    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Thanks Henjin. I will introduce him this week then. He is already built just his story will affect his appears fairly early on in his story development but I see no harm in introducing him early and being vague about his intro. Cheers

    Hoping to have chapter 1 done this week. We shall see I was hoping this weekend but sick kids easily distracted from building. But the moc is 3/4 done thanks for letting me know.

    Looking to claim the following area in Avalonia. Claimed as "Riin" Please let me know if any issues and if the photo is clear. My paint skills are not strong. The dot off the coast was me claiming the spec of an island as part of; if allowed. https://www.flickr.com/gp/150574863@N04/4NW3LS

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    From my reading I am sensing GoH is on the verge of the ending of book 2. Is it okay to still claim land with the current map as is as well as to consider a contribution to the capital map etc in the near future or is it best to wait until book 3 for those specific things?

    Thank you for this. I familiarized myself with Avalonia's back story but not the other factions. If the Lion Knight is in direct conflict I will have to get creative then and tweak my final plan a bit but this helps thanks

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Alright fellow Avalonians. One last question before I put the final touches on my sig fig and intro. This specifically applies to keeping things somewhat close to canon. I have a theme and story that my character will be part of that goes hand in hand with creating a much larger scale diorama for me and my kids. I feel it will give me the chances to do smaller builds and gain feedback as I build up the sections to the much larger final product. That being said before finding Avalonia my plan and significant financial resouces went into structuring the final product around medieval figures that complimented and went hand in hand with the "lion knights themes". As you can imagine these themes do not share any back story I can find with Avalonia and their color schemes definitely do not compliment each other. So with that being said my question is this. Would it be considered impossible for a "domestic" force or territory that was not dark green or green at all to dwell in Avalonia? A force whose fealty is to Avalonia and when called upon can and would muster forces under Avalonia's colors; but whose home forces or defensive forces that work to secure their territorial borders share a very different sigil or colors? Basically the answers to this will impact how a character is introduced and where I take his story in my building process.

    GoH official challenges and my commitments!!

    Found this topic to be most fun to catch up on. Lends some faith I can make it work. I am taking the plunge into MoC building for the first time since I was much much younger. But with a 6 year old and a 2 year old running around it is hard. The oldest knows better of what to touch and leave alone but with the amount of space MoC building takes up "accidents" happen....the 2 year old on the other hand is a whole different story. He can run, climb a chair, reach tables....all while not knowing what he can and cant see....I now have a rogue chicken and cow somewhere in my house from my first moc I will have to try and locate. If there are others in the group that can build with young ones I am glad I will be able to still be productive. Was worried I would always be up against those who churn out big mocs in weeks lol

    @Exetrius @Faladrin @de Gothia @Kai NRG thank you all for the welcome. Could one of you folks point me to the appropriate place to ask questions about building techniques and trouble shooting? I do not want to start a topic or post in the incorrect thread.
  9. Small sets are great for figures and introducing new elements but it would be nice to see some medium sized, more technical/advanced building technique sets that have a good range of useable parts and less things like BURP/solid walls with stickers and more small pieces. Something that would really sell just for a decent ratio of color and useable piece counts.

    Just saying hello in the new members area. Found the forums a few weeks ago after months on flickr gaining inspiration and wondering where all these people who do great medieval and castle builds hang out. Then I found this wonderful, creative infused place. I have joined a guild or started to just need to get to building and creating my sig fig. I already have a story planned out that was supposed to lead to building a large scale diorama for me and my oldest son. One of those dreams I have had since building castles as a child and seeing the larger creations in the lego ideas books. But alas I never had the right pieces or figures to explore what my mind wanted to build. Lets just say that has changed as an adult and I look forward to building and supplying my kids with a larger scale opportunity to build creatively than I had. I look forward to building and sharing as well as gathering inspiration here. I would definitely consider myself a very very amateur builder looking to grow, gain feedback and ideas while sharing and playing out a visual adventure with my kids. Thanks for providing this awesome venue to all who run it.

    Thank you Maestro. Now that I know the place I think I will work on my sigfig and bio this weekend. Much appreciated. Already know Avalonia is the right place for me based on creeping in the bushes for a few weeks and our parts collection.

    Would this be the correct place to join Avalonia and begin what seems like a long journey of exploring Guilds of Historica? New to Eurobricks but have been stock piling figures and lego for MoCs and dioramas.
  14. In each of the examples you mentioned it looks like Lego's goal was to "try something new" if they continue with this method then we will always see something new that may not appear to castle AFOL's. But if their goal is to make money and go back to a traditional castle line then the data is there for them to be creative within that. For example the data is there for color schemes, the data is there for what size and price point really worked well over the years. The data should be there for if their traditional castle, tower, carriage, minifigure pack and the odd small set model outsold and made enough revenue vs straying from that model and to try something like a modular, creator, 3 in 1 type of sets or to keep it simple with little inginuity. Either way the information is there for lego to release it and for it to be a success. To me its whether they want to even release a new line, or if they are going to keep trying to introduce new models and themes and just put enough of the castle motif behind it to pacify the MoC builders.
  15. This is easily something I would buy into and could have huge potential for new minifigure releases that allow for a strong diversity to be injected into mocs.
