    With the hunters

    Just like previous commenters, I really like the Stream banks and the brick-built ox. Very enjoyable build, and very enjoyable story!
  2. @Grover As far as my search capabilities go, BAM Ice Guy's head and torso don't seem to be listed on BrickLink yet. I looked for their ID on my parts, but couldn't fint it either : isn't the part number supposed to be engraved somewhere on torsos and heads too? Or is it only on regular bricks?

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    @Broke4Bricks That's a very interesting list, thank you! There are two parts in the shots that don't seem to be BAM-exclusives : - The black torso with a skull and dual-molded arms also comes with CMF Serie 16 Spooky Boy, - The printed white skirt piece also comes with Princess Leia from the Tantive IV set. You could also add the following parts to the list of exclusives : The orange and black pigtails The orange legs with bat and pumpkin print The black terrier dog The dark bluish grey cat with pink nose
  4. @jonwil Not enough to make accurate statistics, but here are the time facts for the three orders I placed in january : the one placed on the 7th was shipped on the 20th, the one placed on the 14th was shipped on the 24th, and the one placed on the 17th is still in warehouse.

    [MOC WIP] Horgaard Hall

    @The Stad Thank you very much for all those point to think about! I have thought of the overall appearance and use of the hall, but a more precise idea of its functions will indeed be necessary to plan the spaces. Your comment about scale and proxemics is very thought-proviking too - I never asked myself such a question, and the answer seems to be quite complex given the discussions on this topic. @Kai NRG, @Grover, @Eoin Wallace and @zoth33, thank you very much for your support. I hope you'll enjoy the process!

    [MOC WIP] Horgaard Hall

    Chapter 1 - What could it look like? OK, so I want to build a mead hall. Which means a place to hold hearings, and formally receive visitors. And also a place for all villagers to gather and feast for weddings, victories, or any other pretext they can find. Thus it should be a rather large and dignified building - but neither too large nor too dignified, as Horgaard is just a small village. And, being in Mitgardia, it should feature a distinctively norse-inspired architecture. But just saying that doesn't really help me picture it more precisely. Fortunately, norse-inspired fantasy visuals are everywhere. A mere google search returns dozens of different mead hall styles, ranging from simple longhouses to elaborate stave church lookalikes. So I gathered inspirational pictures in an ArtStation collection, and tried to identify the color palette I'll go for and sketch a few architectural elements.
  8. Introduction : Sigrid's journal "We were called to a meeting with the other village leaders yesterday. Jarl Elisif wanted us all to know about the victory at the Enchanted Forest. Of course, the word had already spread, and everyone was already talking about how Jarl Thimolir's bear cavalry saved the day. After months of tensions, even the most ardent sceptics now seem to veer to the side of the Queen. And that's great news. Instead of worrying about a possible war, we can now hope for peace. Instead of focusing on arming and training our people, I can now step back and also plan for the long term. It's time to rebuild Horgaard." In order to assist my sigfig's efforts to rebuild her village, I'm going to build a mead hall. And given that this is the first time I'll build such a MOC, I expect a lot of thinking, a lot of trial and error, and a lot of time. During the months by the housewarming hallwarming party, here is the thread where I'll track the progress of the construction and all the thinking behind. History Chapter 1 : what could it look like?

    Lego hair pieces

    @Exetrius If you have the courage to compile them, it would be really useful! I also noticed only this morning that the braided bun in medium nougat is now available on B&P for a rather low price. Nice surprise, as there are very expensive and scarce on BL!

    @derEselausErgste Thank you!
  12. So many great guys in there! I especially like the Medieval-Fantasy Warrior - his torso-leg-armor combo is absolutely perfect. Cavernis and Racha'on from the Divine Beauties would be just next on my podium.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    The photos of new City set 40373 show a recolored teddy bear : probably in medium blue. And there are two of them per set!

    [Custom CMF] Heroes of Mitgardia

    @Zilmrud Thank you very much! @Grover Thank you so much! And, ahem, yes, I do have an unreasonable amount of minifig parts. Ever since I came out of my dark age, I've been amazed at how fine and detailed they are now compared to the ones I played with as a kid! Same with animals and printed elements... @Henjin_Quilones Aaah, should female dwarves grow a beard, or should they not...that may be one of the most serious societal issues faced by modern dwarven communities. @zoth33 Thank you very much!
