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!

"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?"
"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!
The frame for the arena is finished! And I'm somehow still on schedule (for once in my building life)!
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!
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.
Katana is from BrickWarriors. The decal is from Saber-Scorpion. It is the FFXIV Myochin Gear for Samurai:
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
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).
Stuff for the Scorpion Guard and King Scorp will be ordered this weekend along with the pieces to start the base of the build. Keep the minifig suggestions coming folks! I still have plenty of room to fill up!
As usual, let's cover the custom bits. First off, decals by Saber-Scorpion! Been meaning to order a set of these for a while. For those who don't know, they are based off of the Destiny 1 exotic chest piece, Heart of the Praxic Fire. The arms were based off of the Y1 Iron Banner Warlock set. Moving along, the loincloth is from Arealight Customs, the coat is from CapeMadness, and the gun is a prototype Brickarms Fusion Rifle. Yeah, that thing still isn't out, and it was made almost four years ago!
So, here Nightstalker goes again with this Order of the Holy Blade junk again. Aria is the leader of the Holy Blade. If her last name seems familiar it's because she's Fenix's super great descendant. Apart from being Champion of Leik, Aria also possesses the full power of the Dark Maiden. "Hey wait, up! Doesn't that mean she's..." Yep you guessed it, she's also related to Saleena Fale. I'll let you work that one out. Anywho, that witch/magic side of her can be seen by the distinct purple highlights in her hair. While I won't give away the story of how she got to this position, I will say that she is commonly referred to as, "The Last Light."
Nobleman Dalton (left) and Amanon (your other left).
Somehow recorded by a member of the FFA...
Arena Herald: "Sir, I've got good news!"
Arena Master: "We finally became sell outs!?"
AH: "Uh... no... we got a pre-order and another combatant!"
AM: "FANTASTIC!!! Another suck... I mean, another patron of our fine establishment! Who are they now?"
AH: "We've got Nobleman Dalton, who happens to be sponsoring this combatant, Amanon."
AM: "Never heard of either of 'em!"
AH: "I think Amanon slew a dark lord..."
AM: "Listen, I'll believe it when I see it in the arena. Do you know how many people claim they killed this and that..."
AH: "I mean, there was a cool mural of him in a newspaper..."
AM: "Whatever, just make sure they both get here safely! And that Nobleman better be rich! We don't let beggars and vagabonds in!"
