#488820 Brickfair Virginia 2019: One More Battle

Posted by Nightstalker on Yesterday, 02:32 PM

More progress!

 

Added two obelisks, six sacrifice altars, and barricades.

Sooo...

 

Additional things that need to be mentioned.

1) Two organ guns will be added to the main display. One will be destroyed by vines which were created by orc shamans.

2) Still waiting on supply boxes and crates for the orc camp.

3) Orc banners have been created.

4) Still waiting on the parts to build the main altar. A small setback happened this week where I received the wrong order; with any luck, I should get that order sometime this week.

5) Shamans are 50% done.

6) Blood collection begins this week as well.

 

That's about it for now. I'll probably have one, maybe two more updates before BFVA2019.

At least half of the minifigs are brand new (130). Most parts are reused from previous builds except for the baseplates, some dark tan plates, and most of the light bley.

DoD work keeps me well supplied! :)

Terrain and wall update!

 

Still missing tiles for the wall, but other than that, the wall is basically done. Additional decorations are on their way, and work on the temple grounds commences next week.

Classics indeed!

 

I'm still happily stuck in Monster Hunter World (PC).

Just recently passed my TES: Skyrim playtime with this game, and still have plenty of things to do!

I'm personally a fan of Hero Forge for OCs, however...

 

Gonna have to check out Reaper for NPCs and enemies.

 




#488780 The LEGO M7 Medium Tank Project 2

I love all of the greeble bits on those tanks. They add a really nice amount of detail. I keep on saying it, but if you get the chance, you should really try getting the pieces to build any of your tanks. You have quite the great amount of love for historical tanks, and it would be awesome to see one built out!

I love that orc! The fur on the armor stands out. I also really like the texture on the dino as well.

Hey folks,

 

Feels like forever since I've made a thing. However, that hasn't stopped me from preparing for Brickfair Virginia this year. This year will feature 120 Ankorans vs. 130 Altrairian Orcs. Of course, this does not factor in any unique figures that will be on both sides or the one cameo figure. No need to guess who that figure is, it's Tom Drake. Honestly, he's a regular as far as yearly builds go, and one of the few figures that would seamlessly blend in with the other Ankoran soldiers. 

 

So far, here's the layout!

I still have some terrain layering that needs to be done, which will probably happen tomorrow. During the month of July, I'll be working on a temple on one side of the battlefield. It'll look broken up, but should be pretty nice when a ton of decorations are added. Oh, and there will be plenty of blood! 

 

So yeah...

 

That's all for now. I am aiming to have the other baseplates layered tomorrow.

The Master of the Blood Garden really sticks out to me. It has a majestic yet creepy feel to it.

Sooo...

 

Still being nerdy, and trust me, this day has blown me away for many reasons. But my bro decided to get me a gift.

Ashbringer from World of Warcraft

 

Details: https://wow.gamepedia.com/Ashbringer

 

Back in the first post, I mentioned how this is without a doubt my favorite sword of all time! Perfect for purging nasty undead and demons; it's the perfect legendary weapon for Paladins. This thing wasn't cheap at a whopping $400. I can't thank him enough for gifting this to me.

One of the many things that have made this day stupidly good! Fun fact, I had to go on a lovely quest to the post office to get this since the apartment number was not on the address.

While I usually don't find myself posting here ever, I'll just say enjoy the Dark Souls series! Truth be told, they aren't as hard as anyone makes them out to be.

I'll probably get something up once my next order gets in. As of now, I've got 2x4 48-stud baseplates ready for building.

Hey folks!

 

Been awhile since I said anything, so I figure I ought to say something. Does anyone have any nerdy things? Whether it's figures, replicas, posters or whatever out there?

 

Recently, I've found myself gathering replica weapons from various games. I'll start by showing off my most recent acquisition:

Dark Drinker from Destiny 1.

 

This goes up there as one of my top 3 swords (1 - Ashbringer, 2 - Dark Drinker, 3 - Moonlight Greatsword). I bought it from Fire and Steel (fireandsteel.ca), and I am quite happy with how durable it is!

It was a sword with a spin to win, and possibly my favorite exotic!

Posted by Nightstalker on 19 June 2019 - 02:20 PM

Sooo...

 

This project is being postponed till after BrickFair Virginia 2019.

 

I'm basically in crunch time for finishing my build and there is no possible way I can get the brown orcs finished in time for it. The display will still feature the orcs that are done, but it will probably be 120 (humans) vs. 130 (orcs). 

 

Apologies to those who might have been holding their breath.

At least half of each orc clan has shields. As for the metalwork, this clan is specifically known for piecing stuff together from various remains, hence the mixture of armor.
