    Just wanting to say that I'm a huge fan of the Varlyrian family scheming mechanics, it almost adds a next dimension to the guild :thumbup:

    Agreed, Varlyrio is pretty cool. I may have to have my character visit if I have extra time.

    Why Titus, maybe thats why we are the best guild? You Avalonians are so civil, Political turmoil is where its at!

    Hmmm, that's a quick change of thought. ;) Turmoil is chaotic, civil is peaceful. :P


  2. Oh yes! This is wonderful! Awesome to see an great early Varlyrian build! As you said, the blue building is a little plain, but I still really like it's roof. :) Overall, looks a lot like Jonas's Venice style, but also your own input and style in it as well! Love that little pretzel sign too. :)


  3. Nice job! Good intro! A fun story start and I am exited to see where this goes! As for the build, it has a good amount of business, and the rocks are nice as well. I wish the grassy areas had a little more slope and texturing to them, but a minor thing. Welcome to the guilds! I just joined as well. ;)

    It seems ages since I opened this topic. The summer joust was pretty ok for me though I mismanaged my time and couldn't finish the remaining three categories.
    Next stop Colossal Battle Contest? 

    Yep, that is the next major one, I haven't seen any notifications for it yet though, so they either aren't doing it, or are starting later.

    Amen!

    Fantastic looking build! Terrain is nicely slopped and the texturing on the windmill is awesome!

    Thanks! :)

    Wow! I love the organic and natural look to the landscape!! The houses are really great looking with the old, worn down feeling!

    Thank you! Cleanly run-down is my favorite to build. :)

    Awesome! Love the shed and the way the terrain seems to roll.

    Thanks! :)

    I'm pretty sure we have the exact same sheep design! I might have stolen it from you over on Flickr, but I'm not sure...

    I love the terrain, and I love the shaping of the windmill tower, especially the roof! I have a couple of minor nitpicks of what is otherwise an excellent build: first, the window of the windmill tower has the wooden section stopping rather abruptly, rather than continuing up to the roof line or a horizontal beam, which is odd; and second, the chimney of the other building looks strange ending below the roof edge like that (at least I assume the pearl silver bowl and dish apparatus is a chimney?) rather than continuing up above the roof like a typical chimney. That being said, I am especially taken with the way you joined the different roof sections together with the inverted half-barrel, and the cart is quite nice, too!

    Your style goes well in Avalonia, as it reminds me of @The Maestro and @ZlatanXVIGustaf (whose own styles evoke others like DC and LD...).

    Thanks Henjin! The sheep I created from a combination of designs between Brick to the Past's and Mark of Falworth's most recent large display. :) Thanks for the critiques, as for the window wooden timbers, yeah, it looks weird, but it also looked weird to continue it to the top, and I was running out of pieces, because I am working on something that requires a lot of red. brown tiles... I see what you mean about the chimney, I guess it would have been good to continue it. ;) Thanks again! :)

    Nice scene.  I really like the texturing of the windmill especially the roofs.  The landscaping is great I like the way it looks especially with the plates being layered.  The goats or sheep look cool too.  

    Thank you! :)

    Very nice build.  I love the dark blue color for the roof on builds, and you did a great job here.  The dark red on the shed is also very nice.  The whole hill must take a lot of bricks, but it really looks good.  I love the goats.  They look fantastic!  The haywagon and fence are great, too.  I am not a huge fan of the super-detailed rundown looking walls, as I think they can start too look too cartoony, but that's just preference, and I think you did a great job with that here.  The only part that I'm not super excited about are the blades on the windmill.  They seem too open to me, maybe a little too short as well.  Thanks for sharing, and keep up the awesome work!

    Thanks Grover! Yeah, what you see is mostly bricks with the hill, as I have very few plates, which are all used near the edge to get a good looking edge. :) Yeah, the windmill isn't my favorite, the stonework does kinda look cartoony, and the blades are too small, and the pics really didn't capture the stonework...

    Fantastic build! You really nailed the DC look. The shape of the tower is very nice, especially the tower. All the different tools you made are very neat aswell. As I said on Flickr though, the holes in the tower could use some covering behind.

    Thank you Zlatan! Thank you for noticing the tools, super fun to make. ;) Yeah, the tower holes I am kinda bummed about.

    Very cool creation, and a fantastic addition to Avalonia! Love the landscaping, animals, and dark blue roof. The windmill fans themselves look small compared to the windmill tower, though, but I guess that's because the other building is in the way.

    Thanks Kevin! Yeah, windmill blades are too small, ran out of the necessary pieces for the blades.

    Very nice build, great textures and colors especially on the landscaping!  I really like the little garden and the shed off to the right - and the fences are a great touch too!  The size of the buildings kind of dwarfs the windmill blades, and I'm wondering how much wind it'll really catch with all that stone right behind it.  But the sheep are super cute! :thumbup: 

    Thanks Kai! The garden was very fun, and a good slap together in at the end. :) Yep, windmill blades are too small. ;P

    Lovely scene you built there!

    Giving the buildings different roof colours is a good idea, the landscape slopes nicely and adding the little garden livens up the scene.

    Love the water basin for the sheep! (and the sheep look great themselves too)

    Thanks!

    Great scene, everything is pleasant to the eye, really liking the sheep(i think) :look:

    Thank you! Yep, sheep. :)

    Looks pretty cool! I love the SNOTed rockwork and the water. Also the start of the bridge is a nice touch, too. I do think that there is a bit too much texture here for microscale, since in micro every little stud ends up being a huge boulder; that can be good for the rocks, but it seems just a tad too much to my eye. Nonetheless, you have some great angles on the walls and the cathedral? up top is particularly nice. 

     

    As a side note, the second picture does not seem to be displaying properly. 

    Thanks Henjin! I can see your perspective with the studs in the rocks, I probably should have laid back some. And yes, I did angle the cathedral. :)

    For a first micro ever, that's pretty impressive! The rockwork is great, and I really like how the fortress is 'layered', with walls centering around the top of the hill. A very accurate and realistic detail. Also, nice use of these hammers :thumbup: 

    Thanks Titus! Accuracy was a big part of it, even putting the cathedral in the highest point of the fortress. :)

    Some really cool details and good use of bricks in this microscale! Keep up the good work! :)

    Thank you! :)

    Very strong start for your first micro! The brown carrot supporting the wood bridge is a super fun design :wub: Lovely use of ingots and hammers too!
    HQ may be right, in that there are too many exposed studs showing in the rockwork. Though your style tends too use more exposed studs than I generally would, so that could just be a matter of personal preference.
    Was great having you able to compete in the Joust this year :sweet:

    Thanks, yeah I saw the carrot and was going to use it for a tree, but then there was no room for trees, so I found out it worked for the bridge. :) Super fun competing in my first joust. :)


  7. Another FB with no story, I am super rushed with the Summer Joust, so I have no time to write a story, anyways, I will have another build up tomorrow hopefully... :) I'll start with my storyline when Book III is realeased. :)

     

    Wefyrf Valley Wheat-Windmill

    This is my second Summer Joust entry, part of the team collaboration category, this is the second part of a four part collab, between Hildigrim Took, Mountain Hobbit, Jako Of Nerogue's and I. Hildigrim's the Wheat Farmer's house, mine is the Windmill where the wheat is processed, Jako's is the bakery where the wheat is made into goods, and Jake's is the market where the goods are sold in the wheat of Wefyrf. As I said, I have been building this over the past two months and I am pretty happy with the end result. :) The end size is 51 x 76 half irregular base. I tried as best I could to match their other styles.

    To my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be the Glory! :D

     


  8. Hello! This is my first entry to the Summer Joust, in the 12 x 12 Vignette category. :) Built this in the past two days, and 2 more entries to go! My largest will be posted tomorrow hopefully. As for the moc, this is my first microscale build, so it was super fun to try it out. :) Enjoy! Also, first build for GOH, just a freebuild with no story, not my best, just a quick entry for Summer Joust. I have a lot better of a build coming tomorrow. :)
