Collapsing Cave

 

One should always be wary when delving for treasures. Natural hazards can be just dangerous as the things that inhabit caverns!

#487822 Review: BrickFair Virginia 2018 - Featuring Cool Swag!

Posted by Nightstalker on 06 August 2018 - 11:15 AM

Hello once again folks!

 

BrickFair Virginia 2018 is officially over! And man, was it a blast! Apart from displaying a build with some assistance of the SSLF forums, this year was full of great things!

 

So, for starters:

 

28938078457_779139be8c_z.jpg

 

I received a visit from both Admins (2nd time we've met)! If you ever get the chance to meet Justin and Maegan, do so! They're both really awesome people! Thanks for paying me a visit, and I hope you both enjoy the minifigs!

 

That aside, here are some highlights from this year!

These are just some of the pictures of things that made me go "WOW". You can see the rest of the album here:

Please note that pictures of my build will be posted in the topic located here:

With that done, time to cover some neat swag!

 

43839772542_ea0f2b708b_z.jpg

 

First off, my badge. It has officially grown to the point where I need a frame to contain it.

 

43170330974_b5b982f5dd_z.jpg

 

BrickWarriors Arabian Scimitar and Head Cover

 

- Like all other BW items, these are made very well! This offers up a new curved sword and headgear for making some fierce, desert warriors. I'd like to eventually see the head cover in Tan and Brown, but as of now these are some solid items to add to the line up.

 

30018447958_353307117a_z.jpg

 

BrickWarriors Busker Hat and Trumpet Flags

 

- Bards rejoice! This stylish hat was made just for you! It was available in dark red and blue and is a nice addition to the musical specialists. I rather like its look and it definitely adds more to an area that hasn't really been covered by TLG.

 

30018447858_e141ed0e1b_z.jpg

30018447888_29fa9ace64_z.jpg

 

BrickWarriors Paladin Sword, Paladin Armor, and Paladin Helmet

 

- So I might have gone overboard with this, but this is going to easily become my favorite armor set. Arched pauldrons on a clean torso and a very nice helmet (kinda looks elven) and the very clean sword easily make this a great addition to the fantasy line up. It even comes with a stud on the back for placing additional accessories or weaponry.

 

30018447828_e51732da95_z.jpg

 

BrickWarriors Paladin Shield, Conquistador Helmet, and Dwarven Sword

 

- Oh, I forgot to mention the really awesome shield design for the Paladin Set! This shield will make tanking blows even easier. For those into pirates, you'll notice the nice Conquistador helmet. It's more detailed than TLGs but also bigger. It also goes along well with the Paladin torso. Last in this picture is the Dwarven Sword. I'm going to start by saying that I shouldn't actually have this piece. It was accidentally in the Paladin Sword pile, and I completely wasn't paying attention to it when I picked it up. That being said, this prompted one of my buds to do some research:

42057556581_7e49be4fb8.jpg?width=398&hei

40066677345_9287c52568_k.jpg?width=400&h

 

What we found was a full set of Dwarven Accessories including an Axe, Sword, Hammer, and Shield. So yes, more custom items will be coming for Dwarves!

 

So, when are these coming out?

Here's a rough time line based off of a conversation with Merrie (writes BW's blogs).
Paladin Accessories are roughly 3-4 months out.
Busker Accessories are probably 6-7 months out.
Dwarf Accessories currently have no release date.
That being said, these items are more than likely available from the Rewards Exclusive Pack (200 BW points). If you have the points, make sure to request a Medieval/Fantasy pack.
 
Overall, BFVA2018 was a blast! It gives me an even greater reason to look forward to BFVA2019!
 
Thanks for viewing, and hope to see you next year!
- Nick

Detailed explanation will be given following BrickFair! Expect lots of pics showing off everyone's figs!

 

Thank you all for the participation!

Still really like those LEGO to non-LEGO drawings. Can't put my finger on it, but I really like it!

 

I also like the mail, on the zombie soldier. The overall detail is nice!

 

Keep up the good work!

Been hard at work!

 

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:

 

28478938277_637b48aebc_z.jpg

 

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!

- Nick

 

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.

Here's what we have so far. I'm waiting on supports and more bricks... which should show up sometime tomorrow or next week.




#487735 Brickfair Virginia 2018: A Day at the Arena

Posted by Nightstalker on 03 July 2018 - 01:58 PM

Don't think I've forgotten about this! I've just been super stressed with ordering and last minute planning!

 

So here's a quick update:

 

- Shield decals have been ordered! They will go on the frame of the build once it is at BrickFair.

- All combatants have been built: a picture will go up this week!

- 2/3 of the area beneath the plebs has been built. Another 150 1x2x5 bricks have been ordered.

- 350 2x6 bluish gray bricks have been ordered for the stands.

- 12 additional Maukr attackers have been ordered.

- The Iron Golem has received a weapon upgrade.

- An additional 21 spectators have been added.

Even more progress!

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.

 

Stay tuned for more updates!
