Hey folks! My name is Nick! I really love building LEGO; I've been building since I was about 3 or 4 and my collection is only a couple years younger than myself. I enjoy building castle and mythic sci-fi builds. I just recently graduated from UMW with a BS in Computer Science; with any luck, you'll be seeing my builds rather frequently. Anyways, I've been inspired by so many builders and I always look to get better and better in building. Oh yeah! If you're ever curious, check out my Brickshelf Page at:http://www.brickshel...Nightstalker580. Hope you enjoy!

Stands are done, and the final orders will be going out on Friday to ensure I have all of the supports, plates, special effects, and minifigs to finish the build.
Speaking of cool things:
14 shield designs (technically 15, but only 14 will be used). The 15th shield is simply a Lion Knight shield from the Kingdoms line. This is the final set of WIP pictures for the arena. The next set of pictures will be during the week of July 29th. Those will be the final MOC.
Until then folks, take care!
Oh! Expect a picture of all of the combatants this week!
I believe the robe is a Scorp original. Unfortunately, not seeing alternative replacements for it. Although, if you really wanted one in a similar color, you might be able to reach out to the owner of Cape Madness.
Next are the stands for the plebs and the stairs. I'll also make some comfy chairs and other decor for the Mod/Nova area.
Other updates: At this point, I'm closing off the combatant entries. You can still submit special patrons, but I have to place in the decal order for the shields, just to make sure there's plenty of time to have 'em made.
The lower coliseum is finished, minus the dangly bits and two 16x16 dark bley plates (those are on the way). Construction of the upper coliseum will commence over the weekend and into the next week! The current schedule is as follows:
- Scorp's Admin area.
- Mav's Admin area.
- Mod & Nova area.
- Pleb area.
Due to the overall amount of SSLF minifigs, the Mod and Nova sections were merged. This section will hold all submitted figures!
Also, since the number of combatants has shrunk. The five additional shields will hold the following:
The lower half of the coliseum is almost done! I'm waiting for a bunch of Lion Head pieces:
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?
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!
