Silver Lords by MWardancer, auf Flickr Silver Lords (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Silver Lord by MWardancer, auf Flickr Archers These versatile archers are the backbone of the Elven army. If they cannot reach you, their arrows surely can. Archers by MWardancer, auf Flickr Archers (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Archer by MWardancer, auf Flickr Archer by MWardancer, auf Flickr Swordmen When the arrows cannot fly, swords will find their place. Swordmen by MWardancer, auf Flickr Iron Watch These heavy foot soldiers patrol the borders of the Elven kingdom, prepared to challenge man and beast with their versatile long spears. Iron Watch by MWardancer, auf Flickr Iron Watch by MWardancer, auf Flickr Iron Watch Commander by MWardancer, auf Flickr Silver Guard Trained for the defense of the realm, these elite guards carry long halberds to keep the enemy at bay. They protect valuable assets or points of strategic value. Silver Guards by MWardancer, auf Flickr Silver Guard by MWardancer, auf Flickr Silver Guard (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sisters of Ex Orcis Even the hardest steel cannot harm intruders that partly exist in higher – or in most cases: lower – plains of reality. For this reason, the Sisters of Ex Orcis have specialized in making arrows from the famous Dragon Glass. Piercing through every thinkable and unthinkable form of ethereal or demonic protection, these elite archers banish supernatural creatures when conventional measures fail. Sisters of Ex Orcis by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sister of Ex Orcis by MWardancer, auf Flickr DESTRO – Deadly Spear Thrower “Griffin” Even though Elves have become one of the world’s leaders in exporting weapons, their own needs should not be forgotten. DESTRO is their tool of choice when normal bows reach their limits. Unlike the MEADS, which wreaks widespread havoc at a very long distance, DESTRO is deployed for medium-ranged precision shots. DESTRO "Griffin" - Deadly Spear Thrower by MWardancer, auf Flickr ELVEREST - Elven Repeating Spear Thrower When the firing rate is of the utmost importance, Elves use the ELVEREST system. Its primary functions include Crowd Control, Infantry Stop and Anti Siege. ELVEREST - Elven Repeating Spear Thrower by MWardancer, auf Flickr ELVEREST - Elven Repeating Spear Thrower (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr ELVEREST - Elven Repeating Spear Thrower (3) by MWardancer, auf Flickr MEADS - Modular Elven All-round Defense System Initially designed as an answer to the proliferation of evil airborne creatures, the MEADS has quickly become a true all-round Elven weapon. It is known as a long-range cavalry killer and effective troll deterrent. The prospect of encountering a sudden rain of bolts reinforced with Elven steel is something even medium-sized dragons frown upon. Due to its modular nature, versions with up to 10 launchers can be built if mobility is not of primary importance. MEADS - Modular Elven Allround Defense System by MWardancer, auf Flickr MEADS - Modular Elven Allround Defense System (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr MEADS - Modular Elven Allround Defense System (3) by MWardancer, auf Flickr MEADS - Modular Elven Allround Defense System (4) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Prince Maerendil on Findelhuv In a traditional Elven anthem it says: “These hooves are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do, yes one day these hooves are gonna walk all over you.” It is horses like Findelhuv they sing about. Some say he crushed his first orcish skull when he was still a foal. Some say he bathed in the Everqueen’s blessed springs. The truth is only known to Prince Maerendil, who has guided his four-legged comrade into countless victorious battles. Prince Marendil on Findelhuv by MWardancer, auf Flickr Prince Maerendil on Findelhuv (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Prince Baerenn on Snaefellsness the Bear Only few have ever mounted a white bear and lived. Snaefellsness was the only exception known among Elves and Baerenn was the only rider he accepted. After the battle of the northern plains, he became the first bear ever to be honored with the protective rune of Griss-Ly. Prince Bearenn on Snaefellsness by MWardancer, auf Flickr Prince Baerenn on Snaefellsness (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr General Maeven on Felsentritt, carrying the Goddess Banner Carrying the Goddess Banner is an honor only few can ever hope to achieve. When general Maeven, battle-tried since the ambush on Viéd Nahm, and his steed Felsentritt enter the battlefield, lesser beings tremble before the sacred aura the banner exudes. Fellow elves, on the other hand, are said to feel in increase in courage and morale whenever her symbol is present. aven on Felsentritt by MWardancer, auf Flickr Lord Maven on Felsentritt (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Lord Maeven on Felsentritt (3) by MWardancer, auf Flickr The nameless Assassin To many, the mere idea of an Elven assassin seems absurd, even obscene, in regard to the high standards of elven ethics. However, for some... delicate matters, nameless assassins are needed. This silent warrior answers directly to the Everqueen and to her only. The Nameless Assassin by MWardancer, auf Flickr Archdruid Nemesis Many conclude that Elves embody qualities of a forest on a friendly summer's day, such as hospitality, ageless wisdom, peacefulness and dignity. However, most who were unfortunate enough to travel a forest in a stormy night will agree that forests also have a threatening, archaic side. In times of war, Wood Elves tap the forests primal rage and direct them. The Archdruid is the key to the forest's dark powers. After opening the gates for earthly creatures, he restores the mobilized energy by sacrificing enemies in the swamp Nemesis the Archdruid by MWardancer, auf Flickr Dryad Fiérce and the Sylvaneth Sisters (summoned) With the orc problem becoming more and more pressing, the druids had to resort to calling the dryads. These vile creatures usually slumber in the harsh, barren parts of the forest. Once summoned, cold hatred makes them rise and move towards the enemy. A shell of wood hardened by the ages makes them virtually impenetrable to most of the weapons used by mortals. With claws as hard as steel they stab their enemies without mercy. Dryads move faster than their big brothers, the Tree Demons and they usually travel in groups. Fiérce was the first to be called, and she will be in a particularly bad mood until her younger sisters show up. So if something whispers and crackles in the woods tonight, better not suppose it is the forest fairy... Dryads - The Sylvaneth Sisters by MWardancer, auf Flickr Dryad Fiérce by MWardancer, auf Flickr Dryad Fiérce (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sylvaneth Sisters by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sylvaneth Sister by MWardancer, auf Flickr Tree Demon (summoned) Please don't step on the trees, they might step on you. Often referred to as Forest Balrog, these Tree Demons are not to be messed with. Never ever approach them with an axe. If a tree has a circle of mushrooms around it, it is most likely a tree demon. They enjoy entangling their enemies in their branches and ripping them apart. Many tree demons befriend owls who serve as their air reconnaissance. Tree Demon by MWardancer, auf Flickr Tree Demon (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Tree Demon (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Daylight: Maidens of the Golden Glade Clan - Maidens of the Golden Glade by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sisters of the Thorn Riding into a thorny hedge is an endeavor most will never forget. Carrying the longest spears in the kingdom, Maidens of the Thorn block valuable passages for good. Even mounted enemies think twice before they risk running into the pointy end of this array. Sisters of Thorn by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sisters of Thorn (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sister of Thorn by MWardancer, auf Flickr Sister of Thorn (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Riders of the Fast Bark In the vast lands of the Goddess’ kingdom, fast riders are essential. When trouble is brewing, the Riders of the Fast Bark are the first ones to arrive. Riders of the Fast Bark by MWardancer, auf Flickr Rider of the Fast Bark by MWardancer, auf Flickr Mothers of Pearl With sturdy horses armored in gold, these experienced warrior beauties break into enemy lines when defensive measures are no option. Mothers of Pearl by MWardancer, auf Flickr Mother of Pearl by MWardancer, auf Flickr Avengers of Oak After the cowardly attack on Oakenfold, an order of fighters was founded to keep nature’s righteous rage alive. These determined warriors are the backbone of the Golden Glade clan. Avengers of Oak by MWardancer, auf Flickr Avenger of Oak by MWardancer, auf Flickr Veorra the Huntress A sight as pleasant warm autumn forest, Veorra the Huntress leads the fierce Maidens into battle. But do not be misled, her arrows will sting you right into your heart. Veorra the Huntress by MWardancer, auf Flickr Veorra the Huntress by MWardancer, auf Flickr Daylight: Greenfield Clan - Greenfield by MWardancer, auf Flickr Swordmasters of Gieven These skilled swordsmen run into battle wielding their giant two-handed swords. Without shield or heavy armor they swiftly move across the battlefield when hitting things hard is essential. Swordmasters of Gieven by MWardancer, auf Flickr Swordmaster of Gieven by MWardancer, auf Flickr Greenwood Rangers The all-terrain, fast-moving Greenwood Rangers know their way through the fields like no one else. Greenwood Rangers by MWardancer, auf Flickr Greenwood Ranger by MWardancer, auf Flickr Lords of the Harvest These noblemen have sworn to protect the fields’ rich fruit. Protected by the Rune of Elvesgiving, these agile swordsmen are notoriously hard to hit. Lords of the Harvest by MWardancer, auf Flickr Lord of the Harvest by MWardancer, auf Flickr Twilight: Elvnoi Dozor Clan - Elvnoi Dozor by MWardancer, auf Flickr Princess Evadia on Swivt the Hippogriff No one understands how this partnership ever came to pass. Sublime, untamed, even tremendous – maybe it was these attributes that unified beast and mistress. Today, everyone who sets foot on Elven land should remember that it is not only a place for a princess to conquer the skies, but also a hippogriff’s territory. Princess Evadia on Swivt the Hippogriff by MWardancer, auf Flickr Princess Evadia on Swivt the Hippogriff (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Princess Evadia on Swivt the Hippogriff(3) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Princess Evadia on Swivt the Hippogriff (4) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Protectors of the Inner Sanctum Darker times, after all, called for darker elves. No, not for evil ones, but for the toughest of them all. Protectors who walk in the moonlight as swift as in the sunshine, who have sworn by the Golden Stag to protect the Everqueen’s inner sanctum. The recent encounter with the undead demands their presence at the border and so they march against an unknown enemy. Protectors of the Inner Sanctum regiment by MWardancer, auf Flickr Protector of the Inner Sanctum by MWardancer, auf Flickr Protector of the Inner Sanctum (2) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Iron Watch Commander by MWardancer, auf Flickr Blades of Gray In the gray hours between night and day, when perception fades to gray and senses tire, these riders do their work. Their blades strike while their targets still wonder if the masked horse is one of a thousand shadows in the sleepy forest. Blades of Gray by MWardancer, auf Flickr Blade of Gray by MWardancer, auf Flickr Everlight: Arcane Royalty The Everqueen Some say her wings are real. Some say they are of magical nature, like the flowers she allows to blossom wherever she is present. Some think the wings are simply part of her artful attire. Others claim they are merely an allegory on her majesty's arcane powers and timeless beauty. Be as it may, most who have the honor to come before her throne, the broken heart of the forest, do not question the Queen’s ability to banish demons with a gesture of her tender hands. The Everqueen by MWardancer, auf Flickr The Archmage Couple: Filin and Fenian As an expression of the self-complementing polarity of nature, the archmage couple’s power is only surpassed by the Everqueen herself. With direct access to the elements, these two give light whenever darkness tries to spread. The Archmage Couple: Filin and Fenian by MWardancer, auf Flickr The Uneven Twins: Archmage Neapel and General Nepal If their stories were unknown and their names not famous, no one would guess that Neapel and Nepal were born as twins. Whereas the former is said to have summoned his beloved spirit wolf at the age of four, the latter ins known to have wrestled forest lions as an infant. Be as it may, to most defeated enemies it seems irrelevant which part of the inseparable couple has dealt the fateful blow.

First time posting one of my creations, apologies if this is not the right forum. Credit where it's due: Furniture was heavily inspired by brickbuilt.org furniture tutorials and google. The sliding mechanism was adapted from someone's assault gunship MOC I had saved. It's been reworked extensively but without the original builder I never would have gotten this done. https://imgur.com/a/Oz6st First we need to build a couple piece of furniture, 2x6x7 and 2x8x6. The only real important dimension here is the 4x8 plate the right piece is covering. The nitty gritty of the technique. The bookcase runs on a pair of axles feeding through a pair of technic bricks in the back wall. They will protrude into the next room when the bookcase is pushed back. By pushing them the bookcase can be returned to it's starting place. Fairly self explanatory, bit of SNOT work to attach the 6x8 plate to the back of the wardrobe. The 6x8 plate attaches to the two brackets in the channels. These brackets are half the magic trick. 1x4 tile, 1x4 plate, bracket and 1x1 plates. This is the difficult bit. Using 1x4 L-shaped tiles and lots of jumper plates we build a pair of channels. The 1x2 plate with clip hinge helps to keep the door on the rails, without it gets caught and refuses to slide. The 1x5 brick acts as my slide stop. A different angle. Everything is built onto a 2x8 plate , jumpers give a half stud offset and provide half the channel. More jumpers return us to standard studs to set up the second channel, and yet more jumpers to repeat the previous channel. Followed by more jumpers to bring us back to standard studs so we can attach to the wall. Until it's connected to the wall the whole assembly is pretty fragile. My apologies about the picture quality. I'm not much of a photographer to begin with and my cellphone camera wasn't helping much.
Number: 1786 Name: Jailbreak Joe (I'd love to know what this was called in other countries) Theme: Town Subtheme: Police Year: 1995 Minifigs: 4 Pieces: 180 Price: ? Parts Even though this set has two themes in it they stuck to three major colors (White, black and red) which I appreciate. Note that I couldn't collect all the parts, so I can't build all the vehicles at the same time, and the paddywagon suffered the most from color changes and a significant missing part. People As you can see, Joe is Missing! (Well he is "Jailbreak" joe) Here he is... http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=jail002 So four figures and this might seem weird, but I'd like to see more variety. The two police men are identical, and the cheif and joe share a hair pattern. Even throwing a standard grin head for one of the policemen would have helped. Build Nice to see a helicopter that doiesn't use a <insert that tiresome argument> part for the base. Nice use of a hinge brick. A little slender, but there are four vehicles in this set, and this thing is made of a lot of good reusable pieces, so I'm willing to be forgivable. Here's Joe's car. The blue pieces as shock absorbers are interesting, and they were only in for sets before this one, and in two other sets the same year. Note that the trans blue one is my color substitute, and that the two axles are on different levels to make the vehicle tilted. Joe's completed truck. The paddywagon. This sticker goes over three 1x4 bricks. I was very happy to see it intact, unfortunatelly the panels for the other stickers were missing. The paddywagon. Please note that the roof is supposed to be white and the lights are suppsoed to be trans red and trans blue. MVP (most valuable piece) Light Gray Bar 1 x 4 x 3 Window! I love a good bar piece, and one without studs or sockets I love even more as they are often a better looking decorative piece than one with studs. I can see this piece being usefull for a lot of different themes. Conclusion Parts: 10/10 A great mix of standard pieces and great decorative pieces. Sticks to three main colors while finding room for some usefull trans pieces. Minifigs: 8/10 Build: 9/10 Playability: 10/10...if I could do an 11 I would. Price: ? Total: 92% As a bonus, here's what I think happend with the pieces that I couldn't substitute or replace at all.
