    My entry for CDC2 Category 1: Populating Historica Kaliphlin Kaliphlin merchant Trade is the lifeblood of Kaliphlin, and the merchants are the true masters of the southern realm. Khel'Zarim battlemage Warden of the eternal flames burning in castle Zar, high up in the Rakath mountains. What she doesn’t know about fire is probably not worth knowing. Barqan astrologer The city of Barqa is a center of glass making in Historica, and subsequently its stargazers have access to some of the best telescopes in the known world. Many celestial objects have been discovered and named by these scholars, and even more has been written about the supposed influence on the events of Historica by these heavenly denizens. Petraean swordsman A soldier loyal to the Kaliphlin High Council. As important as the trade itself are the guardians of the trade routes. Avalonia Elven ranger Only seen when they want to be noticed, the elven rangers are keeping intruders and the more sinister beings of the forests in check. Satyr axeman The satyrs are usually a jovial and peaceful folk, who prefer a good evening of dance to the tune of flutes and drums under ancient trees in the forests of Avalonia to adventure or violence. However, don’t underestimate them when they, however reluctantly, have applied war paint on their faces... Antyrian guardsman A true Avalonian warrior. Fierce in combat, loves to hug his town’s hallowed trees and probably wears tights under his chainmail. Mitgardia Husfrue This lady is the wife of a minor Mitgardian jarl, and a former shieldmaiden. While her husband might be in charge of the jarldom, she is definitely the one in charge of the household. The keys to the longhouse are hers, and whenever the men are off to war the thralls of the estate know better than to be lazy… Minotaur geologist The mountains of Mitgardia are hiding many veins of valuable minerals, but only the most hardy geologists can endure to search for them. Be sure however that whenever a rich vein is discovered, dwarven miners are swift to start digging there...if they haven’t already done so from below. Algus warrior Far north of any lands habitable to warm-blooded beings, these frigid creatures thrive. From time to time packs of Algus venture south, causing havoc to the lands of Historica. Last time however, they were thwarted by the searing flames produced by burning black oil from Kaliphlin. Nocturnus Herbalist Many exotic plants thrive in the Moruth Swamplands, and some even dare to harvest them. When harvesting the seeds of some of the more rare carnivorous plants, the herbalist does best to imitate being a plant himself to not be the one harvested for nutrition. Werewolf bounty hunter You would not want to be on this lycanthrope’s hit list... Cyclops matriarch The cyclops tribes of Nocturnus often have strong female leaders. The matriarch is skilled in making various concoctions, to heal friends or poison foes, as well as herself pick up a weapon to fight neighboring tribes or intruding Avalonian adventurers. Varlyrio Illyrian lawyer This counselor knows all the paragraphs, precedent and loopholes of Varlyrian law and can for a suitable sum of gold twist it to any outcome for his client. Adventurer The ancient caves of the island of Varlyrio hide many secrets and riches, and many young noblemen set out to discover these. Rego palace guard Guarding one of the palaces of the Rego is probably the most honorable duty a Varlyrian soldier can have. A peculiar property of Varlyrian armor is that it is usually thicker on its back side. (Thanks @Ecclesiastes for extending the deadline, although it took me until the last day to put an entry together anyway )

    Thanks for quite a few good laughs
  6. Wow! Just wow! You’ve really managed to capture the feeling of an immense arena, clever use of the perspective in the panning. This is also fitting perfectly in how I imagine Kaliphlin, with kind of Roman moral values where people are enjoying blood sports and rulers/wealthy patrons can buy the appreciation of the people by arranging these kind of games

    Nice collection of figs! Seems like you are rebuilding a sizeable collection of fig parts again
  8. Great collection of figures and overall great theme! Nice to see the other 99,6 % of Historica than the lords and heroes get their own CMF series
  9. Absolutely lovely build! I think this style and lore fits perfectly in the Rakath area of eastern Kaliphlin
  10. Fantastic figs, all of them! Great choice to use a common theme and I also like the guild backgrounds

    Free Build: Petraean Alley

    Nice detailed build and that optical illusion is top notch! Good choice to have a colorful door being visible only in the reflection

    [MOC] The streets of Barqa

    Perfect Kaliphlin atmospehere! I'm always fond of well-photographed "all-LEGO" shots Great also to see the City of Barqa continue to be fleshed out (Always on the lookout for more HSS categories to include in Barqa btw, I'm probably looking too hard but am I seeing a cloth merchant...? )

    It's not so often that medieval MOCs are this...medieval I think you've done a great work in illustrating and describing some very plausible Historican punishments! Great job with the nice clean background and crisp photos too. I do howeer agree with the comment about the lighting, maybe some additional diffuse light or reflectors to add more lighting on the front of the object would have made the presentation "pop" better. There are tons of good tutorials out there on (also budget-friendly) setups for product photography (which MOC photography essentially is).
