It certainly does, and the additional reference pictures are doubly appreciated!  One could definitely have some fun with arranging these, and your squad usage both looks and is brilliant. 

 

Thank you again!

Thank you for taking the time to write this!  I'd been on the fence about this product, but if one of this forum's most prolific minifig artists cared enough to look this closely, the rest of us can certainly value his perspective.  I also appreciate the tip about the different disks in the 6-pack, I probably wouldn't have noticed that until after purchasing.

 

I'm guessing the Hexibrix Link is the little rectangular tab on the top left of the picture?  I can infer it uses those little tabs to connect adjacent pieces, though I'm curious about how stable that link would be?  You mentioned creating landscapes with these, would one need to order additional links or do these stack onto baseplates?

Just the basic framework is sufficient, thank you!  I was curious about the general concepts, and you mentioned enough of the specific details to ward off any followup questions, I think.

 

I do have another question on a completely different subject, though!

 

Regarding beetle mounts for the Dwarves: What species of beetle do you see as the premium, most desired mounts, and which ones are more common, garden-variety?  In Into the North, Atlas warbulls seem pretty valuable, but I was wondering if all beetles are rare and difficult to procure, forcing poorer dwarf clans to use big goats or boars; or if beetles are essentially the dwarven equivalent of horses, with different varieties and levels of quality?

It's funny, I never had particularly strong feelings for or against beetles until seeing them mount-sized in WG. Now I've spent the last 15 minutes or so following Scorp's image links and researching different species, and it's brightening this cold, rainy, dreary afternoon.

 

As for all the other minifigs, I hope sung their praises enough wherever I could, but seeing all their pictures in one place is quite convenient, and thus greatly appreciated. So, thank you for that!

 

I've been meaning to ask about Bomm's axe in this image.  Is that an especially rare Lego piece, or one you custom-modified?  The jewel in the head is gorgeous, as are the layered colors around the blade edges.

For some reason when I read this, I had this mental image of Drake attempting to seduce Scaevius. 

 

 

 

Ew.  And out of character, given the two character's mutual hatred and Tom being very, very into ladies.  I was thinking more along the lines of a lady against Tom's standards (i.e. married, related to someone he respects, too young, whatever Wolfy decides) or just not very attractive to him (too old, etc.)  Perhaps the Queen of Illikon herself?  Running into her would be awkward for just about anyone, to put it mildly.

 

Fun prompts! I'll definitely give some of these a shot. The very last one there, though... you may be interested in a project I'm working on. ;)

 

And the first one... reminds me just how badly Scorp and I need to go back and finish an old project of ours that we were co-writing. Interested in hearing about some Silent Messenger adventures of Hanan and Kye? :P

 

Oooh, foreshadowing!

 

Certainly!  Given the recent release of the Silent Messengers figures, including Hanan, the timing seems right.
