn't think of you having recoloured it ^^

    Hehe I've often wondered what the shopkeepers in games like WoW think about spending their hard earned gold on all my random crap :P BTW may I ask where the face from the dagger lady in the second pic is from? Also where is the blacksmith's arm from? Is it a Mummy? Thanks :)
  3. It all looks very nice but I have to admit your choice of using Emily in the picture gives me a fun mental image of her introducing the concept of ahem plumbing to Elvendale after an uncomfortable incident the first time she needed to 'go' Sorry, sorry I'm terrible
  4. Looks great! Really looks like it would fit in right alongside any of the official sets.

    Thank YOU for the laughs :D

    ...Is that a LEGO version of the WoW Paladin Judgement set in that past picture? :O Very nice!
  7. SPOILER WARNING FOR UNITE THE MAGIC Now that's out of the way... I recently got Skyra's Castle on sale and started putting it together today and noticed on the sticker a picture of who I assume is Emily's Grandmother as an Elf with Skyra (the two were friends afterall) This got me thinking about making a custom figure of Emily's Grandmother and/or seeing if anyone else has had the same idea. Thus far the only minidolls I have are the ones from the Elves sets so I would need to Brick-Link the parts and I wondered if anyone had any suggestions? I have attached a cropped version of the sticker below. So far I figure I can probably just use Emily's head and possibly torso as it has the pendant on it (perhaps the 2016 Torso will work better as it doesn't have the stripes), though possibly replacing the arms as from the picture it seems the Grandmother Elf is wearing a top with long sleeves. I'm sure there's a leg piece suitable from Friends or Elves but the biggest issue I can see is her hair. I've no idea if there is a suitable hairpiece and I'm guessing I would need to try and add ears myself using modelling putty? Anyway sorry that became a bit of me thinking out loud heehee but as I say any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I'll update this post when/if I make progress on this project :) ~ Xaran Edit: Hmm I guess http://brickset.com/parts/4621315 could work as a purist solution for the hair, though it's red rather than brown (like Emily's hair) but it's a dark red which isn't a million miles away from brown... of course it would still need ears. Now idealy to get the massive ponytail thing going on from the pic some combination of a hairpiece with the piece use for Macy's plume (from Nexo Knights) would work nicely :D

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Thanks for the comments and reply! And D'oh, I forgot there was a colour photo of Emily's Grandmother that showed her eye colour >.< I guess I'll experiment a bit. I may opt for artistic license though, while I could use Emily's head as you mention she has freckles and I'd rather the two had different faces if at all possible. As for clothes well I'm probably going to end up with a couple of outfits for her at this rate once the new Elves minidolls are available.

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Hi! And thanks that means a lot coming from you, I love your Dark Elf customs. I think adding elf ears and a bit of painting will be my limit on actual customization at least for a while... when I'm able to do it that is ^^ The Elf Ears bit will be tricky enough xD

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Hehe thanks for the kind words and advice, I'll look into that! However I fear it will be some time before I'm able to post any further updates, my workspace for greenstuff/painting is currently overrun with poorly organized LEGO boxes ironically ... I really need to tidy up a bit

    Those Gargoyles are great! :O Oh and this is the Lava Monster shield from Nexo Knights someone mentioned: http://brickset.com/parts/6135542

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Sorry for double post but I need to attach another file. So I tried her with Aira's skirt and the white actually works quite well! Perhaps I'll try a version with the purple underskirt (I'm not sure what to call it) painted blue? In either case, changing the colour of the shoes would be the really tricky part!

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Good news! The torso came today so I can now present the currently purist first version of Emily's Grandmother! I think perhaps the brown hair will ultimately be better but I'm sure I'll find a use for this red hair somewhere :D Obviously she is lacking her ears at the mo so let's say this is her right after she became mortal ^^ I've also realised I need to come up with a proper setup for taking pictures of my LEGO. Oh well. I also hope sooner or later we get Aira's skirt piece in dark blue as that would match the picture perfectly. Or if I get adventurous maybe I can paint it... speaking of I might also paint over the rips in the sleeves from Merida's torso, though that would require good colour matching hrmm... Anyway I'm pretty pleased thus far :D I got two of Merida's Torso so that when the new Emily Torso is available I can rip the arms off one while keeping one as is ^^

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Hah well that's a little morbid. The hair and head have arrived, still waiting on the torso and legs. Also a bit concerning, my cashbook currently has entries for "Head, Torso, Legs and Hair". I'm not a serial killer, honest! xD

    [MOC] Macy's Mace Dragon

    Ooh nice job! I might have a go at making a Nexo Dragon sometime. I must admit when thinking of Nexo Knights, and being a big dragon fan, I do wonder how long until we see a techno dragon of some sort appear in Nexo Knights.

    Nexo Round Table

    That is one fine round table! Buy four of the set to get started at least!

    Moltor's Axe

    Wow, before I read your post I thought the picture was a promotional shot from the show you were posting as reference! Fantastic paint job!

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Speaking of ears, do you have any idea if 'Green Stuff' aka Epoxy Putty works with LEGO Hair? I'm a bit concerned due to the hairpiece I've ordered I believe being one of the rubbery kind as opposed to just plastic...

    Request: Elves hair on minifigures

    I'm particularly fond of Azari's hair on minifigs (The middle one on Iria's pic) Speaking of Iria, nice combination of the Elves pieces and minifigs there! Appropriate that Naira's works so well for a Mermaid especially!

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Update, got some pieces ordered, hopefully they'll come soon and come together nicely. Though she will be lacking ears for now - Warrants more investigation into how to do that part right. I'll post pics when I've assembled her!

    [Elves] Emily's Grandmother

    Good to know it's not just me who picked up on that nice detail by LEGO :) And thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into them :) I have been considering Merida for the Torso and/or Arms in fact since I made the original post. And hmm painting could also work. Again thanks for the reply and suggestions :) Guess I'll be making a Bricklink order soon ^^

    [MOC] We come in peace ..... Arrrrrrr !

    Hah that's great! I particularly like the Space pirate, ship, castle mashup! :D
  23. Very nice! Really took me back, I was all about Aquazone as a kid. Was the first theme I ever managed to get almost all the sets from :)

    [MOC] Tilda (Into the Badlands..)

    Ooh nice combination of parts!

    Wow this brings back memories, I remember having a handful of the smaller sets when I was younger. Nice work!
