  1. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XVChapter XVIChapter XVIIChapter XVIII Chapter XIX Chapter XX Chapter XXI Chapter XXII (you are here) Meanwhile (in case you’ve forgotten, I mean, while Eslandola in general and certain individual people in particular were in despair at the loss of Captain Argentum) Captain Edward Argentum was not particularly enjoying himself either. To be continued... I've always liked these tread pieces, this was a fun use to find for them. It's a bit flimsy for sure. But not more flimsy than everything else in this vig. Also fun to use the turquoise underwater stuff. New appreciation for those, they're actually really cool. Thanks to those of you who are sticking with the Captain in his adventures. Will the sharks get him at last or with Edward Argentum cheat death again??
  2. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XVChapter XVIChapter XVIIChapter XVIII Chapter XIX Chapter XX Chapter XXI (you are here) Chapter XXII As the daughter of a Terraversan General, Lady Cora had learned many things--such as climbing trees--which few of her acquaintances would have suspected her of. Though famous mostly for her ability to faint on the slightest provocation, she was quite competent as a navigator--at least, she knew all that the books said. Of course she hadn’t much practical experience. Did that deter her? Not her! Disguised as a pirate, she prepared to do a little scouring of the seas on her own account. To be continued... This is a wave technique I've wanted to try for a while now, it's pretty fun! The boat design is new too, though of course it borrows from the sideways designs of some of my microscale ships. C&C welcome!
  3. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XVChapter XVIChapter XVIIChapter XVIII Chapter XIX Chapter XX (you are here) Chapter XXI Lady Cora read “Lost at Sea” by Captain Argentum’s name in the paper and fainted. When she came to she went and climbed a tree, since that was a place where no one would look for her and she could decide on a course of action without fear of interruption. To be continued... All right, needless to say I didn't build this whole scene just so Lady Cora could meditate in a tree... It was part of a Summer Joust collaboration. But, there were lots of trees and this was my plan for the next "vignette" anyway. I regret how little of the roof you can see in the main pictures. There's a lot of intricate stuff going on to get those As! This kind of waterwheel scene has been on my to-build list for quite a while, and it turned out very close to how I was envisioning it. There are a whole ton of leaves in this scene and the layout is a little funny in order to get that bend in the river--there are some behind the scenes shots on my blog. I also tried out a new (I think?) technique for the tree trunks. I wanted to get the effect of knots with those round upside down donut tiles. I think it did a fairly good job of breaking up the square trunk, but I'd be glad to hear second opinions on that! The next chapter will go back to the vignettes to show what it is that Lady Cora decided to do... C&C welcome!
  4. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XV Chapter XVI Chapter XVII (you are here) Chapter XVIII After 10 months of paperwork and 10 days of rowing in the bay, the regretful conclusion was officially arrived at: Commodore Edward Argentum, Lost at Sea. In his honor, royalist Eslandians (all four of them) gathered in the capital to burn the Corry flag and wave nightcaps (the official symbol of King Fernando). So this was mostly a fun excuse to use that wild red plume and to show off my nightcaps. I couldn't find a happy medium between building a whole town square and this, so after letting it gather a few weeks of dust I took pictures of it. The next vignette will make up for it. Thanks for looking, hope you're enjoying the Captain's continued adventures...
  5. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XVChapter XVIChapter XVIIChapter XVIII Chapter XIX (you are here) Chapter XX When news of Edward Argentum’s untimely demise reached Corrington it immediately worked its way into a nursery rhyme: Rock a-bye baby, Safe in your crib, Captain Argentum can’t get you; He’s dead! Okay, so I obviously was having way too much fun with these "reaction" builds. I enjoyed trying a new floor pattern out. My limited quantity of gold grill tiles made the footprint of this vignette fairly small, but I still was ambitious enough to get an all LEGO shot out of it. I'm making up for burning the Corry flag a couple builds ago by having a micro version on the wall here. I hope you're still enjoying the Captain's story, it is drawing gradually to a close, I promise. C&C welcome!
  6. Chapter IChapter IIChapter IIIChapter IVChapter V Chapter VI Chapter VII Chapter VIII Chapter IX Chapter X Chapter XI Chapter XII Chapter XIII Chapter XIV Chapter XVChapter XVI Chapter XVII Chapter XVIII (you are here) Chapter XIV King Fernando’s expression of sorrow at the news of Commodore Argentum’s tragic passing was particularly touching. “Never more!” he sobbed, “never more shall I find so true a friend, so sincere a sympathizer in my sorrows, or one who so consistently replenished my supply of nightcaps!” So, this is kind of what I was trying to do with that terribly lame Chapter XVI, in terms of using the black flower pieces. A bed turned out much nicer than a rug, and I was able to use a couple of spares for the king's pillow and night table cloth. The pillars were also fun to work out, I really like the design but unfortunately, even with the help of my two brothers, four of those dark grey sloping things was all I was able to pull together. So I probably won't get to use the design in a larger scene anytime soon! Another thing that was fun was the micro version of Captain Argentum. C&C welcome!
