    [OL - FB] Smith's Smithy

    I'll echo what has been said here: the gives a wonderful overview of the smithing business. The roof is a rather unique variety which I haven't seen too often in MOCs. I love the inclusion of the small warehouse you did with all of the finished products. Nice touch.

    [OL - FB] Return to the Tyree'dee

    I like the fence you did and the figures of the Tyree'dee. The idol in the second picture is also pretty great, considering you made it with "spare" parts. I'm also quite jealous of the state of your Islander pieces. My shields look all yellowed and the Kahuna masks are pretty dusty from having been excessively played with during my younger years .
  3. Thanks everyone! We'll see how well these guys will hold up against the rampant Lotii!
  4. Impressive column of soldiers. I like how you use the old and new torsos to differentiate between army ranks.

    [COR-FB] El Oleonda, again

    I love the buildup of the small cliff with the colors going from dark tan to brown to green. Also, I've said it before, but I really like the quality of print on that flag.

    [COR-FB] Land Ho!

    Wow, that is a neat trick. I thought you had Photoshopped the two images together. The cropped picture is indeed more immersive. Too bad about the soldier on the right though. Man overboard!
  7. Oléon welcomes all who pledge their loyalty to the crown with open arms. No need to oppress those who seek Oléonese protection willingly. Also, there is no oppression in the Kingdom of Light. I can assure you: the sack is 100% Oléonese-made. No Eslandolan imports here . To clarify the bare feet: these are inspired by a mashup of several different types of 18th/early 19th (South East) Asian colonial infantry. I found it interesting that on many pictures or drawings I found, the soldiers were often bare feet, so I decided to keep that characteristic to set them apart from "regular western" infantry. So yes, they are definitely meant to be shorts like @evancelt already said. Check some inspiration below. The images on the right were used for the tirailleurs Jiangkainois, which have yet to be featured. But even there, you can see some people bare footed and with shorter pants. Thanks! Yes, the vegetation is indeed a good trick to make it seem larger and add an extra splash of color to everything.
  8. Unit name: Armée de l'Orient Type: Line infantry Uniform description: Standard blue coat, black jingasa helmet, short blue pantaloons Equipment description: Standard musket, backpack, sometimes traditional Lotii blades are also carried into combat Recruitment center: Jiangkai, El Oleonda Unit history and description: After the incorporation of the Jiangkai territory into the Oléonese empire, the government was eagerly looking for measures to uphold the security of its newly acquired territory and defend it from the prying hands of the defeated Lotus Empire. The regular army of Oléon already stretched thin throughout multiple campaigns and theaters of war, the administration was quick to grant the permission to levy locally raised forces, consisting of Lotii colonials pledging their loyalty to the Kingdom of Light. Donning the blues of the Oléonese army, they serve as line infantry ready to defend hearth and home. Trained in similar ways to regular Oléonese infantry, their level of capability is on par with other units of the Oléonese army. Campaigns: Motto: More about the unit:
  9. After the incorporation of the Jiangkai territory into the Oléonese empire, the government was eagerly looking for measures to uphold the security of its newly acquired territory and defend it from the prying hands of the defeated Lotus Empire. The regular army of Oléon already stretched thin throughout multiple campaigns and theaters of war, the administration was quick to grant the permission to levy locally raised forces, consisting of Lotii colonials pledging their loyalty to the Kingdom of Light. Proud to now be part of a modern, mighty Madrician Empire that had defeated their Lotii masters, a plethora of Jiangkai colonials was excited to don the blue uniform of Oléon and defend their homes from their former overlords. Easily recognizable by the black metal jingasa hat and wide, short pantaloons these men wear, they now patrol the streets of Jiangkai to ensure the safety of its citizens and keep roving bands of Lotii soldiers out. However, they are not the only ones found patrolling the streets of Oléon's 'Pearl of the East'. Small groups of youngsters in Madrician dress roam around as well, katana in hand - members of Jiangkai's 'River Dragon Society'. These are young noblemen and sword masters, having studied at famous sword schools paid for by their rich families. Their are the progeny of Jiangkai's pro-Western nobility who have brokered the deal between Jiangkai and Oléon, pledging the city's allegiance to Oléon and renouncing the Lotus Empire. They see the Lotus Empire as outdated, stuck in the old ways of nepotism and backwardness and believe modernization is the key for increased strength. During Lotus rule in Jiangkai, they were minor nobles whose voices were silenced by the traditionalist aristocracy, but the events of the war on El Oleonda turned their fortune around. Now they have ousted most of the old ruling class and steer Jiangkai towards a modern and stronger future, under the watchful eye and guidance of Oléon. The true purpose of the River Dragon Society is still somewhat clouded, save for the truly initiated. Some claim they want to "free" the other Lotii colonies on El Oleonda and mould them according to their own vision, merging Madrician modernity with Lotii culture and traditions and form their own nation. For now, however, their goals seem to align with those of Oléonese interests. The strive for modernization and westernization proposed by the River Dragon Society should not be mistaken for neglect of the own culture. The Society is virulently anti-Faith and sees its encroachment in Jiangkai as a contamination of pure Lotii culture, which they seek to prevent. Lotii culture should be kept and respected, yet strengthened with modern technology and insights. This curious clash of ideas also manifests in the streets of Jiangkai were people wearing traditional clothes are seen alongside others wearing Madrician dress. Where modern troops march past beggar monks, seeking to achieve enlightenment - just like the Nirvan Emmet once did - living solely on what passersby gift them. Extra top shot: Way more text than there is an actual build . In any case, this serves as a Troop Raise for Jiangkai.

    [COR-FB] Land Ho!

    Nice! The angles are perhaps a bit sharp or not round enough, but it doesn't really detract from the overall great quality of the build. Plenty of details to look at and very crisp photography! The staging of the minifigures is excellent, as is the forced perspective in the first picture. At first I thought you'd used Duplo there, but it seems to be regular Lego after all. Too bad you can see the "end" of the ship in first picture, but that's nitpicking. It might've been a tad bit more immersive if you found a way to not show that the build ends there. But like I said, I'm just grasping at straws here and nitpicking over a really beautiful MOC!
  11. A bit sooner than I expected, but here's some more pictures of the rickshaw without figs. The black is difficult to photograph, but I think everything's clear enough to make out the different parts. If you add another pair of skeleton arms and perhaps some custom cut fabric, I think it's possible to make a foldable hood that can actually cover the occupant. Thanks! The colors are a favorite part for me too. Glad you like it.
  12. Lovely house and color scheme. It reminds me of the bayou houses in Red Dead Redemption 2. Very befitting of Nouveau Oleandia!
  13. That's a nice tudor farm house. I like the contrast of the red brick chimney and the rest of the house. The style of roof on the stable is also something different from a usual roof, with the slight overhang at the front. Nice addition to the settlement.
  14. Quoting blackdeathgr on this, because he summed up my thoughts exactly. It is truly a work of art you've built. There's stuff everywhere to check out and you've simply nailed the medieval feeling of a city. Amazing!

    [R6 - Ossus - SCS] Tracking Relics

    GORGEOUS! I saw it on Flickr and I just knew I had to check out the full MOC on EB. Everything about this is soooo good! The build itself, with the different modules fitting together so well and just the general shaping of it. Great SNOT and piece usage throughout. But like the others have stated, the presentation is top notch as well. So much to look at here. With tanks like these, one would wonder why the Empire even bothered to build walkers in the first place.
