Down to the wire, as per my norm.  I got a little over-ambitious with the minifigs I wanted to include, and had to cut corners on the MOC itself...and said minifigs.  Yay, time management!

Ohohoh, we've got a demonkin fight on our hands, ladies and gentlemen.  Place yer bets!  I've got three denarii on Kye, our favorite spiky boi. (No matter how adorably terrified he is of Hanan.  Do you happen to have a full frame, without text, of his face there, Scorp?  Definitely meme-worthy.)

 

 

Daemonique's attitude was delightfully over the top in this page, can't wait to see how this fight turns out!

"His eye, if you can hit it," Cyrus said as he unslung his crossbow, loaded it, and took aim at the Cyclops' unarmored nether-regions "though hitting him in his...jambags might slow him down quicker."

 

Kate sneered and winked at her helmeted companion.  “Oh trust me, boyo, I can hit his eye. You just keep aiming at his crotch, I won’t judge.”  She totally would, though. It was more fun that way.

 

"WE HAVE NO QUARREL WITH YOU, BUT WE WILL SHOOT IF WE HAVE TO!"

 

Oh, bother, that was less fun.  Silly Cresty wanted to try talking it out anyway?  Kate just kept aiming, focusing in on the giant eye that was steadily becoming an easier target...

 

The attempt at diplomacy seemed to work, though, as the cyclops drew to a stop as suddenly as he had begun his charge.  Chest heaving with exertion and rage, he pointed his battleaxe in the adventurers’ direction...and started to laugh. An honest-to-gods belly laugh, it was.  

 

He then managed to gasp between amused spasms, “You...you have some courage, interlopers, I’ll give you that.”  

 

Kate leaned back with mouth agape.  “The hells? It actually speaks common?”  

 

This drew the cyclops’ ire AND attention to her, and he gestured angrily with his weapon.  “Yes, HE does, and I understand you just fine, too. Now stop pointing that toy at me before I lose my patience.”

 

Instead of complying, the Inquisitor once more levelled her weapon at the giant’s face.  “No one threatens me, big guy. How about you stop wavin’ that axe at me before I pincushion your eye?”  She closed one of her own eyes and scowled as she adjusted her aim. “It’d be really easy at this range, and I doubt you’ve got a spare lyin’ around.”

 

This earned a sharp growl from the cyclops, who was ignoring the mouthy Inquisitor while pleading to the sky, “Hephaestus’ heaving bellows, do these humans have no manners?”  One hand shouldered his axe while the other pointed a finger at Crestwell. “I will allow your elder to explain your intentions. The rest of you will be quiet, or you will be removed from my property by force.”  It was clear he had no other options on the table, and he had now drawn within easy striking range, though he appeared to have no intention of doing so...for now.

 

“Sure, no pressure, Elder Crestwell,” Kate muttered gleefully.  Bullseye offered no commentary as he crept up next to her.  Recognizing the scent of the large creature that they had been tracking, he straightened his tail and aimed his snout at the cyclops, indicating its presence to mistress.  He was being helpful.

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.

Yep, the hood is painted, and the cape is - like most of my capes - just cut by hand from bias tape (quilt binding). But before you buy anything for an Adrianya 'fig, you may want to wait for your Loot Bag to arrive. ;) It should come today.

 

I've been looking into getting a laser machine and using it to cut capes to sell on my site, like those other guys.

 

I had a feeling she would be included, thank you so much!

 

I'd be all for that!  Ordering regular Lego capes on Bricklink can sometimes be a bit pricey, plus you'd be able to offer so many more color options.

 

I'm curious. Does that mean that everybody gets the same minifigure in the Pateron Loot-bag, or do they get their own minifigure?

 

When a new minifigure gets released, he seems to put one into each loot bag.  I've never compared results with Nighstalker or anyone else at the Loot bag stage or above, but the results appear to be similar (accounting for differences in reward tier, of course).
