Man, those look badass. Very nice.

 

Love that nice smooth wall/frame above too.

 

Have you asked on the Discord for minifig submissions? Might help, I dunno.

Yep, the Discord should be well aware!

Alright, here's another submission, this one for a combatant!

 

Presenting the disgraced and exiled dwarven priest, Sigmar Oathbreaker.  Never actually imagined him in minifig form before, so this has been rather fun.

 

Head: This beauty.  His face contorted in rage, his beard still not recovered from being shaven long ago.

 

Body/decals: Like Dagfari, the grey-armored dwarf shown here.  The decals can be purchased from Scorp at this location.  I would request a darker brown for his legs, if possible, and black or brown hands, whichever matches better with the dwarf legs you get for him.  No need for a beard piece or those epaulets, though.  If you think he'll need pauldrons with the helmet below, I'll leave that to your discretion.

 

Accessories: 

https://www.brickwar...y-watch-helmet/

https://www.brickwar...buckler-shield/

http://saber-scorpio...ors-hammerpick/

 

Crest:  A plain black shield, or a broken hammer, if you're feeling fancy.  Whatever he did not only got him exiled and shaved, but also forbidden from using his clan's name or regalia ever again.

 

Thank you again, and please let me know if you need anything clarified!

I'm back to suggest more people since nobody else seems to be interested:

 

1. Caiden and Percula

 

These two should really be a part of this moc to begin with anyway. The Caiden Minifig is in the MOC gallery, and his decals are in the shop, so if you don't already own him you can figure out how to make him. For the Percula minifig, I would suggest this:

 

Hair 

Head:

Torso: This plus these wings, though you might want to remove the print first

Waist

Legs: Short legs, painted to be a flesh color.

 

Their heraldic symbol is Caiden's Sweet Abs.

 

2. Nox

 

Since you really like this Character, who was the only really memorable things about Krraeginn: Age of Darkness when I tried to run it on here, I would suggest adding him if you wanted to. You can get the decals from Scorp if you ask him, and here's the list of paces that I used to make him:

 

Lego Pieces: This minifigure, a black cape, and a ovoid shield

Grey market pieces: This helmet and this sword

Those three can be added as spectators. Perc will be added as a trans yellow stud. I'll look into picking up Caiden's decals. I'll probably request a set of decals to make Nox as well.

Of course, this is assuming that the creator of these characters allows me to add them.

Grounds for the coliseum have been laid out. Construction will begin on the coliseum tomorrow! With any luck, by the end of next week, I'll be roughly about 75% done with the actual coliseum.

 

Basically, I've got the make the wall roughly about 10-15 bricks high. Variations will be made specifically to get the layout for the two Admin seating areas. Mods will be given front row seating, with Novas being in the section right behind them. All the freebies and jobbers will be crammed into the back.

 

Remember folks, you have plenty of time to submit minifigs! Freebies may submit up to 5 patrons. Novas may submit 5 patrons and 1 combatant. Mods may submit 5 patrons, 1 combatant, and 1 VIP fig. Admins get their special fig, elite guard, 1 combatant, and up to 5 patrons.

 

Last note, if you are a member of SSLF and I happen to have a previously submitted figure, chances are they will get used as a combatant, because let's be real here, it's not an SSLF build without yall!

 

Anywho, remember you have up to August 3rd! The closer the day gets, the harder it may be to obtain certain things within a time frame.

 

Oh, another decal order will go out tomorrow! For both custom decals (looking at you Nox and Garandros), and stuff in the store (Caiden and some nameless jobbers). So if you need decals for a fig, just PM me or drop a message in the Discord!

 

Thanks,

- Nick

Progress!

 

The lower half of the coliseum is almost done! I'm waiting for a bunch of Lion Head pieces:

 

30274.jpg?0

 

Once those are in, I'll add some chains and BrickWarriors' torches to the wall. Also, harpoons for spikes will be added in the sections with 8 holes and the masonry bricks. The inside will be filled with support layers then covered with dark bley plates. That will finish off the lower section of the coliseum. Once that's finished, the two side areas with angled bricks will be reserved for the admins. Everything else will be for the civies and the very front will be sectioned off for the mods, novas, and arena warden.

 

The arena itself (the area that still needs to be covered with dark tan) will be filled with a couple of pitfall traps. Fortunately, since we don't have any real magic users here, no need to add spell effects. Oh, and to add to the arena flair, expect to see plenty of blood, gold, and oddly enough, roses!

 

Now, time for figure updates!

 

As far as special minifigs go:

- Decals for Caiden, Nox, and Garandros have been ordered and are on their way.

- 8 more combatant slots are still open!

- Plenty of room for unique patrons as well! Just let me know!

- At the end of June, custom shield decals will be put in!

 

Now then, on to something I haven't bothered to address! Who the heck are your figs fighting?

 

Great question!

 

It seems the tales of SSLFs triumph over Agruz have traveled far! That being said, it would appear as though Necros and the Maukr have decided to accept the challenge. This should prove to be more than a challenge for such accomplished warriors! Oh, and he'll be bringing his wonderful Iron Golem along as well! Yeah, this is going to be one heck of a battle!

Here's Hori if you want to use him as a spectator:

 

Head: this head plus this white version of this beard and hair

Cape: Grey Cape

Body/Legs: Gandalf Torso and Legs

Weapon: this sword

Shield: A Brickforge Battle shield with the ram decal from Scorp's Northern Guard pack, but with the colors changed to the Horngofgasta goat.

 

If you don't use him, that's fine.

Hori is approved. Probably going to opt out of the shield (no BF battle shields available), but he'll be there. 

 

Keep 'em coming folks!

 

Also, due to the current suggestions, I'm going to reduce the combatant list to 10!

Early update!

The lower coliseum is finished, minus the dangly bits and two 16x16 dark bley plates (those are on the way). Construction of the upper coliseum will commence over the weekend and into the next week! The current schedule is as follows:

 

- Scorp's Admin area.

- Mav's Admin area.

- Mod & Nova area.

- Pleb area.

 

Due to the overall amount of SSLF minifigs, the Mod and Nova sections were merged. This section will hold all submitted figures!

 

Also, since the number of combatants has shrunk. The five additional shields will hold the following:

 

- SSLF Logo

- Wulfgard Logo

- BrickForge Logo

- BrickWarriors Logo

- BrickArms Logo

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!

Spectacular work, Nightstalker!  I particularly like how the Admins get colored seats and "rugs" in their boxes.  Little customized details like that are always a welcome addition.

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.

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

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 greatly admire and appreciate the progress you're making, and my compliments to Scorp for those gorgeous shield designs!

 

This project shines with so much passion and creativity.  Like I said on Discord, you're a credit to the forum and to AFOLs in general.

These look amazing, Nightstalker! I especially love the shield with the Alliance flag on it: Scorp did a great job! I can't wait to see the final moc!

 

I'd love to see the description for each one.
