  1. Thank you. It was thought trying to make them uniform but still distinct. The epaulettes were the hardest to try and coordinate. Thank you. The grey (gray) torso is Loki’s torso. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb1103c01&idColor=85#T=C&C=85
  2. Thanks. The fact that New Oleon borders some more middle eastern countries, it gave me the ability to portray that area with a bit of diversity while still maintaining a portion of uniformity. Thank you. Oleon is know for being regal right Thank you. The fact that New Oleon borders some more middle eastern countries, it gave me the ability to portray that area with a bit of diversity while still maintaining a portion of uniformity. Yaaaaay. I managed to take 5 minutes to get pictures. They have been built for almost a week lol. Also is it New Oleans or New Oleanders or?....... It is a bit confusing the demonym. Thank you, I think they are a bit happy to be out of a desert climate and into a tropical climate. Unfortunately the visor on the shako was not my idea, i say it on jackdaw2211's post of Napoleon troops and thought it would fit nicely with Oleon's army. Thank you. I was inspired by @Ayrlego's Sepoys, @Khorne's drawings, and French Moroccan Colonial troops. Also for some reason I picture Oleon's people having nice mustaches.
  3. Dear Sir or Madam I would like to present to you a new company of troops. Raised in his Majesty’sterritory of New Oleon. Financed by the De Moncey family. These troops have been trained in some the the harshest conditions and come from both New Oleans and native Guelphs. Accompanying them is Leuitenant Colonel Bernard and his three lieutenants. They are ready to serve in any capacity as seen fit. In service of His Majesty Lord De Moncey P.S. Please allow me to extend my deepest apologizes for them not arriving sooner. It seems that the ship may have been blow of course. ———————————————— Here is a little troop built for Lavalette. Below is a picture of each unit pictured. C&C welcome And here are the officers
  4. As a New Englander, you did a good job capturing the style. I saw the resemblance immediately. Clever use of the Épée as the top of the steeple. Good job on the story, it gave me a good chuckle.
  5. What can I say i am an old school guy , Thank you for the idea I had seen that done before but never though much about it. I like the idea and intend to try to implement it in the future Thank you. Out of curiosity what part was an improvement? I am trying to improve builds, photography, presentation and story. Thank you I did the best to portray a fellow Olean as a chivalrous as possible. Thank you on the duo i don't know how I came up with it but I really like where I can go with this. Thank you. I cant either.
  6. Previously A Chance Encounter Pt-1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ...And Mere, in April the lad and I........ “That trip was fun. Aye sir” “Lyle.” “Yes Sir?” “Shut it” We approached the tavern that I had been staying at for the past few months. “Jean, a letter arrived for you while you were away” “Hm the letter has the seal of the RNTC?” “Well then, I guess not all is lost. Ms. Chloe two glasses of Brenshaun’s best. One for me and on for my....." “I’m only ten” “One glass for me and ju...” “Water...” "And water for the lad” “You’re really bad at this you know” “Lyle” “Yes sir” Off in on of the corner tables a crowd had grown. “And there it was, just through a waterfall. The most beautiful flower you had ever seen. I was a small climb and not an easy feat mind you.” The man with the blue feathered hat explained. He seemed to be a dashing man for very close to him were two young maids looking at him with hearts in their eyes. And the crowd around him was a large group of men and women, there to listen to his tale. “And if you thought it was difficult getting there, try carving your way back to Jamestown. It was a harrowing experience. We encountered many different creatures like the silent and cunning.......panther” “Oh!” The crowd stated. The one of the women clenched his arm tightly. “The panthers teeth were.......” “Oi, that’s me fiancée, get yer han off her” two sailors stumbled toward the man with the blue feathered hat. “My good sir, I would not have.....” “I dun’t car if yur mum wouldn’t hav. Your asking for a head smashin” the crowd had seemed to open up so that this drunken man and his friend could come through. Not wanting to see another fight break out, the barmaid went over to come them down. “Gentlemen please.. “Get uf me” the sailor responded and pushed her to the ground. No sooner had she been push that both the man in the blue feathered hat and I jump up to our feet. I rushed over for I had grown fond of the barmaid. “Excuse me but you just disrespected the owner of this fine establishment. I think you owe her and apology.” I said as I helped her up. …I wish I could tell you that I didn’t cause a fight, Mere, but the faith states that a child should respect his parents. I threw some punches and let’s just say that the drunken sailors learned their lesson. And additionally, the man in the blue feathered hat was impressed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for viewing. Thanks to @blackdeathgr for use of his character in my story. The build is a simple one to move my character along. Under the spoiler is an additional view of the build from the other side. C&C is welcome.
  7. I laughed at the story because I was not expecting it to go that way. I like the small beach. The facial expression of the second guy went really well with the story.
  8. I really like the jungle vibe I get. And the faces for the dummies are really funny. Can’t wait to see the story that follows them.
  9. Haha thanks. I had a lot of blue and naturally went with the best color Thank you. I may need some help with the licensing/free build sheet entry. Not sure what qualifies for what. Thanks I am trying my hand at a certain type of character reiterated in a series of letters. An yea she is a handful, mostly happy baby. Since she has gone into the independent exploring phase, I have a bit more opportunity to build small things. Thank you glad to know I'm not alone The furniture is taken from a few tutorials here and their modified to meet the build.
  10. Brenshaun July 618 Mere, It has been a long six months in Brenshaun. I should probably explain my lack of letters. It all started…… Tavern Scene by Mike Mercado, on Flickr "Knock knock knock" "Hmph, who could this possible be?" "Jean-Baptiste de Moncey?" "Yes boy, now what is it?" "I have a letter for you sir" "Thank you for your services" (reads letter) “WHAT IS HE DOING HERE!?!” The boy stared at me for a few moments “Boy, do can you direct me to here?” (points to the name on the letter) “Yes, I can” “Fantastic, you will be paid for your services.” 2 hours later.... “Sir we have arrived.” “Wouldn’t it have been easier to take a carriage” “What’s the fun in that? Horseback riding is a lot more fun!” “If you insist.” “Sir you are at the house of Captaine de Moncey.” “Yes I know, that is why I am entering” “No sir you may not enter unless you have an appointment.” “Bah, I do not need an appointment. Do you know who I am! I am……” “Jean? Jean is that you my darling?” “Clarissa, how good it is to see you my dear sister in law. Can you tell these buffoons to let me in.” “Louis my dear please let in this young man in. He is the younger brother of Rene.” “As you wish Madam” Plantation Scene by Mike Mercado, on Flickr “Ah Jean welcome welcome so how did you like this new place? Marvelous no?” “Yes brother it is a very beautiful place. I take it that it suit Clarissa.” “But of course. The warm air, beautiful vineyard, lively city. She is at home here on this magical paradise. How do you like this place?” It’s alright. Hard to find a job though. That stupid judge. How dare he do this.” “Well you know how you are. Tempers rise and out come fisticuffs.” “I swear it was not me.” “Anyway I may have a way for you to get a commission or maybe a way to get into the academy.” “What what is it. I’m anxious to get this over with” “Have you heard of the orchid on Celestia.” “No I have not nor do I like where this is headed” “Yes my suggestion is to get the flower and gain prestige.” “No! No way! Do you know who I am!!” “Watch you tongue! (The smile he had shifted to a frown) You have neither titles nor rank!” “.....” “My dear brother, you have a different station now, your arrogant attitude will get you into trouble. (A look of compassion replaced the frown)” “....” “Try searching for the flower, it may bring you some good luck whether you succeed or not.” “I’m sorry brother and thank you.” “Well, I am off. Another mission of protecting convoys, this ought to be fun.” As Rene put on his hat getting ready to leave he turns around.” “Jean, do me a favor, yet not to get into any more trouble. I may not be able to bribe another judge again.” After Rene left, I went to find the messenger boy. “Boy what is your name?” “Lyle sir” “Well then Lyle, how you would like to go on an adventure?” “Sir?” “Well, off we go, we are going to need a crew and a ship” “Where to Sir?” “Celestia” [OOC] SO this scene may look a bit out of place. I currently have an 11th month old baby and she hasn't let me be able to build for a couple of months. The story was done around the time of the Celestia challenge but the creations were done recently. Stay tuned for part 2.
  11. Name: Jean-Baptiste de Moncey Bio: Jean-Baptiste de Moncey is the fourth son of the Lord de Moncey, the only son of Lord de Moncey's second wife. As the foruth son, Jea had the ability to follow in whatever road he wanted. His elder brother was to be a noble, his second older brother was a captain in the Orleon Navy, and his third brother became a priest of the Faith. While Jean may have been a womanizer and have had close calls with the law, he had never gotten into any trouble. Well until he was acused of starting a brawl with a captian in the Orleon Navy. Taken before a judge he was given two option, one renouce his titles and enter into the Orlean Army, or keep his titles and be sent to a far of colony as a prisoner for ten years. Prefering his fredom over a few titles (again the fourth son so not much left inheritance wise) he chose the first option. He back his bags and went to the city of Breshaun to await further instructions. Jean-Baptiste de Moncey by Mike Mercado, on Flickr
  12. Hey @Bodi you had mentioned something about visiting Monsieur de Roseabeau. I just want to know who that is and whose character that is.
  13. The build is awesome. I like the story an how it portays the culture of Orleon. I especially like the place of minifigures and the various poses. The archways are well done and eye catching.
  14. I like the interior detail and the guy working on the cannon. The wall on a hinge is also a neat idea.
  15. The build is awesome, filled with alot of detail. I like the story and how it fits well with both the build and the BoBS lore. Specifically, the tying in of ceremonies.
