    Wolfs in the Sand (Part I.)

    I really like this build. The brick built camel works well, I think, and the layered dark and light tan wedge plates looks great. The tree with the small rock stand out on a small vignette like this and look good. As others have said, the black base has a lot of contrast, and I think you could probably get away without it, but it doesn't really detract from the build, so it doesn't really bug me much. Very nice job!
  2. Nice build! I like the practical use of the interior space, and especially the rafter beams. The roof is creative as well and looks good. I like the barrels stacked, too. Why do they have a tan lid? Is that supposed to signify something? I like the working doors and the service window, too. Nice work!

    Oceans apart [Ch II Cat A]

    That's a great small ship design! I like the use of the dark blue for water as well. I would agree that it looks like some of those boxes are not secure! If you have a net piece, you can throw it over the boxes like they used to do to secure stuff on deck. Nice job!

    Knight's Quest [Ch II Cat B]

    What a fun creation! I love the movement in all of it. Reminds me of those ninja warrior courses but medieval. Great job!

    Don't Cry

    You do a really nice job with the closeup pictures and the detail in the background for all the walls. The wonky setting of the walls gives a feeling of a disrepaired, maybe unusual rounded setting that works very nicely. Sometimes the story is so complex as to be confusing, but a re-read helps. Well done!

    [WIP][AoM House Phase 2] Homecoming

    Great build! I will echo what others have said, and agree that the house itself is fantastic. I wouldn't change anything. Love the detail in the tudor work with the curved tiles and the varied color walls of tan and white. The stone work looks good for the building, and the roof is spot-on. The main road looks good, and I think the color choice is good as well. The dark green looks good for areas that are shaded, but for the large leaf plants, you could go with less grass, or even some olive green to signify the grass struggling there under the shade of the plants. As Bas said, the large leafy plants kind of look too big for figures, but, if you do something like what en_zoo did in his latest build, you can add large flowers (en used colored radar dishes) to them and then it just looks like a large leafy, flowering plant and it appears to be more proportional in my opinion. Hard to critique this, though, as it's very good!

    The Order of the Iron Circle

    This is a very cool build. I like the clean lines and especially the interiors. The dark and light grey colors are great, and they work well with the dark red roof. I like the use of the slope pieces as well, as I have always preferred them for roofs that are meant to be well maintained. The raised porch with stairs looks great, and the interiors are a lot of fun. If you were to improve on this, you could get rid of the vertical lines by overlapping the brick facade bricks, although this would necessitate putting non-facade bricks on the end or somewhere in the middle. The olive green vines up the side of the building are great, though, and I think really help tie the levels together. Great job!

    CHALLENGE II: Category C: At The Races

    Really nice work! I like the details int he stonework, the many spectators, and the racers themselves. The color choices of the dark orange and white work well, too. The story is good: clear and concise, easy to follow. I look forward to more builds and stories from you!

    CHALLENGE II: Category C: Power

    This is quite the story! I have been reading along. Kind of dark in parts, and glad you didn't build that, but the builds are very nice. There's a lot of detail there and great use of the printed bricks from the old adventurer's sets. Great job!
  10. Really great work! There are so many great details here: the person swimming in the water, the key and the saw above the doors denoting the shops, the detail of the doors, the awesome blues you use in your tudor designs, the wagon with supplies, the foliage near the well with some great flower work (which is color coordinated), and the minis being posed. The roof texturing is awesome, too. The only part I'm unconvinced of is the color choice on the roof. The dark green seems unusual to me by comparison to the browns. I don't know if it's meant to be like moss or something, but it's the only part I'm not totally in love with. What a great build! Keep up the great work!

    Kashgar Theater [Ch II Cat B]

    Love all the little details with the canopy, the snake head, all the painted skies with the clouds, etc. as the background! The candles, tree, and stone benches make a believable but clean scene. Nice work!

    Murder at the Golden Flag Inn

    Very nice work! I love the detail that went into the interior walls, the hinge pieces for cabinet doors, and the grill pieces around the fireplace that help give texture to the brown bricks. The plates stacked with the jumpers to give a brickwork effect on the quay is fantastic. It really lends to texture that's believable on the stone. The entire housefront there looks very good and the color choices are bold, yet not outlandish. Excellent work!

    Alistair's Forest Lair

    What a fun build! I like the minotaur cave--it seems very natural. The snow hanging in spots around it looks good, and the larger snow bank near the trees looks nice as well. The trees are great, and you make good use of that building technique. Very nice job all around, with a good story to boot. I look forward to more!

    Varlyrio Guild Challenge 2E: Spring of Styx

    This is a pretty build with a nice use of colors. I'm assuming that the tree is kind of dormant or half-dead, otherwise may benefit from more foliage as others have said. I like the dark color choice and the bright blue opposed to that. While small, there is a nice level of detail and I really enjoy the story! Great job!
  15. Nice work! I like all the details that make the MOC seems very Varlaryian: the small columns, inclusions of gold decoration, the nice railings around the stone harbor... well done! I appreciate the work and time that goes into taking closeups for conversations as well; it is a lot of work but sometimes helps clarify who's speaking, and adds something of a movie-like or comic-book feel to the story, keeping the reader moving along. Great job!
