#487668 Brickfair Virginia 2018: A Day at the Arena

Posted by Nightstalker on Yesterday, 02:52 PM

Hori is approved. Probably going to opt out of the shield (no BF battle shields available), but he'll be there. 

 

Keep 'em coming folks!

 

Also, due to the current suggestions, I'm going to reduce the combatant list to 10!

Progress!

 

The lower half of the coliseum is almost done! I'm waiting for a bunch of Lion Head pieces:

 

30274.jpg?0

 

Once those are in, I'll add some chains and BrickWarriors' torches to the wall. Also, harpoons for spikes will be added in the sections with 8 holes and the masonry bricks. The inside will be filled with support layers then covered with dark bley plates. That will finish off the lower section of the coliseum. Once that's finished, the two side areas with angled bricks will be reserved for the admins. Everything else will be for the civies and the very front will be sectioned off for the mods, novas, and arena warden.

 

The arena itself (the area that still needs to be covered with dark tan) will be filled with a couple of pitfall traps. Fortunately, since we don't have any real magic users here, no need to add spell effects. Oh, and to add to the arena flair, expect to see plenty of blood, gold, and oddly enough, roses!

 

Now, time for figure updates!

 

As far as special minifigs go:

- Decals for Caiden, Nox, and Garandros have been ordered and are on their way.

- 8 more combatant slots are still open!

- Plenty of room for unique patrons as well! Just let me know!

- At the end of June, custom shield decals will be put in!

 

Now then, on to something I haven't bothered to address! Who the heck are your figs fighting?

 

Great question!

 

It seems the tales of SSLFs triumph over Agruz have traveled far! That being said, it would appear as though Necros and the Maukr have decided to accept the challenge. This should prove to be more than a challenge for such accomplished warriors! Oh, and he'll be bringing his wonderful Iron Golem along as well! Yeah, this is going to be one heck of a battle!

Grounds for the coliseum have been laid out. Construction will begin on the coliseum tomorrow! With any luck, by the end of next week, I'll be roughly about 75% done with the actual coliseum.

 

Basically, I've got the make the wall roughly about 10-15 bricks high. Variations will be made specifically to get the layout for the two Admin seating areas. Mods will be given front row seating, with Novas being in the section right behind them. All the freebies and jobbers will be crammed into the back.

 

Remember folks, you have plenty of time to submit minifigs! Freebies may submit up to 5 patrons. Novas may submit 5 patrons and 1 combatant. Mods may submit 5 patrons, 1 combatant, and 1 VIP fig. Admins get their special fig, elite guard, 1 combatant, and up to 5 patrons.

 

Last note, if you are a member of SSLF and I happen to have a previously submitted figure, chances are they will get used as a combatant, because let's be real here, it's not an SSLF build without yall!

 

Anywho, remember you have up to August 3rd! The closer the day gets, the harder it may be to obtain certain things within a time frame.

 

Oh, another decal order will go out tomorrow! For both custom decals (looking at you Nox and Garandros), and stuff in the store (Caiden and some nameless jobbers). So if you need decals for a fig, just PM me or drop a message in the Discord!

 

Thanks,

- Nick

Those three can be added as spectators. Perc will be added as a trans yellow stud. I'll look into picking up Caiden's decals. I'll probably request a set of decals to make Nox as well.

Of course, this is assuming that the creator of these characters allows me to add them.

"That is a good idea" Hollí agreed, seeing her chance. "Still, I don't think we should limit ourselves to just one source. So, Krystia and I"---she pulled the young (and still annoyingly taller) half-elf close---"will go speak to the guards. And the rest of you can speak to the commoners who originally reported the sounds... or you could even try asking a noble if you can stomach it. Agreed? Good!" she said before anyone else could give their input, immediately setting out, dragging young Krystia after her.

 

 

It was either a blessing of some divine, or sheer luck that Hollí pulled Krystia away. Auric returned a quick nod to Hollí; he'd remember this in future. With the group officially split, he found the nearest guard and started his investigation.

 

"Excuse me sir," he started as he approached a guard, "have you heard any strange noises around these parts or seen anything out of the ordinary?"

Ah yes!

 

Seeing Lord Gwyn and Lord Talon fighting puts a smile on my face!

 

I'm also quite a fan of the concept art for your own universe. I'm curious to know more about the place(s).

"I think we should follow Caiden's lead," she interjected suddenly, moving to stand just slightly too close to his left side. "You know this area well, right?" 

 

Auric let out a deep sigh as he crossed his arms and looked at the ground. Having watched several of his fellow Venator's interactions at the Castle, he figured he'd get no where debating with the swooning girl. Instead, he chose to remain silent and wait for the others to voice their suggestions.

Update Time, Update Time, Update Time, it's Update Time!

 

41797936484_2165320a72_z.jpg

 

The frame for the arena is finished! And I'm somehow still on schedule (for once in my building life)! 

 

41797937014_2b99054600_z.jpg

 

The frame stands four bricks high and is covered by a layer of dark bley plates. You'll notice these lovely, blank shields in the frame. These are for the gladiator crests. Remember, each combatant needs to post a crest, so I can get it up on these shields. It adds just a little more style to the build!

 

That's it for the build updated, but don't worry, I have minifig updates!

 

First off, the Elite Scorpion Guard is finished. These glorious figs will be posted alongside King Scorp sometime this week. Speaking of our beloved Admins, the parts for two more werewolves will be in as well, taking care of Wolf Queen Mav and her Elite Wolf Guard (sooo tempted to just write Wulfgard).

 

Which brings me to my next little issue... I STILL NEED FIGS!!!

 

I'm still accepting stuff literally till the week of BFVA2018 (which is the last week of July/first week of August). Remember, depending on your forum status, you can submit numerous figs! While I can fill the stands with many of my own creations, I'd really love to get more SSLF folks in. I don't care if you pull from Errant, Wulfgard, some game, your own creation, just so long as it lands in the castle/fantasy range!

 

So help ya boi Nightstalker out!

 

That is all, stay tuned for more updates this week!

#487210 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Nightstalker on 25 May 2018 - 06:37 PM

Hey! Guess what?

 

*crickets chirp*

 

MINIFIG TIME!!!

 

40546380490_afa4291aef_z.jpg

 

Gavra Ulox, Nightmare Warlock

 

40546381380_59271fbff3_z.jpg

 

Today's cool pieces are brought to you by Arealight Customs.

 

Gavra is one of the few demons currently serving Aka's Wrath. "Uh, what the heck is Aka's Wrath?" Glad you asked inner monologue! Aka's Wrath is the name of a rebel faction in the Extraho-Sol. They are made of some demons, but mostly half-demons. Initially, they formed as a group of outcasts from the Empire. These outcasts suffered under the Emperor and sought to better themselves. However, in order to oppose his might, they made a pact with several, exiled Nightmare demons. The result led to the creation of many half-demons. The first of these half-demons was Aka Misura, who still leads them. 

 

With that out of the way, lets talk about Gavra. So, she use to be a member of the Demon King's court. However, her ambitions led her to join a coup against the King. Yeah, that didn't end so well. The King promptly crushed the coup, and expelled the leaders to the realm of mortals. Having no where else to go, she traveled to the East, where she made the acquaintance of several other demons and Aka. Her, along with the other demons agreed to train the outcasts in the Dark Arts, which eventually led to the halfies. 

 

Currently, she still stands as one of the head demons in Aka's Wrath.

Mitzu, The Wandering Blade

 

40546383190_fe4e9e8f30_z.jpg

 

Katana is from BrickWarriors. The decal is from Saber-Scorpion. It is the FFXIV Myochin Gear for Samurai:

 

18132de075f686022daa09c6989982c157a48ddf

 

Mitzu is a wandering swordsman. His full name is Mitzu Hyu, and he was a member of the Swordmaster Legion. He almost achieved the title of Grand Master, but left it when he grew tired of killing in the name of the Emperor. A chance encounter with a young slave girl made him pick up the sword once more, but this time in the name of defending others.

Prince Acrus Lyssan, The Stormblade

 

27483788307_10ae1a6f25_z.jpg

27483791147_ff65280f0e_z.jpg

 

I can't tell you how much I've tweaked this guy...

 

Katanas are from BrickWarriors, bracers and loincloth are from AreaLight, and the waist cloth is from CapeMadness.

 

Stormblade is the long lost cousin of my sigfig Orion Talon. More importantly, he's the prince to a long, lost elven empire in the Champions Realm. His primary weapon is a set of katanas, each containing a different elemental effect. The large object he carries with him is nothing more than a high tech sheath.

 

So let me sum up his backstory real quickly. Stormblade is a super elf. He's significantly taller, stronger, and faster than any other elf. His affinity for magic is also greater. He's also kind of crazy about fighting strong things to test his strength. This is further driven by his ability to empower himself for slaying strong beings. This has also led him to look down upon those he deems lesser. Again, I'd dive more into his story, but... yeah... that would take way too much time.

 

I'll probably share some more at a later date (considering that writing topic).

 

Anywho, hope you enjoyed!
