    The Eltina Courrier - June 618

    But the Eltina Courier has been brought to us by the WTC? Are you planning to sue yourself?
  2. Little known to most, Lord Augustus Fernsby actually has an older brother, Cecil Fernsby. Cecil is considerably older than his younger brother Augustus, having commanded a company of the 7th Royal Hussars in the Juniper Wars. It was back then that he suffered a severe case of shell-shock in one of the final battles of the war. He has since gone somewhat...mad, earning the moniker Lord Buckethead for his newfound obsession with bucket related headgear. He is always followed by his former lieutenant from the war, Bob who has taken it upon himself to take care of Cecil, due to his unpredictable nature. The pair have traveled to Mesabi Landing in search of new riches, their first business venture, the establishment of a mine in Mesabi Landing. Granted many other mines have been built there, none of which have really found anything, but Lord Buckethead's feeling lucky. To find his riches Lord Buckethead has enlisted the help of the Royal Engineers who have grown tired of Mesabi Landing. _______________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing my latest build, its pretty light on story but I haven't had a lot of time lately. Lord Buckethead is a character that I will be developing in Mesabi landing when I get time to build, along with Major Walsh. this will be licensed as a prospecting build.
  3. Map Name: Studica Grid: E8 Location: Science and Research Centre Delta After the first invasion, site Delta was placed under the control of Xenorian intelligence. The testing that takes place in the facility is highly classified and is unknown even to the upper echelons of the Xenorian Aristocracy. Suddenly in the midst of an experiment, the alarms in the facility are sounded. Site Commander: What is it agent? Xenorian Agent: There appears to be multiple heat signatures moving in from the North-West, but I can't get a clear visual due to the rain. Site Commander: Check in with the team outside, it's probably nothing though. Xenorian Sergeant: We can't see much out here at the moment sir, but everything seems in order. Xenorian Agent: Affirmative sergeant, just make sure to keep an eye out. Sergeant Buckethead: Slow and steady boys, we're in no rush. Corporal Gump (Sniper): Sir, looks like they've got a machine gun nest up top, you want me to take it out? Sergeant Buckethead: Affirmative corporal, on my signal. Sergeant Buckethead: Corporal, everyone's in position take the shot. Just as the sniper takes the shot, a bolt of lightning appears throwing off his aim. In response the Xenorians begin firing wildly into the shrubs. The two sides exchange fire for a number of seconds, neither able to properly see each other until the two Xenorians by the door are killed. Sergeant Buckethead: Everyone regroup at the bunker door, on me. The Refnorians mass at the bunker door, Corporal Tillerman fires a grenade at the machine gun nest, taking it out. Sergeant Buckethead: Specialist, where are we at? Specialist Parker: I count five KIA sir, probably more wounded. Sergeant Buckethead: ****, Corporal Tillerman, any idea how we're gonna open this door. Corporal Tillerman: Well sir, looks like the doors weakest at its edges, where the hinges are. Could probably cut around them with the saw and blow it down with a bazooka. Sergeant Buckethead: You sure it'll work? Corporal Tillerman: Maybe? Xenorian Agent: What are they doing sir? Site Commander: They're cutting around the edges, everyone back now! Private Sawyer: Backblast! While the bazooka barely dented the door, the blast pushed it clean off of it's hinges. Smoke filled the air and the Xenorians covered their faces, trying to shelter themselves form the smoke. The Refnorians piled into the bunker, as the Xenorians fired blindly in a frenzy. Several more Refnorian soldiers were lost to enemy fire, but the resistance at the entrance eventually fell, many of the Xenorians in shell shock from the blast. As Sergeant Buckethead finished clearing the entrance, the squad was paid a visit by Colonel Matthias. Colonel Matthias: Good job Sergeant, good job indeed. You'll soon be reinforced by 2nd and 3rd Squad at which point you can proceed further into the complex, for now I want you to hold the entrance. Sergeant Buckethead: Yes Sir. ______________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing my first Campaign entry, admittedly it's not as polished as I would have liked, especially in regards to the presentation, but oh well. I was unable to use my lightbox, nor edit due to my current circumstances so sorry about that. I also acknowledge that the story isn't very realistic at all, but what can I say, I'm not a very good writer.

    [GBW] - Troop Movement - Refnor - Catching the Train

    Thanks, are we not allowed to use them? If not I can easily change them for something else.
  5. In preparation for the upcoming offensive, Refnorian High Command saw fit to mobilise the reserves given the potential consequences of the mission failing. Sgt. Buckethead was one such reserve, he and his platoon were lucky enough to catch a ride on one of the trains travelling to the front. Others weren't so fortunate. While the looting of enemy bodies was officially forbidden by the Refnorian military, it didn't stop some people trying to search for trophies from Xenor's notoriously well equipped troops. Thank you for viewing my first GBW build, if I've missed something or I've done something wrong I would greatly appreciate it if you could point it out so I can fix it right away.

    [SR - MCRA Mar] On Trial Again

    I believe it's from one of the nexo knights sets, the castle I think.

    [COR WTC] WTC Monthly - Special Issue No.2

    Two issues of the WTC monthly in the same week, we are truly blessed. A very entertaining read Drunknok, thank you. A faculty of gender studies? Such nonsense belongs in Oleon, not in the prestigious colleges of Corrington.

    Future Pirates Speculation

    I'd really like to see the islanders return, but unfortunately I just don't think it's going to happen. I mean there are people who think it's offensive when a little Caucasian girl dresses up as Moana, so an islanders theme, no matter how well done or how accurate just won't sit well with a lot of people. It's a shame but I understand that it's in Lego's best interests to avoid any controversy whatsoever, no matter how stupid the claims are.

    Future Pirates Speculation

    So you're arguing for better representation for island natives, while at the same time suggesting the pirates be depicted as the good guys/allies? I actually agree with @Maxim I. I don't understand why we always need to be stepping on eggshells whenever discussing these topics.

    Account Summary

    A few days ago I licensed some properties that I built in Mesabi Landing, one was a medium artisan, one was a medium residence and the other was a small commerce. However in the form for the small commerce I accidentally put 'Lord Buckethead' as the settlement. Would it be possible to have it placed in Mesabi Landing or at least unlicensed so I can license it in Mesabi Landing. Thank you in advance.
  11. The incident at the railroad station had proven to Major Walsh that no local militia would be able to protect important assets in Mesabi Landing and so under her orders, Crown troops under the command of Captain McDowell were brought in for security. "I want no less than five troops on watch at the railroad station at a time, patrols up and down the railroad by the hour and all cargo being transported into the railroad station must be inspected thoroughly" said Major Walsh, "have you got that?' "Uhh, yes ma'm" spat Captain McDowell. "Good, from this point on I expect this railroad to be in working condition 24/7 with absolutely no interference from the WTC" replied Walsh. "Nothing is to prevent this project from being completed on time, not even the fools who are paying us to do it." "Of course ma'm, but if you dislike the WTC so very much why not just offload the project to someone else." "Because that is not how one earns a promotion Captain, unlike Fernsby I don't have the luxury of picking and choosing what and where I want to do something." said Walsh "I promise you, first chance I get I will be going back to Belson but I still have three more years of mandatory service." "Oh, I see" replied Captain McDowell. ________________________________________________________________ Once again thank you for viewing, this is the second part for @Drunknoks incentive. Both of the properties (an artisan and a residence) are to be licensed as mediums. For this build I attempted to mimic the style that @Mesabi has set for Mesabi Landing. I'm still unsure if I'm actually happy with the results so any suggestions for improvements would be much appreciated.
  12. With the discovery of coal in Mesabi Landing and the subsequent large-scale mining of it, it was decided that a new system of transportation was required to get the large amounts of coal from the mines to the settlement. After the successful implementation of the new and innovative railroad technology on Cocovia the choice was fairly obvious. The construction of this new railroad fell to the Royal Engineers who just so happened to be stationed in Mesabi Landing. Ordinarily they would have refused a job like this but they were being paid well for it. Fortunately this railroad was to be nowhere near the size of the one built on Cocovia and so it was a fairly quick project. Major Walsh was aware of the exploits of the WTC marines and was determined not to let them vandalize her latest project. To protect the railroad station she hired some trustworthy local men to form a small militia. While Major Walsh gives orders to the newly formed militia her subordinates whisper among themselves behind her. "Why are we actually building this railroad?" said one of the engineers "The WTC is openly using child labour and yet we still help them?" "Idiot, it's all about the money" replied the other. "Yes but morally it's..." before being interrupted by his colleague. "No one cares about morals, especially not in this place. We do what we do because we get paid for it, no further questions asked now shut up and get back to work." However the militiamen were unable to stop the WTC. __________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing my latest builds in Mesabi Landing, this one is for last months incentive (with a residence to be posted tomorrow, I'm just tired at the moment). Any eagle eyed viewers will notice that this build is pretty much just a complete rip-off of @Ayrlegos Cocovia Wagonway build but he told me that the best way to improve is to imitate builders that you admire so it's justified (somewhat). The lavender version was just me being silly disguised as WTC shenanigans.CC would be much appreciated.
  13. "Mesabi Landing, you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" said one of the engineers as he looked valiantly into the distance. "Shut up!" replied Major Walsh as she smacked him over the head. "We'd best move fast if we don't want to get robbed" "Hey, the locals don't look that bad" added another engineer. "We just need to politely introduce ourselves". However as he approached one of the citizens he was yanked back by Major Walsh. "People here don't take kindly to servants of the crown" she told him "and in case you didn't notice they're handling weapons, so lest you want to be shot I would recommend leaving them alone" "I don't get it though, if it's so bad here then why have we been stationed here?" "Because the citizens of this settlement have been living tax free lives for too long, we're here to build them a tax office, or at least repair they're old one" replied Major Walsh. "But did they really need to send a whole company of us just for that? It seems like a pretty simple job" "It is, but there are also personal reasons for coming here, reasons that needn't be discussed at this point in time" said Major Walsh "Well I would say that those reasons should be discussed at this point in time, seen as you've dragged us to this ****hole because of them" Major Walsh smiled for a second and the replied with a quick and simple "No, they don't" ________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing, this is just a small build to show my engineers arriving in Mesabi Landing (as you may have picked up from the title) which is relevant for some later builds. All CC would be much appreciated.

    Useful Pirate Pieces from other Themes?

    I did it myself and I would highly recommend that you do it too if you are able too, it looks amazing.

    Very interesting @Mesabi, I find it strange though that the Sea Rats even have an income (however small it may be). Thanks for doing this up. Can we please not turn this into a pissing contest, I know that they started it but I don't really want to see another argument. Also keep in mind that @Drunknok isn't a native English speaker (or at least I don't think he is).
