Ah, looks like they're coming along nicely!

 

I appreciate how you start assembling the minifigs with their weapons and accessories before applying the decals.  I've been doing the same thing, since it makes sense for making sure you'll have the right parts in the desired numbers, and finalizing how I want them to look before sticking decals onto them.

 

Thanks for the update and valuable advice, you're doing excellent work here.

Aw, really?  I shouldn't have jumped the gun with my 35% coupon from Halloween, but didn't think their clearance (if they had one) would remove a significant amount.  

 

Ah well, maybe I'll get some more of their hexibrix stands or something.

Oh man, yes, the NECK ARMOR.  They have all these awesome pauldrons, but I have to cover up Scorp's decals or existing chest/back designs with their battle armor to use them?  I even asked them by contact form if the neck armor was coming back into stock, as I'd been looking for months, and they informed me that they had no plans to restock it.  As in, "ever," judging by the tone of the email.  Which, in hindsight, I should have taken as a hint that things weren't going well.

A tragedy, to be sure, though now I realize there was precedent.  They seemed to be having trouble keeping products in stock, for reasons I can only guess at, and newer competitors like BrickWarriors seem to be quickly filling the gaps. 

 

We shall mourn their loss, and remember the impact they had on our creations.

 

Edit: Oddly enough, I'm subscribed to their email list, but didn't get this notification.  Ah well, I trust Nightstalker as a source.  I wonder if there'll be a big clearance sale soon...

You've seriously outdone yourself with these, especially Nightstalker's commission!  The fog effects in the background, the glow of his shortsword, the scrollwork on the armor, it's all so beautiful!

 

Not to mention the details on the Valkyrie and Magnhild, the tiny splashes of color are an excellent touch.  I didn't think Guntram's massive helmet would fit Magnhild, but she pulls off the look very well!  I suppose it'd be a different story if she grabbed his cloak or pants or something, but I always associated that monster of a man's head with the rest of him, lol.
