    Trade MRCA Deadline October 27

    Please take your sweet time Life has been so hectic lately I haven't even had a chance to look at my bricks the last 6 weeks.
  2. Thanks for putting on such a fun Challenge! I had a blast building for it. Now to brush up on my microbuilding skills...
  3. You're welcome, it was a fun experience and a welcome change in building scenery. That's what I was going for.....Sea Rats will be.....Sea Rats. Many don't care who they steal from, as long as they come out ahead . Best friends for hire, and equal opportunity thieves! Thank you. Had to add a little bit of debauchery to the build, befitting a man with "flexible" morals and convictions....and who knows, I may continue the story of Young Jaime and his antics in Mesabi Landing.
  4. 26 October, 620 Infero Pordejon You could almost feel the excitement in the air, like an electrical charge. Today was the day. Training was over, and The Black Wolf Company Expeditionary Forces were being deployed! Months of drilling and training exercises behind them, it was finally time to go to war. A busy scene unfolded on the small estuary on which they descended. The soldiers carried their boats from their camp in the jungle down to the beach. A short trip along the coastline to Charlatan Bay was ordered, where they were to await the arrival of their transport vessels. Then on to Terraversa! The young men in the group were almost jumping with excitement at the thought of battle and war, but the older and more experienced men knew the dangers and possibilities that lie ahead. But regardless of their outlook, all the men were eager to finally put the training behind them, and show their worth. Carrying the boats down from the jungle was no easy task Colonel Lindstrom and his officer discuss their plans for the journey with their Oleonaise liaison one last time before departure. The contract has been signed and sealed, and all that is left is the journey to Terraversa. To be used to raise two Companies of Infantry out of Charlatan Bay.

  6. As the youngest and newest member of the crew about the Nymeria, young Jaime had the pleasure of doing all the unwanted tasks aboard the ship, left by the more senior crew. When he heard the Nymeria was headed to Mesabi Landing to trade, he knew this was his chance, and secretly began preparations, stowing small parts of cargo away to keep for himself to sell. Once the ship docked, and the cargo was unloaded (and his stolen portion quietly offloaded elsewhere), he finally got his permission to see the town. He turned back to the crew, gave them a smile and said "I hope you all get eaten by Dolphins" then disappeared into the crowd. When the time had come for the Nymeria to disembark, he was nowhere to be found, and a good thing too, the Crew would have strung him up if they could find him, for stealing part of the cargo and taking a significant chunk out of their profits. Meanwhile, young Jaime was living the dream. He sold his goods, and was hidden out in the Sunken District of the city, and procured a small shanty away from prying eyes. He holed up there until he knew the Nymeria had left the port, and any danger to him was gone. To pass the time, he relied on every Sea Rat's favorite go-to.....rum and pleasurable company. And with coin in his pocket, neither were in short supply (for now). Who knows what the future holds for Jaime, but that is not something young Sea Rats generally think about, at least while they still have coin To be licensed as a small residence in Mesabi Landing, as the result of the chance roll for docking at the port.

    Thank you! I definitely tried to give each table a unique flair and character to set it apart from the others. Thank you for the kind words! Thank you! That waitress with the beer was one of the first ones I had in mind when designing the scene. Even here in America, that's one of the biggest Oktoberfest visuals you will see. And thanks, I think the instruments are my favorite part as well. Thank you!

    a PERFECT addition. I love the sleeping pirate that lost his pants the best

    Thank you. I worked hard to spread out the design, and as well as not build everything at right angles to each other. And the stage was probably one of the harder bits to do....just building it digitally and getting it to hang off the end and extend to the rest of the base smoothly, was a challenge. And yeah.....not sure about the redcoats, 2 of the 3 at the table appear to be almost gone (plus the other one fighting ). And yes, with minifig posing, I had initially built them off to the side of the base, then tried to move and pose them on the build. Learned pretty quick its easier to just build the minifig piece by piece in the location you want them in. For the tuba, I used Google to get ideas (same with my accordion), and borrowed most of my design from this one here. I did change a few things, for a more fluid design, and also for posing purposes.

    Thank you gentlemen, I appreciate the kind words! __________________________________________________ ALL detail shots are rendered and added to the first post!
  11. Those fall colors are glorious! And I love how the construction of the building is split between stone and wood.

    Thank you Capt.! I tried to recreate your building style best I could, while throwing in my own little flare. I think I spent more time on creating and posing minifigs, than the whole rest of the build. It takes FOREVER, and each one was created from scratch in place. Not sure I ever want to digitally build this many again LOL. Thank you! Thanks! There are a lot of little details I tried to add, that often can be overlooked. Hopefully the more detailed shots I'm rendering will highlight those a bit more.
  13. My entry is up! To be licensed as a large artisan.
  14. Welcome to the Punto Sur Biergarten, the location of choice for all your Oktoberfest celebrations. Drinks, food, music.....we have it all! Come in, sit down, grab a pint with your mates, and partake in all the mouthwatering morsels our kitchen prepares. Steak, brätwurst, turkey legs, laugenbrezeln, biscuits...all of our food is prepared by our owners (the Schroeder family). And to wet your whistle, we pour only the finest brews and beverages from throughout the New Haven Sea, highlighted by our home-brewed keg of Dastardly Dirk's Doppelbock. For entertainment, our very own band Das Tuba commands the stage, performing some of their hit songs "Punto Sur State of Mind", "Tubaback", and "Twilight of the Beer Gods". Set aside your worries, grievances, faction rivalries (unless someone insults your mother, then fisticuffs are permitted....as appears to be the case between a few inebriated soldiers ). Enjoy the company of friends and strangers alike, stuff your bellies, drink 'til you can't see straight, plan your next move on Terraversa, and enjoy this glorious Oktoberfest season. Once you enter our gates, you'll never want to leave!

Also, a hook makes for a great sausage utensil over the hot grill To be Licensed as a Large Artisan in Punto Sur. ____________________________________________________________ I did not plan on doing a digital build for the Oktoberfest challenge, but at the beginning of the month, I started a new job, and for my first two weeks I am training at a location a few hours from home, so I am away from my bricks. However, being away from home with nothing but work occupying my day, I have plenty of time to mess around on Stud.io, so I decided to go all in for the contest. I did my best to capture the colors and style set by @Capt Wolf in his trading post build, while incorporating both classic and modern Pirates elements. I also threw in some Oktoberfest flair (at least what Google tells me its looks like, don't hang me if its wrong ), and a variety of characters seen in the BoBS universe. I spent waaaayyyy too much time on this, but it was a blast creating the scene, and a challenge to translate some techniques to digital building. Enjoy!
  15. The Black Wolf company has taken delivery of its newest ship, the Class 2 cutter Akela. From the shipyards in Tortuga, the Akela was built courtesy of @Professor Thaum and the license was gifted courtesy of @NOD (thanks to both of them). Like its counterpart the Nymeria, the Akela is a small cargo and trading vessel that relies on its speed and maneuverability to outrun any potential aggressors.
