    [CH V Cat E] Easy Come, Easy Go

    [to be read aloud and rapidly - like a sports commentator] And here we are again for tonights final round of GoT - that famous "Game of Treasure", our treasure hunt. Well, and there they go on the left, the brave islanders, digging for the treasure, handing over the gold bars... They are working away quickly - but wait, what is that? A Marderian soldier is stealing the gold! They are forcing the natives to work for them! My goodness, there is no end to Marderian evilness. Passing the ingot to the next Marderian player, moving midfield. Steady. And the gold is gone! This came quite unexpectedly for Mardier - pirate Henry was taking a shot here. Excellent move for the pirates. The pirates now in the lead! But no - Mardier is back and more evil than ever. The pirates have lost the gold and it all goes to Mardier again. We all know the Marderian motto: "No need to be nice on the way up 'cos we're not going down" This is exciting, it is the second half in this final game and Mardier has got the gold. Which means Mardier is not broke and will continue in the GoT league in the upcoming season. Well they will surely give Eslandola, Oleon and Corrington a hard time... But again "no" - Mardier is hit from behind by another pirate. And Mardier is going down after a wonderful "thud". I heard a whisper "for Brickwall" - I suspect this guy is one of Brickwall Jones' nephews. And here we are - the pirates are back in the game. Excellent thudding there from Captain Redbeard. The higher they come, the hardier they fall in Mardier. What is this? There must be some disagreement within the pirate team? One of them is pretty tied up at the moment. Has he been double crossed by one of his red-bearded mates? No, Eslandola is back and they are striking with a vengeance! They are sweeping the ground from pirates and they have taken the gold! The Eslandolean flag is waving all over the place. And the crowd is cheering! What a great match, tonight. Certainly no disappointment for the international spectators. And on the right I can see Colonel Brickinson. Brickinson is leading his team to victory. Nobody expected the Eslandolean army. They have been using their chief weapon: surprise. Surprise and cleverness. And I wonder where they got the information that brought them here to this secret place just in time for the final moments of the game. The ingots are piling up for Eslandola. So the score is Mardier: 0, Eslandola: 542! Aaaaaaaaand the game is over! A big win for Brickinson's team tonight - and they are celebrating! The champagne is flowing as the gold is being shipped to Pontelli. What a night for Eslandola. That is it for Mardier. They are broke and won't be able to afford the license for the next season. I can see the debt collectors gathering at the side of the field and the first vultures have started to circle in ...

    Tiptoe Through The Wheat Field

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter Captain Cookie continued: "So, of course, the Corrington troops were alarmed and set out to catch the highwayman." "Did they succeed", Lady De Summer asked. "Initially very much so. They were able to track him down and chase him into a wheat field..." Sergeant Salt and his men were confident. They would find that evil robbing highwayman. The field was practically surrounded, there was not escape. Sergeant Salt ordered his men to comb through the field. Farmer Giles, however, was furious. He had not seen such outrageous vandalism in his whole life! The farmer cursed the soldiers and maybe this was the reason why they did not catch the highwayman. The highwayman seemed to have disappeared, vanished into thin air. The soldiers searched and searched until nightfall and then returned to their barracks ...

    Too Much Monkey Business

    The tension was rising in the court room of Pontelli. Judge Enrico Fineman was under stress. He had not expected a trial against the Mayor of Pontelli, Alberto da Pontelli. The prosecutress, Lady Asma April, was just closing her plea: "This monkey business that is going on is just unbelievable. This man is a member of the Eslandolean Parliamant - and what is the first thing he does? He brings his monkey to the Hall of Eslandola! What a disgrace! I ask you: Does this man have no honour in himself? Does he think he can make a fool of Eslandola? That he can subject Pontelli to ridicule?" "Do you think that a man like Alberto should continue to be a member of the Parliament? I very much doubt so!" Alberto had never felt so bad in his whole life. Now this strange woman was after him, after he had done so much for Pontelli and Eslandola. Lady April had finished her plea. Judge Enrico Fineman cleared his throat to announce the verdict: "Alberto da Pontelli. The court wants you to retire as a member of the Eslandolean Parliament. Will you accept the verdict." "Yes, I will", Alberto replied quietly. "That is not enough", Lady April shouted, "he also has to step down from his position as Mayor!" Judge Fineman hesitated for a moment: "Alberto, will you also step down from your role as Mayor of Pontelli?" "Yes, I will", Alberto replied quietly. The Judge looked at Lady Asma: "But who will be the leader of our city?" "I will", Lady April coldly returned. "And I will make Pontelli proud again!" The Judge banged his gavel and the court room fell into an uneasy silence. C&C Welcome. To leadership: Please note change in the role of Mayor on Pontelli. This is now Lady Asma April.

    Stand and Deliver

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter "My dear Lady De Summer, there was a highwayman who was operating in Corrington." "Where exactly?" "On Cocovia - between King's Harbour and Quinnsville. He was robbing coaches." "Many coaches?" "Many coaches." "Usually Corrington travellers, but he was also robbing the occasional Oleon vacationist." "And what did he take from his victims?" "That was the interesting part. He never took money or lupines. It seemed that he was looking for something more interesing. Then one day..." "Stand and deliver! You move at your peril, for I have two pistols here." "Please, dear Sir, don't take our gold" "I do not want your gold" "Please, good man, do not take our lupines." "I am not interested in lupines". "Then... what do you want from us." "The ship." "What ship?" Lady De Summer asked. "A yellow model of the 8 Provinces." "Yellow? But your model is reddish." "Quite so, Mylady. You will understand soon. Let me go on with the story." [End of Chapter 1] C&C Welcome. (Original pictures can be found on flickr.)

    CH V Cat D Fish: Catching Tuna

    "I got it", cried the Garvian privateer. "Steady", shouted the other. "It is mine. I have caught it first", yelled the Marderian fisherman. All of them were pretty ignorant of the large wave that was approaching the two vessels rapidly ... It was a huge wave indeed... This is my "just in time" entry for this category I think I got everything covered: 2 vessels (brick built), fish (brick built), wave (brick built). C&C welcome! (more and larger pictures can be found on flickr)
  6. The Hall of Eslandola is the place to be. Important things are being debated and discussed. Strange things happen after the humans have left.. C&C welcome - and pictures are on flickr too.
  7. The Cuboid Castle that Samuel Marron has visited is probably worth a few additional pictures It was probably not my best idea to shoot a grey castle against a grey background... This is where Samuel Marron goes to seek for further support in the battle agains Ravaage. Inspired by La Sagrada Familia I had build two differently coloured glass windows. one blueish - one reddish C&C Welcome, pictures to be found on my flickr album.

    Captain Cookie's Delight

    [The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude] "Well, thanks for bringing me that exquisite Norwegian Blue. I cannot say how happy I am to be in the possession of such a fine parrot. My previous one has gone to meet its maker. How can I return your favour, Lady De Summer?" "My dear Captain, a good story would do. How, for instance, did you acquire your new ship?" "The Delight?" "Yes, Captain." "Well, Mylady, you might remember that infamous poker night in the Red Herring." "You mean the night, when that strange Marquis from Olean won such a lot of gold? I have heard rumours about that. Some people said something about the true identity of the Marquis. Like that he was actually from Mardier." "Well, it was a fantastic night because after he had won so much I challenged the Marquis for a final round..." "... it was tough. The Marquis had three of a kind - but I beat him with a full house. And as I had already won all of his gold, he offered me his ship. He said, she would be a fine, seaworthy lady, she would just need some minor repairs of the sails." "And I thought 'never look a gift horse in the mouth'." "This ship is making me immensly proud. Every detail is golden." "And the cabin is impressive too", Lady De Summer replied. "And so I named her 'Cookie's Delight'" "Fabulous, fabulous. I have another question, my dear Captain." "Out with it!" "This model of a reddish ship..." "The 8 Provinces?" "Yes, Captain, where and how did you get it?" "Oh, Mylady, that is a longer story. And more exciting." "I am all ears." [End of prelude] I am starting a new storyline here. And I managed to turn the "Silent Mary" into something more operable... C&C welcome!
  9. Did you know that there is a regular apple transport ship going from Pontelli to Nova Terelli? For reasons unbeknownst monkeys have never shown any interest in the ship and the load she carries.
  10. Captain Braunsfeld


    Horror, fear and loathing in Nova Terreli! A nighmarish naval beast has attacked the Eslandolean coast line, destroyed ships and a coastal battery. The citizens of Nova Terreli are in shock... Be prepared for a terrible story of unnecessary violence and bloodshed. Behold Karl Kraken with his latest prize (slightly damaged). I hope I got the challenge conditions right. I was confused about which side to depict. So, if you want me to show an attack on Mardier instead, I will swap the uniform bricks (using orange): More/larger pictures on my flickr account.
  11. Sorry about that title. I would like to present the first part of an Eslandola plantation collaboration of Garmadon & Captain Braunsfeld: The EWTC Oat Planation of Pontelli. If you look carefully you might spy some strange characters: ... strange transporting activities ... .. birds that need to be fed... .. and sometimes, trees are growing overnight: Size of this grand EWTC plantation part: 64 x 64. C&C Welcome. Over to Garmadon.
  12. The Desert King had come to inspect the progress of his latest war machine: The Trojan Camel (named after its inventor Abdul Trojan). Unfortunately this incredible piece of military hardware had not been 100% completed by the time of the inspection. Excellent craftsmen from Mitgardia and Kaliphlin were working together to complete the Camel. An aerial view of the construction site: This is the Trojan Camel: And another view to show the landscape: C&C welcome!
  13. It was a bright day and the sun was beating down on the streets of Kings Port. Inside the governor's hall the temperature and the mood was much milder. Admiral van Draumen had found the courage to propose to her - Princess Vinapptshitshi of Mardier, King Alphonso's beloved daughter. As he kneeled down before her she gladly answered his beaming smile - and his proposal by a softly whispered "yes". Van Draumen had backed his proposal with a show-off of his riches, but it seemed that the princess cared more for him than for his money. Which was good, as van Draumen did not expect the King to approve of this marriage. Troubled times lay ahead, but this was not the time to worry. This was a day to celebrate C&C Welcome.
  14. Shortly before heading off to the docks of Pontelli to check out a new small armed sloop while waiting for his first mate to return from Eslandola's Old World capital of Terelli... Captain Whiffo strode up and down the porch in ecstacy, gazing out across the large, verdant plantation now covered with ready-to-harvest oats. The workers scurrying hither and yon (under the watchful eyes of their monkey supervisors which Mayor da Pontelli had provided, of course) were an absolute pleasure to behold. The East Trade Wind Company had finally taken the large step he had meditated so long, and in no time it would assuredly be as large, powerful, and rich in the new world as it ever was in the old! (One of the monkey supervisors on his courier:) Wheels rattled along the road and the Captain looked up intelligently, if not mysteriously (mostly, you see, because he loved mystery, not because there was any real mystery in the whole affair). For once he was not carrying his beloved cutlass, as he was not sure but that it would get in the way while showing de Chauncourtois' niece about the house and new plantation which she had come out to see (though he was sorely inclined to regret leaving it behind as its clanking was the only thing missing - he thought - to perfect the sensation of mysteriousness) - but he might as well as have spared his pains, for he could have known from previous experience that his cutlass and his habit of rapping it on his hook and smashing it into everything was a constant source of amusement to de Chauncourtois' good-humored niece. The carriage rolled to a stop just before the door - and Captain Whiffo, throwing the cutlass with an effort out of his mind (for the present), bowed slightly and offered her his hand. "Good day, miss, shall I show you inside?" ...Speaking of which! - Let's go inside, shall we? Originally I had only been planning on the hinging wall, but in the end, the roof was detachable as well, so thankfully the interior was very easy to take pictures of! It is furnished with a large kitchen, Some furniture... An instrument - And a good-sized (if not over-sized ) fireplace: A few closeups: The pig-pen (the colors of which were inspired especially by Ayrlego's recent challenge entry, along with the rest of that collab)... And a final overview: And, I've finally finished! Just about ever since the launch of the Brethren of the Brick Seas I've been meaning to build a large plantation for the ETWC, but only recently have I been able to actually get around to planning and building it. Here's my section of the collab with Captain Braunsfeld (be sure to check out his excellent section here) for Eslandola's East Trade Wind Company. It took a great deal longer than I was hoping for (mostly due to RL), but I'm rather happy with how it turned out, and it was definitely fun (and somewhat challenging at times) to attempt to make it clearly part of the same plantation and yet give it my own touch (well, I suppose that last part came pretty naturally! ) Special thanks to Captain B for working on this collab and waiting very patiently for my side here to be complete! Credit goes to Gideon for the door design and to Legopard for the chair (slightly altered here), and the carriage is a modification of the one found in LEGO's excellent POTC London Chase. Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!
  15. The moonlit night was cold and icy. His horse had been shot underneath him and so he was carrying on through the snowy night. But wait: there was a shadow before him, surely one of his enemies. He readied his double-axe, preparing for battle. He did not see the other warrior, standing on higher ground... Some more shots to illustrate the scene: This picture gives a better view of the footsteps in the snow: C&C welcome! ...................................................................................................................................................................... It has occurred to me that I need to depict the late horse too. However, this seems to kill the mood of the scene...

    [MRCA] A Drastic Change of Mood

    Happy times seem to be over for Eslandola. And due to the recent attacks by Mardier the mood of the members of the Eslandolean Council has changed drastically: Something must be done. Way back in happier times, even a painting of the Council had been comissioned: C&C welcome.

    2001 secret revealed

    Humans find a strange obelisk on the Moon: They have no idea where it came from... Now secret footage of what happened a few weeks earlier has been found: C&C Welcome
  18. The "Orange Herring" is a famous tavern... .. and usually quite crowded. Thick smoke from many cigars is blurring the sight - of a poker game. That strange Marquis from Oleon was not much of a talker, but he could play extremely well. The dubloons were soon piling up next to the Marquis. Captain Cookie was watching in amazement... .. while cavern keeper Barry the Bald was eyeing whether a fight was about to break out - or not. Another view without the roof (left top: a lady of the night...) C&C Welcome! (I have not decided yet where the Orange Herring is located. Any suggestions? I might license it right there.) A few more pics and larger versions can be found in the corresponding flickr album.

    Dodo Island

    I'd like to present a piraty island that ArchitectureFan and myself have created: "Dodo Island" was part of the pirate layout @ Brickmania Antwerpen in November. That is one of the Dodos (created by ArchitectureFan). Here are a few more from a WIP shot: I was quite happy with the waterfall: Some strange characters have appeared on the island: The island was huge when built at home (and we were not able to take decent pictures). As part of the pirate layout the island was small (and we were not able to take decent pictures). C&C Welcome! ArchitectureFan & Captain Braunsfeld
  21. The Pontellis are getting ready for the Merrynight celebration. That is Alberto, Natasha and George da Pontelli are exchanging presents, drinking hot spiced wine (one of them is drinking banana juice) and eat the traditional banana cake. And then they will relax by the light of their beautiful Merrynight Cactus: (As you may know, there are no fir trees on Nellisa.) This is an entry to the "Nellisan Merrynight Challenge" - Category B - Celebrations. C&C welcome!

    The Red Hat Gang

    This is my entry to the mini challenge: The gangs of Charlatan Bay. These mean guys mean business: The Red Hat Gang. The boss: Big Red Riding Hood He is usually the one with a plan. His lieutenant: Harold Handbag. In battle, harold is wielding a loaded purse (containing a brick). Iron Carl - the problem solver of the gang. Guitar George - he knows all the chords. As well known amongst role players, bards perform an essential job as they keep up the gang's spirit. That is they sing and dance while the others fight. Dunno why. Must be a strange tradition. Smashed-Bottle Billie - always willing to fight for the right to protect the poor. Don't go looking for them. They'll find you! C&C Welcome!

    [ESL FB] Sandcastles

    .. after all the buckets had been filled the Colonel told his men to build: Sand Castles This is one of the small scenes that took place on "Dodo Island" (which actually seems to be a part of the beach next to Pontelli) "Dodo Island" was presented at Brickmania Antwerpen last month. C&C welcome!
  24. This is my entry for the Mini-Challenge: The Grand Road of Nellisa. "Action on the Road" Somewhere near the Terelli Hills things are going to be heating up very soon. The Corringtonean coach and the Eslandolean coach are facing each other. None of the drivers is willing to give way... the passengers are siding with them. Who will be the first one to steer the coach into the swamp? And what lies ahead? Some people on the side of the road seem to be waiting for their chance... [Build contains 8 minifigs and one monkey] The larger versions of the pictures can be found on flickr C&C welcome! [Number of studs: 48 * 81 = 3888] .
