    Celebrating Guilds of Historica, final contest!

    Math is not my strong point, but it seems to me that the example builds given in the prompt increased the size of the footprint from one to the next (I didn't count, but just eyeballed it...). I would say, go nuts. Make it bigger, more detailed, more elaborate and fancy in every way. Because why not? It's a celebration!

    You are welcome! Too bad it took me a year for some of them. I have also updated the map in the first post to reflect a few new Avalonian hamlets that have passed the bar from Task 4.

    Awesome armies, @Sympatik Brick! Glad to see some fierce warriors protecting our realm. My only question is, why are the elves so angry?

    Frodo, maybe?
  8. @Aurore, don’t listen to Garm! We frown in creativity here in the guilds and are really, really, really strict about the finer points of interpretation of rules. Just kidding, of course. As long as you have the required bits, you are fine. And if you used a dash instead of a colon, or brackets instead of parentheses, or forgot to capitalize or properly punctuate something, your whole entry gets thrown out. I mean, doesn’t get thrown out. Ahem. Except maybe your CMF entry, since it’s a little too good, and we’re going to need a blood and urine sample to test for performance enhancing bricks.

    I definitely laughed out loud at those goats…that’s at least $140 of goats right there! Also the wizard is perfect. Love the baby fig used there. But all of them look good.

    Welcome to Avalonia! It’s great to have you in our great guild. I do think your link is broken, however, since it does not lead to anything. For linking pictures, it is much better to use the BBCode function of Flickr, rather than just posting the URL. A helpful tutorial can be found here. Again, welcome, and I look forward to seeing what you build!

    Thanks, Aurore! Yes, Logh’s kilt is from CMF Ginny. I was throwing some combos together and thought it could work for a kilt, if paired well. And I figured someone needed to make a bearded female dwarf at some point! I’m not sure what the torso is on Dworthi, though, but the arms at least are from the Batman CMF March Harriet. I wish you had a made a tree-person! I love tree persons of all sorts, myself. Though perhaps it would not have fit into the torture theme you had. Thanks for the detailed feedback, Exetrius! First, I don’t like the color of the Laeon’s pig, either, but I don’t have one of the tan/brown ones, just the pink one. Sigh. Second, I can understand the wish for better guild coordination in their colors, but as you yourself have noted below, it’s just not practical to have everyone from Avalonia wearing dark and sand green, everyone from Nocty wearing black and red, etc. I mean, I’m American (‘Murica!) but I seldom wear red, white, and blue. On the 4th of July, maybe, but beyond that I prefer to wear greens and browns. So too, I imagine, most civilians of most lands across time. Soldiers would be different, perhaps, if they were a regulated army, but a civilian militia won’t even have color coordinated uniforms (or anything uniform at all, probably). But perhaps a main point I’d like to make with this CMF line is that there isn’t a clear distinction between the common folk of the different guilds; every race is found in every guild, in some quantity, and thus the guilds are more homogenous than perhaps we like to imagine. Thanks, Geneva! I liked the beard with braided hair, too! It seemed too good to pass up. Thanks! TLG would release one fig per series of this sort, except they’d all be yellow skinned. Thanks! I like him too. Thank you! Those are some of my favorites, too! Thank ye, Cap’n! Thanks for the apologies, Exetrius. It was unnecessary, since no feelings were hurt and no wrongs done, but a noble gesture nonetheless! I am pleased that you have come to see it from my point of view after trying to make your own series, because the colors really are an unrealistic constraint. Now if only you could be brought to see it my way for skin tones… Haha, thanks!
  12. Got my CMF entry typed up finally. Shooting for second place here...

    The Guilds of Historica 10th Anniversary Collectible Minifigures By Henjin_Quilones Avalonia: Benjamin Stenlund Chronicler, poet, and philosopher from the Royal Guild of Letters in Albion "No, I don't do autobiography." Quickroot Butterfly-loving Grent of the Enchanted Forest "I am Grent?" Ayriel Greenbough Centaur princess, who sings to the birds while she frolics in the meadows "You want turtledoves? I've got twenty! But who cares, no big deal, I want more!" Thom Mayne Weather-beaten North Coast lobster fisherman and sea captain "Catching lahbsters is a pinch, Ah mean, a cinch!" Kaliphlin: Kyrival Ithi Humble innkeeper from Mophet, serving traders along the Oil Road some of the best distilled spirits "You want another round, Sweetcheeks?" Jairus Hippokles Cosmopolitan centaur hairstylist and barber from Petraea "You'll be the mane attraction after I'm done with you!" Kan Tork Nomadic desert shaman from the Siccus Badlands "The smoke from my green fire's the thickest, I'm the best shaman in the whole dry Siccus..." Mitgardia: Logh MacThror Champion caber tosser and ax thrower "Ach, just a wee dram more o' this aqua vitae, thank you very much!" Dworthi Forkbeard Stunning dwarven beauty, once named Miss Mitgardia while representing Omurtag, and now a skilled miner "What are you looking at, Babyface?" Jelsa Ice witch from the Frozen Beyond who just wants her father to let her make her own decisions "The cold never bothered me anyway."

Bautor de Sange Noble vampire warrior from the city of Shadowmere and fifth cousin, twice removed, of Lord Vladivus "I promise not to bite..." Laeon of Katton-on-the-Marsh Lionell who makes a living collecting mushrooms with his pet pig, Baekkyn, in the Moruth Swamplands "I'm pretty sure the red one is edible, and the tan one poisonous. Baekkyn, what do you think?" Varlyrio: Hai Sairuk Centaur archer and warrior from the western Wastelands "Looks like meat's back on the menu, boys!" Moussi di Tacci Bravo and thrill seeker from Illaryian, known to do most of his thinking with the tip of his sword "Stick her with the pointy end, er, I mean, stick them, ahem, haha..." Noim Venqi Gnome inventor and chemist, famous for having both of his eyebrows despite his advanced age "Eurekaaaaouch!" ___________________________________________ I love collectible minifigures. I love minifigures in general. So of course this challenge is always one of my favorites. I went a bit centaur-heavy on this one, probably should have swapped one of them out for an elf, but oh well. Yes, I know there is still time. But my kids separated some of the figs and now the heads are lost somewhere in the massive pile of unsorted ABS on my building tables, so it's just too daunting to consider. Better luck to me next time, I guess.
  14. So colorful, so delightful to behold…sigh, I guess trying for second place isn’t bad…

    @Eyrezer, welcome to the great guild of Avalonia! I’ll get you added to the first post soon. I love the creative minifigure, and it’s always great to see new species in the guilds!
