Another ragtag army, but a good ragtag army. I forget how varied armies are at times. I've always liked the Storm Trooper approach of everyone being the same.

The scalemail looks really good on the Frost Ravens, and you did great on the paint with Princess Adrianya!

Marcus looks dope as all get.

I also enjoy the throwback to Skorpiontowne!

Between you and Nightstalker, I feel a bigger need to commission Scorp for Lego or art.

 

I'll be buying parts for the new Wulfgard Imperial Legionaries eventually, those are much more uniform.  But outside of the more regimented armies like that, yes, it's quite fun to work with more varied armies.

 

Doesn't it?  Scorp and Mav are rightly proud of how that design turned out.

 

Thank you!  Your feedback brings joy to my heart.

 

I highly recommend it!  I'm thinking of getting something in color soon.  Speaking of which...

 

Awesome stuff, Cappy! All of it looks great - the armies, Adrianya - and your fully armored sigfig looks downright badass.

 

BTW, that berserker's chest decal was from a weird commission I got, and then included in the Patreon packages, but it works great for that purpose! :lol:

Aah, I was wondering about that!  I was frantically digging through my Patreon envelopes to find something like that, so I'm glad you included it.

 

Awesome group of Nords and Frost Raven! Your sigfig is also really cool!

 

Thanks, Nightstalker!  Back when I started RP'ing Marcus, I hadn't nailed down much about his actual looks; but when Scorp and Mav's kickstarter came up, I gave Scorp some vague instructions, and he came up with the awesome sketch here.  Then, I just ran with whatever Lego accessories would best go with the basic Inquisitor decal, and this was the result!  It took lot of custom painting since Brickforge was having stock issues even back then, but I'm quite happy with the results.

 

Nice Update! The Marcus figs are my favorite that you've done so far!

 

I really need to take some pictures of some stuff that I've had sitting around for a while...

 

 

Thank you!  As mentioned above, the WG one was a labor of love, and the SYWBAA one was also quite fun to design.

 

You should, I've found it quite therapeutic.  

 

For the next update, I'll probably just take pictures of more minifigs I've already assembled, but have kept lying in my drawer.  Or drawers.  And a box or two.  Wulfgard may be my current favorite universe/Stebbins franchise, but it's not the only set of decals I've purchased, as you'll soon see.

By popular demand on Discord, behold, my collection of Nordlings!  (Plus a few surprises at the end, if you have the patience.)

While I mentioned on Discord that I planned to be painting Frost Raven helmets this weekend, I kept the rest of the army close to my proverbial vest.  As you can see, there were quite a few of them. 

 

Spoiler

 

Please ignore my ratty old covers and the organizer I forgot to crop out, I just wanted to get reeeeaaaally close to those pikes.

 

Spoiler

 

While I knew my Nordling army would inevitably include some stereotypical Viking-style axes and shields, I also wanted to try my hand at the Geatling pikemen that Scorp mentioned in "Wake Not the Sleeping Bull."  The Northmen adapting their tactics and weaponry to counter Imperial knights fascinated me greatly.  Oh, and speaking of Stebbins short stories, look who tagged along there, in the center left!  If you haven't bought their collection already, I highly recommend that you do.

 

Spoiler

 

These are my "specialists," aka the minifigs I couldn't fit on the other baseplate.  Frederik the Burning Viking and the Frost Raven with an actual cape were both Patreon rewards, while the rest were assembled by me.  The berserker's decal probably came from something else, but I needed a shirtless decal to go with the wolfskin headpiece, and I forgot to order that decal separately.  Hopefully you'll also think that it looks cool.

 

Spoiler

 

I'm still not quite sure about my choice for the BrickWarriors bardiches for the Frost Ravens' halberds, but neither BW nor the regular Lego halberds quite fit the official images, either.  Also, rear view of the Patreon Frost Raven to show off his custom cape.

 

Spoiler

 

Here we have a closer view of some of the more unique Northern warriors from my formation.

 

Spoiler

 

While I was in a painting mood, I also assembled my very own Princess Adrianya minifig!  Finding her hairpiece wasn't nearly as frustrating as getting the paint on her arms and hands to cooperate, but she still looks quite pretty.  I didn't paint the armored duckling Sir Tom to the left, I just wanted to show him off, since he's been in my collection since the Kickstarter.

 

Spoiler

 

Another minifig that's been in my collection a while is my Wulfgard sigfig: Inquisitor Marcus Capulet!

 

Spoiler

 

Sans helmet and halberd, with a bewildered expression on his face.  Anyone who's RP'd with me in Errant knows this is pretty much Marcus' default expression nowadays. 

 

Spoiler

 

While I was in a painting mood, I ended up idly thinking to myself, "Hey, if I was a Moderator during the SYWBAA days, what would my Skorpiontowne Guard minifig look like?"  This was the result.  There was a gold paint pen in the pack with the silver pen I got for the Frost Ravens, and I had no intention of letting it go to waste.

 

Spoiler

 

A poor attempt at the "Spiderman Points at Spiderman" meme, because I am a nerd.

Hah, quite the juxtaposition there!  I haven't forgotten the first one, with the awesome temple guards, but seeing the tables turn like this amused me a good bit more than it should have.  There may even have been chuckling.  <.<  >.>

I've rewatched the Frozen II trailer about 5 times this afternoon, and I am no less excited.  The sweeping landscapes, the exciting snippets of action, Elsa's hair and her apparent war against the ocean, everything is looking gorgeous!  My only question is whether the writers will have a new song for Idina Menzel to be bugged to sing over and over again.  <.<  >.>

 

But dangit Anna, get your own sword!  That is not proper weapon etiquette.

Looks gorgeous, Neyo!  I like how you give context with the historical facts and actual blueprints, too.  You pushed through the issues to make an outstanding product, and your tank build is magnificent, thanks to your efforts.
