  1. Love all three of these! Really ingenious parts usage throughout. My favorite would have to be the Phoenix - those parts feel like they belong together!
  2. It's great to see this story continue - Alrune's mother sounds like a real piece of work! As for the build itself, the parts combos on everyone are great (as usual). I really like the combo used for Evrart - where is that torso from? I also love the burial shroud and the torches open each side of the gate (which I may have mentioned in your "Miscellaneous Historicans" post)!

    [Freebuild] The Museum Thief

    Built for Brickscalibur ("Where's Waldo?" category). The infamous thief Odlaw thought this would be an easy job. Break into Baron Ruprecht's private collection, take as much as he could carry, and leave as quickly as possible. Suddenly he heard the footsteps of an approaching guard. Panicking, he searched for a hiding place somewhere in the collection. Can you find Odlaw? Hint: look for the eyes...

    The Summit

    I love how this turned out! The "flying" rocks look great, and I really like how you constructed the serpent (especially the head - nice parts usage on that lower jaw)! It was a joy to collaborate with you!

    [Freebuild] The Abyss

    @W Navarre Thank you! @Kai NRG Thank you so much! The Mantax head served as the "seed part" - the rest was history! I really appreciate your comment on scale/quality, too. I have a small workspace/parts collection at home, so I used to worry that I could never compare/compete with builders who create these massive MOCs. @Simon_S Thank you! You're close - animals with bones (such as dolphins) have flippers, but animals that lack bones (such as fish, which have cartilage instead) have fins!

    [Freebuild] The White Wyrm

    Built for Brickscalibur (Medieval Micro category) Legend spoke of a massive citadel within Enchanted Isles. Crafted from obsidian, it served as a brutal prison for particularly dangerous inmates. One such inmate was an elderly sorcerer. Worshipping the almighty White Wyrm, he prayed for salvation and a chance to escape from this awful fate. His prayers were answered in a dramatic fashion...
  7. Lovely parts usage on all of these! I especially like the combos used for Josephine von. F and Bertille S. The backgrounds are nothing to scoff at either - I really like how you built the torches behind Alrune!

    [Freebuild] Tree Decorating in Historica

    @W Navarre Thank you! I'm really happy with how she turned out! @Kai NRG Thank you so much! Both of them are really cool pieces (especially the fur collar - I would get more if they weren't so expensive)! @Simon_S Thank you! I've been wanting to use that CMF figure in a MOC for a while now! @Aurore Thank you! I'm glad you like the winter outfit (centaurs have to keep warm too)! I thought the contrast between the rugged Kars and a brightly-colored scarf would be funny!
  9. Lovely figures all around! I love how you depicted Hademar's "half leg". The orphan girl also reminds me that I need to BrickLink those new Friends hair pieces - so much potential with those new molds! That ending has me intrigued - I can't wait to see where this story goes!

    [Freebuild] The Abyss

    Built for Brickscalibur (Labor of Love category) as part of a collab with @Sympatik Brick One beautiful summer morning on the coast, a man named Nemyk (wanting to beat the “morning rush”) went down to his favorite fishing spot. What he found instead was a basking mermaid named Lorena, who wanted to take advantage of the first rays of the sun while out of the sight of “land dwellers”. Both caught off guard, the two engaged in some awkward small talk before parting ways. As fate would have it, the two would encounter each other again the following morning, and the morning after that, and so on. Gradually warming to each other, the two poured out their hearts, and (after a few months) were deeply in love. On the anniversary of their meeting, both decided to surprise each other with a gift. Nemyk sought a rare flower that was only found deep within the inhospitable Rakath mountains, while Lorena sought a crystal in the cold abyss of the ocean. Neither were prepared for the dangers that awaited them… Here's @Sympatik Brick's half of the collab! About the Giant Valyrian Anglerfish: Additional Images: Brickscalibur has just reached its epic conclusion, and it's time for me to start posting my entries. This was my first-ever collaboration, and it was an absolute blast! Best of luck to all of you who submitted entries!
  11. Great work! I figured that falcon would show up in a GoH MOC soon enough - I love the NPU for the lure as well! I love the codex entries too - they're great for world building! I second what Frike said - you have a very recognizable style. It's been cool to see it develop over the years!

    Norscan Mammoth

    Some great techniques all around! I particularly like how you did the mammoth eyes, ears, and the fungi on the side of the tree.
  13. Around the time of the Winter Solstice, many in Historica's cooler regions will decorate pine and fir trees with a star and various ornaments. Ayra and Kars (wearing a scarf knitted by Ayra's mother) plan to continue that tradition, with Ayra rearing up to top the tree with a star. No ladders needed - only balance (something Ayra is struggling with). Meanwhile, Gerard is savoring his mulled wine, and Cobold is trying his hand at a snowman, all while a rabbit bounds outs of the snow! What a year this was - I slapped this MOC together for Christmas. I know its a day late, but there are people around the world (including my relatives in Austria) who are celebrating St. Stephen's Day (Stephanitag) or Boxing Day. So it's technically not late! None of the characters had any major changes, except for Ayra. I really like how her winter attire turned out, especially with the fur collar and leg bindings. This has been a great year. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and I look forward to seeing what the New Year brings!

    Celebrating Guilds of Historica, final contest!

    I was only planning on doing the chariot - no battle scenes from me! By the way, I'm currently building entries for BricksCalibur. Would it be ok to "double dip" and use my Frozen Wilds category entry for this contest's "Miscellaneous" Category?
