    Rimbaud's Raiders

    I like how the scene has so much going on but it int overwhelming. The story is also well done and explains the build very well. I cannot wait to see them in action again.
  2. The school was done really well. I like all the small details added like the shed, the desks and chalk board and the guy painting the brick. At first glance it though it was small but when you took the interior pictures and showed all the figures, I realized how big it really was. Good job!
  3. I really like the different categories within this challenge and how each is broad enough for interesting builds.
  4. Thank you, it was very hard to show a place that is lively without being over crowded. Thank you, like i said earlier it was hard to make a place feel bustling but not crowded. I also prefer building with interiors rather then just the face of a building if I can help it. Thank you. I feel as though my minifig collection continues to grow at an exponentiation rate compared to my brick. The wall took me a bit to figure out how much detail to make it. Thank you. The story was actually harder to write then the build was. I've seen how other players have interpreted a lot of the colonial towns and I tried to mirror it as best as I could. Thank you, I've been working on trying to lessen the amount of dialogue in a build and just allow for short easy reads. My minifig collection seems to grow as I see new pieces and look up uniforms from the time period. And do not worry too much about the Oleonese war-machine, just a simple history buff who likes military history......(maybe).....
  5. A Chance Encounter Pt 1. A Chance Encounter Pt 2. Revelations An Unexpected Turn of Events Jan 620 Mere, It has not been long since our last correspondence but I must tell you that Eltina has a lot of bustle in recent days. It seems that the news of the Lotii's raid of a Corrish colony in the New Haven Sea has gotten people riled up. In one area of the town, men were lining up to enlist in the navy. Men seemed to be coming from all over to enlist. Many troops stationed in the town look as though they came from New Oleon while others seem to be native who have enlisted as scouts and interpreters. Back to my new commission, it seemed that Rene had help me get into a captain of an artillery company. While the idea of being far from direct combat is preferable, the cannons are way too loud and I feel as though I am not suited to handle such an assignment. While at the officers quarters, I spoke with several newly commissions captains as well as some Colonels. One individual offered to trade commissions. He had a commission on a light infantry unit and I assumed that they were simply a company that had light responsibilities. I was sadly mistaken and feel as though that individual took me for a fool. The men that I have been assigned are light infantry in the sense that they are expected to skirmish with other armies ahead of any main army. It seems that I may be further in the front light that I thought. Mere do not fret too much, they have provided me with some veteran sergeants who seem to know how this company should operate. And beside, I do not foresee combat for me in the near future. Your Son Captain Jean-Baptiste De Moncey Another free build and a story for a build that has been photographed for a while. This build helps to make my characters promotion official. One of my own critiques is that I am not a fan of the blue sheet as a back drop and have switched over to an off white one to use instead. C&C welcome.
  6. yes I can here is the link from bricklink https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb1274c01&C=68#T=S&C=68&O={"color":68,"iconly":0}

    Rising through the ranks

    I like the build and how the ceremony feels full without being crowded. Clever use of the small arch as a bended knee.
  9. It fun little build. I had a good chuckle at the story.
  10. Here is some of the pieced I have,
  11. This is cool. I have some figured from the old ninja line I’ve wanted to incorporate for a little bit
  12. Congratulations on making canon
  13. Thank you, I was fund trying to find an appropriate minor god to base the shrine on. Thank you, I know the the faith is based on Greek architecture and after visiting Greece some time ago I was inspired by all the smooth stones. Thank you. the roof was mine too. The difficult part was trying to find a pattern that I liked and that I had enough pieces for. Thank you! I do agree with your point, after looking at the pictures some more I do notice how the walls next to the steps are plan. So the symmetry was a pain due to the colored 1x1 tiles i used at each point to make it look like a compass. I'm pretty sure I had him more centered but I don't remember. My 2 yr old daughter had gotten into my room a view times and took out the statue to play with him.
  14. Jan 620 Mere, I apologize for the late correspondence. Since last we wrote I talked about a shrine to the god Boreas. It is small and quaint I rather enjoy coming here from time to time to meditate. As usual my little Corrish friend asked a million questions of religion and why it is so ingrained in the minds of the people. I grow tired of the constant badgering about religion vs science, however he do make for a good and trustworthy errand boy. While there my brother Rene came by and gave me a letter of promotion. Additionally he informed of an expedition that was underway and that he secured me a position within it. While being a secretary to the expedition leader is not ideal. The idea of leaving this boring place has a certain appeal to it. I hope to see you soon. Your Son, Jean-Baptiste This build had been sitting on my shelf for a while., but finally had the time and funds to finish it. C&C welcome.
  15. Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, or Happy holidays. RL has been hectic and funds a bit scarce. However, now that Christmas has come and gone I found myself with both more bricks and some extra time. I expect one build to be finish and photographed before the end of the year.
