  1. A fine vessel indeed. As others have commented she has very sleek lines and good details on the deck. The pumps and compass box (I cannot think of the proper name right now) are great details to include. I'm not a big fan of the tan plates under the grating as it doesn't capture the dark interior of the lower decks, but I can also see that using black plates might make it too hard to see the grating. Still, it's a nice boat.

    [BTV1-OL] Loyalists Join the Cause

    Thank you. I'm glad to hear it. The roof is probably my least favorite portion of the build, but I'm glad you like it. And thank you for letting me know about the photos. I generally keep them private until I get the thread up, but I don't know what happened to the first link. Should be better now. Very kind words, Bodi, thank you. You're right, the build was very parts intensive, but I think the effect on the walls especially is worth it. The true traitors are those who defy the gods and the king. Anyway... thank you for the compliment. Thank you very much. I added one more photo (the link was broken), but I don't have any more.

  4. P1130806 by Capt. Genaro, on Flickr The rapid advance of Olean troops caught Terraversa’s defenders by total surprise. With most troops quickly routing in the face of the superior foe this left a pleasant surprise for many. Arsenals with fresh powder, shot, and enough arms to supply whole regiments were left unattended, and it did not take long for the Terraversans to realize this. While most of Oldis’ allies fled from the advancing Oleanders, the loyalists took advantage of this opportunity to quickly arm themselves. Loyalist leaders gave inspiring speeches to the ever growing crowds. Merchants who long suffered Oldis’ oppressive customs officials, farmers whose yield diminished with every increase in taxes, laborers who struggled daily with basic survival while the fruit of their toil was increasingly enjoyed by the archduke and his cronies. It didn’t take much to remind the diverse crowds that things were never this bad under a king. P1130775 by Capt. Genaro, on Flickr And so men lined up, eager to take arms (arms their taxes had paid for). For some it was loyalty to a proper king, a king who ruled with divine right. Others were swayed by a promise to return to laissez faire economics which saw Terraversa thrive. Still some were swayed by revenge (for 20 years of civil war earned Miro Olids quite a few enemies on the island). Man after man strode up to the table, signed his name (or the closest approximation he could make), and grabbed a musket off the rack before marching off to camp where a hot meal and uniform awaited them. Many of the men had never held a musket before, let alone fired one in anger, but the Olean soldiers were not worried. A week’s worth of drill would teach them the basics well enough, and what they lacked in experience they more than made up for with zeal.
  5. Hi Greg. The best place to start is by reading the Quick Start Guide and determining which faction you would like to join. This game takes place during the age of exploration/sail (around 1500-1820 ish), and focuses on trade, exploration/colonization, and warfare. Stories and events are largely player driven with some competitive challenges set forth by the mods. If this seems like something that interests you I would encourage you to design a sigfig and post your introduction in you chosen faction's topic. The rules can be daunting at first, but all factions have great members who would be happy to assist you.

    [BTV1-OL] Preparing the Cannons

    Nice build, Kotz. I like the original cannon design, and the slight protrusion on the stone wall is a great addition, too. I think the terrain could have used a bit more work since right now the front half seems like a largely empty baseplate.

    [BTV1-OL] Kingsport Peekaboo

    Yes, we are committing all troops (including any reinforcements we get from the free builds).

    [OKT-Artisan] Inside the Fest Tent

    So many great things about this build. The use of the sail as a tent, the lively crowd, and the cloth you placed the build on works really well to enhance the overall atmosphere of the build. A very strong entry, and well done.

    [OL-FB] The Sloop "Draco"

    Lovely ship with a great presentation (I bet you didn't build the harbor just for this ship, but it's still a lovely way to present your vessel). As for the ship, the colors are very appropriate for Oleon, and the 4th picture from the bowsprit really captures the shape of a sailing ship. As for a criticism, I am not a fan of the brown plate overhanging the edge of the vessel. It almost looks like a wing of sort, and the aerial view makes it seem out of place. Still, it's a great boat that captures the Lego classic pirate style.

    [BTV1-OL] Infiltration for Tomorrow's Ambush

    I like this build. You really captured the feeling of an isolated jungle river with the vegetation and various animals. I might recommend raising the banks by a few plates or so, but perhaps that's just a stylistic difference. Regardless, well done.

    [BTV1-OL] The bridge on the King's River

    I really enjoyed this build and the accompanying story. That you made three builds to illustrate the evolution of the bridge is very impressive, too. The placing of the various transparent elements in the water to show the disturbance caused by the building is a simple technique, but one you put to excellent use. And finally I would add I appreciate how you used established geography to define this build.

    [COR Intro] Recalled South to Belson

    A nice build to introduce yourself to BOBS. I haven't see too many fall builds which makes your build stand out a bit more. The camp scene is good with a good attention to background details, and I look forward to seeing where Brickleton's adventures take him.

    [BTV1-OL] The Best Kind of Intelligence

    Nice first build, Cap. The foliage around the edge of the road is well done as it captures the look of the jungle trying to reclaim the narrow path. Another piece of advice for the pictures is to use some poster board or butchers paper for the background. This is a cheap and readily available solution to help improve the presentation.

    [BTV1 - OL] The last line of defence

    Those Knights Treasurer are a really nice looking force. The crumbling/damaged stonework is nice, too. Especially the flagstones at the base of the stairs.
